Mark Evans DM is a 10X best-selling author, owner of multiple multi-million dollar businesses, real estate mogul, and angel investor to countless partners.
He’s involved in everything from real estate deals, restaurants, media companies, e-commerce stores, real estate developments, private lending, and everything in between.
Mark grew up in a trailer park outside of Columbus, Ohio with his parents and 2 sisters where money was a constant source of stress for his family. He knew he wanted a better life and working a traditional 9-to-5 wasn’t going to cut it. So he went the entrepreneurial route and never looked back.
At 18 he purchased his very first company (a gutter business) for $2,000.
By 30 he was flipping upwards of 60+ homes per month without ever stepping foot into a single property.
At 40 he has his hands in over 30+ businesses, multiple cashflow streams, and has created a name for himself in the business world as “The Deal Maker” (that’s what the DM in his name stands for) due to his ability to make it happen.
Mark has a business mind like no other and lives a lifestyle that most can only dream of. But his best quality is his character.
He does what he says and in a world full of posers and shysters, it’s refreshing to see a man keep his word and follow through.
Mark is one of the good ones. He currently resides near Cleveland, Ohio and spends half of the year in Parkland, Florida with his 2 children and his loving wife, Deena.
