FT. LAUDERDALE, FL – CEO of Uptrend Credit Solutions, Wes Paul, recently unveiled his company’s shift from a single-focused credit repair agency to a full fintech platform offering a wide array of credit reporting, restoration, and education services. Over the next few months, Uptrend will roll out multiple financial literacy programs and services that help people repair their credit – while also offering credit monitoring and education as part of the new company focus. Uptrend has always had a strong interest in helping to educate underserved and minority communities, especially those hardest hit financially by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The news was released when Intuit recently purchased Credit Karma for over 8 billion dollars, I find it most intriguing because I know that the credit repair/monitoring business is still missing a crucial element. When I started this journey, I knew immediately I wanted to do something more than credit repair. And primarily, that has to do with relationships – financial relationships with credit companies and banks, yes – but also personal relationships with the people involved. After I attended a credit conference last year, I was able to begin building the necessary relationships with industry reps and executives to start putting the pieces in place for this business.”
We stand out from a saturated industry mainly because we ventured into both sides,” explained Paul. “We once shifted from being a service-based business to a product-based one, and now, we will shift once more from a product-based business coming back to a service-based one. We have accumulated a great deal of data from helping thousands of credit-repair clients. We know what they need, and we know what works. As part of our journey as a service-based company, we offer affordable prices for the service/help we provide – giving subprime communities and minorities the opportunity to improve their credit without breaking the bank.”

Wes Paul’s background and How it Become a Motivation:
“I was a server when the pandemic came, and I lost my job,” said Paul. “But before being a server, I always had a deep passion for money and personal finance. It is a topic I have studied widely and deeply. When I lost that job, I was at my lowest point, so I knew I had to do something. And that’s how I started a credit repair company. About a month and a half later, I was able to start hiring people and build a team. You can still follow your dreams in this country, but it starts with repairing your credit – with getting a financial education. And people ask me when is the best time to take a risk in life, I always tell them the simple answer: the best time is when you have nothing.”
“The best advice I can give is to believe in yourself, and I say that because, along your journey of entrepreneurship, doubt and failing moments are going to come. You cannot have doubt and failing moments make you believe you are a failure. SO, BELIEVE IN YOURSELF BECAUSE IF YOU REALLY BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, YOU COULD REALLY OVERCOME ANYTHING SPECIALLY IN THIS DAY OF AGE.”
