Tip #128: Support vegan authors.
If a vegan author comes to your city to promote their new book, go. It’s a great way to support the vegan community and you will probably learn something too.
“This is the decade of animals rights. It’s a great time to be alive.”
~Victoria Moran, author of Main Street Vegan (during her Chicago talk)
Tip #129: Become an expert.
According to Malcolm Gladwell, the author of Outliers, the key to success is practice and you become an expert after approximately 10,000 hours. That means if you commit to living vegan, you are technically an expert after one year and 53 days if you assume living vegan 24 hours a day is a form of practicing. If we take a more conservative approach and assume living vegan for 16 hours a day (while awake), then it will take you almost two years (one year and 260 days to be exact). Are you a vegan expert yet?
