Can You Learn The Basics of Government Contracting

Whenever  I start doubting myself and my abilities, I remember my Dad telling me I can do whatever I want and be whatever I want.  

Now, my Dad played a very big role in my life, so… yes, I believed whatever he said.

I remember one time sitting in the office of my supervisor, the Chief Financial Officer for the Department of Veteran Affairs. I don’t remember why I was in his office, but I do remember a piece of the conversation.

Does Mixing Business With Friends Work?

It’s rude for your friend to say “no” when you ask them to teach you about government contracting.

Friends are the best. Although in business, often times it’s difficult to find friends that have a common interest and common goals.

A good friend always mean well and would never do anything intentionally to hurt you.

Government Contracting Success - Are You Asking The Right Questions?

Not knowing what questions to ask and when can tank your business relationships quick.

A potential client that’s been on my list for some time considered working with me, but before she pulled the trigger to work with me she had a couple of questions. Did I win any contracts? Did I have contracts for her?

    Government Contracting Basics -

    I recently recorded a video for my Contractor’s Edge Bootcamp community on searching fbo, the wealth of information, and how to use it. I got all excited because I came across contracting opportunities for a few of my clients.

    I reached out and sent them the video link via email and I uploaded it to the CEB portal.

    One of my clients called me about the video. They were going to reach out to the contracting officer and ask them a few questions in relation to the contract and how they planned to go after (bid) the project.

    STOP! Is what I said.

      Contractors You Can Level Up Your Small Business

      The REASONS are made up. The FEELINGS are fear The WAITING is  not knowing what to do

      Stop with the DOUBT and Start taking ACTION...

      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.
