We’re *almost* to the midpoint of 2020. With all that is going on, it feels like a good time to do a little refresher on your credit score, what to do with your stimulus check, and other great money tips to help you get through this year.

As our guest, Lauren Silbert, the VP, General Manager of The Balance says, literally no one could’ve predicted what is going on right now in the world and the financial impacts it would have. If anything, that should give you a little sense of relief to let go of any negative thoughts you’re having about why you did or didn’t make certain money choices before a global pandemic and focus no on what you can do going forward.
