hi Maddykins6 (cute avatar). I work with entrepreneurs all the time, so feel suited to answer the question. However, I don’t own my own business. Still, the first step in becoming an entrepreneur is really about having a “purposeful” idea and documenting it. Why do I say document it (or write it down)? Because it becomes more real when it’s written down. It becomes a goal or vision. I cannot say its the BEST step, but one of the first steps for sure. Another good first step is testing it. Don’t spend a lot of money or a lot of time trying to make a perfect mousetrap. Try to test your idea to see if it is marketable. So those are a couple of things I would first do, when starting a business.
