Credit Repair is something I really enjoy, this is a small portion of why I wanted to start my own business. However, the main objective for my business is to aid in the increase of our State’s National Credit Score here in Mississippi. Mississippi has the lowest credit score amongst the other 49 states in the U.S. Therefore, I saw this as a valuable opportunity to utilize my expertise and accomplish a difficult task that is much bigger and meaningful than myself.” Mr. Carlisle stated.
