62 years, never used credit- ready to build business credit

Recommended Posts

Wow, it has been 12-14 years or so since I found this site. I am truly grateful to you all.  I have learned personal credit and business credit from these forums.


I never thought I would be in this position but since I am I thought I would ask for you all guidance.  What's amazing is how nervous I am despite knowing some credit cards, cloc to go for, I still find myself extremely nervous about my next steps. I just want to make sure I am getting the best guidance as possible.


In the last year , I have been able to save 100k.   I was looking to start a business but really didn't know where to start. Then my father-in law told me he is 62 years and has never used his credit.  When I checked EQ, EX, TS, his scores were 0,0 and L1.  I never knew a person could have a L1 credit score. I tried googling it but nothing came up.


He told me he was interested in helping my wife and I buy an apartment buildings 25 unit and up with good cashflow  and amass 300k business credit. He also said he wanted to gain as many personal credit cards as possible to build a business for my children, his grand children.


So, I guess my question is where should he start with business credit cards goals (300k-1million)- I asked the personal credit forum about the personal credit steps. 



Please help. Thanks

Welcome to Creditboards!

We hope that you find what you're looking for here.

Some helpful tips:

  • Your post may not get a reply right away. Don't be discouraged, this is a very busy board. If it falls off of the first page, feel free to reply to your post yourself, with the word *bump* in the text. This will *bump* your post back up to the top of the board.
  • If you haven't yet, take a peek at out Newbies Section. Everything that you need to know is in that forum, for the most part. It's a lot of reading, we know, but this credit stuff can have a steep learning curve. In no time, you'll be posting like the pros!
  • If you find that someone is discourteous to you, use the REPORT button at the top right of every post - that will ensure that a moderator or admin looks at the post and decides if it is against the TOS.
  • Off -topic posts should go in the General Forum.


Again, welcome to the CreditBoards family!
