Business Credit Tip

If you're a sole proprietor or a business owner with fewer than 20 employees, your personal and business credit scores are closely linked in the eyes of banks and other lenders. So it's important to take steps to protect both. You should monitor, evaluate and protect your credit standing just as you would protect any other business or personal assets.
