and proud teacher moments...
Listen to what my community has to say about learning and working with me
I was able to get the WOSBE as well. I saved the certification letters. That's a big thank you! - Leland
I got the certification for minority and veteran-owned business within 2 weeks with Felicia’s help! Thank you so much for helping me to get here. Funny thing is a bid came through for Landscaping this morning so I will start bidding. The only way to go is up from here on out. Once again thank you.
Before working with Felicia, I was attempting to complete the SAM registration, but there was a question I did not know how to answer, and it would not let me go forward with completing the registration. I knew I needed help, but I did not know where to find it. So, I began to search YouTube videos in hopes there would be a video with in-depth information on SAM, and that’s when I saw Felicia’s videos and decided to reach out to her. I knew if my company is going to be successful, I will need to seek someone with the hands-on experience, of winning contracts, as Felicia.
While working with her, I was able to complete SAM, and received the federal (WOSB, EDWOSB, VOSB) and state (DBE) certifications, quickly. If it had not been for Felicia, none of this would have been possible to do alone. I want to say "Thanks" to you and The Next Level Contractor Program for all your help and guiding me towards the right path. And if anyone is considering this program, please waste no more time. Invest in yourself, and you will be so glad that you did!
I have 10 years of experience working with Federal, State, and Local contract on the financial management side and I have always had a passion for wanting to start my own business in this arena. In the back of my mind I was thinking this process should be easy enough for me to navigate with minimal direction so maybe I should just pass on Felicia’s Opportunity.
A few years ago, I spoke with another coach that was actually one of my clients on one of the many contracts that I have managed her fee was out of my price range. I definitely couldn’t justify this price tag. At this point in 2017 I created my LLC and I applied for my HUB and all the other federal and state business documents that I needed. So here we are two years later and that’s all I have a business name and a few documents.
I recently ran across Felicia Streeter’s webinar link on Behind the Scenes Secrets to Bidding Contracts on YouTube. After listening to the webinar, I was unsure about signing up for Contractor’s Edge Bootcamp. I had reservations for several reasons but the one major reason is that I was still thinking “two years later” I can navigate this process by myself. Felicia is very skilled at what she does so one day she emailed me an offer for what I called the game changer the Sequencing Formula. I purchased the Sequencing Formula on a Saturday morning and after following her steps within 5 days I had gone from just being registered with local government entities to being registered with the Federal government, I was also able to create an action plan for moving forward.
Sequencing Formula gave me the opportunity to see progress in a short amount of time and it help to build my confidence in moving forward with purchasing Contractor’s Edge Bootcamp. With Felicia’s guidance I am looking forward to bidding and winning contracts.
If for some reason you are undecided about any Felicia’s programs, I would say to you don’t reinvent the process trust the process. Thank you Felicia I trust the process!

For several weeks while taking the Contractor’s Edge Program, Felicia has tutored me in optimizing my approach to being awarded government contracts. Although I had some experience in this area, she provided me with a more systematic and focused approach that will save time while pursuing my business goals in the future. Our company offers unique products tailored to the world of aviation. Such a narrow niche requires greater precision with effective marketing strategies. The Contractor’s Edge Program 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.

I found Felicia while doing research on supplier diversity on YouTube. I watched many of her videos and got a lot insight on the tips she shared. At the time, I found Felicia while doing research on supplier diversity on YouTube. I watched many of her videos and got a lot insight on the tips she shared. At the time, I was very interested in branching out my business into the federal government space, but the prospect of bidding in the complex system was daunting and I really did not know where to start. 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 on the direction you want to take your business. I can truly say that my experience in working with the Contractor’s Edge Program and Felicia has been extremely valuable.

I’m getting closer to my goals thanks to Felicia. I’m getting it done along with her help. Everything she is telling you is the absolute TRUTH. No catches at all just honest.
After starting from scratch, with just an idea, I won my first contract in 60 days of starting the Bootcamp. Within 90 days, I’d won 2 more and now in less than 6 months I’ve won a total of 9 contracts and one is a 5-year contract! This was really good. Thanks Felicia.
I’ve only completed Modules 1-3 of the Contractor’s Edge Bootcamp and it is wonderful thus far. I really appreciate the level of detail, especially with the solicitation breakdown.
Since you and I last spoke we have accomplished the following: 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.
I just wanted to say after session 2, I felt I got my money's worth. I'm really pleased. There is no way I could have even thought of doing what all you've shared. Definitely work together in the future.
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.

As a tool, the training assists you in your business development and strategic planning and helps organize your business for servicing government contracts. Felicia also provides quick responses to your questions and an understanding of the tools you need to gain contracts and related leads.
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 amount is 49.9 million equals 9.9 Million a year.
I followed the steps you gave the "Six P's." I positioned, I built, I increased, I implemented, and I controlled with the end result a BIG contract! Thank you for your help.
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.
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 you're sharing in the Contractor's Edge Program and have already begun to see results.
One deal totaling over $24,000! You've done a great job and it's a pleasure working with you.
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.
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!
FELICIA'S THE BEST AT PARTNERSHIPS!
At helping you form Partnerships to take your business further faster, Felicia's the best! The right partnerships can help you quickly grow your business, and no one knows more about using partnerships than Felicia Streeter. Felicia is a powerhouse when it comes to creating lucrative partnerships that are mutually beneficial!
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.
VERY IMPACTFUL AND PERTINENT!
Felicia, thank you for the information you shared on Implementing Systems in my business. It was very impactful and pertinent. I have signed up for your session Contractor's Edge, and I also forwarded it to a few ladies I know who are struggling in that area of overwhelm as well. It let me know that I'm on the right track in setting my business up for success.
EXCELLENT AND VALUABLE CONTENT.
The content Felicia shared with me was excellent and valuable. She delivered the content on contracting and partnerships as promised and then some. I learned that partnerships are important no matter what your business. I'm now always looking to polish my presentation to potential partners. As the partnership expert, Felicia, I'm looking forward to working with you again in the future.
STRESS AND CONFUSION AROUND GROWING MY BUSINESS GONE!
After reading your chapter "Quarterbacking Without Touching the Ball" I was immediately able to get rid of a lot of the stress and confusion around how to grow my business without having to do it all myself.
I've known that I've needed to grow my team so that I can grow my business; but just the thought of having to put all of this in place made me almost sick.
But, your chapter broke things down so simple and easy to implement action steps. I don't feel so overwhelmed and I feel like I actually have the foundation steps I need now.
I'm truly working on becoming the visionary leader of my business and soon to be my team.
When you said "If you have to touch or be involved with everything that goes on in your business, and no one has the authority to approve anything without you, you are no longer an entrepreneur - you have become your own employee" really hit home for me.
So, using your system and amazing tips I will be creating my systems, delegating, and become less involved so that I can focus on income producing task.
A NEW OUTLOOK ON MY BUSINESS!
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.
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.

I’M GLAD I TOOK THE LEAP!
I probably wouldn’t have thought about doing partnerships. Felicia has given me the tools needed to start partnering with other business owners to create contracting deals.
FELICIA'S THE "GO TO" EXPERT.
When it comes to creating collaborations, Felicia Streeter is the "go to" expert. Her smart, no-nonsense business strategies are very effective in helping me to understand and sequence my steps to create a range of joint venture opportunities. Thanks to Felicia, The Million Dollar Mentor, I clearly know how to craft Irresistible Partnerships that will help me to increase my credibility, visibility and revenues.
EXPANDING MY VIEW WITH PARTNERSHIPS!
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 partnerships in particular. I have never been the one to set up a partnership...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.
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.
