    Hello All,
    One thing that a lot of folks here do not understand is that it`s a good thing to buy the Credit Builder Package from DNB.  I have always bought the package and I have ALWAYS  generated a paydex score within the 45 days.  Yes, you could just request one and wait for it come in your email for free, but with the nature of businesses... time is money!! 
    I do operate my very own Business Consulting Company in DC so if anyone might be interested please don`t hesitate to ask.
    Good Luck All!!newfoundwealthking4/22/2008 1:06 AM

    As of July 15, 2008 you can no longer get business credit without personally guaranteeing the account if your business has no credit history with the following companies; Staples, Office Depot, Office Max, Dell.  Has anyone else had this problem?  All the account specialist would say is as of July 15, 2008 they changed their credit criteria.  I`m heart broken.

    After Applying with one, Some lady called me and, the funny thing about it was, she was telling me about the packages. She explained to me that there are two ways of getting one. You apply for one and you purchase their package.
    You wait till you do business with a company and they report your rating to DNB.
    So basically, you will get one eventually. The only thing is you wont be able to add trade lines and stuff of that nature.
    Here is something for you guys. I tried opening an account with SAM`s Club and they are one of the hardest people to get credit with. Try elsewhere. Any Suggestions?

    PageJames gave a lot of very good information. He gave so much it might make your head spin! You have to take it in chunks and the first thing you have to do is build your business foundation so you can get approved for all of that credit PageJames threw at you. If you do not do it right you will get rejected over and over again even though the info he gave you was good.
    There are seven steps to your business foundation:
    1. Form a corporation or LLC.
    2. Get a corporate tax id/EIN from IRS (an LLC is a form of corp)
    Do not use a sole proprietor or partnership tax id/EIN
    3. Get a business license from your city
    4.Get a dedicated bus. phone and have it listed with directory assistance.
    5. Open a business checking account (can do w/ $100)
    6. Get a faxline (can get one online for $9.99 a month)
    7. Get your Dunns # from Dunn & Bradstreet
         (800) 825-3867 ext. 1851 Curtis
    After you get all of that you need to start getting creditors to give you a credit line without credit checks who will report to Dunn & Bradstreet. You have to spend $60 or more minimum in one billing cycle to get reported. I will even give you the first one that will give you credit:
    Nebs (office Supplies)
    (800) 722-7090 (credit dept.)
