Today we’d like to introduce you to Shaneika Goodman.
Hi Shaneika, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
I began my entrepreneurial journey without having realized it initially. Approximately six years ago, I found myself in a frustrating situation when I was preparing to relocate from Maryland to California to pursue my doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology. While preparing for this move, I encountered a roadblock. I was unable to get approved for my graduate school loan because I had medical bills in collection.
Ultimately, I ended up paying off this debt and this is when I began to understand how important it is to establish, repair, and/or maintain good credit. Fast forward to 5-6 years later, I own a 6-figure credit repair company, where I provide credit rehabilitation, as well as credit education to individuals in almost all 50 states. Our mission is not only to repair credit but to help individuals understand the factors of credit and their implications. I enjoy traveling around the world, teaching what I love and helping people obtain what they once thought was impossible, such as buying a home.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It has not been a smooth road but well worth it. Credit Repair is a process and not everyone has patience, therefore clients can become frustrated when they do not see results as fast as they would like. However, we inform our clients prior to signing up what the expectations are and factors that can impede on the process. Aside from this, many of our clients have reported being scammed by other credit repair companies prior to working with my company, so we understand their anxiety and work with them.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
I am a serial entrepreneur. I own a credit repair company and I am also a real estate and trucking and transportation investor. In addition, I am also a Clinical Psychologist who took a leave of absence from the field in July of 2020, after providing therapeutic services for ten years. As a Psychologist, I specialized in forensics and child and family therapy. I have worked in 3 different jails/prisons, where I provided inmates with individual therapy and group counseling. In addition, I have worked in inpatient psychiatric facilities, substance abuse treatment centers, community mental health, and most recently, private practice. I have serviced individuals and families between the ages of 4 and 60. Aside from this, I also conducted psychological testing. Regardless of which hat I am wearing, I enjoy helping others find meaning, value, and ways to cope, as well as guiding them in becoming the best versions of themselves. When I am not working, I enjoy international and domestic traveling, where I am able to engage in different cultures and experiences.
What would you say have been one of the most important lessons you’ve learned?
The most important lesson I have learned is to take care of my mental and physical health. Self-care is so important for various reasons. We cannot pour into others from an empty cup. I am continuously learning how to protect my peace as well as balance my personal and business life. It is also important to set boundaries with yourself and others. Boundaries are required in order to have healthy relationships and interactions with others.
