Book A Strategy Call

Let's chat about your very first and crucial step as aspiring entrepreneur. I invite you to connect and have an initial strategy call at no cost or obligation to you. Together let’s draft your possible roadmap to the rewarding world of business ownership. I will share possibilities on how you might build your dream of being your own boss. At the very least, you will leave our discussion with a plan of action and recommendations for your next steps.


 “Our mission is to advise entrepreneurs in strategizing business ownership while leveraging their strengths, in alignment with their goals in Lifestyle, Income, Freedom and Equity, and to optimize their success for the life of their business.”

We help you Open the RIGHT Business for YOU, anywhere in the United States through our unique methodology and by :

  • Identifying & leveraging your strengths.
  • Getting clarity on your goals in Lifestyle, Income, Freedom and Equity (L.I.F.E.)
  • Researching business models in alignment with your strengths & your goals.
  • Advising you in vetting new business ideas.
  • Mentoring you in growing and scaling your business.

OPEN FOR BUSINESS is a boutique agency specializing in small to midsize business research, planning and growth.  I am Patricia Bottero St-Jean, Founder and International Business Advisor and Speaker on Small & Midsize Business (SMB) Ownership. I started the company as I have found that with most businesses that fail, many do because in the first place the owners, entrepreneurs picked or were sold the wrong business for them or they assumed they could do everything on their own and didn’t team-up with expert help.  When I began my entrepreneurial journey, over 30 years ago, I often wished that a blueprint, a roadmap or “a someone”, could guide me through the exciting but often treacherous path that I had chosen: the path to self-sufficiency and empowerment via business ownership.

At OPEN FOR BUSINESS, our unique approach is to first take a high level view of various possible routes to business, and to guide aspiring entrepreneurs to objectively identify the most viable opportunities for them. Together we evaluate:
– Startup models from a new idea.
– Turnkey franchises/business opportunity concepts.
– Acquisition of established businesses that are for resale.
– Once your are “open for business”, we stand with you in growing and scaling by discussing your challenges either weekly or monthly through our mentorship program.

I invite you to book a no cost Strategy Call to discuss how business ownership might be a viable vehicle to build a life of your own design. If you already own a business, we’ll examine a plan to grow your business so that it serves you, your family and your life.

Yours in Lifestyle, Income, Freedom, Equity (L.I.F.E.) Success,
Patricia Bottero St-Jean, MBA
