Tolerations, Crying, and Business Secrets - Behind the Paw Week of Sept 20, 2020
Many ups and downs this week. We start with my realization of Tolerances and what I did about them over the weekend. I share an upswing followed the next day by a downswing. Besides crying I tell you what I did about the depressing report. We also chat a little about my failure video just posted to YouTube. Which led to the mini rant about "The One Secret" everyone is trying to delude us into believing (spoiler alert: there are none).  This is my first real peek behind the paw episode. It was recorded in one take off the cuff raw and real. What do you think of this journal style format?

New Season-Peek Behind the Paw of Weekly Life as a Pet Photographer/Videographer
"The most personal tales are often the most universal." My friend and creative coach Franklin Taggart said that to me years ago. The Pack Bulletin weekly email newsletter immediately changed to story format. Each week people read a hearfelt story of what I am going through, inspiration, and of course studio specials and information. This approach has resonated so well with that audience I am trying it here on the Tales with Tails podcast. This summer I stopped co-hosting the radio show Critter Patter so I could find a new direction with this podcast. (KRFC and Sue my co-host are awesome it was just time for me to move on.)
