Andrew Peters
Product and Digital Marketing Consultant April 23, 2018.
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.
Alejandra Breach
Hotel Sales and Marketing Specialist March 3, 2018
I’ve known Patricia for more than 9 years. First as a client in a previous job; she was very supportive, friendly and great to work with. Years passed, and when I heard she was coaching, I knew she would do an amazing job helping others. When the need came for me to figure out what to do with my professional life, I immediately thought of her, and with no regrets. The whole process went very smoothly, she was Never pushing to rush into a decision; with her experience and her insightfulness she came up with businesses that I was potentially interested and at the end I became a business owner! Thank you Patricia!! 🙂
Larry Tessler
SCORE Counselor/Mentor
February 18, 2018
Ms. Bottero St-Jean’s workshop on strategizing ownership using one’s own needs for a particular lifestyle, for income, for flexibility in one’s daily activities and for the equity one might develop from operating one’s own business was both insightful and actionable for the workshop participants. The participants left feeling they now had a better grasp on just what owning their own business might mean for their lives and also it provided them with the perspectives needed to decide whether to go forward to become a business owner or not. We at SCORE felt this workshop was so important that we will invite her back for an encore.
