Get a bunch of credit cards

Buy goods that will increase in price

Sell those goods at a profit

Don't pay 1 bill

Keep all the cash

Pay for everything in cash and stay off the grid


**Plan for American 2013 and Beyond**

All of this mumbo jumbo about credit was great advice, prior to September 11, 2001

Now it's every man/woman/child for themselves

If you don't have a credit card, get one--even if you only use it for gas and then pay it all right away. There's just no way around it...you NEED credit. OK, there is one way around it and that is to pay for everything in cash for the rest of your life, but that's not the way to build financial success. In order to buy things like houses, cars, rental property, businesses etc. you need credit. The only way to get credit it is to either establish it yourself, or become an authorized user on someone else's credit card. Make sure if you do this, it's some one that you know has good credit and pays their bills on time. Otherwise, they will drag your credit score down with theirs. But anyone that says you don't need credit is lying to you.
Aint that the truth & alot of these youngsters, hell even grown a.ss men idolizing entertainers selling you the illusion that they pay for everything in cash. What they don't show & tell you is that they have excellent credit. An alternative or concurrent way of building credit along with credit cards are secured loans which credit unions usally offer to build credit "credit builder loan". You can add anywhere from $250 on up on secured cards but I'd gradually increase the limits to atleast 1,000. So when you finally do move on to unsecured let's say after 6 months they will offer higher limits once they check your credit & see the limits your already managing responsibly. But with about 3-5 cards managed correctly, you'll have great credit in about 6 months.

If you have errors on your credit report, write the credit bureau to dispute it, and the have 30 days to research and answer you back. If they fail to meet the 30 time requirement, they have to remove it.

Could you live off a secured loan while trying to find another job?

It depends on the collateral. But once you get a steady job I'd apply for a checking line of credit so that won't have to be your only option. Most credit unions offer it. That's why I'm glad I'm with Navy Federal their LOC goes up to 15k. I'm only at 5k but now that I have it I can ask for an increase every 6 months so I should have the full 15k by the end of the year. But I'd say a secured loan is the best choice if you're not working. It's better than fu*king with those payday or title loans they will charge you 100% interest or more.
