SOP Re-potting Advice!

#StringOfPearls Just got home with this girl. She looks wonderful right now but I know it won’t last for long in her current situation. Some store (not name dropping but it starts with a W πŸ˜’) decided to put this beauty in a plastic pot with a super dense peat mix. It has absolutely zero drainage!! It’s ridiculous how much stagnant water is in this soil mix, so I’m going to repot with a homemade, well draining succulent mix! Can anyone please share their process of repotting a SOP without disturbing the way it looks? Any steps would be greatly appreciated!! Thank y’all!
6” pot with drainage

I have a string of pearls ready to repot and found this video helpful. (I haven’t done it yet, but this makes me confident.) Good luck! https://youtu.be/jDo44bo4w9Q?feature=shared.
When repotting mine i twisted the roots A LOT because the soil they had it in was not well draining, i noticed to use a little less sphagnum moss as it holds a lot of moisture but twisting shouldn’t disturb the look it has now :)
I got mine today , ordered online . It’s very few pearls with dry crunching branches . Don’t know if it will thrive . Any suggestions please
@BreezyCowshorn ohh I gotcha. Do you have a picture of it in its current condition?
