After all, what does one person having problems that he isn;t even aware of popping up mean in the grand scheme of things.
Really somebody who is just getting into a business ought to be the "best read" persons out there. Reading is not doing, but you ought to do considerable research before actually going into a business. This has always been an unscrupulous business filled with people you can never trust, but that is true of almost every other industry. I am not endorsing it, I am just accepting the reality of it. There are many many thousands of carrier cows out there by now and in the commercial world they are probably still multiplying and buyers need to know that and understand that. This is something that can be managed; but you need to be aware of it.
