In today’s episode, I am thrilled to chat with Mac Prichard. He worked for over a decade as a communications leader for several non-profit organizations, and today is the founder and president of his own company, Prichard Communications – a public relations organization that serves top-tier foundations, nonprofits and purpose-driven brands across the country.

Mac also founded Mac’s List – an online community that connects tens of thousands of creative professionals (each month!) to creative work and meaningful careers. His Find Your Dream Job podcast garners large audiences and helps them earn fulfilling roles that build meaningful careers. Finally, Mac has also published two books to add to his mission to enable others to do good in the world.
