Avoiding Business Fraud with Confidence

Business fraud is easily prevented when you do your due diligence. However, the concept of Due Diligence is both confusing and terrifying to most business owners. People constantly come up to us and, in hushed, confidential tones, confess they have no idea how to do due diligence for their business. They’re typically scared of trusting the wrong person, but they don’t know how to make sure to find the right one.

That’s where we come in. By demystifying the due diligence process, we empower business owners to take control of their decision-making process and operate with confidence. We help them verify that the people they involve in their business are who they say they are and can do what they say they can do. This minor tweak to their business approach changes EVERYTHING.

Imagine this scenario: Your business needs a new website. You open the yellow pages, contact your network and compile a list of possible service-providers. You call Jack Press, WordPress Extraordinaire. At your scheduled meeting, he delivers an amazing presentation full of colorful, shiny objects and glowing testimonials. At the end of the meeting, Jack moves in for the close, “So, when would you like to get started?” Still mesmerized by the magical websites you saw in his portfolio, you reach for your checkbook.

Nooo!(Insert “bullet time” affect here) Then picture us flying in through the Starbucks window, at blazing secret agent speed, a sheet of paper in hand (cue action music), as we deftly exchange your checkbook for our General Service-Provider Interview Worksheet. Instead of writing over a substantial sum of money, you say, “This all sounds great, Jack. I have a Due Diligence Process for my business to make sure I only work with people who are a good fit. Would you mind answering a few questions?”

Imagine the power you wield as a business owner when you can say with certainty that the people you make agreements with are worth your business’ time and money. Implement a Due Diligence Process for your business.
