Much of what you are describing falls outside the scope of project management, however project management can still be used as a tool set to help you arrive at your objectives.
I would first suggest you create a business plan. While this is outside the scope of the PM role, the same people often perform multiple roles and the business plan provides the justification for initiating projects. There are many elements to a business plan and you could use PM techniques to define the steps you need to develop one, priorities, schedule, etc. to keep you on track.
Once you have a business plan, you can define the work necessary to execute the plan. In this phase, you will have specific deliverables like your client communication plan using Whatsapp or your process of choice. Much of the detailed work itself is again outside the PM scope. The PMBoK describes the process for managing the deliverable development, not how to create the deliverables themselves.
I would suggest a high level schedule because you will probably want some kind of phased approach and some idea when you'll be done. Priorities may include tackling some easy stuff first to start making progress, and there are likely some high priority items like a risk management plan, because anything to do with kids invites a much higher likelihood of legal issues.
I would not try to put together a detailed predictive schedule however. In your case, tackling one problem at a time in a more agile fashion is probably your better option. Things will certainly change as your vision gets more detail, and you can start making improvements, defining processes like client acquisition, etc. before you’ve figured out what you need to change next. Again, how you create those deliverables is outside the PM role, but how you manage their development and execution is a PM function.
I hope that helps somewhat.
Your offering may be unique but you will be delivering it over and over again, as long as the demand works in your favour. You should manage it as a business, not a project.
As Keith mentioned, project management is simply a tailored version of general management. The main difference is that you simply cycle through the management groups over and over again. The management areas are pretty much the same.
Any resources you would recommend for making a business plan?
Ill check out the pembok for deliverables.
I also spoke with some people I find at java ui classes, tutoring places, they are all interested but I would have to write everything out, including need cars that run like lyft/uber for kids
You should be able to find a variety of business plan template online. You will want to search for something that works for your type of business and your need. For example, if you plan to use it to get money from a bank, they will be expecting specific areas to be covered in your business plan: market analysis, cash flow projections, risk analysis and so on.
