If you are a woman who wants to live life to its fullest, this book is for you. At the age of 25, as a widow with a nine-month old son, Mary Grace Musuneggi became keenly aware that Cinderella was a fairy tale and that her salary as a parochial school teacher would never be enough to realize her goal of owning a home. Mary Grace decided to take charge of her own situation and carve out the abundant life she wanted for herself and her son. The story of her journey to become the first female agent in an insurance firm, to that firm’s first female financial planner, to Chairman and CEO of her own successful firm is filled with anecdotes, humor, and practical advice.

In her role as a financial planner, Mary Grace meets women of all ages who rely on a man as a financial plan with disastrous results. But you won’t find detailed instructions about how to make a budget here because this book is about more than money. It is about finding the courage to be CEO of your own life, whether a man is in it or not. This book will inspire you to examine your own dreams and goals and get on the path of achieving them one step at a time. Grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and start reading. A Man is Not a Plan will change the way you think and the way you live.



Single Steps Strategies: Strategies for Abundant Living is a concise guide on how to live a rewarding life. It draws its inspiration from Mary Grace’s own trials and tribulations as a young widow and single parent. She provides a unique perspective to help guide individuals about how to make the changes that can positively affect their lives, drawn from her own real-life experiences.

“This book is a gift to anyone seeking an abundant life. It is compelling, moving, and inspiring. The clearly defined steps outlined in the book carve a path to a more fulfilled life. It all begins with the first step – buy the book!”
