Credit Repair
Good credit is more important now than ever, and the credit repair industry is booming because of it. Credit Repair Nerds is leading the way.

Credit Repair Services

Scott Been, Owner/CEO of Credit improvement Nerds, recently sat down with us for an interview to debate his successful business, which to date is 40+ licensees strong and adding sign ups every week. Been lets us in on the techniques to his success and the way big he sees his business getting back in the next five years.

What’s special about Credit improvement Nerds?

For starters, we're the only credit repair company expanding with this pace. We are in an industry that is booming today due to the importance of credit. I tell our clients and licensees that one could barely wake up and obtain out of bed without someone pulling your credit. Things are credit-based nowadays, so our services are essential more than ever. Plus, it’s all web-driven. There isn’t a need for brick-and-mortar or office space. Software and technology allows us run this business from around the globe or poolside, drinking margaritas.

What is the idea behind Credit score improvement Nerds?

Originally, it absolutely was to grow our already successful business. Then it turned into a mission for help our licensees build their unique businesses. We spend time and effort with our licensees, training them to be a success in this industry. As well as in return, they produce, which in returns grows our brand on a national level.

So how exactly does Credit Repair Nerds can rival its competition?

Ah, we now have ZERO competition in this industry. We are the leaders and can continue to be the leaders in the credit repair business. In terms of other franchise opportunities, well, I know don’t get into that. We all have a place in this country to develop a business and be successful. We just think that we have the minimum overhead of all industries right this moment. Over 95 percent of our own licensees work from home. You can’t beat that.

What do you look for in a potential licensee?

That’s easy, motivation and drive. Truth be told, we don’t just let anyone join our team. You must be willing to listen and take instructions. The company plan is already a proven winner. You only need to duplicate it. There isn’t a desire to reinvent the wheel.

Where does one see Credit Repair Nerds in five years?

I love this question because that's how I run this business. I’m never looking at today or tomorrow. Every move we make would be to put us in a better position years from now. But, in five years, we should be 400+ licensees strong and growing since the industry changes.

Is it possible to describe a typical day inside the life of a Credit restoration Nerds licensee?

Well, should they follow the business model, they’ll find themselves working about 10 hours a week, making a good six-figure salary. But, in the beginning, there is a lot of training. Live webinars, one-on-one training, you name it. We have to do what we have to do to get everyone on top of things.

What’s your background?

I’m Ten years into the business now. Before that, I had been slaving for corporate America, selling cars. I loved the auto business, but the hours wore thin i quit and started this provider out of my one-bedroom apartment. To date, we are 34 licensees strong and adding sign ups every week. By the end of 2015, we should be around 75 licensees. Along with the crazy part is, we started licensing last March. So, in mere three short months, we added 34 licensees.

What motivates you to definitely keep going?

The fear of experiencing a real job. That is certainly my motivation. Daily I wake up remembering what it really was like setting up 60-70hrs a week selling cars and achieving nothing to show for this. I am so anti-corporate. If you ask me, they are the enemy i run my business therefore. I wake up having a chip on my shoulder and I use that as fuel to prevent become lazy. Training and teaching new licensees the organization is another aspect of what keeps me going. Every licensee has their very own learning curve. I enjoy trying to find that curve and also to straighten it out. I have discovered myself becoming a professor or, as our own licensees call me, a master. It’s fun building people up. As one of the people I admire, Mark Cuban, says, “We don’t build businesses, we build people and the ones people build businesses.”

If you decide to start again, what would you do differently?

Good question. I wouldn’t took so long! I should are already doing this five years ago, but as my father told me, “Son, you just weren’t ready.” So, in addition to that, I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Please tell us your secret to success…

This really is going to sound weird, but I don’t look at myself as a success yet. I look at people like Mark Cuban and strive to get to that level. Should i ever become a billionaire? Eh, that's doubtful. But that won’t stop me from trying. I’m sure that question is better inspired to my licensees. They look approximately me, so your, I guess I am successful. The afternoon when others looked at me as a leader, I reckon that that would be considered successful. I want to see others succeed, and when I can help them make it, then it’s a success.

Exactly what is the worst job you have ever had and what would you learn from it?

Hmm, working for my father. He owned a construction company. I hated slamming a hammer for a paycheck. I was dealing with the Houston humidity every day. I guess in the event it was my worst job, looking back, maybe it hasn’t been so bad after all.

What is the one thing that really excites you?

Having the capacity to walk into a Ferrari dealership and paying cash (wink wink). On a serious note, just growing the business. I am now 38 years and I’ve realized I’m not where I’m at today without help. Being able to build the loan Repair Nerds business and grow it the right way in the industry full of scams is the thing that excites me. It may have taken longer than expected, however pushed through the walls.

Any final words for aspiring entrepreneurs?

Yes! Easily can build a business, you can as well. I know that sounds so cliché, however i started this business with nothing. And when I mean nothing, What i'm saying is nothing. I quit the automobile business, got on unemployment and as opposed to blowing my unemployment similar to most folks do, I began my business. It was tough. I had a hard time keeping the lights on and paying rent, but in year three, I was clearing six figures and following that, I put the throttle down. There are a lot of negative nellies in the process telling me I was nuts. I ignored them and surrounded myself with other like-minded people. I pushed through. I didn’t give up. Did I have days to weeks where I thought it will all end? Heck yeah, however pushed through those thoughts and stayed pinpoint the bigger picture. Now, the actual! I can relate. Like Mr. Wonderful says, “I’ve been rich and I’ve been poor, rich is better.” I know that sounds elitist, but it’s true. I tell my licensees, ‘Look, I’ve already been through it. I started from scratch. It can be done. You just have to block out your outside interference, inside a winning team and consume instruction. Once you allow you to ultimately do that, then it just all fits in place. Before you know it, you take control of your local market and it’s off to the races.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
