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.
