Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) March 29, 2013
Susan Baroncini-Moe, author of "Business in Blue Jeans: How to Have a Successful Business on Your Own Terms, in Your Own Style" commented today on the propensity of scammers and con artists to come out of the woodwork, even as the economy recovers, saying that entrepreneurs and business owners today are more likely to get taken advantage of during economic down times, especially with the ongoing sequester.
With the economy still struggling to rebound from the recession and the continuing sequester and rumors of potential upcoming economic crises looming, more and more people are looking for ways to make extra income or compensate for being laid off.
“The economy is improving, but not fast enough to meet the needs of a lot of people,” said Baroncini-Moe from her home office in Indianapolis, Indiana, “but that doesn’t mean you don’t have to be careful. You have to research anyone offering a business opportunity or business help."
“When you’re desperate to create income and cash flow and when you have fears about the economy, that’s when you’re the most vulnerable to scam artists and gurus who don’t have your best interests at heart,” said Baroncini-Moe, a business and marketing strategist for business owners and consultant for large corporations, “Plus, when you’re feeling that stress and you’re afraid, you’re at the most risk for making bad decisions, so that’s when you should take more time. So if you feel pressured to decide too quickly or the offer seems “too good to be true,” run the other way.”
