When I last spoke with you I was thinking about teaming with an 8a firm well I stepped out on faith. Well, I entered into a joint venture program with them and it has paid off. We were awarded our first contract which was an IDIQ fixed price for 5 years. The dollar amount of this contract has changed our life no really I’m not joking. We get started the first week in February 2018. The total is 49.9 million equals 9.9 Million a year.
I followed the steps you gave: planning, positioning in the marketplace, built a profitable partnership, increased my capacity to perform, implemented profit strategies, and controlled my pace. Thank you for your help.
I now have a systematic, optimized, and focused approach to being awarded government contracts that will also save time. Our company offers unique products tailored to the world of aviation. Such a narrow niche requires greater precision with effective marketing strategies. Mentoring with Felicia has provided insights that I had not considered before. I highly recommend this program to those either established or just embarking on the journey in the world of government contracting.

Working with Felicia has given me the confidence to prepare, research and bid in our specific area. She really focused on our current state and helped us in understanding how to breakdown and extract the important elements of an RFP. She also has shared some valuable marketing tips on how to speak to decision-makers as well as prepare for diversity events. She constantly tailors her coaching in the direction you want to take your business. I can truly say that my experience of working with Felicia has been extremely valuable.

After starting from scratch, with just an idea, I won my first contract in 60 days of starting the Bootcamp with Felicia. Within 90 days, I’d won 2 more and now in less than 6 months I’ve won a total of $96,000 in contracts plus a 5-year contract! This was really good. Thanks Felicia.
Within and after our time together I’ve Submitted our 8(a) application, Submitted our Hubzone application, Submitted our DBE application, Established a marketing strategy, Entered into 1 JV and 1 teaming agreement with an 8(a), Met with the SBA, Chief of Engineering and Contracting Officers for the USACE districts that I am targeting. Established a system for bidding (full proforma), Cleaned up my back office and quick books by establishing financial controls/processes, Published my financials in GAAP format.
Working with Mrs. Streeter has been very knowledgeable. She takes the time to explain the steps of each process. Coming into the program I didn’t understand that there were certain steps that I must follow in order to make the process work better for my own business. Her vast knowledge helped me look for the information that I needed to at a faster and more accurate pace than I had done before starting the program.
Following Felicia’s steps makes her program easy to understand and guide you through the contract in a couple of days and allows you to focus on the main points of a contract. These things eliminate wasted time if you are thinking of bidding on something that you are not qualified for. She makes it clear that you should pick 3-5 customers and focus on them, make them your foundation.
Viewing the different modules allows you to focus on things that you may not have thought about before.
Working with Felicia has been great for my learning in all areas of my business.
ABSOLUTELY GREAT! Felicia’s program was great and she went deeper than just the surface stuff without overwhelming me with tons of info. I’m currently implementing the juicy content that she’s shared and have already begun to see results. One deal totaling over $24,000! it’s a pleasure working with you.
YIPPEE HOO! Your Collaboration Checklist is getting worn out, Felicia. I have been carrying copies to each meet-up. NOW the right people are coming my way. I’ve also created two collaborations deals that are mutually beneficial and now are turning into joint venture deals! I’m expanding my reach and getting more visibility in such a big way. These two deals alone will produce outrageously profitable results for years to come!
I researched Mrs. Streeter a great deal before I solicited her services. It was actually her thorough and informative YouTube videos that won me over as a customer. I was confident, based on the passion she showed in her videos, that the future of my company would be in good hands, and that it’d have a solid foundation. Our phone meetings have proven to be extremely worthwhile, as she provides nuggets that I’m sure are not common knowledge.
Prior to soliciting her services, my business was stagnant and definitely unproductive. Now, Mrs. Streeter is guiding me step-by-step to ensure that my business is successful and flourishes in government contracting. If anyone questions the value of her program, please have them call/email me. I’ll be happy to talk to them about it.

I really appreciate you sharing your experiences as an entrepreneur, and your wins and challenges too! I appreciate your authenticity.
I had several ah-ha moments during our time together, but I was moved when you shared how you became really comfortable, and was in your comfort zone while you were working for the other construction company, but God allowed a situation to come up that would make you uncomfortable in staying in the current position that would push and propel you forward so you would get into action about truly stepping into your calling as an entrepreneur. Your experience really resonates with me because I’m currently working through a similar situation.
And this situation has really put me into action about achieving my goal. I know it’s within my reach, and as long as I pray and stay focused, consistent, and execute the necessary action steps, I will achieve it too. I have multiple action items that I’m currently working on now, to achieve the contractor’s edge, and I’m very optimistic about the results that my action and prayer will yield.
What really stuck with is your sharing on not letting others define success for you, and don’t compare yourself to others. As entrepreneurs we are at different stages in our business. My thoughts and ideas may be totally different from the way you define success, and it’s totally okay. At the end of the day we have to define what success looks like for ourselves.

Working with Felicia yielded extraordinary results. Her energy is contagious, and I could tell she has a true and sincere passion for being of service to her clients. From the start of the call, Felicia went straight into asking great questions about my contracting needs and then went on to maximize the value of our time by engaging in an in-depth brainstorming session that really helped me target my marketing strategies and message. I would recommend her to anyone hoping to zoom in on what their business truly needs to be successful with the help of an expert strategist.

I now know in order for my business to be successful, I must change my mindset and actually treat my business like a business and not a hobby. After working with Felicia, I now know how to create systems with the right sequencing around my business and family duties so I can focus on what matters most to me and get things done. Felicia showed me how I can stand out as an individual with what I offer. She also showed me how I can increase my steady flow of customers and offer more than just the product and how I can package it.

I have had many conversations with Felicia and she knows what it takes to create collaborations that benefit everyone. This is key to success and it’s why her high level of integrity, brilliance, and clarity make her my number one choice. She helped me get very clear about which collaboration deals worked for me, which didn’t, and she showed me how to structure the connections that made them successful. She is the collaboration queen! I’m delighted to have her as a friend and resource in my life. Thank you Felicia!

Felicia I now am expanding my view of what my business can accomplish. Going through the information and homework, is challenging me to think in ways I never have about my business and collaborations in particular. I have never been the one to set up a collaboration…but I will now. I am coming up with ideas that I think never would have been created without being a part of your contractor’s edge group.
– Denise Hall

After my VIP Day with Felicia, I have an entire new outlook on my business and the results I know I can achieve.
I have clarity around what I need to be focused on doing daily. I started my contracting journey within a week of talking with Felicia. I have a new service offer that I didn’t even think about! I would not have thought about these things if not for the help of Felicia. She helped me implement systems in my business to make it all happen.
– Joann Snell
FELICIA CONFIRMED FOR ME THAT MY BUSINESS IS DOABLE. I now have a better understanding of creating a sequenced system and how they will flow for my business.
Walking through the steps Felicia created has helped me narrow down my niche and identify my ideal customer along with the options for creating packaged proposals and bids that I had not even thought of that will allow me to make more money with less work!
For the past couple of weeks, I didn’t know how I was going to make this (my contracting business) happen and then Felicia appeared.

Before working with Felicia, I felt contracted when discussing money issues with my financial adviser. This caused me so much anxiety. After Felicia took me through a very powerful exercise, I had a shift in how I felt about having those money conversations.
This has set me free so that I can have these meetings and ask for what I need without feeling small and going after larger contracts.
Thank you Felicia, my experience working with you was priceless!!

For one, it was a woman, and secondly, a Black Woman! A category that was once donated by Men. I’ve had the privilege of being mentored by a few successful people like Tony Robbins, Zig Zigler, Juanell Teague, and my wonderful friend, Jack Canfield.
So, why all the background information, it’s not to be mistaken for boasting, please! It’s the fact that I’ve finally made a connection with a Successful Black Woman: The Million Dollar Mentor, who genuinely cares about the success of the people she serves.
When you invited me by email, to listen in on your last session, I was hooked because you made the information plain and simple to understand.
After being a No Show, on two Calls, I didn’t expect to hear from you ever again, but you just kept on forecasting! I registered and you began providing me with all the information to start my contracting business. I conceded that you were Heavy in your field.”
