Installment loans, no late pays, carry a credit balance less than 30% of the total line...you'll see a noticeable increase in your score every 6 months.

Time, mostly. Dispute legitimately wrong information or fraud. Stop carrying a balance.

definitely still keep a balance. Creditors want to see you can handle credit, not run from it. You need to use <30% of your available credit and I would say pay it off monthly. My advice is to put bills and such on a cc and pay off the complete balance when it's time to make those "minimum payments". NYCNerd is spot on. Definitely dispute incorrect info, and try to use your credit lines so they avoid being nullified by the provider (average length of credit is a huge metric -my oldest card got closed due to non use and shot my score down 30 pts because my average credit life went from 7 to 3)

33 F. All of my friends are having babies. I get really lonely when they aren’t available because they are either tired from child rearing or are actively rearing their children. Happens every weekend, lots of evenings. On top of it, I feel outside of female work groups because I don’t have kids and just can’t talk about the things they talk about. I don’t know how to make this feeling go away, but being exhausted and putting my career on the line for a kid is not the answer. Anyone else?

Interviewing tomorrow and the company has communicated their intention to make an offer by the end of next week. 1) would you take this offer so close to busy season; 2) is the quick hiring decision a red flag? Enough to steer clear of position? It’s a promotion to manager for me and - little over 25% base pay increase.

Honest question. When a client asks you a question that you need to refer to the billing attorney (assume it makes sense to do so and copy the client on convo in adding them in) are you all refraining from using the term billing attorney to clarify a role or is it pretty common to do so in client communications? Had one attorney show a sensitivity to the term but never had that happen before. Wondering if that is a common or uncommon sinsitivity?
