I’ll say it again: Before you hire advisors or make offers
to purchase businesses, check out the reputation and the statements
made by the so-called experts and
the owners and key employees of SMBs.
On LinkedIn, for example, don’t limit yourself
to their posts; examine all their activity
(you can see their comments to posts from other people).
“Oh,” you say, “there isn’t much to find on social media about people”?
Consider running; not walking away.
(IMHO) for people (and companies) NOT visible
with useful information on social media,
and from Google searches, you might
wonder how much they actually know about
what they say they know. Or you might wonder
about their (hidden?) agenda for what they want you to do.
