“There’s a Sufi teaching that says the divine created the human being to make mistakes. Mistakes are so important to life and to love and to our connection.”

— Mark Silver

Since 1999, Mark Silver, M.Div., has worked with heart-centered entrepreneurs to help them realize that every act of business can be an act of love. Mark is one of the pioneers in integrating real spirituality with the nitty-gritty of small business and founded Heart of Business, Inc in 2001. He is a designated Master Teacher within his Sufi lineage and has received his Masters of Divinity.

As a coach, teacher, and spiritual healer, Mark has facilitated thousands of individual sessions with entrepreneurs and has led hundreds of classes, seminars, groups, and retreats. His weekly writings and teachings are followed by thousands of people around the globe.

Mark is a fourth-generation entrepreneur, and prior to Heart of Business, he ran a distribution business, turned around a struggling non-profit magazine, and worked as a paramedic in the San Francisco Bay Area.
