Simon also includes steps on when and how to get started.

Our second interview is with Jonathan Leane, Chief Innovation Officer at Compare Club. Jonathan explains how you can find out your credit score and why it’s important. He also shares useful tips for those interested in accessing their ‘three-digit code’
Finally, Shelley Winkle from Queensland Tourism takes us off the beaten track but still only a short drive from Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The small towns and sites along the way sound fantastic and the folk there would certainly appreciate our support after the devastating bushfires and drought. Inspiring tales from rural Queensland.

    I seem to recall an article a few years ago, I think it was in the UK, the article related to people checking their credit score and the information was being on sold to other sources, some of these sources ended up using the information for things like identity theft and mass advertising scams, take care with anything like this, they may have got their act together?
