Co-Founder Mike Claypool's Story of Building MAC Productions

One entrepreneur’s story… can be another’s inspiration.

Beginning in 1971—with the unconditional support of his father in the early years, the unwavering commitment of his wife for more than four decades, and the instrumental contributions, throughout, of many “Great People” as he calls them—Mike Claypool built a nationally respected, multifaceted, event-support company called MAC Productions.

In this engaging history of his enterprise, Claypool shares its successes, setbacks and guiding principles, as well as examples of courageous and imaginative response to opportunity, creative risk-taking and plain luck that every entrepreneur will find instructive and inspiring.

MAC Productions’ first five decades are dotted with entertaining Side Notes—often funny pranks and misadventures which illustrate the human and personal side of starting and growing a business.

This story talks about how MAC Productions made it through the first half-century ranging from 1971 to 2021.
