Pear Tree, July 2022

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, Pear Tree proprietor

“Don’t criticize what you don’t understand, son. You never walked in that man’s shoes.” — Elvis Presley

No matter how great of a person you are, it’s a fact that many will not like you or understand you.

This is why I continue to make my anti-bullying You Tube videos (link below in the anti-bullying section). It’s not just to inspire others, but to selfishly remind myself.

However, if you think about it, not being liked by everyone takes a huge amount of pressure off of you. Just be yourself and life works itself out.

We are all unique individuals and we all strive to be loved and accepted. However, that’s not always the case. Some don’t understand us, therefore cannot accept us. Nevertheless, we should all continue doing what we set out to do. Continue following your dreams and celebrating your differentness!

NOTE: At this time, Pear Tree is booked to the max! To be put on the “waiting list” for book editing contact me at: … Note, this is for complete manuscripts only. Pear Tree is no longer accepting ghost writing clients.

I may be available for Over 50 modeling paid gigs and Event Help.

  • BOOK EDITING (Completed manuscripts only)
  • EXTRA WORK (or small acting roles in commercials and indie films)

Unfortunately, Pear Tree will no longer present to libraries unless there is a signed contract to be paid “day of.” Pear Tree Enterprises is not a collection agency, therefore checks must be presented “day of” or the program will not be. NO NEGOTIATIONS.


Last month, I was honored to cover this story for Tap Into Paterson:


I was highly honored to be invited back as a guest on James Burns’ Anti-Bullying 101 podcast.
