Guest Bio

Who is Mark Firth In 2003 you’d have found me making 100+ cold calls every single day in the city of London, as a determined young salesperson. Since then I’ve been trained in sales and Marketing by the likes of IBM and Siemens, sold $500k + deals. But, ultimately ended up empty inside – selling something I didn’t believe in is tough. I quit. I then founded Linkedpreneurs to make sure EVERY professional business owner has the knowledge and help they need to fulfil their potential. I want to help you make A HUGE impact through mastering this platform
