Is anyone else in the environmental consulting industry? For over 30 years I've helped others write and manage their proposals, and today I submitted my first competitive proposal on behalf of my own company! (I've been in business for a year.) I'm proposing to use two women who used to work for me over 20 years ago!! Who knows what my chances are, but I definitely have some empathy and understanding for all those engineers and other technical staff I helped on their proposals! So nerve wracking!
