Hi, Most succulents are very easy to propagate. Simply break off a piece of the plant and let it sit for a while to create a callus or seal over the broken end. Then, stick the cutting in a sandy potting mix and keep just slightly moist. It should root with no problems. Now, not all succulents work this way. Plants such as agaves and hens and chicks grow from offsets or babies that sprout around their base. They can be severed from the mother plant and started invidually.
