You need a business plan.

It can be in your head (many successful businesses were started with a non-written business plan), but I prefer it on paper. There are many resources on the Internet for writing a business plan. I like the ones at the Small Business Administration's website, sbs.gov (a great source for funding as well, which we'll talk about in Step Three).
