Design business  
Ok, please don't laugh, but I have had this dream of starting my own Web Design business. I don't have much actual experience, but I have taken a TON of classes on HTML, CSS, and Web Design. I feel I am ready to start, but I don't know how or where. I have my own domain, etc, but I don't know what to do with it.
Is there anyone who can tell me / show me what I need to do from here?

Thanks SO much!

i'd suggest that you start off with some freelance work. let people know you're looking to do this as a profession and see if anyone you know needs a site designed. charge a flat rate (like $10 an hour, and raise it to $15 for difficult work). after you have about 5 under your belt create a "portfolio" on your own site. (i.e. use small screen shots and links to the sites you've created.) then use that portfolio site to drum up more business and lead you into something bigger. just a thought ;)
