“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.”

“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.”

"I recommend the A-Game Program for every small business owner because it was of such value to me. I now have a solid base of referral partners and a steady stream of clients. I’ve become much better at networking as a result of the A-Game Program. I ask questions and I listen…instead of launching into a commentary about my business and myself. I’ve learned to be present with my clients and listen to their needs and how my service can help them. Several clients have told me how much they appreciate the fact that I listen to them. The A-Game of Business-Building Referrals is a proven strategy and my participation in it has made my business more enjoyable and more profitable."

“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.”
