Starting a business...advice please

Hi all,

I’m thinking going into business for myself, offering web design, branding, photography…

So darn scary. I just don’t know where to begin. I recently lost my job and my old boss has kindly agreed to help me set up if I want to. Its either that or I go find a job.

Does anyone have any advice for me? What are the pitfalls? What did you under estimate or not figure on? I wanna know everything to help me make up my mind.

OMG help me PLEASE!!
