How To Scrub Your Credit Report Clean Of Costly Errors

Great Tips. Looking at my report this week. Follow Daniels Daily Reader!

There are all sorts of errors that can sneak onto your credit reports — an account that’s not even yours, a “late payment” that was actually made on time, a paid debt that’s still listed as in collections.

This can spell trouble. Your credit reports are used to calculate your all-important credit score, which determines your access to loans, credit cards, apartments and even jobs.

According to an FTC study from last year, one in 20 people have substantial credit report errors — enough to result in at least a 25-point credit score jump once fixed. That’s nothing to sneeze at.

Errors can land on your report when lenders, banks or credit bureaus get it wrong. Nevertheless, it’s your responsibility to get them fixed. “Credit reporting agencies don’t have an obligation to correct anything on a credit report unless you tell them it’s wrong,” says John Ulzheimer, a credit expert…

On Tuesday, July 29th I had the opportunity to attend a listening party for Bright Lightz at Daddy’s House Recording Studios. The rapper released his latest mixtape Blinded.The room was filled with influencers, bloggers and supporters. I enjoyed the music, and the event as a whole. As the music lover that I am, I have attended quite a few listening parties. Honestly the music was great, but the event execution was so poor they were better off emailing the link around for people to enjoy the music then to half-a** an event. I am a firm believer that if someone does something right you should acknowledge them. I applaud Bright Lightz and his team for not only producing quality music, but also hosting a great event.

Below are tips artists can use for their next listening…

All dads should do this to set the standard and boundaries for when their little girls grow up and have their first dates.


The video begins with a man excited for his first date. He puts on a tie and you may notice he’s wearing a wedding ring.

As he walks out the door he takes a deep breath and then turns back around.

When the door opens up, you can’t help but to smile!

Plan & PRepare

It can be hard swallowing reality sometimes.  There’s always room for improvement so when you realize you’re not where you want to be at the moment, it can be a little discouraging sometimes.

As a publicist, it is our job to alert the media of the relevant problems and show them the solution with your client’s product/services.  By understand what is “newsworthy” we can understand common problems among our target audience and present them with an answer to help solve our problems.  Consider the same notion for your own personal/professional life.

Right now you may not be where you are but understand where you’re currently at in your personal/professional life.  What we’re constantly forgetting to realize (I know I’m guilty) is that nine times out of ten, you’re already blessed where you’re at because face it…it can always be worse.

Now that you’ve assessed where you are and you know where you want to be, you can draw out a basic plan to put in motion to achieve all the goals to get you where you desire.  For me the journey is what I’m looking forward to but you must “PRepare” yourself for all possible outcomes.  This includes your planning successfully working or more than likely not taking you where you expected to be once you’ve done all you could.  If a reporter never responded to your emails or calls, then as my mentor would say in true Anje fashion, keep it moving.  If a job rejected you, consider calling the person that contacted you about the rejection to understand in further detail why you were not chosen if it was not provided.  If you broke up with your significant other, although it may hurt, you must understand why in the end it didn’t work and move on.

Plan & PRepare for all possibilities of your actions.

#Smartmarketing Beyonce’s Surprise to the World!

Image  #nomarketing = #smartmarketing

All year Beyonce had to listen to complaints from just about everyone because she has not debut new music.  Well in her words….”SURPRISE”!!! Beyonce shocked the world and drops a visual, self-titled album last night while everyone was sleeping.  No marketing or promotion beforehand from the “Flawless” singer, nor was it really required.  Already, Beyonce is number 1 in multiple countries (see my repost instagram pic from her stylist Ty Hunter @Johnson_Cassie).  This is just part 1 and it’s all because of her supportive fans, also known as the Beyhive.

I really loved the fact that Beyonce featured Ashley Everett, my favorite backup dancer, in her Heaven video not only as a dancer but as an actress.  Another favorite of mine, Todrick Hall, choreographed part of Beyonce’s Blow video and was also a featured guest star!  Beyonce’s daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, even had credit as an artist!

#smartmarketing #genuismarketing

My favorite songs at the moment are Flawless, Drunk in Love, and Blow.  Ghost is visually my favorite video.

What is your favorite song and video from the new album?
