At the Chamber, we understand running a small business can be extraordinarily challenging. To help with those challenges, we created the Small Business Resource Center. Whether you’re a budding entrepreneur or a seasoned pro, our goal is for you to gain the skills and resources you need to take your business to the next level and stay competitive within a rapidly changing marketplace. Much of this is made possible through a partnership with Wells Fargo and their Wells Fargo Works for Small Business program. For more information on what is available check out the video below.
New & Noteworthy
There is no getting around the fact that the world is trending towards a cashless society and today, purchases made within the US are only about 55 percent cash. If you’re not up-to-speed on the myriad of ways that customers can submit payments, it may be time to call a professional.
Small business owners have the incredible power to foster innovation, but when you’re caught up in the daily tasks of running a business, it can be hard to separate yourself from those activities to consider new ideas and spark growth. Learn how to take your business to the next level by embracing an innovation mindset.

There’s no doubt that money and time are valuable resources for your business. Neither should be wasted when it comes to marketing your business. Put both to good use by investing them in efforts that will drive new sales and brand awareness.
Live Well @ Work Toolkit
Recognizing that small and medium-size businesses may have limited resources to support workplace wellness initiatives, the County of San Diego Health & Human Services Agency has partnered with the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce, North San Diego Business Chamber, and South County Economic Development Council to develop a simple, but effective, resource to benefit local businesses. Together, we created the LIVE WELL @ WORK Worksite Wellness Toolkit For Small and Medium-Size Businesses designed to offer easy, evidence-based approaches to employee health that can be implemented at low or no cost to employers.
Maureen Orey, President of the Workplace Learning and Performance Group, has over twenty-five years of experience in the fields of management, training, human resources, diversity and leadership development. Through professional development workshops at the Chamber, Ms. Orey provides management and training development consulting to Chamber members to ensure small business owners can manage their business with a clear vision for their future.
