“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.” – David Bowie
Almost nine years ago, I took a big chance. I left a cushy job as editorial assistant without a back-up plan. After a summer of rest and working part-time at a little health food store, I decided to start Pear Tree Enterprises. This summer will mark the ninth anniversary of my start-up business. In the beginning, I took on all kinds of jobs and clients; and have crafted Pear Tree into solely a business of writing, ghost writing, book editing, typing, public speaking/lectures. Not only am I doing the things I love most, but working with people I adore. And of course, it’s never boring!
WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?
Feel free to contact me in regard to using my services (writing, ghost writing, book editing, typing, public speaking/lectures) at: MaryAnneChristiano@Gmail.com.
Rates are reasonable, and the first hour phone (or in-person) consultation is free to potential new clients. Every client who uses Pear Tree services will be featured in the newsletter (unless for whatever reason they don’t want to be in the newsletter, as privacy is respected).
And check out my blog (http://maryannemistretta.wordpress.com/) for updates and happenings. Or find me on Twitter, Facebook, and Linked-In.
