    I am still pretty new at this whole realm of Government selling but am learning a lot, and very quickly (though I feel like it took forever to learn anything). Being such, we have done a lot of leg work to contact the government contacts that interest us, etc. I do have a lot to learn yet about Marketing to the government.
