Mission
“I really enjoyed Business-Building Referrals. I didn’t expect it to be so engaging, as the topic didn’t seem to apply to me. However, it totally held my interest and I kept finding myself saying, ‘yeah, that’s great advice for these other situations, too.’ Lorraine’s writing style is friendly and down to earth, very easy to understand, yet professional. This book will be a gem for anyone serious about growing their business. There’s no doubt a lot of work to be done, but Lorraine has broken it down into manageable pieces that will give confidence to even the faintest of hearts.”

“Everyone wants a referral-based business because we all know that the best prospects come from referrals. They are less skeptical, cost less and are more comfortable to acquire. But mastering the art of having a steady stream of referrals is something else indeed. Lorraine Lane knows. She’s studied it, tested what works—and what doesn’t. She’s taught it and refined it into a science. And she’s sharing it with you now in this book. If you want to learn something well, find a master and listen and practice carefully. Lorraine is that master. And this book will put you on the path to mastering business-building referrals. I highly recommend it.”

“In Business-Building Referrals, Lorraine Lane describes the practical details of positioning oneself with the right trajectory to create a thriving business. Working in small metro area markets, where most people live and work, making connections is imperative. Building on her own struggles and experience, Lorraine lays out an honest and straight-forward program for conquering internal and external barriers to success. She weaves the practical realities of being your own sales person and business developer with concrete actions that can take the reader from bewildered to benefiting in business.”

“My wife met Lorraine Lane at a networking event we were attending, and immediately sought me out in the crowd to introduce me. With the down-turn in the economy, my law practice was suffering, as was just about every other business we knew. Lorraine introduced herself as someone who helped businesses like mine to grow. This was something my firm definitely needed. Lawyer advertising has become big business, but our law firm is small and focuses on personal referrals as its main source of clientele. I hired Lorraine shortly after our meeting to help ‘re-grow’ our business. Lorraine incorporated her 'four As’ and helped motivate my partners, my staff, and me to become more aware and attentive to the business. It wasn’t long before we began to redevelop referral partners, increase referral sources, and generally enjoy a revitalization of our practice. I know first-hand that the A-Game is a winning formula to improve business, increase revenues, and more importantly generate a long-term referral base. I thank my wife Arndrea for making this valuable introduction and Lorraine for helping take my business to the next level.”

“One of the As in Lorraine’s A-Game Program is ‘Awareness and Attention.’ As a result of participating in the program, I now bring a much higher level of awareness and attention to everything I do in my business, and it has paid off. In her program, Lorraine encourages self-awareness. I now have a self-awareness practice in which I allow myself fifteen quiet minutes every day—with no email and no phone calls. While this practice may sound basic, and be obvious to some, it is one that has had a significant positive impact on me and my business.”
