    Grace, no matter what type of business you want to start...unless you are planning something as simple as walking the neighbor's dog every day...you need a business plan.

    So go to the library and get a college level book on business and read it ...the business plan section will be toward the back.  Read it and use the information there to make your own business plan for every type of business you want to think about.

    You can go to Fiverr and get a couple of basic -pre made business plans for comparison, but you are actually best off if you call a CPA firm...and pay them to sit down with you, analyze your business goals and then make the plan.

    The information you need to start a business is called a BUSINESS PLAN.

    That's a very vague question. You could try reading the course catalog for a business school if you want an extensive list of the topics that successful businesses need to know.
