Mark M. Deutsch, MBA has been in your shoes. During his
25-year-plus entrepreneurial career, Mark has started or operated
more than a dozen companies ranging from a landscaping business
(while in middle school) to a medical billing software company
(during the dot-com boom). He has been involved at a C-level with businesses that
had 0 to 100 employees; start-up to mature stages; with companies that succeeded
and others that imploded. After learning some valuable lessons in the school of hard
knocks, Mark has determined that your most valuable business asset is your personal
and professional network.
Called the “Mayor of Richmond, Virginia,” and the “guy who knows everyone,” Mark
moved to Richmond, VA from Orlando, FL in 1993, knowing no one except the manager
of the company he was coming to work for. Today he has a personal and professional
network without equal, and Mark is a Master Networker, Author, Speaker,
Trainer, Seminar Leader, Online Information Marketer, and life-long Entrepreneur.
Currently, Mark is the Executive Director & CEO of BNI (Business Network International)

by referrals.
The son of German immigrants who survived forced labor camps after WW II, Mark
cut his teeth in an environment of hard work, survival, overcoming obstacles, and
bootstrapping. He built his first multi-million dollar company before he was 30 years
old, lost it all, and has bounced back. Mark authors hundreds of articles and he speaks
more than 200 times every year to trade associations, business organizations, and
professional groups on the topics of networking, sales, marketing, search engine marketing,
and social media marketing. Mark is an active member of several boards, and
he also owns equity positions in a number of small and mid-sized private businesses
