The most important thing you need to succeed as a vegan is confidence. When you first become a vegan and people start finding out everyone is suddenly a doctor, nutritionist, biologist or anthropologist (/sarcasm) and they begin to use their deep knowledge of these subjects to tell you why you are wrong.
It is important to be prepared to handle their questions, not just for their benefit, but for your own. You don’t want to leave an exchange feeling like you made a mistake going vegan. The content in these videos and resources has provided me with plenty of knowledge and confidence about my choice and I hope they can help you as well.
