Pear Tree – September 2022

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, proprietor

“I love life and nothing intimidates me anymore.” — Olivia Newton John

A few weeks ago I celebrated my 59th birthday. It was shortly afterwards that I realized that nothing intimidates me anymore. It’s liberating to know that you can simply walk away from anything that is unsatisfying to your being. You don’t need it! And on the flip side, you can GO FOR your dreams! During the past month, I’ve taken several business chances–I mean, really going for the gold! And I’m excited to see what will manifest. You can do it too — believe in yourself; we have to believe we are magic!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

  • BOOK EDITING (Completed manuscripts only)
  • SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS
  • EXTRA WORK (or small acting roles in commercials and indie films)
  • OVER 50 MODELING
  • EVENT HELP

Note: Pear Tree will only present lectures/talks with a contract to be paid “day of.”

ABSOLUTELY NO NEGOTIATIONS.

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: maryannechristiano@gmail.com … 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.

Pear Tree June 2022

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, Pear Tree proprietor

“I think everybody’s weird. We should all celebrate our individuality and not be embarrassed or ashamed of it.” ― Johnny Depp

Through a massive amount of meditation, I was led to veganism last summer. It’s almost a year since I shunned all animal products. Fish was the very last to go, but after seeing a sweet octopus at a sea aquarium, I just couldn’t do fish anymore.

While many vegans judge others who still consume animal products, I try not to. This is my personal journey and path. Just like writing is my path.

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!

Pear Tree May 2022

In honor of my late grandmothers, Mary Mustachio and Gussy Finamore

“When one door shuts, another one opens.” — Grandma

“There’s a drive in me that won’t allow me to do certain things that are easy.” — Johnny Depp

The reason I began Pear Tree back in 2008 was to challenge myself. And that I did. During those years I became an author and public speaker. My traditionally published books can be purchased in Barnes & Noble stores.

It’s easy to work a full time job as an editorial assistant, or a part-time job as a cashier. It’s easy to be laid back and go to any job, whether it’s an office clerk or a chiropractor, get involved in gossip, and look forward to vacations. To me, no matter how much money you make, or how chill the job is, that’s not a life! I want to LEARN. I want to LIVE! And honestly, Pear Tree is the only source that provides me those opportunities. No two days are alike. I am blessed to have created something special that’s been going on both full time and part time all these years.

I began Pear Tree during the summer of the stock market crash, and Pear Tree survived a bad economy, Hurricane Sandy, and the Covid19 pandemic.

This is what speaks to my clients and peers–the longevity of Pear Tree!

Whether it’s editing a book, using some event help, or photographing an older, experienced, model, I can help! Reach out and call Pear Tree today – 908-276-1514 for service that gives you a voice!

Pear Tree February 2022

The Roaring ’20s

“I never want to be anything more than I am; what I don’t have, I don’t need.” — Louis Armstrong

Are we roaring yet?

This month I chose a strong quote from a famous roaring ’20s musician, Louis Armstrong. I really like what he says here because it’s so true in life. You really don’t need what you don’t have. Be appreciative for what you do. During the pandemic many businesses took a huge cut, during what should have been the start of our generation’s roaring 20s. But that down time taught us, that we what we didn’t have, we didn’t need. It was a great time to hunker down with loved ones and go deep inside. And that’s how we make our biggest roaring comeback — with a deep breath from within.

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Pear Tree January 2022

Maryanne Christiano Mistretta and Sammy

“Nothing is important, so people, realizing that, should get on with their lives, go mad, take their clothes off, jump in the canal, jump into one of those supermarket trolleys, race around the supermarket and steal Mars bars and kiss kittens.” — Morrissey

I’m starting off the new year with a bang of a quote by Morrissey. This quote resonates with me because I am the one who races in a supermarket cart like a little kid and sings songs in the aisles. Who cares if no one smiles at you. Just enjoy — your soul is watching. And being fun like that gives off great vibes to attract more fun in your life.

Doing what you love for a living, adds to that. Here are the things I am available for:

  • BOOK EDITING (Completed manuscripts only)
  • SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS
  • EXTRA WORK (or small acting roles in commercials and indie films)
  • OVER 50 MODELING
  • EVENT HELP

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.

Pear Tree October 2021

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta (Photo by Jeff Danze)

“Autumn shows us how beautiful it is to let things go.” — Unknown

Letting go is beautiful. It’s about saying, “I have moved on to something that works better for me.”

When you work for yourself, you don’t have to bend over backwards to keep every client. Whatever the reason. A personality conflict. Using work tools that you’ve already mastered. Something is no longer an experience. It’s okay. You don’t have to burn bridges, but saying, “It’s time to move on” is not a bad thing. It means you are growing.

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Shoot me an email at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

I’m available for ghost writing and memoir writing, editing, blogging, and proofreading. (NOTE: No agencies, I prefer to work with clients one-on-one.)

I’m also available for public speaking, as well as working events tables at trade shows such as Chiller and Comic Con. And my favorite, Over 50 Modeling!

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).

WRITING/BOOKS/JOURNALISM

Publications I’m currently writing for: Dental Products Shopper, Trenton Journal, and Grey Journal.

I’m also toying with the idea of another book. I have a few in the works.

Pear Tree September 2021

 

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, Pear Tree proprietor

“The point of power is always in the present moment” — Louise Hay

Whether I’m writing or editing or doing a presentation or modeling or being a brand ambassador or extra in a film or celebrity handler, all the things I do add up to a very cool career. It’s kind of annoying when people tell me to “relax” or that I work too much, when none of these things really feel like work! (To be honest, the “work” is getting the gig, the rest is a breeze!)

Whatever you do, do it with passion and embrace the power of the present moment–on the weekends, vacations, or even down time. Being present means being alive!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Shoot me an email at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

I’m available for ghost writing and memoir writing, blogging, editing, essays, and Facebook updates. And public speaking, as well as working events tables at trade shows such as Chiller and Comic Con. AND, back from what I did in 2009 — I’ve re-added “personal assistance.”

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).

WRITING/BOOKS/JOURNALISM

Currently working on my next book. Shh! It’s a secret!

Publications I’m currently writing for: Dental Products ShopperTrenton Journal, and Nutfield Publishing.

Pear Tree – August 2021

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, Show Boat, Atlantic City, July 2021

 “A life without love is like a year without summer.” —Swedish Proverb

Hey Gang!

How has your summer been? I’m totally loving it, especially now that places are re-open for live music shows.

And guess what? It looks like Pear Tree is back in full swing! I have some live programs booked! Check them out below. And in the meantime, if you need anything, check out the “What Can I Do For You?” section, as I’ve re-added some old stuff! After a brief break, I’m ghost writing again. AND, for the first time since 2009, Pear Tree is offering personal assistance!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

I’m available for ghost writing and memoir writing, blogging, editing, essays, and Facebook updates. And public speaking, as well as working events tables at trade shows such as Chiller and Comic Con. AND, back from what I did in 2009 — I’ve re-added “personal assistance.”

Pear Tree – July 2021

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, over 50 modeling (Photo by David Esposito).

“I was smart enough to go through any door that opened.” — Joan Rivers

Hey Gang! Three months ago I spoke about semi-retiring. Pear Tree is going strong on a part-time basis with some incredible things on the horizon. Just because I’m semi-retired, it doesn’t mean I’m turning my back on doors that are opening. Life is great that way! You never know what to expect.

Now that the pandemic is nearing an end, I am no longer doing ZOOM classes. Honestly, I am all ZOOMed out! I’m looking forward to, cautiously, doing public speaking and events again — LIVE!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

I am no longer ghost writing, but I am available to edit copy that’s already written.

Shoot me an email at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

I’m also available for blogging, editing, essays, and Facebook updates. And public speaking, as well as working events tables at trade shows such as Chiller and Comic Con.

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).

WRITING

Currently, I’m writing Facebook updates for Express Automotive (https://www.facebook.com/expressautometuchen). Stop by and give a “like” or a “love.” There’s great car tips, and even car-inspired songs to get you moving! We also said “good-bye” to shop cat, Ethyl. Feel free to leave your condolences. ❤
