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 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


Think of Internet Talk Radio as Another Social Medium

Posted in Internet Radio with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 13, 2011 by OC Talk Radio

As a community radio station, our mandate is to “stimulate conversations” and give local businesses and community groups “a voice on the Internet.”

As such, we’re always looking for “learning moments” where everyone can learn from the ideas and experiences of others.  Here’s one of those “learning moments” from our show CRITICAL MASS FOR BUSINESS (which airs live on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 4-5pm PST).

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, 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, 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.
