Yes. Just filing federal schedule C makes you a business.

well see that is the thing, i didn't file a schdule c, i was just doing this as a side hustle. i dont know if that is what you do while filing your taxes because i didnt get any 1099 but i used my tax summary instead.

If you did not report it as business income (and pay your self employment tax) you are not eligible for either the Ohio Small Business deduction (SBD) or the new (new in 2018) federal Section 199A deduction (20%)

 "Self-employment" in the  federal is reported on Schedule C or C-EZ and then to line 12 (schedule 1) of form 1040.
So, when asked, in the Ohio interview, for your business income, use the line 12 amount. It's a full 100% deduction.
