In episode 185, I’m welcoming back Zach Nunn to the podcast. Zach was previously on episode 175. We’re rehashing some things we previously talked about, most importantly, mental health AND Rich’s new role at his current company.
Zach is the founder of Living Corporate, an online media company on a mission to empower black voices. Zach’s also a consultant at Price Waterhouse Cooper, where he leads multi-disciplinary teams which provide execution support to tech clients, energy clients, and healthcare clients.
In this episode, we’re talking about fatherhood, getting your priorities straight, the current happenings with Living Corporate, how to play “the game” at your job, and tips for staying authentic in a world and culture that already has their mind made up about you because of the color of your skin.
“You owe it to yourself to invest in yourself, all the time, but certainly in this season. I’ve yet to see anyone regret it.”– Zach Nunn
