Mac Prichard was disillusioned with college. Carrying a mediocre grade point average, he was about to drop out after his sophomore year. Although he barely knew his academic advisor, he decided to have a talk with him before reaching a decision. “He was a nice enough guy, and he made some suggestions I decided to follow.” Mac recalls. “He probably does not recall that conversation. But for me it was life changing.” Today, Mac is the publisher of Mac’s List, an online community for people looking for rewarding careers, doing creative and meaningful work, with 80,000 visitors each month.
