Tell your story: Chamber member Wavelengths Recovery shares warm success STORY SUBMITTED BY WARREN BOYD, WAVELENGTHS RECOVERY

Economic Forum showcases emerging markets and growing opportunities

The Economic Forum brought together speakers in varying fields such as economics, technology, tourism, and action sports on April 10 in the Golden West College main theater. Presented by the Huntington Beach Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by The Boeing Company, this event offered insight to business owners and residents on how to capitalize on transient economies we find in Huntington Beach. Golden West College President Tim McGrath welcomed guests with the question, “Is there a better place in this state than being on a college campus to talk about new ideas?” The event’s emcee described the morning’s speakers as ‘visionary’ as he introduced the first panel, moderated by Dan Bryan, Ed.D., Director of Student Services at Huntington Beach Union High School District. The panel highlighted growing fields of expertise, opportunities regarding em-

ployee training and re-training, and areas of youth education focusing on technology and engineering. Featured panelists represented the 3D printing, robotics education, and space engineering fields. Ken Watson, representing Raise3D Technologies as its higher education and key accounts manager, described himself as having a true passion for technology and how 3D printing will revolutionize education and manufacturing. Watson was joined by Marcos Cabrera, Head of Robotics for Edison High School, and Linda Mai, Legal Counsel for Rocket Lab. Over the last decade, Cabrera has developed after school technology and robotics programs at Edison High School in addition to teaching chemistry, life science, biology and earth science. Cabrera’s insight gave the attendees the reminder that the positions high school students will fill in their adulthood have See FORUM - Page 4

Every good business owner knows there are metrics for measuring success. Most often when we think along those lines, we immediately go to the bottom line in our profit and loss statements to determine the value and productivity of our company. The deficiency in this line of thinking is that it fails to adequately measure the outcome that our product or service provides to our clients, which I believe is central to creating a successful business. Additionally, it fails to allow your employees to see value in their work or measure your reputation within your industry. As the Owner and CEO of Wavelengths Recovery, I am in the business of salvaging lives. My passionate team of employees work diligently to help our clients achieve and maintain sobriety by overcoming their addiction to the drugs and alcohol that demonize them. Every client has a unique story to tell and a treatment plan that fits their particular See SUCCESS - Page 8

not been invented yet, and even the position he holds now did not exist five years ago. He further discussed the importance of design in technology and robotics development, citing the human tendency to not just buy items for their functionality, but also those that ‘look beautiful.’ “Being a graphics guy, I kind of like the merger of technology and art,” Iorfino said as he thanked the technology panel and welcomed the second panel moderator. “It’s pretty slick for what I do.” The tourism panel hosted representatives from CBRE Hotels, Visit Huntington Beach, Visit Anaheim, and D.J.M. Capital partners. Each

panelist offered individualized insight to the value of tourism, estimating the economic impact of travel, and how Orange County performs in comparison to the nation more broadly with tourism. According to Bruce Baltin, Managing Director for CBRE Hotels, Orange County sits at about 80 percent occupancy, which is substantially higher than the national average. He also stated that despite overarching concern regarding the impact of short-term rentals such as Airbnb, the service is showing no signs of greatly hindering hotel occupancy. Keynote speaker and Director of the Anderson Center for Economic Research at

Chapman University Dr. Raymond Sfeir provided the economic forecast with a promising prediction. “We are not expecting a recession in 2019,” Sfeir said to the audience during his presentation. “And many economists don’t expect one in 2020 either.” The audience overall found the forum to be a good source of information for them moving foward. “Huge insights today,” Beth Hambelton excitedly said, representing one of the event sponsors MemorialCare Orange Coast Medical Center. “So, I’m still processing it!” Other attendees spoke to the opportunities created with the information disbursed during the forum. “The speakers really gave us an opportunity for something

that we can develop for the future for the city of Huntington Beach,” Ron Pascual said, representing the Orange County Association of Realtors. A committee working collaboratively with the Chamber of Commerce designed the program and assisted with speaker outreach. “The success of the event is in huge part due to the work of the committee,” Stephanie Gorman said on behalf of the Chamber of Commerce. “This is our first event since we brought back committees and the value is incalculable.” To participate in next year’s Economic Forum planning committee, contact the chamber office by email at hbchamber@hbcoc.com.

Noes: Dahle (R-Bieber), Mathis (RVisalia), Melendez (R-Lake Elsinore). Tax on Opioids AB 1468 (McCarty; D-Sacramento/ Gallagher; R-Yuba City) unfairly imposes an excise tax on opioid distributors in California, which will increase their costs and force them to adopt measures that include reducing workforce and increasing drug prices for ill patients who need these medications the most, in order to

fund drug prevention and rehabilitation programs that will benefit all of California. The bill will impose a $100 million excise tax on manufacturers and wholesalers that distribute or sell opioid medications in California. Each manufacturer and wholesaler would be required to report to the California Department of Public Health all opioid medication sold or distributed during a given fiscal year. Based on the reported information, the department would then calculate the manufacturer’s or distributor’s ratable share, which is the individual portion of the collective sum of $100 million they will be required to pay that year. While the CalChamber agrees that opioid abuse is a significant problem, any tax increase should be broad-based and shared by all so that the financial burden is mitigated.

need. Unfortunately for me, I sometimes get caught up in the need to negotiate payer rates with insurance companies, pay vendor invoices, hire qualified employees, and navigate the maze of local, state, and federal regulations that govern my industry. It can be dizzying at times, and quite frankly, it keeps me from the things that motivated me to start my business in the first place. So, every once in a while, I have to remind myself to step away from my spreadsheets to find my true success and reenergize my entrepreneurial passion. Even better yet, there are times when my business success finds me, and I’m reminded of our value beyond our bottom line. One such reminder recently found me in the form of a letter and photo from a former client, I’ll call her “Jane”. Her short but poignant note caused me to pause and reflect on the essence of my business and the team that worked diligently to get Jane on a path to sobriety. More importantly, the outcomes of her life since finding sobriety. This young expectant mother came to Wavelengths Recovery filled with trauma, mired in regret and totally trapped in her addiction to drugs. For many in my industry, the challenge of treating a drug addicted-expectant mother is a huge red flag because the liability for treating a pregnant high-risk mother is immense. However; here at Wavelengths Recovery, we don’t live in our fears and we embrace the challenges placed before us. With that mindset we welcomed Jane

by the Wavelengths team and a commitment from Jane. Finally, after 3 months of intensive treatment she walked out of our treatment center healthy, happy and ready to take on the challenges of life and motherhood. As with many things in my business, we move on to the next task at hand, which for me meant a host of new clients who also needed our undivided attention. My team kept in contact with Jane through our alumni program, but our daily interactions had ended. And then one day, quite unexpectedly, I received a note and a picture from Jane. She had maintained her sobriety for 9 months and her baby boy was born healthy and drug free. She thanked the staff for giving her a second chance in life and stated in no uncertain terms that she and her son would not be alive today if not for Wavelengths. Attached to the note was a photo of her baby boy in a “onesie” with a Wavelengths logo emblazoned on the front. I can’t begin to tell you how impactful Jane’s short note and photo was for both me and our entire Wavelengths family. Not only had we helped to salvage a life, but we also, God willing, helped to end the cycle of drug addiction that is often passed down through generations. Jane’s success was our success and her smiling baby photo validated all that our business had worked for throughout the year. We

www.hbchamber.com

had made a difference! So as the April tax deadline approaches, every Huntington Beach business owner will go through the annual ritual of meeting with their accountant and itemizing their profits and losses. I have yet to complete that process, but I know this: No matter what my accountant tells

me, I already know I’ve had a successful year at Wavelengths and my bottom line has nothing to do with it. I ask each of you to remember Jane’s lesson. Each of us as business owners can make a difference with the products we sell or the services we provide. Whether we’re making someone’s vacation memorable or providing goods that help them get through the day, we can each make an impact. Certainly, turning a profit is important, but if you find your success in the passions that drove you to open your business, the profits will most certainly follow, and you will find fulfillment that money just can’t buy.

CalChamber launches #RespectWorks campaign to ensure harrassment free workplaces

The California Chamber of Commerce this week kicked off #RespectWorks, a campaign joined by a large and growing list of flagship California companies pledging to promote inclusiveness and prevent harassment in their workplaces. “Harassment has no place in our workplaces,” said CalChamber President Allan Zaremberg. “Joining #RespectWorks demonstrates an employer’s solid commitment to their workers and the success of their company. “Harassment-free workplaces have higher retention rates, recruit and hire the most qualified workers and

are more productive and successful.” Early Supporters So far, more than two dozen early signers have joined the #RespectWorks effort, pledging to use proven, best practices to prevent harassment. The list of early supporters includes, among others: • Blue Diamond Growers; • Gordon Biersch Brewing Company; • Systems Integrated; • Evans Hotels; • Ernst & Young; • Albertsons Companies; • Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP; • Lucas Public Affairs;

• •

Sacramento River Cats; Wilcox, Miller & Nelson; • AT&T; • Hornblower Cruises & Events; • OUTSOURCE Consulting Services. • #RespectWorks Resources A key component of the effort is the ability of companies to have free access to several anti-harassment resources and a new human resourcesrelated tip each month. The monthly tip will focus on practical aspects of creating workplaces free from abusive conduct. #RespectWorks resources can be found at respectworks. calchamber.com. They include the following: • Sample harassment discrimination and retaliation prevention policy; • Harassment prevention policy implementation checklist; • #RespectWorks poster suitable for display in the office environment; and • Tip of the month (the first tip provides details about California’s new mandatory sexual harassment and abusive conduct prevention training for both supervisors and employees

that must be completed by January 1, 2020).

Employers Embrace Effort “#RespectWorks is an important campaign to remind both employers and employees the importance of maintaining workplaces that are both inclusive and free from harassment. I challenge all California employers to join the impressive list of companies supporting this effort and help drive us all to be more successful,” said Mark Jansen, president and chief executive officer, Blue Diamond Growers. “All workers deserve and should expect to have workplaces that are free from harassment. Gordon Biersch is committed to this goal for our company. We are a strong supporter of CalChamber’s #RespectWorks movement,” said Dan Gordon, co-founder and chief operating officer, Gordon Biersch Brewing Company.
