Listen! The biggest opportunity of my career came down to getting my business certified through SAM.Gov during a small window of time. And Dr. Nicole King-Smith and her team at NK Enterprise Consulting made it happen. Dr. Nicole King-Smith worked with me one-on-one to make sure I knew what was required and why it matters as a minority owned business. Even after the application was submitted, Dr. Nicole King-Smith made herself available for any request that came during the application process. I’m thrilled to say my business is SAM.GOV certified and that wouldn’t have been possible without NK Enterprise Consulting.
