“Referrals are the easiest and least expensive method to create this lifeblood of your business. Either you choose to ask for referrals, or you choose to struggle. The one reason people become an entrepreneur is to create freedom. You need to ask yourself if the next decision will contribute to your freedom or restrict your freedom.” – Rennie Gabriel
