Be prepared to open a bank account , all monies coming in & going out should be processed through that account

See an attorney to get an LLC or whatever else might fit your business. Know it takes a good year or more for the business to become a money maker and successful. We own three.

My advise as a mom who work from home is go for it. Do not be scared, be smart but not scared, believe in your idea and talent.
