i want to open a security company operating in oregon/washington states. i want a legitimate company, with discipline, professionalism and respect. I want it to be an opposite of the "traditional guards". I went to college and graduated with a criminal justice degree, also have about 3-5 months total experience in security, might not seem a lot but i am just tired of being treated like a "guard" and like you're a nobody. I also have training in defensive tactics, baton, handcuffing, self defense, and my DPSST. My first customer would be my church, thats were i want to start off with.
the problem is, i have no idea were to start, can i make it as a charity business and then later on make it as a LLC?
and i couldn't find anything on opening a new business in oregon state, so if your from oregon please help!
also, if i reside in oregon, can i open a business in washington state?
thanks for all the answers.
