CRUSH your Year-End goals!

When bidding, I’m pretty sure you pay attention to what the contracting officers and primes say they want and then you put what you know into the mix and get to what EXACTLY needs to happen for them to get the results they want.

As I talk to prospective clients, I pay special attention to their needs, what they’re already doing and I figure out why it's not working.

What holds most people back and probably you to is when you’re not committed to your own success. You make EXCUSES why you can’t invest in a mentor. You don’t have the money to invest in a product… so you seek out the free resources like the SBA, PTAC, and SBDC. Well…

The Forgotten Strategy

The Forgotten Strategy

Ever been in a position where multiple people have been bidding for your time? Do you feel like you're being pulled in multiple directions? Or maybe it's just me. I have four kids.

I cannot imagine what it would have been like to have to change four diapers at one time, feeding four kids a bottle at one time. If you know anything about kids, they like that individualized, one-on-one attention. With four, how do you do that? It's hard. When they're all bidding for your time at the same time.

I was fortunate, thank God, that my first three were four years apart, literally. God's doing, not mine. The last one was 11 years later. Now that definitely was God's doing!

I didn't have to change four diapers at one time, which is great and maybe your story is a little bit different, but here's what I know about relationships and even business. You can't build a bunch of relationships effectively at one time.

Future Client Process And Resources

Future Client Process And Resources

Yesterday I was hanging out with the girls and we were talking about things we like doing. I shared my love for teaching and training. How I taught elementarily and at the college level. I emphasized how I love teaching and training, which I do.

One of the ladies asked what I do.

I told them I had my own business and that I help small businesses start, grow, and scale their business in the government market place. Three of them asked for my business card.

With them asking “what I do” It got me to thinking what those in my community might not know about what I do or how I do something.

It came to me that you might not know the process of being a client of mine, us working together 1:1. It’s actually a simple process.

It starts with a conversation. For the right people, it takes less than 30minutes. During the conversation, I’m listening for key things to decide whether we’d be a good fit to work together.
