The wisdom becomes uniquely your own and is greater than the sum of the parts. Thatâ€™s a successful use of instructor resources. Shop for your instructors like you shop for anything else. They all have bios out there. Learn what each has to offer, engage them frequently, and use them to your best advantage!
