Free Wheelchair Mission

Posted in Critical Mass with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 10, 2012 by OC Talk Radio

If you’re looking to give a “feel good” present for the holidays, consider making a donation to Free Wheel Chair Mission in someone’s name. For just $72, some needy person will get a free wheelchair in some Third World country in your giftee’s name.

Your friend or family member will get a card telling them what you donated in their name and then get to pick out the country this free wheelchair will go to (out of 82 choices). If they send in their email, they’ll even get a picture of the recipient sitting in your mutual gift! Wow…who could do better for just $72?

For more info, check out www.FreeWheelchairMission.org or listen to the interview we just did with them on OC Talk Radio’s “Critical Mass: Non Profit Show” by visiting our storage site at www.OCTalkRadio.podbean.com.

BMW Adds Web Radio

For the first time following the introduction of MINI Connected, the BMW Group is now also offering selected iPhone applications in a BMW for integrated use in the vehicle. This new capability – so far unmatched by any other carmaker – further enhances the already extensive BMW ConnectedDrive package of features and sees BMW once again underline its leading role in the field of in-car integration technology. Designed to improve the integration of the Apple iPhone in the vehicle, this option will be available from spring 2011 in conjunction with the launch of the new BMW 1 Series Coupe and new BMW 1 Series Convertible. This interface for the first time allows features such as Facebook, web radio and Twitter to be shown on the vehicle display and accessed using the iDrive Controller.

Let’s hope they allow Apple apps from Radio Time or Reciva (two of the services that list OC Talk Radio among their choices!)

OC Talk Radio Host Quoted in AMEX Open Forum

Posted in Critical Mass with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 6, 2010 by OC Talk Radio

Ric Franzi, co-host of CRITICAL MASS every Tuesday and Wednesday from 4-5pm PST here on http://www.OCTalkRadio.net, was recently quoted in an American Express Open Forum article called ” CEO Peer Groups: Finding Your Match.”

As a longtime professional facilitator for several monthly peer groups for business owners and executives here in Orange County, Ric was a natural inclusion in any such story. Having written the definitive guide on the subject called “Critical Mass: The 10 Explosive Powers of CEO Peer Groups” (now in its third printing on Amazon.com), Ric knows first hand the incredible effect these sessions can have on “making better, more informed decisions”.

But there are several steps which must be taken to insure that you get the most out of your peer group experience.  The most important factor (as the AMEX Open Forum article points out) is knowing who’ s in the group.

“You want to be in a group with leaders who run companies of a similar size or at the same stage of development. Insights and advice are more meaningful when they come from people running companies with the same span of control,” says Ric Franzi, who runs Critical Mass for Business here in Orange County, California, along with his partner Doug Gfeller, Past President of the International Coach Federation-OC and one of the few Master Certified Business Coaches in the country. Together, they act as the local franchise for the international Renaissance Executive Forums system. 

For more information on this transformative new process, check out www.CriticalMassforBusiness.com or become part of their free CRITICAL MASS COMMUNITY by tuning into www.OCTalkRadio.net every Tuesday and Wednesday from 4-5pm PST.
