1. Get in front of buyers every week.

Buyers are the people who can tell you “yes,” the people who can sign the check without getting anyone else’s approval. Identify these people through Linkedin, referrals, vendors, subcontractors, and anyone else who can help you figure out where the next job lies. Each year, make a list of those people you’d like to meet—people who can buy what you’re selling. Then, devise a plan to get in front of them.
