  • 5. SPEAKING TO THE CUSTOMER IN THEIR LANGUAGE IS HARD. AS A TEAM (MANY COMPANIES, ONE VOICE) IT IS MUCH MORE DIFFICULT For Example: If You Tell a DoD Customer to “Secure a Building” … YOU GET DIFFERENT REACTIONS The Navy Will Turn off the Lights and Lock the Door The Army Will Occupy the Building So No One Can Enter The Marines Will Assault the Building, Capture It Using Suppressive Fire and Close Combat, and Defend It The Air Force Will Take Out a Three Year Lease With an Option to Purchase
  • 6. Common Sense, Common Courtesy-- Not So Common People do business with those whom they know and trust-  You should too; Work with agencies/people you know and trust Focus your call/capture plans-  Determine realistic timelines and expectations  Expect delays  “Define you parameters of capability/improve your probabilities of success” Learn the system-  It’s different the day after you retire/separate  It changes daily, it requires help, perseverance, and continued training  You, not the system, determine your success or failure
