Podcast details

In life, we’re often reminded that what goes around comes around. A small act of kindness can go a long way, and you never know where it might lead. Whether you’re running a business or simply living your life, treating others with decency and respect is not only the right thing to do, but it can also lead to meaningful connections and lasting relationships.

In this episode of the BizMafia Podcast, we bring you a story of resilience, kindness, and triumph in the face of adversity. Our guest is none other than Mark McIntosh: a former sportscaster, Sports Illustrated writer, and a true mafioso of the sports industry. Mark takes us through his incredible career, discussing the unpredictable nature of sportscasting, the importance of relationships in the industry, and how his background as an athlete influenced his approach to the job. He reveals his personal story of how a rare disease, amyloidosis, shaped his life’s mission and the importance of community support in times of hardship.

Mark’s journey through the sports industry and his battle with amyloidosis offers a unique perspective on the parallels between sports, business, and overcoming life’s challenges. So sit back, relax, and get ready to be inspired as we chat with the one and only Mark McIntosh.
