How to start a graphic design business?

Step 1: Learn graphic design
Step 2: Get people to pay you to do it.

That's really the short version of it. The hard part is step 2. If you know how to do the work, you need to get out and market yourself to local businesses. Your best bet will be to find some very small businesses, and offer to design logos and the like for them. Charge them a minimal fee, with the understanding that you get to keep copies of their logos for your portfolio.

Consider This

As you progress along, you'll find larger and larger businesses to work for. It's also worth a short consultation with a CPA before you start, to ensure you have all your ducks in a row when it comes time to file taxes next year.
