Happy New Year from Pear Tree Enterprises
“A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”–Albert Einstein
When you think about the new year, I’ve learned it’s a wonderful thing to write down your goals. Interesting that for 2017 I made a list of everything I wanted to accomplish — all but three happened! It’s been an incredible year and one I am hesitant to say good-bye to! With all the great things that have happened for Pear Tree, the biggest was the expansion of the “Learn & Listen” series, which is now being made into a documentary.
And the final icing on the cake, was becoming the new editor for Renna Media: http://rennamedia.com/
In the words of Joe Renna, “It’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle.” And what a great lifestyle it is! This month my introduction as editor for 21 New Jersey newspapers will be out; and I am blessed that I had the opportunity to mention “Learn & Listen” in all of them!
Aside from the Learn & Listen series, Pear Tree is still going strong on a part-time basis with other lectures, book signings, and ghost writing/book editing. Would you like to try something new in 2018, like writing your first book? Contact Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta today at: firstname.lastname@example.org
