Praise for The Reactor Factor

"This book could easily be called ′No BS Bullet Points for Success. ′Straight talk about lots of topics and what you can actually DO to make your life the way you want it. Buy it, read it, and go to work!" Larry Winget New York Times bestselling author of People Are Idiots and I Can Prove It!

"Marsha is a straight–talker, direct, and honest, and shows you how personal accountability is key in both the business world and your personal relationship with yourself and others. She provides ways and tips on how to see yourself through the eyes of others and honestly assess yourself." Betty Chan–Bauza Vice President of Strategy and Product, LifeLock

"In my twenty years in the United States Marine Corps, at all levels of command, we operated by an SOP (Standard Operating Procedure). Marsha has provided you an SOP for success if you dare to read it." Steve Hill Master Sergeant, United States Marine Corps (retired)

"Read this book! If you need a job, it will give you clear direction; if you have a job, it will give you higher purpose. Marsha is the real deal and someone who truly cares about serving others." Doug Duce Chairman, iMemories; former Chairman and CEO, Cold Stone Creamery

"My experience has been that most management material I′ve read over the last forty–five years is either a restatement of Drucker or approaches problems as if they were in a test tube with static solutions. That is why I enjoyed Marsha′s book. She provides practical tools that may not guarantee success but do guarantee the opportunity to succeed." Bruce Crile Vice President, Human Resources, The Doctors Company

"This book shows you how to leap over mental hurdles, remain positive and optimistic in the face of turbulence and negativity, and fulfill your full potential for successful living." Brian Tracy author of How Leaders Lead
