Making Connections

The New Year has started. Learn about your health and the health of your website at this month’s Jewish business networking groups.
The Orange County Jewish community has two of such groups.
The Jewish Business Network (JBN) meets every month on the first Tuesday at noon, at the Samueli Jewish Campus in Irvine.  This group is a very friendly, informal forum where business and professional people can network with and meet others in the Orange County Jewish Community.  The purpose of the group is threefold: to promote one’s business and make referrals to other members, to learn important information from each month’s featured speaker and to make new friends.
Cost is $18 for a kosher, catered lunch, by Blueberry Hill Catering.  There is a special discounted annual membership rate, with associated benefits.  Reservations are a must by the prior Monday at 10 a.m.  Register on www.meetup.com (search jewish business network, in Orange County, to register) or at (949) 250-9990 or at jwwilk@cox.net.
On Tuesday, October 4, JBN’s featured speaker is: Dr. Alan Sosin, director of The Institute for Progressive Medicine in Irvine.  Dr. Sosin is a naturopathic M.D., meaning that he is able to prescribe drugs when necessary; however, he also is able to recommend natural remedies and supplements that often work without resorting to drugs.  Dr. Sosin spoke to the group several years ago and was very well received.  His presentation offers many practical and beneficial suggestions for maintaining good health and dealing with a variety of conditions.
Jewish Business Connections (JBC) of South OC meets on the first Wednesday of every month at Chabad Jewish Center of Mission Viejo, 24041 Marguerite Pkwy, Mission Viejo.  Join the group to schmooze, learn from the business experts, find new opportunities and make great business connections, network within a safe and friendly community and grow your business.  The group offers a speaker, networking circles and a talk by Rabbi Zalman Marcus on the kabbalah of business. Light refreshments are served.
On October 5 at 6 p.m., there will be a short business presentation: Six Tactics to Optimize your Website for First Page Ranking on Search Engines.  Participants will learn how to get their websites listed on the front page of Google, Yahoo and BING, as well as other search engines and directories.  The speaker, Dennis Backer, is the owner of SeoExcell, a provider of search engine optimization (SEO) services for e-commerce websites.
The cost is $10 with a special member rate available.  RSVP on meetup.com or get on the mailing list by contacting Alexandra L. Kaplan, MBA, SPHR, Business Consltant, Mark Kamin and Associates, at (310)922-6871 or a.kaplan@mka-world.com.
