Business Opportunities

Every day people invest in business opportunities. Whether this investment is a dream come true or a nightmare will depend a great deal on pre-purchase homework.

A business opportunity can include vending machines, distributorships, franchises, multi-level marketing arrangements and others.

Before you go out and invest your hard-earned money, investigate. Consider what type of business suits your experience, the amount of money you have to invest, your interests, and your skills.

Verify Opportunity is Registered

To check to see if a business opportunity is registered or if any complaints have been filed against it, contact the Washington Department of Financial Institutions at 1-877-RING DFI (1-877-746-4334).
