Here is an easy, five-step process for starting your own small business. You will find that these steps apply to most business startups. 

  1. Secure the necessary items: For almost any startup business, you will need (at the very least) full access to a computer with a reliable internet connection, and a mobile phone.
  2. Open the necessary accounts: Open a business checking account if you don't already have one. Also open a PayPal account (or similar online payment option), and be sure to have a valid email address. 
  3. Plan Your Business: Decide what type of business you would like to start. Follow your passion! Dream a little. And do a LOT of online research. See the links below for a hotlist of Small Business Ideas. What will be the initial cost of your business? How will your business make money? The more specifically you can answer these questions, the better your business will be. 
  4. Build Your Website: Every serious business has a website, and it really pays to build your own. Paying someone else to do it keeps you out of the loop, and hurts your bottom line. You can learn how to build your site on Wordpress, or you can get an all-inclusive website building package, with full instructions included, from companies such as SiteBuildIt (SBI). 
  5. Proactively Seek Clients: You have to work full time at your business, whether or not you are making any money at the moment. Remember, you are always either working or looking for work. For example, if you are a stay-at-home writer, your small business ideas might include scanning job listing websites every day for writing jobs you can do from home, and applying for all jobs that seem appropriate. 

That's all there is to starting your own business, in general.

Depending on your particular business, other things may also be required, such as licensing, skilled workers, or inventory, for instance. 

Overall, there's really Nothing To It But To Do It.
