As I mentioned in my last post I feel it is important to share some valuable resources that I have stumbled upon over the years. This is by no means a comprehensive list but I hope it offers you a place to start. I welcome you to share additional resources in the comments and I will do my best to amend this list accordingly. All links will open a new page so you can return here for more resources. Please feel free to share.
