Relationships to Referrals with Lakeisha Fields


What we discuss: 

  • Lakeisha’s long-term, non-pushy strategy to become the “go to” private practitioner in her area
  • How she moved from a generalist practice to a niche practice AND how she picked her area of specialization
  •  Why she “re-launched” her private practice
  • Her revenue sources and what she recommends to those just getting started with insurance
  • How she’s giving presentations at local daycares to build her practice
  • How she’s identifying the needs of her clients and figuring out what kinds of services to offer (hint: it seems simple but is very clever!)
