Normally, I share some links that I have read during the week. But in today’s post, I have decided to share some links and resources from a meeting I had with my former teacher and mentor Erik Forrester. Over the past couple of months, my career path has been in transition. I am thankful for the support of my family, friends and colleagues who have offered words of advice and guidance. I value the relationship I have had with my two mentors (Michael Carney and Erik Forrester) and no matter where your life takes you, find someone you can trust to be your mentor.

Below are some books, videos and other links that I collected during our meeting. Have a great week.
