From the struggles of Cedrick Phillips comes a new affair for Racine. After being incarcerated, he struggled to find a job. He’s taken matters into his own hands and now Phillips is building his way. In May 2020, Keys 2 Credit Financial Solutions opened.
âI gave him a chance to create something. I had to learn the hard way. I had a credit score of 678 before I went to jail. I came out with a credit score of 387. I couldn’t even borrow advice if I wanted to, âsays Phillips.
Keys 2 Credit Financial Solutions seeks to help achieve greater financial literacy and understanding in Racine. Phillips is particularly interested in helping low-income people, minorities, and citizens with ITIN numbers.
Phillips says he’s “creating a service that has helped me after giving up a criminal lifestyle to improve my finances for me and my son.”
Black business owner
Keys 2 Credit Financial Solutions’s mission is to teach others to stay ahead of the curve. As a black business owner, Phillips finds the motivation to help others. âThat Racine is ranked third worst city for blacks, that’s why my mission is strong,â says the CEO.
Phillips is 30 credits away from his Diploma in Graphic Communication and Certification in Photography from Gateway Technical College. With his career change, he plans to go back to school for marketing communications.
âA new passion hit me,â says Phillips. He is now a Certified Credit Repair Specialist and Board Certified Credit Counselor.
Helping others take advantage of credit and teaching clients how to gain and maintain financial freedom are just a few examples of what Keys 2 Credit Financial Solutions can do. Educating people on how to use credit to become homeowners is also a high priority for Phillips and his team. He has a virtual assistant and an employee for printing.
