Pear Tree – March 2023

Always Going Somewhere!

“Happiness depends upon ourselves.” — Aristotle

Every day I like to take a short peek in an old diary to see what I was up to. And every day, no joke, I have something notable in my life. Whether it’s career related or something fun, I can look back and smile.

It’s true happiness depends on ourselves. Even during the not-so-happy times, there’s always something you can do that is fun or inspiring.

Perhaps Pear Tree can be part of that? Check out what I can do for you, come to one of my events, or book me for an event.

Spread the positivity! We can all be there for each other. Let’s create together.

And be sure to check out Omni Publishing by the end of the month, to get my latest book, “So You Think You Know the Jersey Shore?” https://omni-pub.com/
