Review: Cash in on the Obama $3 Trillion Spending Plan! by Ed Benjamin

In the time it takes to read the introduction to this book, the federal government will disburse millions of dollars to businesses just like yours. And with the passage of President Barack Obama’s historic stimulus bill, there’s never been a better time to do business with the government. Indeed, if you can provide it, chances are the government would like to buy it!

Think you don’t qualify? Put off by bureaucratic red tape? Think again.

Cash In on the Obama $3 Trillion Spending Plan!
shows you how to land contracts, grants or loans ­— even if you have no previous experience with the government or are a one-person business.

You’ll discover:

- What the government wants to buy — from janitorial and engineering
services to paper, pens and pencils;

- How the federal procurement process works: Learn the difference
between a request for proposal and an invitation to bid;

- Proven ways to stand out from the crowd — including the magic word
that should be in any proposal guaranteed to “wow” decision-makers;

- Where the government advertises its needs, so you can target your
goods and services where they’ll have the best chance;

- Much, much more!

Written by a renowned contract consultant,
