How Newport Beach Is Helping Their Small Business Community

Newport Beach, CA (PressExposure) January 04, 2012 -- The City of Newport Beach will be providing a business workshop to help all their businesses adapt to this changing market and to successfully re-launch themselves in 2012. By partnering 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 second consecutive year that this program has been offered due to such an overwhelming response in 2011.

This 100 days program, which consists of four live classes and six teleseminars, will kick off on January 21, 2012 at the Oasis Senior Center in Corona del Mar and will include many dignitaries from the public and private sector. It is a collaborative partnership with the City, the Build as One Foundation, the Corona del mar Chamber of Commerce, and the PATCH on-line newspaper sites.

Last year the new Mayor of Newport Beach greeted the 250+ attendees on behalf of the city along with most of the city council and a similar show of support is expected in this sequel.

Many struggling business owners avoid reality until it is too late, or do not know where to turn. This free event allows them to seek guidance and be accountable to themselves along with their customers and employees. Advice is not always easy to come by, but the City of Newport Beach and OPIS Network have developed this program to provide a blueprint for success and the tools to implement these business-changing steps.

Helping 100 Businesses for 100 Days will be held on Saturday, January 21 from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Oasis Senior Center located at 801 Narcissus Ave, CdM, CA 92625. Admission is free for the workshop but reservations are required to: or by calling (949) 371-5811.
