How do I start an IT company?

I'm looking to start an IT company. Has anyone opened a similar business and can share their advice? What are key considerations, pitfalls to avoid, etc?

Before I could really weigh in on this topic I would need to know more information to really be able to help.

For example:

  • Why specific types of IT service will you be providing?
  • Are you aimed at small business in general or focusing on an industry (health care, financial, retail, etc.)?
  • How are you positioning yourself (trusted partner, security experts, general IT needs)?
