That's great! If you want to start an online company, I always suggest the best way to start is by creating a business plan. There are lots of free resources online but you can also check with your local library to see if they have access to resources as well. Although it is at a cost, I suggest trying https://www.bizplan.com/ software. It helps you build a comprehensive business plan online.

Next, you should be sure you fully document your costs and how you will make money. This will enable you to see how much money you need to start, and if you can be profitable.

Lastly, I would highly recommend building your store using a template on Shopify's basic plan https://www.shopify.com/pricing. Shopify allows you to create a professional looking site and has everything you need built in to manage inventory, take payments, run promotions, and print shipping labels.
