Business owners and entrepreneurs are risk takers and sometimes, an opportunity may seem fantastic, but it’s really not. How do you not get “taken”?

Do your Due Diligence:

Listen to this podcast with Justin and Tonya Dawn Recla of Avent-Guard Due Diligence and Vetting Solutions.

  1. How did the opportunity come to you? Who’s the source? Is it legit?
  2. Is it truly an opportunity?
  3. Ask the questions to determine that it’s legitimate.
  4. Verify the information.
  5. Make the decision to get involved.


Think about how many business, vendors, service providers you hire. You are responsible for checking out people and companies before you hire them. Do you due diligence and don’t get “taken”.

Check out Greater Phoenix SCORE’s upcoming classeswhere Justin and Tonya Dawn Recla will be explaining how exactly to do this.
