10. Look For Apps That Can Help

Experian and a few others have apps that will provide recommendations based on your credit score.

2. You Have A Backup Plan For A Delayed Or No IPO

Billion-dollar-revenue companies get their IPOs pulled! IPOs are expensive and risky. Having a plan for a delayed IPO—or possibly no IPO—is a must.
