Ideally, you would start at Part I and follow along in order. That might make the most sense. However, this series is written similar to the mini-series Kaleidoscope on Netflix in which you can digest the content in any order you want, and it still make sense. Who am I to say where to start. 🙂
However you choose to browse through the content of this Series, I hope you find value in different Parts. If you have any questions or want more information, feel free to reach out. I’d be happy to discuss further.
