Next, make a business plan. There are many programs that will help you walk through the steps of creating a business plan. By going through these steps, you have a chance to think through the details of how your business will be organized. For example, will it be a sole-proprietorship, partnership, LLC, or corporation? Additionally, a business plan will help you consider how you'll finance your company and manage operations.
The next step is to create a team. Regardless of if you're the only employee or if you'll hire some help, you'll need professionals to help you get your business off the ground. If you need help with legal forms, find a good attorney to help you get started. If you have no accounting experience, find a bookkeeper to help organize your books. Be honest about areas where you need help and find qualified people to help you in those aspects.
Now it's time to work through the details. After testing your idea, creating a business plan, getting a business license and organizing a team, you'll know what other details need to be handled before you start. This might include finding a work or commercial space, creating marketing materials, such as a logo and business cards, and, if necessary, acquiring products to sell.

Expanding on John's answer above and more directly to the question of 'licensing', the answer is it depends on the type of business and where, which state or country, it is located.
For example, doctors and lawyers are licensed and so are banks, but bankers are not.
So, you have to check with the state or country where you would like to start your business and see if you need to obtain a license or if you can simply open your doors after following John's sound advice above.
