How Business Happens

Now that the beginning of the new year has come and gone, I have had a flurry of calls about starting a business in Spokane, surrounding areas and/or Washington State, many with the same questions: Do I need a business license? How do I set up an LLC? How do I get a trade name? I thought it would be helpful to run through a few of the state, city and federal registration requirements for business owners to be aware of before they open. I’ve run into this situation before so you need to warm up to them. Small talk and being genuinely interested will help. Do not pretend to like them or put on an accent because they will know. I’ve seen people do this and it’s embarrassing and rude, to say the least.

I know times are tough (I have been out of work for 4 years now) but this should be a time to pull together for our students. Thank you for your information.
