Perhaps reading an introductory book such as "The Complete Guide to Building a Successful Trading Business" by Paul King might be a good place to start.

Sorry can't post a link to Amazon as my post count is too low

Are you asking how to incorporate the operation you already have as a trader/investor or are you asking how to go about developing the business model to actually begin the process of operations?
