How Credit Is a Marathon

How Credit is a Marathon

In a race, the competitors start at the starting line. They line up and go, and everyone runs along the same course toward the same finish line. But what if the runners didn’t know where the starting line was? And what if they had different signs telling them where to go? You wouldn’t have a race; you would have chaos.

There is an almost overwhelming amount of information out there about credit. So one way to help simplify and streamline the information that you need to know is to think of it like a marathon — a credit marathon. Each one of us is running a type of race with our credit. Here’s what the race looks like and how you can win your event.
