Mac Frederick: Sacrificing His Dream Job at Google to Help Small Businesses

Mac Frederick is the Founder and CEO of two companies: one, Momentum Digital, is a digital marketing agency. The other, Phone Repair Philly, is a phone repair company with that was named Best Smartphone Repair Shop by PhillyMag in 2018. 

Mac is also the creator of the Small Business Saturday initiative, which creates newsletters, podcasts, and videos that highlight the stories behind Philly’s many different small businesses.

In this episode, you’ll hear how Mac would land an extremely competitive job selling search results ads at Google. When he noticed that many of his customers were small businesses, he started helping them off-the-clock. That didn’t sit well with his employer, and he was fired.

That same week, he also was fired from a separate business he was helping to build. And just when he thought it couldn’t get any worse, he got a call from his mother informing him that she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

His mother would inspire him to overcome these challenges, and he’d build two successful companies at the same time. The rest of the time he devotes to uplifting Small Businesses.
