With so many people in and outside of the country experiencing the tremendous effects of the pandemic—from losing their jobs to being forced to shut down their business and experiencing a massive cashflow crunch—affected individuals are in dire need of help to recover. Master negotiator, consultant, and sales coach Marshall Wilkinson is stepping out of his comfort zone to offer coaching services that will deliver results and boost the confidence of those affected and get them back on track.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 17.75 million Americans did not have a job in June 2020.

It is for this reason he is putting himself out there so that entrepreneurs, sales people, contractors, real estate brokers, and other executives can connect with him.
“The onset of COVID-19 was a big motivator for me to help get people back in the game and perform their absolute best, to equip them with the skills necessary to keep their business afloat and put themselves in a position to win. I have a unique skill-set and have had the advantage of being in business at a high level, with experience that few ever get to benefit from,” Marshall explains.
