Vague question, so the equally vague answer would be, have a good plan and a lot of money.

I always say, the only way to make a small fortune with your hobby, is to start with a large fortune

You need to provide lots of information if you ask a question like that. Even then the answers are probably going to vague.

You need to provide data on yourself. On what kind of business you want to start?. Do you want to start one or buy one? The questions go on and on.

Find something that you can make cheaply and sell expensively. Then make lots of them and sell lots of them.

Your best bet is dealing with your local public officials. Many communities have some sort of small business administration that helps people like you work through the many steps needed to successfully start and run a business. Look through the yellow pages and do Google searches. In addition, many local county Extension offices can give guidance with small business.

Course that advice is only good if the business you want to start is as a law firm.


See my point?

For a more direct answer, we need to know what you are wanting to do, what is your experience, etc, etc
