As small businesses, sometimes it doesn’t occur to us to reach as big as we could. If you’re a coach, consultant, or subject matter expert, there may be much bigger clients out there for you than you’re currently thinking. Or maybe you're already landing corporate clients and want it to be easier and more consistent. Today, my guest Angelique Rewers shares insights on how small businesses can reach bigger corporate clients. She encourages business owners to stop ruling out opportunities because they seem out of reach. Angelique stresses the importance of thinking from the point of view of the corporate decision-maker and becoming a resource within their network. I’m positive our conversation will offer ideas and strategies that are applicable to all small businesses seeking to reach clients bigger than their current market.
