Mission
“Last year I had the pleasure of participating in a ten-week program that focused on your referral A-Game, facilitated by Lorraine Lane. As a very busy financial advisor, I am always leery about committing my time to anything but my practice. As it turned out, Lorraine’s program was a surprising game-changer for me. Over the course of the class, Lorraine really taught me to be much more aware of my surroundings, my clients’ goals, and most importantly, how I was interacting with others. The ultimate benefit I received is the ability to truly listen. My listening skills have been refined and as a result, I’ve enjoyed increased client acquisition, and have been able to uncover more opportunities in my practice. The enhancement of my listening skills has been a gift. I recommend Lorraine and her A-Game Program to anyone who is looking for a game changer in their career or business.”

“Lorraine’s A-Game Program had a major impact on my business practices, marketing attitude and—most importantly—on the results to my bottom line. The A-Game Program of Business-Building Referrals is about so much more than referrals: it encompasses how you think about referrals, the actions you take to build business relationships, and the creation of an environment that is beneficial to both you and your referral partners. I love this program and recommend it to everyone I know who has clients or customers, and anyone who wants to develop a bigger community based on mutual interests.”

“Business-Building Referrals provides the foundation to maximize networking activities and enhance the steps to reach potential clients. Lorraine demonstrates the experience in building successful networks from the ground up and her A-Game method provides the basic tenets to successful revenue growth. Lorraine’s direct consultation has provided a great impact on our organization.”

“The four As of the A-Game of Business-Building Referrals caused a big turnaround in my thinking. I learned that building a referral business is not just about networking. It’s about making connections when you network, and then building relationships with those whose businesses I can help, and who can help me.”
Cheryl Herman
“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.”
