Are you mentally taking yourself out of the game?

Have you been thinking there is too much competition in the government marketplace?  

Surprisingly for most, there are at least three ways the competition is eliminated within the government marketplace and YOU don't have to let it stop you from walking down contracts.

How I landed a huge contract in less than 30-days!

There are billions of people in this world and the federal contracting marketplace. There are a few that you see often in the marketplace winning contracts. I wondered why that was especially with the government spending trillions of dollars every year with small businesses.

At first, I thought maybe it was me. Maybe I’m tripping was what I thought until I started working with contractors in my business. What are they doing that I’m not? Why are they getting contracts on repeat?

That’s when I realized they were doing something different than

My Business Changed Overnight When I…

Have you been struggling in your business for some time now? I struggled for 3 years trying to crack the code on government contracting to land my first lucrative government contract!

I felt like I was going in a million different directions trying everything I could think of, what I’d learned at school, and what I saw others doing. I even attended workshops and seminars on marketing to the government.

Just as scattered as I was with my efforts were the results I was getting.

3 Reasons why you can’t seem to land your first government contract…

I have people coming to me often because they’ve hit a roadblock in their business. They find it challenging to land their first government contract.

I’ve narrowed it down to 3 reasons:

  1. They haven’t met the requirements because they don’t know the requirements...

How I landed a $559K contract with one email!

Do you really know the power of email?

I’m asking because I didn’t. I believed that I had to go out networking, attend industry days, and trade shows to land contracts.

Now I’m not saying these marketing activities don’t work or that they’re not important because they are! If I said any different I’d be living by a double standard, which isn’t cool.

Understanding Government Contracting - Payments and Paperwork

Have you ever taken a class where from the very start it seemed like a foreign language?

I mean the stuff you were hearing sounded like something you’d never heard before. Like a foreign language!

When you look at transitioning from private sector work to government contracting it feels the same way, like a foreign language. Yet, when you get into government contracting you think one contract from the next will be the same. It’s just not so.

How To Get Your First Government Contract

Do you know what you can do to get your first contract? No. You’ve probably been trying without success. You're not alone in asking that question.

The mistake most people make is these three things:

  • Thinking you can go straight in as a prime contractor
  • Thinking prime contracting is the only way to a government contract
  • Not accessing your capability to perform

Let me explain...

The government spends more money with small businesses than anyone else. Trillions of dollars every year. It's the government just like taxes, there's a lot of paperwork and the government has their own beat that they dance to.

Who's Your Customer?

Do you know who's your government contracting customer? Have you ever asked yourself that question?

Most people don’t. Most small business owners jump all around the necessary questions and steps to getting their first government contract.

You don’t know what you don’t know. I give you that but how long do you really think it should take to get a government contract one year, two years, three years? Seriously, how long do you think it really should take? Come on? After a year of spinning your wheels, you have to know that something's not right. If you’re doing everything you know, it's what you don't know that is hurting you.

You may even ask people “how can I get my first government contract?”

How To Search Does Government Buy What You Sell

3 Critical Answers to Questions You Don’t Know to Ask When Tapping Into the Trillion-Dollar Government Marketplace

The government spends trillions of dollars each year with small businesses and there’s an equal amount of people interested in government contracting.

I know this because I get so many people coming to me, wanting to pick my brain. Some have a lot of questions of which I answer and teach in my Bootcamp. Here are two questions most people ask:

  1. Does the government buy what I sell?
  2. How can I find out if they have contracts for the products and services I provide?

Being An Entrepreneur (It Ain't Easy!)

Do you go around believing that you need to have everything in place before you get started with something new?

I get asked often about my journey with coaching and mentoring as the student and not the teacher. Which is why I’m going to share with you what I’ve learned from the coaches I’ve worked with over the last 3 years.

I’m sharing this so that you can see that having a coach or mentor that can help you when you struggle, hit a roadblock, or feel overwhelmed with it all is totally worth the investment. I'm even sharing some numbers. 

The Government Never Really Runs Out Of Money!

I think I was more excited than the kids about our field trip to the Bureau of Engraving and Print Facility in Fort Worth, Texas.

It was on my list of places to visit this summer and then my son’s class had a field trip there!  I was like I’m going. Had my t-shirt and all.

The only down fall is there’s a no cell phone or electronic devices rule. I’m gathering they don’t want you to take pictures or record the layout, process, and machines in their facility.

If you ever had a question of will your client be able to pay? Will they pay on time? Will they see the value in what I offer. This will no longer be your reality. The government is different than most!

5 Reasons Why You Need Contracts In Addition To Clients

Ever had a brain fart? I’ve been living one myself for well over a year! Now for my clients, they can say they didn’t know. I don’t have the same excuse. I’ve lived on the other side. I know better.

I’ve been exhausting myself chasing clients to provide bookkeeping services and training. Of course, everyone needs to either learn how to do their bookkeeping themselves or have someone do it for them. You remember the IRS, taxes, yeah we all must file every year. It’s required, right.

The profit margins just aren’t there. Clients want to pay by how many hours it take to do the work, like $25-$50 an hour.

Are you ready for this? It’s just as good as having the cure for cancer!

What's up!

I’m gearing up this week for my next live training. And I was hoping you’d join me. Being honest, I’ve had the cure for cancer and I haven’t been sharing it with you.

Okay, it’s not the cure for cancer, but it’s the cure for you if you’d like to stop chasing clients.

THE “WHAT IF’S” YOU KEEP SAYING IN YOUR HEAD WILL KILL YOUR BUSINESS

I can’t tell you how many brilliant ideas I come up with. I even share them. And I know they’re brilliant ideas because they are out there in the marketplace. Lots of money is being made.

The only problem is I'm not making any of that money! The reason why is because I never brought it to market! I allowed the “WHAT IF’S” and “SHOULD OF’S” stop me.

Looking back it was nothing more than fear of the unknown. It’s no different than the woman staying in a bad relationship because she’s afraid of what could be.

STOP TREATING YOUR BUSINESS LIKE THE CAFETERIA LINE AT SCHOOL!

Your business is not like the buffet line where you get to pick and choose what you want.

Ever went to a restaurant to order your food and get that gut reminder that this is not Burger King, you know “have it your way.”
