should i start my own business?

i have been thinking of starting my own business for a few years. i am basically not happy in any job i get and i have always believed that i would be happier if i had my own business. i am not planning on anything large. i was thinking of starting either a gardening / lawn mowing business or possibly some other type of service i can offer people suck as painting etc. would starting this type of business be a bad idea? how do i get started? thank you!
