Here's what's included in BOSS
1- THE RIGHT BUSINESS RIGHT LIFE ROADMAP with self-paced step-by-step guidance. This is the start-a-Business Success Formula, business coach Patricia Bottero created from over 30 years in the trenches of small business entrepreneurship and to coach her clients one on one in starting a business successfully.
Each of the 4 stages of the roadmap includes several modules representing the milestones of the roadmap. This means the roadmap includes on-demand lessons that can be completed in 4 to 8 months or longer depending on your target date to launch your business and the type of business you pick.
Each week a new module with several lessons is released.
There are no deadlines to complete the roadmap, only those you set for yourself. This means that, depending on your pace, in as little as 4 to 12 months you could have researched, vetted, planned, and be ready to launch your new business.
2- GROUP COACHING Each month we will have a Group Coaching Session to discuss your progress, your findings, and your questions. There will be bonus group coaching sessions added from time to time based on demand. Market value > $800/ month.
3 - A PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP, free for the members of BOSS, exclusive to the members of OPEN FOR BUSINESS. This is where you will connect with other members, exchange ideas, ask clarifying questions, and support each other. This is also where we have live expert interviews.
4- MARKET RESOURCES added monthly:
- Market Resources & Referrals.
- Business Experts Interviews and Advice.
- Entrepreneurs' Mindset, and Health Resources.
In Stage 1 we research business(es) and sectors of industry.
There are thousands of viable business ideas in the world but only a few are actually the right fit. Here we explore the various paths to business ownership and how to identify the most ideal one for you. We also discuss several techniques to gain clarity on your vision of a life you will love.
In Stage 2 we vet the business or idea that you have selected to start, buy or develop is economically viable.
This is about getting into your choice of a business with your eyes wide open. Exercise due diligence for a new independent startup that you might want to launch, or for your acquisition of a business that is for sale, or for a turnkey concept such as a franchise or a business opportunity that you might want to develop.
In stage 3 we plan your business, for strategy, for funding and for growth.
Now that you have a fairly good idea of the business or business type that you want to launch, it is time to do some planning and projecting. We examine several business tools to project and plan your success including identifying the key internal and external areas of influence and preparing your business plan for funding and for growth strategy.
In stage 4 we identify the tactical steps to launch and operate your business.
Congratulations! You have picked the right business and are ready to cut the red ribbon. But wait! Before your Grand Opening, there are gazillion steps that need your attention: business entity, insurance, bookkeeping, bank, permits, regulations, contracts, etc. This session identifies the tactical steps to start your business on its best administrative foot. We also strategize your launch to maximize visibility.
A library of market resources, lists, and referrals. Perhaps you need to speak to an SBA loan expert, or someone who can help you understand how to self-fund your business with a Roll-over-for Business Start-up (ROBS). Maybe you need to interview a few attorneys for your contracts. Or perhaps after going through Stage 1 of the Roadmap you have decided that buying a business is the best path for you and you are looking for a broker to buy a business. This is where we bring the market of small business professionals to you.
A variety of business professionals are invited each month to share their expertise. You might meet attorneys, CPAs, Bookkeepers, Brokers, Marketing experts, Social Media Experts, public relations experts, Insurance experts, SBA experts bankers, etc.
MONTHLY GROUP COACHING
Each month we meet to discuss our progress answer questions and share our experience.
In mastermind fashion, each attendee will have the option (not an obligation) to be on an 8- 10 minute "hot seat" and share their challenges and questions with the group who in turn will contribute to helping.
If no one requests a hot seat, we will discuss the last month's stage, modules, and lessons, share questions, comments, and progress.
PRIVATE FACEBOOK GROUP

Your Start-a-Business Coach at BOSS
Patricia Bottero St-Jean, MBA
Hey, there, Fellow Freedom Seeker!
For a decade, I have been mentoring and consulting with owners of independent businesses, franchises, and buyers/sellers of for-sale businesses. It was so eye-opening that it led me to realize one thing: 9 out of 10 new business owners don't research adequately and don't pre-plan the launch of their new business before they start it. Consequently, the majority fail or, at best, are miserable with their business. Then I wondered, what's the point of getting into a business if it doesn't cater to a life you love?
This led to the creation of OPEN FOR BUSINESS which provides coaching services, online courses, and market resources to aspiring business owners who want to build a life that prioritizes their time based on who and what matters the most to them with a business they own as the vehicle to that life. The fundamental framework of OPEN FOR BUSINESS is a roadmap titled "The Right Business Right Life". It is a step-by-step formula that helps entrepreneurs research, vet, plan, and launch their most viable venture based on their priorities. This early-stage research is the most critical and often the most overlooked stage of the entrepreneurial journey.
Today I am introducing BOSS - The Business Owners Success Society. I created BOSS exclusively for entrepreneurs and soon-to-become owners as a low-cost, self-paced option that guides them before they jump into starting any type of business or buying one. With BOSS, you have access to the early-stage business ownership methodology I use for my private coaching clients and at a fraction of the price.
BOSS is a step-by-step self-paced membership that guides you to:
Avoid costly mistakes.
Decide on the best business or idea for you.
Set your success on a solid foundation.
Strategize your business growth.
Save you tremendous time, great sums, and energy.
Build a life you love with that business.
Most importantly, what you invest in yourself with BOSS is your best Return On Investment! The knowledge and resources that are shared with you through BOSS will help you make better decisions throughout your entire entrepreneurial career.
I'm thrilled to invite you to join as one of the first 20 Founding Members of BOSS. As a Founding Member, you have access to BOSS at special pricing that will never increase for you while you remain a member. You can count on BOSS as your long-term virtual coach supporting you in your entrepreneurial journey.
Cheers to Building a Life you Love!

WHAT THESE ENTREPRENEURS SAY ABOUT WORKING WITH
PATRICIA BOTTERO & OPEN FOR BUSINESS
Absentee Business Owner, Perfect Water, LLC.
"Patricia has a lot of experience with small business ownership and the process involved with getting your own company up and running. I have worked with her throughout the last year to secure my first business purchase. Her method consists of finding the right business based on your personality and long term goals and she works hard to find the right opportunities for you. Working with Patricia is great for those of you who have no formal education in business (I did not). Transitioning into business ownership requires goal setting and accountability to get through each step in the process. Patricia provides this accountability along with guidance and support as issues come up. Thanks again for your help Patricia."
Energy Digital Marketing
"After years in the corporate world it was time for a change and I felt trapped. Fortunately I met Patricia who has been my professional coach and the steady “hand on the tiller” guiding me to a professional rebirth through franchising. She used time and expertise to understand my situation and strengths and match me to an opportunity that I love without any pressure to take action on her behalf. Her nurturing counsel helped make the decision to start my own consulting business simple. Patricia’s business acumen is first rate which is proving important as she still provides coaching as I grow my business."
"I highly recommend Patricia’s program, Right Business Right Life, along with her coaching services, to anyone who wants to start a business. Her program offers so much value and so many resources. But perhaps the greatest resources is Patricia herself. With over 30 years as a business owner, she brings to the table insights and hard-won lessons gained through her own experience. The conversations with her through the coaching sessions helped me clarify what it is I really want out of my business: In my case, it is an online business that I can develop from home, while working around my family life. Patricia’s unique approach to business, combined with her detailed process of research and discovery, truly can help you find your right business and your right life."
Bonnie Li CPA MBA,
Owner - Padgett Accounting
"Patricia helped me create my accounting firm Padgett in Mountain View from zero. She provided me very practical, patient and professional ways to analyze different business models and my personalities to finalize my choice that best suitable for me. Without her help, I wouldn't run my business this smoothly. I have been following her seminars and events. Every time, there's always an idea enlighten me that helps me running my business. I highly recommend Patricia who will provide you tailored and best business learning experience."
International Real Estate Developer, Sweden
"Patricia is a great business coach for identifying and recommending the right suitable business for one. She delivers a strong comfort and security to work with with the extra services like lawyers and other services which one can need when moving. I highly recommend Patricia to anyone!"
Owner, The Well-Being Group
"An extraordinary and happy piece of serendipity led us to Patricia Bottero St-Jean when we first moved to Santa Barbara. Having sold our business of 16 years, we were looking for new investment opportunities and new adventures. On being introduced to Patricia, whose passion and mission is exactly to help people find business opportunities tailored to their needs and skill sets, we started to work with her to find our new business....we are both extremely grateful and indebted to her for her time, expertise and commitment to our future success and happiness."
