This past year has been like no other. And the needs of those around us have been great. Businesses have closed their doors and employees are left without a means to put food on the table or pay their rent or utilities.

This week on Money In Money Out, Susan Gunn welcomes Theresa Narantic. Theresa has been in dentistry over 35 years growing dental businesses and dental teams. Theresa shares with us her passion for philanthropy and talks to us about embarking on a philanthropic journey. 

Episode Highlights

  • Reviewing the Texas Snovid Experience
  • Developing the habit of philanthropy
  • Getting Started - Find Your Passion
  • Practice Team Events


“Philanthropy can be something we have to do, because there are always people in need.”

“It’s not something we HAVE to do, but something we GET to do.”

“It is that feeling that you know someone else is down, or out, or in need I always look back and say, but for the love of God.” 

“Mentoring is where it begins. If you do not get exposed to it, how do you know that there is a reality different from the one you are living?”

“We are creatures of habit. If we want to develop a philanthropic attitude, we need to make it a habit.” 

“When you give, it comes back ten fold.” 

“It’s not the huge large amounts that make the difference, it’s the little baggies of coins.” 

“They are living their philanthropy.” 

“Take that first step, realize that there is a need, and that without you, it won’t happen.” 

“Whatever you decide it, has to come from inside - there is no right or wrong.” 

“Teams bond and when they have the same philanthropic purpose, they do good things at a bigger volume. And when a team feels good about what they are doing, they also feel good about each other, about the industry, and it becomes more about what they can do than about their paycheck.”  

“We don’t make a living by what we get - we make a life by what we give.” 

“The purpose of life is a life with purpose.”
