I'm very new to this. I have recently been using kali linux via rasberry pi and virtualbox. But I do not know what I'm doing. I have searched the web for good tutorials and have even paid for some via Udemy, but I have not learned anything. Is there anyone out there that might be able to help me from scratch to learn? I'm very eager to learn pentesting and pursuing it as a career. I've read that Kali Linux is a start but I have no clue what I am doing here. Any help would be great! thanks
Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer. Avoid asking multiple distinct questions at once.

I strongly suggest by starting in the right place, this is a Q&A site for Information Security, not a forum so I'm pretty sure this question will be closed soon. Answers cannot be opinion based, but I suggest you Hak5 on Youtube, SecurityTube, Pluralsight.com have the CompTIA Security+ and CEH path here and here, and get a bachelor on any computer science area to begin with.
And about the forum and Q&A site, if you want to have a discussion about what's better and what's not, and opinions try the Kali Linux Forums.
