Leads are typically generated in three ways:

  2. Potential clients contact FCG using our website contact form.  Leads are passed to the best qualified members or in some cases multiple members for their varied expertise.
  3. Our members pass many leads along every month to other members.  They also frequently build teams for projects with other members to aid in providing their client a more diversified offering.
