I'm a newbie to this world and I plan on wholesaling. I've got a list ready to go, plus I'm driving for dollars. But, even with all the podcasts, forums and blogs, I still really don't know what I'm doing. Has anyone used a seasoned partner to work with on the first few deals? (Like give them 60% of the deal just for helping me learn the ropes)? Has anyone done this? Where would I find such a person? It seems that I am always working when our local REI meetings take place, although I'm shooting for making the October meeting.

Any advice on this?
