Here are some general categories to look for.
Follow influential figures who have achieved success in your industry or the one you aspire to be in. These leaders often share valuable insights, trends, and experiences.
Look for experts and thought leaders who regularly publish articles, posts, and updates related to your field. They often offer unique perspectives and cutting-edge knowledge.
Follow the LinkedIn pages of companies you're interested in working for or with. It will keep you updated on their latest developments, job openings, and industry-related content.
Career coaches & consultants

Join relevant LinkedIn groups that focus on your industry or areas of expertise. Engaging in discussions and networking with like-minded professionals can be beneficial.

Influencers & motivational speakers
