How Do I Build My Network of Referral Sources?The greatest source for generating business in any professional discipline is referrals. And referral business does not come by happenstance. It comes as a result of calculated moves on your part, moves—not move—being the operative word. Often practitioners mistakenly believe that with one action taken, they will reap many dividends. This simply is not the case; if it was, everyone would be rich. Building an ironclad network of referral business requires taking many steps, taking them repeatedly, over many months and years. It requires a discipline that must be built into your psyche to where it becomes practically a habit. Follow this advice, and you will succeed in your pursuits.
