Over the years, a number of folks new to the field have passed by me for induction. I typically supply a list of my favorite resources at the outset and the following is what it looks like. A couple of disclaimers before we begin. 1. This isn’t an exclusive list of people I follow for value-add contributions, there are numerous people, websites and other materials beyond this starter pack that are amazing, but time and space are of the essence as always 2. Some of the individuals below are people with whom I am affiliated. Make no mistake I am listing these resources because I truly think they are valuable and that’s also why I have sought out certain individuals on the list to communicate with or gotten to know them as friends – because of the fascinating work they do and their extreme competence.
