First of I really wanted to thank the webmasters and posters of this board in giving a forum and advice to me when I was starting my credit cleanup process. This board as well as my own blood sweat and tears are responsible for taking my credit rating from almost unsavable to the point where I have a "clean slate" again. My current score on my account is in the low 600's and is totally blank of any negatives. The problem is that it is also blank of any positives for the most part as well. A year or so ago I did get an authorized account from my step father who has immaculate credit and a holder of several invitation only ultra premium cards. That in itself added over 100 points to my score. What I was hoping for from this point is some input from those on this board who have gone from scratch to super juicy credit in as short a time as possilbe. If you could give me some ideas to take me to the next level and beyond I would truely appreciate it. Please spell out the theory and practice of what you have done and what you have achieved so that I might follow in your footsteps. In a couple years I would like to have a at my disposal between 50-100k of credit in low fee cards. If anyone has any advice on building lines of credit type accounts as well as any ideas about building business credit that would be much appreciated as well. Ok let the game plans rip. Sincerely, Travis U.
