You need to investigate which type of service you want to start or expand into. Consider type of work that is done and who your customers are.
Make this a fun exercise and really do some daydreaming about how you see yourself enjoying this type of work. Too many people jump in and realize later on that they're not happy or even hate work!
Each type of service is relatively easy to get into with little or no cost (exceptions being carpet cleaning and janitorial). Examine your funds and determine how much you're willing to invest in yourself and your new venture.
This should be an enjoyable project for you and one that is very important to your future success. Be very creative and fantasize about how great or small you want your business to be. Record what thoughts come to mind as you go thru this process. Any concerns or negative thoughts? If you only get positive responses to your visualizations then take it to next level and see what comes up.
To start any successful business, you need to be able to see yourself in job and visualize exactly kind of life you will build with it.
Imagine steps you will need to go through to be in kind of business you vision. How will you get through each step? Can you start part-time and increase amount of time you spend in your business as you grow your customer base? How long do you think this will take?
If you're comfortable with your visulaized business, you'll need to start making plans and setting goals for yourself to make it a reality.
The more you visualize and more you document, better chance you have of your dream becoming a success.
