Start the RIGHT Business for You!

For a Life with Greater Income and Freedom

Explore The Right Business for the Right Life

Hi! I'm Patricia Bottero St-Jean, 
Your Start-a-Business Coach.

For many, starting a business is a daunting endeavor. Although the majority of US employees are disengaged in their work they could be very successful as business owners. Yet most are so afraid to get into business for themselves that they waste their life in jobs that limit their personal and financial growth.  Others, in fact, 32 million business owners in the US, choose the path of self-sufficiency and freedom. 

What if you started a business with the confidence that you can, at minimum, replace your employee income while also building a better life for yourself and your family? What if you could double, triple, or even 10x your income while enjoying greater freedom?

All it takes is one simple risk-free first step: exploring what starting (or buying) a business could mean for you, without any large commitment of time and money and without quitting your job... yet. 

I specialize in coaching aspiring entrepreneurs with early-stage research, vetting, planning before they jump into launching any type of business. When we work together our first priority is to vet the most viable business for you, the right business that:

  • Capitalizes on your strengths - with absolute clarity on what they are.

  • Is fueled by your purpose and your big why.

  • Is in alignment with your vision of your ideal life. 

  • Is economically viable.

I've spent the past 30 + years in the trenches of America's Main Street business where I coached owners of all types of businesses and sectors of industry: micro-businesses with one sole owner/operator, businesses with employees, full-time businesses, absentee ownerships, independent businesses, franchisees, independent businesses scaling as franchisors, etc. In the process, I've witnessed extraordinary successes but also epic failures.  Some entrepreneurs build beautiful lives with their businesses while others inadvertently pick a path of misery, chaos, and regrets. Because most new owners don't know what they don't know, they end up choosing the path of trial and error: the hardest way.

Throughout my career, I have observed that 99% of failed businesses are the outcomes of inadequate research and planning which should be done before committing to a business or a business idea. This is why I developed a methodology to help you avoid costly mistakes and start your business on a rock-solid foundation. It is titled  RIGHT BUSINESS RIGHT LIFE, a four-stage Business Plan & Roadmap to fail-proof your business before you invest great sums.

Whether you already have an idea for a business, or you are just considering a transition to getting in business for yourself, let me help you secure the path to greater freedom and income. Click below to explore how you can get you to a life you love with a solid business you own.

Cheers to a life you love!


How I help you succeed in business

I support you from the early stage research to the launch of your business with the goal of building it on a solid foundation so that you'll avoid costly mistakes and succeed faster.


You are in the right place if you are considering getting into a business from an idea you want to launch or by buying a business. It could be a brick & mortar, a mobile, a virtual business, and it could also be a full-time, part-time,  absentee business or a side-gig while keeping your job. When starting any business there are two approaches: figuring it out on your own by trial and error or leveraging other people's experience. The trial-and-error approach is always more costly, takes longer, and is riskier. 
I invite you to book a call to discuss your next steps.
