    I am starting up my own business and I would really like (and pretty much need) a website. I signed up on storeenvy and I just don't get it all. Not sure if i'm just being a little clueless but I would LOVE LOVE LOVE if someone walked me through it or did it for me.

    also in your opinion which is better between store envy and bigcartel? I know its probably best to just make sure own from scratch but i don't have the funds for that

    You'll need to learn html, css, php, and javascript to make a professorial website. If you want to make a simple static website then html and css is all you need. php and javascript is kinda hard (i'm still learning it) but html and css is so easy a 10yr old can code it. Go on youtube and type in "how to make a website from scratch" and the first video is gonna be like 30min long and a little out dated (don't worry html hasn't changed much) but it's very helpful.

    Why not wordpress? Your advice is to make him learn all those languages when he just needs a site for his business, not becoming a web developer.

    Yes but if you want full freedom then it's best to make your own website. With wordpress their is only so much you can do.

    Make the website with wordpress, you don't need to know anything about web design or html/css/javascript.

    If he starts learning all those when will he have time to manage his business. I'm sure knowing and learning all those is very usefull but it takes time, so his best option is using a CMS: Wordpress or Joomla or hire someone to code for him. Learning to code is so far down the list.

    Like others have said, you can make a great site with Wordpress yourself for free. You will of course need to pay for a domain and hosting, but that's pretty cheap. You can get awesome professional looking paid themes in the download section here for free. Themeforest and Studiopress themes are fantastic and can be downloaded here.

    YouTube has tons of walkthroughs to set up your wordpress site and to customize it. You can also find a lot of tutorials here, just do a search. There are many large reputable companies that use wordpress, just do a google search for some examples. If you want to keep costs down and be in control of your website, Wordpress is the way to go. It's not hard to learn either, especially with all of the tutorials available.
