Newport Beach, CA (PressExposure) June 11, 2012 -- The City of Costa Mesa recently hosted a business workshop to help their businesses adapt to this changing market and to successfully re-launch themselves in 2012. They joined other prominent cities as Newport Beach, Santa Ana, Buena Park and San Bernardino and partnered up with OPIS Network, the originators and facilitators of the innovative "helping 100 businesses for 100 days" program. Their goal is to teach the business community how to separate themselves from their competitors and more important, how to tap into the new world of "Social Commerce." This is the first time Costa Mesa has offered the program.
This 100 days program, which consists of four live classes and six teleseminars, was introduced by City Councilmember Wendy Leece, a strong advocate and supporter of small businesses and this program, who shared with the students, "I enjoyed every minute of the launch. This joint effort with Opis and the Costa Mesa Chamber of commerce is a creative step towards helping Costa Mesa's small businesses renew their vision for success. I'm excited to watch these businesses take off after completing the 100 Day program."
Many struggling business owners avoid reality until it is too late, or do not know where to turn for help. This free event allows them to seek guidance and be accountable to themselves along with their customers and employees. Costa Mesa and OPIS Network have developed this program to provide a blueprint for success and the tools to implement these business-changing steps.
If you would like to join the Helping 100 Businesses for 100 Days program, please contact Community Development Director Norm Bour for more information at (949) 495-6162.
Costa Mesa is the 8th largest city in Orange County with 113,000 residents and a prominent history along with being a significant business center with South Coast Plaza, The Performing Arts Center and many national company headquarters.
