Are there certain methods that always go with business objects?

The methods are tied into the functionality required of the Business Object. Therefore they can be radically different.

A "business" object is something that contains business logic.
So, for example, if you have an application that trades stocks you might have an object that is called "TheMarket" and it could have a method called "MarketOpen()" which returns a boolean indicating if wall street is accepting orders at the moment.
I guess my short answer is no, there are not methods which always go with business objects.
