MYB Inc.

Discover our dedication to uncompromised accuracy.

MYB Inc. is a company of principles, intent on finding the same in your employees.

CEO/Founder Karen Caruso started Mind Your Business from her own basement. Her intent initially was to start a childcare background screening business for families looking to hire safe and reliable childcare. Finding it near impossible to find a company that offered such employee screening services to private individuals, she started her own. MYB Inc. now stands as a testament to what a big vision, diligent, careful processes, and the passionate pursuit of reliable pre-screening can accomplish.

An employment screening service that understands everything is on the line.

Now, that same powerful force in nature a mother demonstrates when she seeks to protect her young is applied as a consummate standard of customer service to all Mind Your Business clients. Though nanny screening is still offered, the services now are vastly expanded, and the size of clients Mind Your Business serves are some of the largest enterprises around.


From SF-86 cleared researchers for government-backed positions to thousands of satellite locations of individual drug testing, there isn’t an angle, effort or innovation we haven’t considered on your behalf.
