Lisa and Paul...I just wanted to report to both of you...with sincere appreciation for your assistance... that I won my first gov bid contract as a CCR Registered Small Business. If there is somewhere I can log this success in to help justify the need for your counseling program, please send the form and I will report this right away.
Without help from both of you, I would still be ‘in the weeds’ trying to comply with the gov registration process. I still have a lot to learn but this award is a great start and indication that you steered me in the right direction...
