Welcome to the market! I tell everyone looking to get started to go to some meetups (when COVID starts to cool off and they come back in larger amounts) and find an investor doing what you want to do. Offer to help them with their business for free with whatever they need and then learn the business that way.

Before doing that keep doing what you're doing by educating yourself. Once you can speak the language (it's not really that complicated, but some people like to make it seem that way), it will be much easier to connect with others to get more help/guidance. That being said don't be afraid to ask questions. Doing that and just getting started by actually doing deals is the easiest way to learn.
