First of all, you should understand that you can't just get a patent on everything, and I'm not sure if "the way I do business" is a thing that can be patented. You must give more information.
The best way to start is to Google it... you can learn about what is a patent, in Wikippedia or from other sites.
Look also at the EFF(Electronic Frontier Foundation) website.
Don't forget that answers here on Clarity are not legal
advise and at the end of the day you will probably have to go to a lawyer to consult..
