What is the first thing you need to do when starting a small business?
you won't get any advice of off future competitors, however you can always contact them pretending to be a potential customer to get an idea of their prices and how they operate!

First thing you need is a business plan. What will you sell? How will you sell it? Where is your market? How much will you charge? Will the price cover all your expenses? What are your expenses? Things like that. Never ask your competitors for advice. That's like asking a guy for tips on how to date his girlfriend. Rather ask people in similar lines of work. You want to sell shoes, ask someone who sells hats or other apparel. You know the basic questions. How do you know if your ideas work? I don't know, in my experience you never know for sure until you try. But ask a few friends that are interested in your products what they think. They'll give you some idea of the feasibility.
