Did you know that today, Monday, June 17, kicks off National Small Business Week in the US? To mark the occasion, we want to share with you some small business tips we learned last week at a women-owned small business (WOSB) meeting conducted by Congresswomen Eddie Bernice Johnson. We learned a termendous amount about how to apply for government contracting. While Forward Vision Marketing, LLC is a WOSB specializing in technology marketing, we were not registered in the SAM, System for Award Management. Fortunately, it is easy to create an account in the SAM website.

After registering in SAM, we had to apply for Women-Owned Small Business certification at: www.sba.gov/wosb. We also learned that there are local offices in North Texas that can help guide us through the qualification process. These offices include:
We are still in the process of becoming WSOB certified. We hope the classification will be valuable for winning potential government contracts and for appealing to our RFID marketing, IoT marketing, and other technology marketing clients who want to support women-owned small business.
