An award-winning business journalist and entrepreneur reveals critical insights and the ‘secret sauce’ for success shared by some of America’s most respected business leaders

The Irvine Micropreneur Program, a webinar series sponsored by the Irvine (CA) Chamber of Commerce, hosts “Business Lessons From the Best: What I learned from top CEOs & entrepreneurs” by journalist and entrepreneur Antonio Neves on Thursday, September 27th 2012 at noon PDT. The webinar will be presented in partnership with Business on Main, an online destination for small-business leaders, sponsored by Sprint in collaboration with MSN.

Neves also served as host of Business on Main’s “Cool Runnings,” a Web series profiling companies large and small that have mastered critical challenges facing businesses today. “Many of the companies we've featured in ‘Cool Runnings’ fought through financial hardships, a changing marketplace and a sour economy. But giving up simply wasn’t an option. These innovative leaders identified opportunities to adapt and grow their businesses—and come out stronger,” said Neves.

He brings their perspectives to this webinar, which aims to help aspiring and existing entrepreneurs learn from the failures and successes of business leaders before them—including Tony Hsieh of Zappos, Chip Conley of Joie de Vivre, and Chris Zane of Zane’s Cycles—who have built companies from the ground up in the best and worst of times. Neves offers insights from these CEOs and entrepreneurs when answering questions like:

  •     How do you win over customers in a crowded online marketplace?
  •     Why do some new business ventures go viral while others struggle for attention?
  •     What makes customer service so different in today’s environment?

The free live webinar airs Thursday, September 27th 2012 from noon until 1:00pm PDT. Attendees must have an Internet connection and computer audio or a separate phone connection. Login instructions for the webinar are available on the Irvine Micropreneur Program website at Following his presentation, Neves will answer attendees’ specific questions in a live Q&A session.

An award-winning business journalist, Antonio Neves is a regular columnist for Business on Main and host of its Web series “Cool Runnings,” produced in conjunction with NBC. He is also the founder of THINQACTION, where he partners with young professionals to produce exceptional results in their careers. Neves began his career co-hosting Nickelodeon’s hit show “U-Pick Live,” and has worked with E! News, PBS, BET Networks and Advertising Age.
