Becky is a caring and astute coach, whose wisdom and counsel have jettisoned me toward my desired goals.
I leave each session with a renewed sense of committment and a profound feeling of accomplishment. Personal change is never easy, but my work with Becky has resulted in what feels like effortless advances due to her sponsorship, creative recommendations and unequivocal championing of my goals. A number of my collegues and staff have noticed a difference in several of the areas we're working on. Feedback has been unsolicited, with no awareness of the fact that I'm working with a coach. My progress encourages moments of reflective thinking where I ask myself, "How did I ever manage without a coach?" She's a friend, confident and always in my court. Who would have thought change could be so rewarding... She's a delight!

Working with Becky is a lot of fun and really insightful.
As a coach myself, I am a bit critical of those who coach me. Becky has been refreshing and helpful. Each of our calls is non-judgmental, helpful and I am always left feeling energized and relaxed. Becky has helped me to both recognize and embrace the changes and steps needed for me to reach my big goals. Of all the coaches I have worked with over the years, Becky seems to really respect my unique person the most. It is truly a pleasure and very helpful to work with her.

The concepts and strategies I learned through my coaching sessions with Becky Castro ...
have remained a vital part of my action plan. Her words and motivations still ring in my head as I lay the groundwork to take my business to the next level. Becky’s ability to break things down into manageable tasks and checklists keeps goals, long-term and immediate, from becoming overwhelming. Also, Becky’s friendly, engaging and respectful style makes for an effortless coaching process—she makes pursuing goals fun and exciting. I look forward to scheduling coaching sessions with Becky again soon.

I feel very fortunate and grateful for being part of the CHI and BBI world and especially you, Becky...
The experience, resources and education have been tremendous, and I learn something new every time I access the material. I especially want you to know how much Dedee and I value the time we have spent with you, and the growth our business has experienced from it. We intimately trust you with our business and look forward to sharing our growth and success with you.

I hired my coach to increase sales and shorten our sales cycle...
Early on, Becky Castro asked me a question that completely shook me up.
In our CRM module as part of the ERP software we commercialize for service providers, we kept track of all notes and actions related to outgoing quotations. When Becky asked us information about lead conversion, we realized that we had no information at hand about leads for which no quotations were yet made. Also it was difficult to predict when and how many sales would be closed within specific time periods without going through all notes and actions related to quotations. Especially for a Sales Manager, this is not a very efficient way to follow up his sales team.
Becky’s “simple” question challenged us to rethink our CRM module completely.
As a result of this question, combined with all her tips about setting up multiple sales channels, the goals of each step in the sales process, … we managed to integrate the full sales process, starting from leads till closure or lost, so that all pertinent sales information could be obtained in seconds flat (3 clicks) as well as being more strategic about the objectives in each step of the sales cycle.
As Tony Robbins says, you can't get new results with old questions---and that is what you want your coach to do otherwise your business will stay the same.

I came to Becky with a dream; with her guidance we were able to establish a business structure and marketing strategies in just a few months.
It would have taken 6-8 months to gather all the information, assessment, and direction without her. I’ve never felt more organized, focused or productive in a new venture.
Becky pushes me to expand my marketing thoughts and business possibilities. She is intuitive, resourceful and has a keen sense for business development. The breadth and depth of her experience is evident in every meeting. As our business grows I can see where her experience will be even more valuable. As always, I look forward to my next coaching session with Becky.

Barry struggled during her first year as a Bacon & Wilson associate in the trusts and estates department.
“I was still learning the business of law, which you don’t necessarily learn in law school,” she says. In her second year, she hired a business coach---a practice-changing decision.
“One of the things I learned was to look at what I do that I value the most, and what I need in my day to make me as efficient and happy as possible,” Barry says. Working with her coach, Barry was able to restructure her work week, building in time for marketing, returning client phone calls, and handling expected emergencies. She developed tricks to force herself to focus on the most important tasks and do those first.
The impact on her practice was astronomical. “In one year, I increased the amount of money I brought into the firm by 31 times. It was absolutely outrageous,” Barry says.

I would like to say that prior to my coaching sessions with Becky, I had no idea what a session would entail.
I thought it would be more of a concrete job search. It has turned out to be quite the opposite. It is an indepth look into myself and how I tick. The introspective aspect is affirming, and has opened up a new dimension in my life. I find the coaching really up-lifting.
If there's a magic formula for getting unstuck, getting clear, moving forward, and succeeding wildly, Becky Castro has it.
I started working with her in the hopes of jumpstarting both my career and some personal projects. I saw movement almost immediately--and in the nine months since I've begun coaching with her, I've attained or exceeded almost all of the goals I could have imagined when I began. The interesting thing is that I don't quite exactly know how it happened. Becky isn't a drill instructor, and most of what we did didn't feel like work. Somehow, though, I found myself attaining all of the goals and tasks I identified with her--in some cases, things I'd meant to do for years. I was also shocked at the opportunities that seemed to appear for me as a result.
Finally, and most important to me, the success we aimed at was in line with my basic values, so everything I achieved was very meaningful to me. No empty victories here!

I opened up my last practice three years ago after working for a large law firm for years. I consulted with Becky during the decision making process of leaving the firm.
Becky was extremely thoughtful in her questions to me that led me to the conclusion that it was time to venture off on my own. Three years later, my practice is flourishing. I again consulted with Becky because I felt “Panicked” in the present economy that my practice would dry up despite that fact that business was still good for me. Becky again posed provocative questions, questions that caused me to make choices based on my own values, not outside expectations. I realized that I was already doing a fine job building my business and we focused on continuing its growth without getting “too big.” I learned from within myself when “Enough was enough” and that balancing my family life with a thriving law practice was my highest priority and indeed possible.
