New & need some help & advice!

Hello to all the entrepreneurs & upcoming entrepreneurs out there! My name is Dustin & I live in a suburb of Houston Tx called Pearland. I am NOT currently a entrepreneur yet (I work in the Chemical Industry) but I'm hoping to be in business for myself within a year or so.
Many successful entrepreneurs grew up in the family business, inherited the business or started their own business after learning the ropes from the family business; Many successful entrepreneurs have successful people in their corner who showed them how to start & run a business in the form of a close friend, family member and/or entrepreneurs that they know, etc. etc. I'm the guy who has NONE of the above & I have to do everything 100% by myself in order to make it. That's what led me to this site :D
Although I'm not sure what direction I want to go in (not sure if I want to by a business for sale, buy a franchise, or start my own business), I definitely have the drive, dedication, determination & passion to be successful at whatever I choose to do.
What I am looking for is like minded individuals in & around the Houston area who I may be able to link up with, talk with & brain storm with. Not only that, maybe I can be linked up with business owners who may want to help guide me in the right direction. Basically, I am looking for any help, information and/or advice that may benefit me. Also looking for business opportunities in & around the Houston area.
