I'm thinking of going into business for myself and need practical experience-based advice.

I'm starting a small (one part-time employee) interior design/organizational service firm.
I think I have a good plan on getting started initially, but I'm interested to hear how folks' expectations of their small businesses were met, things that they hadn't thought of, and suggestions for avoiding pitfalls.
I'd also appreciate any insight into things like business licenses, tax ID numbers, contractor licensing, health insurance, etc.
