Hello @TeachtheSpectrum ,
We're glad to hear you're getting started with the website builder. As far getting started goes, my main point of advice would be to have a general map of what you want your website to look like. Have an idea of what tabs you want (e.g. Home, About, Contact Us, Store, etc.). Once you have this basic setup in mind, you'll want to start planning the design elements of your site - your colors, alignments, number of pictures, links elsewhere and unlisted pages, and so on. Our website builder will typically guide you through these first few steps when you're just beginning, providing a standard layout and giving you a chance to select your themes.
For more information on the website builder, and basic guidelines and instructions on various components of the builder, I'd recommend checking out their Knowledge Base.
