Thank you to our speakers, Steve Canerossi and Sandy Bailey, who provided a great panel discussion on starting, managing, and growing your own proposal business. Below are some of the key take-aways:
1. Have a pipeline of work lined up before launching your business
2. Get an accountant to help with setting up your business and doing the business’s taxes
3. Apply for any certificates for the business prior to opening your doors
4. Network, network, network – it’s the best way to grow your business
Thank you as well to our participants! You helped keep the discussion lively and focused on relevant topics.
Next month, we will be hosting another seminar in Huntsville. The topic will be on building an electronic tool of useful links to increase the quality of your pursuit, while reducing time and effort. Most capture managers rely on a small handful of internet links (URL’s) in support of their capture effort. Consequently, their B&P expenditure time-to-pursue is higher and quality of the solution is lower. Our speakers, Jack Bailey and Sandy Bailey, will provide a large list of links and orient the attendees to them. We’ll send out the Eventbrite link in the next couple of days so watch your email boxes.
