“So much wasted time.” – Last words of David Cassidy
The last words of David Cassidy are so profound, especially from a man who seemed to do everything but waste time. It’s a great reminder that we should all be living our lives to the fullest and doing what we love, every day, with people we respect.
Speaking of loving what we are doing, in addition to Pear Tree, I’m now working as writer and editor for Renna Media: http://rennamedia.com/
It’s a pleasure and an honor to be on board with Tina and Joe Renna! I’m going on my third week now, and it’s the most wonderful thing, covering local events like Christmas tree lightings, Boy Scout events, and Christmas walks. Nothing beats being out in the fresh air and basking in the energy of happy children, taking their photos, and then writing about it! In the words of Joe Renna, “It’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle.” And what a great lifestyle it is!
Meanwhile Pear Tree is still going strong on a part-time basis with many lectures, book signings, and ghost writing/book editing. There’s so much to do, with no time to waste! What can I do for you? Don’t let your dreams pass you by. Contact Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta today at: email@example.com
WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?
Feel free to contact me regarding my services (writing, ghost writing, book editing, blogging, typing, public speaking/lectures, and wedding officiant) 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).
