We all learn from others. It is true off course that you are only as smart as the advise you keep. Today I would like to share a list of notable online instructors and authors. As with any professional opinions, you may not agree 100% with all the submissions made by a notable instructor over time, however I find these individuals to be quite inspiring in one way or another. Note that some may have grown to popularity purely due to massive coupon promotion via platforms such as Udemy, Globalcademy or the old Skillfeed – whereas others already had a massive audience via social media and e-book authoring, which meant that they did not need to provide huge discounts via coupons in order to rise through the rankings.
