Larry Chiang, President and CEO Duck9.com

YouTube VIDEO

I'll shoot you w/a nerf gun if you don't manage your credit.

11:11 is my goal of getting duck9 consumers lots of 1s.

24 1's in a row equals a 750 FICO.

A "one" is an on-time payment in credit reporting code.

A '9'=charged off bad-debt. You wanna duck 9s.

Duck9 = Deep Underground Credit Knowledge (Duck 9's on your credit report. 9's are charge-offs)

"Making sure college credit virgins get deflowered right since 2004"

"Larry Chiang is an expert at the dark art of FICO score preparation"

Women don’t apply for jobs until they fit 100% of the qualifications. Men apply at 50% & plan to figure the rest out. #JanesofDigital #SMX

Let us contrast FITYMI versus #ImposterSyndrome when it comes to being a jobapreneur. Women rarely Fake It Til You Make It. They wait until they’re 100% qualified.
