I guess your definition of Wholesale may help us point you in the right direction.
I am a licensed agent who exclusively does wholesales to investors. What I will say is there are a lot of benefits to having a license but a lot of expenditures as well. The classes, fees, applications, tests, MLS access, etc. all add up and your first deal may well be eaten alive by all that time and money expenditure.
The flip side of that is that MLS access has given me a new source for deals that has made me a great deal more money than it has cost me. Being an agent has also gives me legitimacy, access to tax benefits and several other factors that are good for consideration.
The short answer would be no, worry about doing your first deal first and then move on to spending money to make more money. The Long answer would be complicated and would require a great deal more info on your area, your tax burdens, liability, corporate structure, etc.
if your wholesaling with a re license, you have to disclose that your an agent, and as a Utah agent your required to use the Utah repc. Now the repc is not assignable. If your wholesaling as an agent id recommend you talk with a real estate attorney for the proper disclosures to use.
