What is the first step to creating a business to sell a homemade product?

I also need information about the necessary licenses I might need.

The first thing you need to do is obtain a license if your product needs one. Second, you have to have enough product to distribute. Most importantly, you have to advertise your homemade product.

The Small Business Administration, provided you are in the United States, is a great resource provided by the Federal Government. They have local branches in many states.

Although a lot of people don't like to do them, a Business Plan is a very good place to start. This will make you work through the steps and your plans to see if you should proceed. Your State Website will have a listing of required licenses for different product.
