Your Start-a-Business Coach at BOSS

 Patricia Bottero


I am Patricia.
For the last decade, I've consulted 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? This led to the creation of my company OPEN FOR BUSINESS which provides coaching services, online courses, market resources, and now BOSS - Business Owners Success Society. I created BOSS exclusively for entrepreneurs and soon-to-be owners to guide them before they jump into starting any type of business or buying one.  With BOSS, you now have access to the early-stage business ownership methodology I use for my private coaching clients at a low-cost membership subscription. "The Right Business Right Life Roadmap" is OPEN FOR BUSINESS' fundamental step-by-step formula that helps entrepreneurs research, vet, plan, and launch their most viable venture. This early research is the most critical and often the most overlooked stage of the entrepreneurial journey. 

By joining  BOSS you get access to the "Right Business Right Life Roadmap", in 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 a Founding Member 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,  in addition to many bonuses. You can count on BOSS as your long-term virtual coach to support you in your entrepreneurial journey.

Cheers to Building a Life you Love!

This is about getting into your choice of a business with your eyes wide open.

In stage 3 we plan your business, for strategy, for funding if needed, 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.

 Congratulations! You have picked the right business for you and are ready to cut the red ribbon. But wait!

Benjamin Soukup

Mechanical Engineer.

Absentee Model 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."

Andrew Peters


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."


Krista Valdonidos

Digital Marketer.

"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

"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."

Brian Cicek
