If you're looking for tips and how tos on creating any business, starting from ground zero, then this article has some good tips for you.
The first question of course is, what stops someone from starting a business from ground zero?
Obstacle #1: The first thing is fear of making mistakes. That's something we can all probably identify with at one time or another.
I know there are situations I've been afraid or concerned about making mistakes. I think most often we're afraid of doing something new, where we think we may be embarrased or feel disappointed with the results we get, and so forth.
So that has to be obstacle #1.
Obstacle #2: is just getting started. Anytime you start something new or try a new thing the law of inertia applies. "An object at rest tends to stay at rest. An object in motion tends to stay in motion."
So the obstacle is, if you're not started, how do you get the momenum to get started?
The good news is, once you get started you tend to keep things going because of the laws of momentum. The solution to getting started is to jump start the process. It really helps if you have someone else giving you some energy or motivation, or impetus to get the ball rolling.
That would be the second obstacle.
Obstacle #3: The third obstacle from building your business from the ground up would be the lack of specialized knowledge.
A person can take 500 pages, throw them in a dryer, turn it on and theoritically in some point in time you might come out with all the pages stacked in order in the form of a book but trial and error can be a really frustrating process.
A lot of people feel frustrated because they're taking their plans, their how to's, throwing them in a dryer, turning it on and hoping they end up with a book.
The thing is, there's a process, a preocedure, a system to put a book together. You follow step 1, you follow step 2, you follow step 3 and at the end of the checklist, you have a book. So to put the book together you need a checklist, system and a process. That's the same as putting together income streams, a business, coming up with new ways or ideas to market or promote. You need a system and a checklist.
And the lack of a system or checklist would definitely be obstacle #3.
To turn these into a positive, to answer this question then in the positive of, what do I need step by step to create a business or income stream from ground zero the first thing would be to get someone to show you the way so that the fear of making mistakes is not as big a problem. If a person has someone experience showing them how to take the different steps, it takes away an awful lot of the fear.
Maybe not all of it, but probably the vast majority of it.
The second key is to get some momentum and the way you get momentum is to get started. And the secret of getting started is to have someone else provide some impetus or energy.
The third key to get the specialized knowledge and how to's, the step by step lessons, checklists or procedures to make the thing happen. Whatever the cost to acquire the specialized knowledge or to get an experienced person to assist you typically pays off because a person can waste a lot of money, and I do mean a LOT of money trying to reinvent the wheel.
You know, without any plans, just trying this method, hearing about the hottest new whatever, giving it a whirl, buying this, putting your foot in this water, putting your foot in that water but never really getting anything going. A person can waste a lot of money doing that. They could blow $500, $1000, $2000 or more and not have jack to show for it.

A lot of people don't know this but I built "Higher Response Marketing, Inc." pretty much from the ground up. In the very early days I was running free and cheap clsssifed ads on Compuserve and AOL, practicing writing emails and ads, etc.
Later, when the WWW came along, (in case you didn't know, there wasn't always the "world wide web") I didnt invest a lot of money. I didn't start out with a big server or staff, none of that. What I did though was I got 1 product created then started selling it, then created another product, then created another product and started selling it and so on.
Somewhere along the way I found success. If you take the time to find out what people want, then create the products, then put together promotions, get your website up and running and so forth, sooner or later success will find you. I'm a living example and proof that you can start from the ground up. I've been there and done it so I know that it can be done.
