No free lunch...
go on one of the on line websites and buy a used Guru information package. there will be plenty of good information in there and you only have to pay a hundred bucks or so for it.
But your right if you expect someone to just take you under their wing and teach you all their tricks your expectations need to be altered. There might be some folks that will mentor out of the goodness of their heart.. But I have not run into any.
You may want to see who the big wholesalers are in your area buy one lunch and offer to work for free for them bird dogging or whatever they need done... this will teach you bizz and if you bring them a deal they will normally cut you in for a piece if they buy it or flip it.
Keep your day job and enroll into RE school to get your RE license this will get you interacting with like minded individuals.. Go to some local RIA's again a good place to network they are full of newbies.. and there will always be a few at those meetings that are doing well and want to expand their newbie networks.
good luck with it. RE is a VERY demanding business that takes hours and years to learn and you starve in the beginning normally.

@Jovante Foreman reframe that. You haven't found anybody to mentor you YET. Persevere in learning. Persevere in finding a way to add value to another investor in exchange for training. And no whining.
thank you guys for the advice, iknow it takes a lot of work to be successful in this business i rather not waste money on a guru that only talks about what he wants to tal about though but im sure ill manage ill keep applying myself thanks again
@Jovante Foreman Don't give up! Following on other's replies and suggestions.
Learn as much as you can off sites like BP, Youtube, etc. There is so much free online information you don't need a guru or his fees to get the same information.
Then, start networking like a mad-dog. Once you show that you have a positive, can-do attitude, that will give people a better impression of who you are and what your goals are. You need to have a plan rather than just saying I want to wholesale.
An investor is usually too busy with projects to slice off some time to work with a newbie. However, if that newbie is ready to take on some of the pain and help them out, they get the help and you get what you want.
Nothing saying you can't do anything. Sometimes, waiting until the right time is also a good strategy. Know your business, know your goals, network yourself, and keep plugging along.
And right, don't whine. We've, well some of us, have been where you are.
