To become a successful land developer, you might start by building in other developers’ projects for a decade or so. You would learn first hand what works well and what doesn’t; which "improvements" add value and which only add more cost. You would become aware of the mistakes that can create hidden costs or limit the usefulness of the land.
Then you might begin developing projects of your own, working on smaller deals and on properties you are willing to hold for your own account. You could begin building a staff that understands your goals and methods by working personally with each person on every project for years. You could develop a design team and a finance team the same way, one step at a time.
You might travel all over the country, taking pictures, talking with developers and builders, seeing what works, looking for good new ideas. You would spend endless hours in your own community, looking at possibilities, talking with property owners, builders, lenders and brokers to find the most solid projects, the best uses, the right time.
If you did all this really well for a long time you would build a reputation for vision and skill and integrity that would have people coming to you for your involvement or your advice on the best projects in the community.
