Welcome and congratulations for taking the next step towards achieving your dreams. As a Coach, I enjoy being part of my clients' journey of self discovery. I help guide clients towards self sufficiency by exploring alternate career options in a safe environment. I also coach business owners, providing Rapid Impact Solutions to improve sales, efficiency and profits. I'm confident I can support you in a similar manner. Please take a few minutes to read about me and some of the experiences of my clients. Feel free to contact me at any time using my toll free number above. I look forward to working with you.
With over 30 years of business experience I have positively impacted dozens of businesses by helping them to grow. For example:
• Opened 23 offices for start-up franchise concept
• Launched custom publishing division for established magazine group
• Grew sales to over $10 million annually at start-up tech firm
Most recently I held the position of V.P. of Franchise Sales with TruePresence, an internet marketing franchise. During my tenure I coached hundreds of people that were seeking a lifestyle change and realize their goal of taking control of their time and income.
Now, as an E.source coach I can work with franchise seekers and assist them in exploring the 1000’s franchises rather than just one. Through coaching and education we identify the business that will help them reach their individual goals. Once in business, I continue to coach them to ensure that that their business is successful.
On the personal side, I am happily married to Steve Becker, and together we have four young adult children. Since they all live outside our home state, naturally travel is a big part of how I spend my free time. Daily exercise (yoga, Pilates, power-walking, hiking, biking and weight training) and reading help me keep sharp, and cooking and entertaining keep me happy as I continue on my journey of continuous self improvement.
Quotes that I live by:
• There’s no day but today!
• Everything happens for a reason!
I am thrilled to be associated with The Entrepreneur's Source and look forward to educating you about the franchise selection process and helping you to realize your dream of self-reliance and business ownership.
"Gayle is a tremendous resource for anyone who is job-hunting or considering a career change. Besides being delightful to work with, she is consistent in following up and providing the much-needed encouragement during the difficult times of a job search. When you work with Gayle, you know she is always thinking about you and how she can help."

Top Qualities: Great Results, Expert, Good Value
“When Gayle states that "Your success is our only business" she genuinely means it. She takes a sincere interest in her clients and continues her excellent level of support even after the official process is successfully completed.” Mike Haggerty October 13, 2010
“Gayle is extremely knowledgable of the general business climate and was very skilled in helping me drill down to my best choice of a new career. In a very brief period of time she actually knew more about what opportunity best suited me than I knew myself. After initially not finding a fit she told me so, rather force-feeding something just to make a deal. When my current opportunity presented itself months later she called me to tell me she had found the perfect situation for me, and indeed it is. She then even hooked me up with the perfect business partner. She has truly kept the best interests of her clients as her primary goal.” Jay Sweren October 14, 2010
In December of 2009 I was part of a large scale sales force reduction with a multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical company. I was ranked 5 out of 27 District Sales Managers, had excellent relationships with my direct reports, and a history of driving and developing a high performing team. With that being said once I was impacted by the reduction I felt that my time in big pharma should come to an end so I did not pursue other pharmaceutical companies. At that time I explored other related opportunities but was also put in contact with Gayle Becker to explore franchise ownership. My desire to work for myself was inhibited by my concerns with my immediate income and uncertainty in owning a business. It was however matched by my desire to never feel like I could have my career pulled out from underneath me. Gayle was able to meet with my wife and I at our convenience and develop a short term plan to identify possible franchises. Her follow up was excellent and through extensive research and probing she identified a home based franchise that fits my short term and long term financial plans. I highly recommend Gayle Becker as a business coach as she is effective at her craft and delivers results. Many of you that read this will have visceral anxiety to change and I cannot say it is unjustified. Gayle will help you understand the pros and cons of franchise ownership. By working with her you can make an informed decision without worrying about missing some of the critical questions and costs associated with this undertaking. Thank you Gayle for all of your hard work!
C. Williams, Maryland April 2010
“Dear Gayle, Just want to let you know how much I respect you and appreciate you both as coach and a friend. This experience has not only been very informative but quite revealing, invigorating, and surprising to say the least. I have learned more about myself then I even realized I knew. If that makes any sense but I have a feeling you know exactly what I mean. I do understand that this is a starting point. Infact, I honestly feel as though I've been reborn. I'm hopeful and very excited to see what the future holds for me both professionally and personally. Thanks for sharing your expertise, encouragement, and enthusiasm with me. I will most definitely keep in touch. It has been amazing working with you. Thanks for everything!

“Words really can’t describe the value I found with Gayle Becker but let me try: enthusiastic, caring, knowledgeable, insightful, personable, resourceful, and positive. I met Gayle as I was in a career transition after 20 years in corporate America. Gayle immediately related to my situation. She really helped me explore my interests and validate my direction to move into business ownership, holding my hand the entire way! The process was rewarding in ways that I probably have not yet realized. She has become a coach, a valuable network connection, and a friend. I highly recommend Gayle for anyone in career transition, looking for a business coach, or interested in franchise opportunities. You will not be disappointed!”
P. Haw November 11, 2009
"Attending your seminar illustrated that large businesses have some of the same difficulties that small businesses have, something I don't think most of us entrepreneurs really consider. That alone helps me to see that you can work equally well with large and small businesses.
And, I really liked your style of sharing personal experiences and examples to illustrate your points - it made the presentation very interesting."
Dawn Converse, BNI Director (following seminar: Rapid Impact Strategies for Business Growth February 25, 2009)
“I was introduced to Gayle as part of my career transition. In evaluating several small business ownership opportunities, I rapidly decided that TruePresence was a great fit for me as a result of Gayle's professional, knowledeable, and personable interactions. Her incredible level of energy, dynamic presentation abilities, and insight into the online marketing arena was a tremendous benefit and ultimate deciding factor for my decision. Gayle is a true professional and I'm fortunate to be working with her.” March 22, 2007
Edward MacMillan, VP - Customer Repair Center, NuVox Communications

Gayle combined a tremendous work ethic and positive attitude while truly caring about everyone that she worked with. I highly recommend Gayle. May 27, 2008

Gayle is an individual I can honestly describe as honest, trustworthy, dependable, and ready and available to go above and beyond to assist others. Gayle has amazing communication and organizational skills.
