About This Site
 
        People who can help and inform themselves have a big advantage.  Here are a few good articles that can a start building knowledge.  A couple of things to remember, it doesn't require a lot of resources to be successful, it just requires using the right ones and avoiding the wrong ones.   At the same time, please note, there are no perfect resources.  Some pieces apply to some situations while in some cases the people haven't acquired the necessary skills sets yet. (None of the following paid to be on this page.)
