Mackenzie Thompson, PodCast | TheMacLyf & Fake Paid Articles




“Mackenzie Thompson aka TheMacLyf  is a YouTube Podcaster, Online Marketer, and Founder of the Program, The Hive Mind” – Bio from Paid Articles

Mackenzie Thompson’s commissioned articles delve into his Facebook Marketplace drop shipping venture and his YouTube Podcast journey.
