“I love working with Maile. Before I met her, I was dubious about business coaching. But, in June 2014 my practice was just moseying along, so I started working with Maile and the Referral Institute®. I have come to believe that working with Maile is one of the best expenditures I could make in the future of my practice. Maile was key to helping me figure out my purpose and the direction I want to take the practice in. Through participating in the Certified Networker® program especially, I’ve come to understand why I love to help clients with their estate planning needs, developed my vision and mission statements, as well as learned to develop deep lasting referral partnerships. In the last 5 months my practice has made enormous progress and I am reaching my goals!!! I am really passionate about my practice and purpose and am taking my practice to the next level!”

– Martha Davis Alexander, Estate Planning Attorney

“A little over a year ago, I met Maile at a Referral Success 101™ class where I became hooked on referral marketing. I immediately jumped into total immersion of the Certified Networker® program and have never regretted the time or monetary investment made in myself for my business. Maile Collmer is a fantastic business coach, training you on the tools needed to build your referral network, create a steady flow of referrals between you and your referral partners, and reach your business goals. Who knew doing business could be so fun?”

– Cynthia Wheeler, Commercial Real Estate Broker

“I was experiencing a hard time identifying my niche, and target market. I went to a Referral Success 101™ class and after meeting Maile and hearing what she had done for others – helping them grow their business through referral marketing – I knew I needed to become a client. Since becoming a client I have been able to identify my target market, define my niche, and grow my business about 30%. The classes are informative and fun, Maile has a great way of getting the information to her clients in a way that is easy to understand yet challenging so that you work to get the most out of the program. Maile makes you accountable for what you say you are going to do, which I think is huge for entrepreneur’s and business owners.”

– La Shawn Wells, Certified Life Coach
