Although Brown’s clients are affluent, her own upbringing was far more modest.  

Raised by two school teachers in a rural farming town in upstate New York, Brown learned at the age of twelve how hard work translated into money, rising at six o’clock in the morning during her summer breaks to pick strawberries on a farm for twenty-five cents per quart.  This perspective laid the foundation for the appreciation she has for money today.

A wife, a mother to three children including a set of twins, a community advocate for homeless families, a running coach, marathoner, adventure racer, MBA graduate, author, and speaker, Lisa has a “get things done well” attitude.

About Our Guest: 

You may have been taught that to receive referrals you must ask for them. Stacey Brown-Randall believes the opposite. And her clients are living proof that you do not need to ask, compensate, be overly promotional or manipulate to receive referrals (and tons of them).

There is a better way.

Stacey helps business owners achieve a referral explosion by teaching a simple, 5-step process to receive referrals in a way that honors the relationship with those who refer you. We know the general advice on referrals has been to “just ask.” But when you understand the human dynamic and psychology behind why referrals happen, you unlock the ability to generate referrals without asking for them.
