Riding thru Cancer

Posted in electric bikes on May 30, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

When yoga instructor Donna Mogilski was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer, she knew immediately what to do.  She grabbed her Pedego Electric Bike and decided to ride right thru it.  Doubling the amount of miles she rode every day (except for the day of and day after chemo). Pushing her body with some serious daily exercise while calming her anxiety and putting herself in a positive state of mind.  Chanting all along the way “remove all obstacles in my way”.  “It’s what saved my life,” says Donna. “My ebike saved my life. It was the catalyst for my recovery”. 

Hear the amazing story of one woman on two wheels who rode right thru her cancer, using a holistic approach of mind, body and spirit that’s allowed her to beat this deadly disease and be declared officially cancer free (one year later). Thanks to her taking a positive path.  Driven by her “never say die” determination and spirit.  With a big boost from her Pedego Electric Bike. That’s what we celebrate on today’s PEDEGO PODCAST.

The More the Merrier

Posted in electric bikes on May 23, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

It’s hard to eat just one potato chip. And for some entrepreneurs, it’s equally hard to run just one Pedego Electric Bike store.  Once the first one is up and running, there’s a drive for more.

That’s certainly the case with this week’s guest, Zach Selby, who opened his first shop almost on a whim.  Having taken over the family business of machining aircraft parts and moved it to Utah, he still longed for something a bit more fun and people oriented. So he found a small retail location and rented it without even being sure what he’d do there. Until eBikes appeared on his radar.  “I got to the machine shop at 4am and found I couldn’t wait to get to the bike shop” explains Zach. “So I just kept going and growing both.” Recently opening his 5th Pedego store in Utah. 

“They’re just so darn fun,” smiles Zach. Particularly the way he does them, with a full blown bar attached to his latest store in South Jordan called The Recharge Pub and Grub.  Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?

Building Community with EOS

Posted in Business on May 20, 2022 by OC Talk Radio



On this episode of Where There’s a Will, There’s a Way, host Will Crist talked with Nathen Fox, a certified EOS implementer. Before hearing about the EOS Life, Nathen was a fractional executive who worked with anywhere from three to five companies at a time. He worked 60-hour weeks and was not being compensated correctly for the amount of work he was doing. Although he liked his job, Nathen realized something had to change and he soon began to embrace the EOS Life and help others do the same. Throughout the episode, Will and Nathen discussed how EOS has affected Nathen, his clients, and the people around them.

Nathen Fox



“…Do things that…fill your energy, bring you energy, bring you joy. And you know, when you’re done, you should have more energy. And that’s how I feel.” Nathen Fox, (4:09)


“My challenge is making time for other passions…We just had our quarterly meeting today with our team. And that was on the issues list is me protecting my time and making time for other passions. So we’re making that happen.” Nathen Fox, (6:33)


“[The visionaries are] working on delegating the things that they like to do and are good at, so they can spend a hundred percent of their time in the box of things they love to do and are great at.” Nathen Fox, (9:44)


“We really were brought up to work hard and that’ll take care of everything, but, that’s not the case. They really got to learn to not work as hard.” Nathen Fox, (14:55)

“I just believe in implementing EOS purely and making sure that companies stick to it and create that result quarter after quarter.” Nathen Fox, (39:15)

What is a Caregiver?

Posted in charities, non-profits on May 18, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

This episode of Living Hope is a continuation of a pervious conversation about being a Caregiver with Stephanie Ruvalcaba Ho. What is a Caregiver? If you provide help to another person in need, you are a caregiver. Caregivers can be professional – hired through an agency or a family member stepping up.  Caregivers come in all different types – the one who takes care of all the medical needs, runs errands, meals, personal needs.  There is a lot to being a Caregiver, many challenges, roll coaster of emotions. Even with all these feelings there are some good things that can come out of this difficult situation. Listen as we have a very open and honest discussion here only on OC Talk Radio, Orange County’s only community radio station streaming live from UC I Beall Applied Innovation at the Cove.

This episode of Living Hope is dedicated to all Caregivers and thank them for their care, support and love during our journey.  I’d like to end with a quote from Former First Lady, Rosalynn Carter: “There are only four kinds of people in this world: those who have been caregivers, those who are currently caregivers, those who will be caregivers and those who will need caregivers. Caregiving is universal.”

Wow! It’s been a year already?

I can’t believe a year has come and gone! Who knew, for me the first episode I would go from “Executive Producer,” to actually becoming the host.  Looking back through our first year, so many amazing journeys, each one left me with wanting to learn more.  We shared so many emotions, laughter and tears but each one filled with love. Many of the journey’s may not have had the outcome we hoped for but we still found something positive, some strength we could take from every journey.  Join us on our weekly journey as we provide hope here only on OC Talk Radio Orange County’s only radio station live streaming from our station here at UCI Beall Innovation Center at the Cove

Explorer Extraordinaire (in the eyes of her kids)

Posted in electric bikes on May 16, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

This week we talk with a young supermom who wasn’t feeling so super after suffering some severe health issues and injuries.  But she was determined to be all she could be to her kids, so she bought a Pedego Stretch that was big enough for her two kids (7 and 5) to hop on back. And off they went to be (in her words) an “explorer extraordinaire” (at least in the eyes of her kids). 

Hear her heartwarming stories of riding again and sharing adventures with her kids like taking on the Gardens of the Gods in Colorado.  Like the supermom she’s determined to be (in spite of her injuries and illnesses). On this week’s Pedego Podcast.

How does a purple journey help a young girl deal with her dads cancer diagnosis?

Posted in charities, non-profits on May 13, 2022 by OC Talk Radio

A family friend gave 14 year old Tori a purple journey to help her cope with her feelings after learning her father had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  Ironically at that time neither realized purple is the awareness color for pancreatic cancer.  Tori felt her journal offered her a safe place to write about her journey and also used this journal not only to write about her feelings but to also keep track of her dads symptoms, treatments, medications, test results, anything to do with his journey.  Hear how this teenage girl helped co-facilitate a support group for other teenagers who had lost their parent and how her experience led her to where she is today.  Only on OC Talk Radio, Orange County’s only community radio station live streamed from UCI Beall Applied Innovation Center.
