I have another great guest on the podcast to chat all about her non-profit, Perfect Inc., which empowers formerly incarcerated women to achieve career success. Perfect Inc. founder Alyson McNair joined me to chat about the prison system and how her non-profit seeks to help women who are formerly incarcerated as they enter back into the real world.
