Robert T. YoungbloodMark Deutsch Gets Results! Mark and I first met in 2008 during a National Speakers Association meeting in Richmond, Virginia. I noticed that we had many things in common, however the one quality that Mark possess that interested me the most was the fact that he was a Sales Expert. Mark has taught me that sales is more than just attempting to get your product in the hands of the end user. He taught me that one must build a connection that leads to a relationship with your potential customers. In developing that link, one is able to become a Sales Magnet and attract business to themselves. When it comes to business, I truly believe its important to listen to people who have the “fruit on the tree” and I can truly say that Mark has set an excellent example of a man who maintains High Integrity, Professionalism and keeps his priorities in order. Mark is a Great Asset to anyone who aspires to be a better Sales Professional. He definitely gets results!”
