Welcome to BP and TX Boyde.  No better place to be right now in my opinion.  This site is addictive and very informative.  Lots of great people to get advice from.  Good luck to you!

Welcome @Boyde Greenaway  ! 
A few tips on navigating the site you can view specific forum categories by hovering over the "Forums" at the top menu bar and selecting "All Forums" 
Since you wanted to know some more information on wholesaling here is the link to that category Wholesaling

You could also set up keyword alerts in your settings and it will notify you anytime someone is discussing your specific keywords. Such as "Wholesaling",  "Katy"  & "Texas" 

Hope that helped! :D

Welcome fellow Bigger Pockets member! This is a great forum and I am sure it will help you learn many facets of the real estate investment world. I purchased my first investment property over 40 years ago and only wish that I had a resource like BP community when I got started! So you are in a good company.

Some say that your net-worth equals your network, and this is the place to make right connections. You should also find investors locally and network with them face-to-face. Find people close to you using MEET feature. Also, look for investor meetings on Meetup.

All the best!
