I am going to get my real estate license after letting it expire. My goal is to wholesale.

I am new to this so I am not sure in what capacity having a license would help me, but I know it will. Do I need broker sponsorship if I am not planning to buy or sell retail?

If so, how does one go about finding a sponsor for that reason? I don't think anyone would want to sponsor me if my plan is to just be another name on their roster.

Thank you in advance,
