Join Mike Cavaggioni and Al Jones on the 65th episode of the Average Joe Finances Podcast as they talk about what financial decisions you can make to achieve a perfect credit score. Al is a personal finance author and a game developer in Phoenix, Arizona. After years of making poor financial decisions, thinking it was the norm, he decided to turn things around by learning finance, specifically credit repair. Today, Al shares his experiences, from barely living on a low credit rating to raising his FICO score to a perfect 850.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

● What to look forward to when reading My Journey from Bad to Excellent Credit.

● How society’s perception of financial literacy has changed over the years.

● The power of “failure” and why we should always see it as a learning experience.

● How the evolution of technology continues to change the game in financing.

● The value of working with bill collectors and generating credit reports.

● And much more!

About Al Jones:

Al Jones is a native son of Phoenix, Arizona, and a 1984 graduate of Maryvale High School. And for a while, he also served in the United States army. After being honorably discharged from the US Army, Al moved back to his hometown and began creating user-friendly games for mobile devices, live shows, playing cards, and more.

Al also wrote a book called My Journey from Bad to Excellent Credit, where he discusses financial mistakes and a case of identity theft that tanked his score, leading him to many other issues. At the time, he knew something had to change, so he started educating himself about credit repair. As a result, his FICO score was raised from an eight credit rating to a perfect score of 850.
