Don't quit your day job! When you have a large net worth, don't quit your day job!
Everyone wants to get into RE because they want out of something else, be it a job they hate or they want to be their own boss or they want to make a lot of money etc.
The gestation period of RE is quite long 3-12 months so if you are counting on income take this into consideration. Also watch your expenses...if something stops working do keep doing it.
Figure out the sector that you want to work in and specialize (become the expert).
Start with your Buyer's List...don't look at a property until you have 20 buyers and you know what they want (50-100 is much better).
Time block. Find 1-2+ hours a day and do nothing but your "A" RE activities during that time.
Don't get caught up in setting up shop. You will do most of your business over the phone and by email(what do you need to set up but an answering service and a hosted email account).
Hosted email: this is my pet peeve...I have Gmail accounts but those are personal accounts. You should have a hosted email account First.Last@abccompany.com You are a professional this is your pro identity. You don't have to have a web page to begin with...just pick a professional short name and go with it.
Let me know if this is helpful? Good luck, Brad
