Your initial conversation with other members is about creating rapport and learning about one other’s practice, not about eliciting business from them. Try asking these questions:

  • How did you get started in the field?
  • What do you like best about what you do?
  • What goals do you have for your practice?
  • What are some of the biggest challenges for your practice?
  • Why did you choose your specific category?
  • Where else do you usually network?
  • How do you usually get referrals?
  • Why did you join the Therapist Network?
  • How can I help you?
  • Are there specific people you are looking to meet?
  • What is your ideal client?
