3. A Proper Plan - Planning is the most important part of the process. Determine what you will need to do for every season (fall, winter, spring).
Then, properly plan. The warm weather months are the most active time for a beekeeper. If you are still not at spring, then start planning for it now. Make sure that you have everything that you need to ensure that you can start beekeeping in the spring.
4. Educate yourself - Get beekeeping guides and read as much as you can on beekeeping so once you start you are ready.
