If you want to do anything in life, it will make your life so much easier if you can learn from people who have successfully done whatever it is that you want to do. If possible, directly from the source. If that is out of question, there should be tons of information or even interviews noting the how-tos readily available be it online or offline. What you need to do is to find them and absorb the content. After which, implement them as soon as you have the chance. Waiting for all the stars to align is essentially robbing you from the lessons that you would have garnered if you were to start when you can.
