 Meet Your Presenter


Patricia Bottero believes that owning a business that fits us is the ultimate vehicle to a life that suits us.

She is a small business enthusiast, a freedom seeker, a pragmatic optimist, and an avid hiker and swimmer. From her experience, she finds that the most rewarding path to freedom, financially and personally, is small business entrepreneurship. Her company, OPEN FOR BUSINESS, provides education, coaching, market resources, and connections to individuals who want to create a business or buy one.

Bottero's entrepreneurial journey began at 26 when she created her first small business in the Bay Area, where she still resides. That small business grew to multi-million dollars while employing a team of forty. In the process, she earned the freedom and flexibility to be a parent on her own terms. From her expensive blunders as much as from her victories in the trenches of America's Main Street business and digital enterprise, she acquired comprehensive small to midsize business (SMB) expertise, which she loves to share with soon-to-be business owners.

With OPEN FOR BUSINESS, her mission is to support aspiring entrepreneurs in crafting their life by design with a business they own. When she is not supporting aspiring business owners, you'll find Bottero roaming the local trails, the Sierra Nevada, and other glorious mountains and alpine lakes the world over.
