By Kim Radok, May 2018

My perspective on the “how and why” recessions occur, the preceding indicators and suggested action to survive them. The purpose of this article is to share experience, knowledge and insight for the many business professionals that have either forgotten the pain of the previous recessions, not experienced one in their working life and/or believe the “modern world is recession proof”.

You're easy prey to a stylish fraudster.

You're easy prey to a cute fraudster.
