"After knowing Deanna for 2 decades, and personally watching her go through many of the experiences described in her book, I can say she is battle tested and qualified to give orders and instruction. It’s rare to see someone with such strength and a huge loving heart. I recommend this book for anyone stuck in life that needs the extra push to get them back on track!!" Jeff Levitan- CEO All For One Foundation " In a world filled with weak leadership that passes the buck, never ending daisy-cakes who need a safe space to "survive". Deanna's own story and no nonsense approach to leadership is both needed and refreshing! This book is full of GREAT leadership insight, from the Donkey in the Well, to the Oreo Cookie Method, and written in a great conversational style. She shares troves of wisdom in both attitude and action that boils down to teaching the reader how to stop justifying why, to stop bleating out excuses and just take responsibility and become the kind of leader this world needs, now more than ever." Frank Schoen - Executive Marketing Director, WFG "I’ve known Deanna for over 20 years as a business partner and friend, and I can describe both her and this book in one word… awesome! Her storytelling lets you learn the concepts in a way that doesn’t feel like you’re learning something new at all! You’re just going along for the ride and absorbing the information as if through osmosis. Before you know it, you’re done with the book and wishing you weren’t! A must read at any age, any stage of life, any profession." Mike Boccia- Founder & CEO iDecide Interactive We all have our excuses.

Then why doesn't everyone have all their dreams and wishes come true? The answer is in this wonderful, golden nugget-filled book that cuts you down to the core. This is a true no-nonsense approach to getting everything you ever wanted in life. And Deanna nails it in this work of art. A short, to-the-point, easy read that will not only inspire you to do more, be more, and live your best life yet. So if you want more out of life and you desire to become everything you were made to be, then you must read this book and stop all Justificuses! In my humble opinion, this book is now surely in my Top 10 all-time great works of art that will truly make a difference, one person at a time! Sean Ragland Financial Fitness Directors, FinFit Life What everyone needs to hear, a powerful story of a women who preservers, and doesn't give herself excuses... Something that we all need in whatever we do in life... just keep going forward and make it happen. So many great examples off what a person can do when they put their mind to it and do fill themselves up with excuses. Great book!!! Kandi Kauffman Marketing Director, WFG This book is a must read. I couldn't put it down. So many powerful principles in every chapter. It changed my mindset forever!! It would be a great gift for your business partners that want to move their business to the next level. Tonya Michalowski Marketing Director, WFG I am so very proud of Deanna Marchionda for completing her endeavors to get this book, The Gift of Money, from a thought to a successfully achieved reality! People do readily open up about their health ‘problems’ and are likely to seek treatment from a doctor. Yet with finances and money problems, most individuals feel helpless and never seek true professional advice, from the RIGHT professional- to treat and manage the symptoms of this generational disease! I see this book as a wonderful blessing and tool that will allow individuals and families to open up productive communication and implement a financial treatment plan that is right for them. Perhaps after reading this book you too can identify your financial pains and ‘problems’ and use your new understanding of the financial concepts that she has shared here—in a very understandable way, mind you! This book is an invaluable asset! I too have had a paradigm shift just from the presentation and layout of the information, concepts and stories. I am grateful to have Deanna as my mentor and friend! Jessica Popio Real Estate Investor Everything you need to know! This is a GREAT read to get just about every concept of money the average person needs to (and usually does not) understand. Its written in an laid back and easy to digest style on a topic that otherwise might seem aloof and complicated. I highly recommend this book! Frank Schoen Executive Marketing Director, WFG Amazing content for those wanting wealth and prosperity! As a 22 year veteran in the financial services industry, I believe this book is a must read for all. Especially if you want simple to understand concepts that will walk you through how to grow and protect your wealth for generations to come. This is a must for all who want clarity and a further understanding of why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. You simply can not afford to not read this book! Once you read it once, you will want to pass it on to your future generations so that they can create generational wealth. Money is a gift and what you do with it is your responsibility to perpetuate it. Bottom line this book is truly a gift. Sean Ragland Financial Fitness Directors
