Becoming a Wholesaler

Hello my fellow real estate experts!

My name is Edgardo and I am a junior at The University of Texas at San Antonio where I am majoring in business administration management and a full time employee at a law firm. I am interested in real estate wholesaling as a side hustle. What is the first step to become a wholesaler? How did you begin? 

I am outgoing, outspoken and confident in my abilities to go into this field, please help.
