How to start a business is the most asked question all around the world but it is not that hard but also not that easy
1. Find a business idea
Finding small business ideas is a task you can approach systematically by relying on time-tested approaches that have worked for other entrepreneurs. No matter whether you're looking to start a low-investment business on the side or you'd prefer to go all-in on your idea, the best way to find a product to sell starts with asking questions:

B. Is it a trend, fad, or growing market?
The trajectory of a market matters more than its current state. If you want your business to go the distance, remember it's not only critical to understand the demand for a category today but to know how it might trend in the future. Does your product or niche fall into a fad, trend, stable, or growing market?

  • Fad. A fad is something that grows in popularity for a brief period of time and fades out just as quickly. A fad can be lucrative if your entry into the market and exit are timed perfectly, but this can be difficult to predict and a recipe for disaster.
  • Trend. A trend is a longer-term direction that the market for a product appears to be taking. It doesn't grow as quickly as a fad, it lasts longer and, generally, it doesn't decline nearly as fast.
  • Stable. A stable market is one that is immune to shocks and bumps. It is neither declining nor growing but maintains itself over long periods of time.
  • Growing. A growing market is one that has seen consistent growth and shows signs of a long-term or permanent market shift.
2. Choose a business name
What's in a name? For starters, your business name is a universal facet of your marketing; it shows up everywhere you do. Word of mouth is hard enough to earn, so there's no reason to make life harder with a dull, confusing, or irrelevant business name.

That said, the early days of starting a business are fluid, with very little being set in stone. Whatever name you come up with now isn't the one you have to live with forever. Keep things simple and focused: find a name for your business that makes it clear what you do, that’s short and memorable, and that aligns with your mission and vision statement. This isn’t an effortless task, but it’s very achievable with a bit of ingenuity.

3. Validate your product idea
Until people pay you, all you have is a list of assumptions. Market research, surveys, and feedback from friends and family can point you in the right direction, but the calling card of real product validation is the sound of the cash register ringing. So, the first and arguably best way to validate your product is to make a few initial sales.

There are, however, a number of ways to validate your would-be idea as you're developing it. Most focus on a single essential action: commitment. Let early customers commit in some form or fashion to show that, yes, people really are interested in buying this product and they aren't just telling you what you want to hear.

4. Write your business plan
Writing a business plan helps formalize your idea and can streamline the business-creation process by getting you to sit down and think things through methodically. but it should be very easy to understand to nonindustry people.

5. Get your finances in order
finance is a very important part of any business if you are doing it through funding or through bootstrapping nad this is how you start business

Note: Yes you are right but for me, it is very important to create a creative logo design for your brands it is very useful for marketing as well..
 
The question is very broad so I'll try to give some answers to help you narrow your choices down.

1. What are you interested in?
For a business to stay active and functional it needs the effort from the founder and effort is only present when you are interested. Find a business model that will fit your current interests. You like computers? Try being a reseller for parts or used units. Like food? Maybe try starting a small online delivery service for your own simple recipes.

2. Know your limits.
Starting a business depends on the resources you have available. Your capital, materials, business model and so on and so forth. What do you have right now and how much of it can you use?

3. Learn skills and gather information.
If you want to start a business you need to do a lot of research. Understand the people you are planning on doing business with. What they like and what they don't like. Learn more about the business model you have in mind. Your product, budget and marketing schemes. There are a lot of them out there. Try to find the ones that will be best suited for you.

Good luck!.
