    Is there any point starting a small business in a field of interest if zero revenue is expected for one year or more ?

    From my reading so far, I gather that not much of the business expenses can be deducted for taxes.

    For example :

    Mileage (I expect about 2000 miles per year ) : $1000
    Home Office ($5 x 300 square feet) : $1500
    New Phone Purchase ($600 for business/personal) $300

    Total $2800

    Is this annual expense amount ($2800) worth taking the risk and capital investment (around $1000 startup cost) of owning a small business and the formalities that are needed to satisfy the state and federal authorities ?

    Many business start up not expecting to see a positive return until year 5. If your business plan is robust and the cost projections show a profit at some point in the future then yes it is worth investing.
