This week, Mikkel Becker joins Tabitha. She begins by sharing one of the most interesting stories I have heard of what led her to leave her initial career and begin to work with animals. We get real and share experiences of how we can sometimes not advocate for ourselves like the animals we work with and what has helped us along the way. She also shares her advice on getting comfortable in front of the camera, dealing with criticism, and how to be authentic on video.
