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.”

“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.”

“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.”

“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.

“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.”
