What You Will Learn:

You will learn that the government does buy everything, and you'll find out WHO buys it.  

How do they buy your product or service?

How does the government find you?

How do you get into the government’s catalog where they shop?

A cap was lifted this year on government contracts for women, so now there are more opportunities than ever before!  You may be saying to yourself, “Why would I have an interest in knowing whether the government buys what I sell?” As an entrepreneur who started as a 1.5 person company I learned that you can start small and still sell tens of millions of dollars in products and services to not only the federal government but to local government, state government and to large corporations. It was amazing to learn that large corporations are similar as bureaucracies to the federal government. I also found that it took the same knowledge and skill set to be able to win a major seat around the table. The biggest take away for everyone in business is to know that the government does by everything: cosmetics, chairs, health and wellness, consulting, training, coaching, video services. I could go on and on but the real value of knowing the secrets of how I became successful is that you can take this knowledge and you can scale it to use it in virtually any industry and in any marketplace. The decision is yours.
