I congratulate you on your decision of investing your free time in earning. You must check out this link to get started with ETSY selling :

I had an account and used to sell Indian wholesale kurtis (https://www.lkfabkart.com/women/ethnic-wear/kurtis.html) on etsy but due to my lack of continuity, I cancelled the account.

Whether you need a business license will depend on your state / city so you should check with your local city council. You will need to obtain a sellers permit from the state as you will be responsible for the sales tax which will be collected on applicable orders. To actually start the shop just go to the etsy website and click on the sell on etsy link then follow the instructions. You mentioned you had t-shirt designs you have made, by that do you mean you have designed them or have gone out and actually had them printed on t-shirts ready to sell? If it is the first you may want to look into different platforms than etsy, there are several websites you can submit designs to that print and ship for you and you dont need to worry about sales tax with these as they handle everything and pay you commission on every sale.
Hope that helps!

I think you should try Magento. It's popular than Etsy and easy to use.
If you aren't procrastinate, it's okay to work from home. Anw, you should ask your friend about your idea. You can never walk alone!

You can start you own e commerce website easily to sell t-shirt. I would suggest you can go for magneto website , by the way word press in not bad . With e-commerce plugin you can publish your products. You not need to license just register your store, if you grow as compare to competitor there is chance of getting funding .. I came across a website webbywebb (https://webbywebb.com/) this is really a great website that provide tech news and earn through affiliate

There are many free web site packages online. This looks to be reasonably easy to you and may be of use https://www.wix.com/ecommerce/website And I don't have any connections to them.
But give it a go. I started at home back in 1979 and now have a 'bricks and mortar' display area as well as a https://www.leisurebuildings.com web site which I write myself. And enjoy as I love the coding aspect of it but you don't need to do that. Good luck.

Starting a business is always an exciting moment for everyone. I remember how important it was to me!

Starting a business is an exciting moment for every businessman. It is not easy, because you need to know and be able to do a lot to make your business successful. There are many factors that affect the success of your business. We live in an age of development and technology, so everyone should move, not stand still. I think it is appropriate to start working with international partners from the beginning. I understand that finances do not always allow you to hire employees to do this, but you can use a translator to get started. For example, https://adgloriam-translations.com/ translated my documents for my business when I was a beginner in my deal.

You can think about sports betting, forex or some other alternative.

As for me, I prefer to work in the Internet. I don't have too much savings but I really like using https://777score.co.uk which is a good way to make some money and also to entertain yourself.

Remember when I started my business its was one room in flat my clients came to me and I made them new haircuts and hairdressers. Now I have a beautiful salon you can see more here (https://lovehairstyles.com/black-men-haircuts/). It was my dream. If you have a dream you have a result.

Hello! There are many variants of different investments, I think you should start with something where you have good experience. For example I work with sport betting, I'm an expert in football. My income is quite big from this business. If you interested and want to try I can share my favorite sport betting site, here is a link https://probettingz.com/ Good luck!
