How Profit & Loss Review Works on the RIG

What it is NOT.

Us controlling your money.

Everything about the R.I.G. is suggestive. If we think you’re spending too much money on Starbucks every week we will probably advise you to bring coffee in a thermos. But how many Venti lattes you buy is up to you.

Tax filing.

Our P & L review is meant to compliment your bookkeeping, not replace it. You will sill need to ensure your quarterly taxes are completed. If you need a bookkeeper, you can upgrade to Gold R.I.G. membership.

Anything permanent.

Credit repair services is not a program that lowers monthly payments or arranges settlement payoffs. While we can, and will, advise you on what debts to pay down and when, we don’t really get too involved in requesting/offering payment arrangements to creditors (although we do sometimes). We can however, make a recommendation to a non-profit credit counseling organization that can assist you in these matters.

Entirely up to us.

If you are truly serious about building your personal credit you are going to need to be a part of the process with us. This means you might need to make some changes to the way you have previously done things (or not done them!). It might not be easy at first, but it will be worth it.
