Pear Tree June 2019

“Don’t expect a great day; create one.” — Bob Proctor

It’s so amazing what great things can happen in your life by positive thinking, creative visualization, manifestation, and having a high-five tribe. By a high-five tribe, I mean hanging out with awesome people who are supportive and think as you do. “High Five Tribe” originally referred to an outdoor activity organization, but I’ve recently heard it used by positive people who surround themselves with like-minds.

In just one Memorial Day weekend, I’ve scored two blogging clients, and a book editing client. Why? Because people like to work with me. I’m well organized, dependable, and have the High Five Tribe mindset — I’m great, you’re great, let’s be great together!

There’s no room in my life — or mindset — for thinking in terms of jealousy or competitiveness. There are more than enough riches in the world for everyone.

Let’s work together and create a great day!

Would you like to be a part of Pear Tree too? You can become a part of the High Five tribe by reading on and making your dreams come true!

Pear Tree May 2019

IMG_20190406_172624_591 (1)Anti-Bullying Book Club, Little Free Library, Westfield New Jersey

“Bullying is cruel so don’t act like a fool. Meaness is a sign of weakness. ” — Unknown

Last month I was so excited to host an anti-bulling Book Club at the Little Free Library in Westfield, New Jersey. Thanks so much to librarian Sarah Liptack for her hospitality and awesome acai bowls!

It was an awesome bunch of girls who shared their deep thoughts and experiences with bullying. Kudos to these young women for knowing who they are at such a young age. They were definitely inspirational!

So many great things are coming up this month. I am so honored to have been chosen to present my workshop: “Be Your Own Hero” for the District 83 Annual Conference, “Transforming the World With Words” on Sunday, May 5! (See “Upcoming Presentations” for info).

A shout out to Mikhail Torich (https://www.torich.nyc/) who will be filming the event for me! I am thrilled to be working together.

Would you like to be a part of Pear Tree too? Read on…

Pear Tree – April 2019

 

DSCF3485

“7.5 billion people in the world and you let the opinion of one stop your good energy? You’re better than that.” — Jake Ducey. 

No! No one has the power to stop my good energy — or your good energy! We’re better than that, indeed! Thank you Jake Ducey, for the wisdom.

Sometimes I feel that it’s a devil’s trap. When things are going incredibly well, there’s always a party pooper ready to rain on your parade. The good news is, it’s easy to train your brain to move in a totally different direction and bask in all the wonderment that is YOU, my friend! Keep those good vibes coming!

There’s been a lot of greatness stirring around in my universe lately. Just last night I won “Best Table Topics” at Toastmasters International Westfield. Table Topics is when you answer a random question, on the spot, with only two minutes. It kind of reminds me of watching the Miss America pageant with my grandmother when I was a little girl. I was always amazed at the ladies answering random questions with such grace. Now here I am doing it!

And here’s a Q&A interview I recently did with KiCam to promote my upcoming book: “Be (Extra)Ordinary: 10 Ways to Become Your Own Hero” https://kicamprojects.com/questions-author-maryanne-christiano-mistretta/

Read on, to see how you can become a part of Pear Tree…What can I do for YOU? Or perhaps buy one of my books, or book one of my programs. I look forward to working with you!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Do you want to be a part of the Pear Tree journey and make your dreams come true?  Would you like to book a program, or get help writing your book? Become part of the Pear Tree journey! Call 908-276-1514 during business hours of noon to 6 p.m.; or email maryannechristiano@gmail.com anytime!

Pear Tree March 2019

SAM_3260 (1)Maryanne and Bennie, when he was still healthy — Rest in peace, my sweet angel…

“Sometimes, the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.” — Winnie the Pooh

What a sad, sad month February has been. Last summer, my husband and I took in a beautiful feral cat we named Bennie. We learned, from the vet, that Bennie had FIV (a feline auto-immune disorder). We loved him anyway and took him in our home with open arms. He was only 3-years-old.

A few months later, Bennie had a cut on his neck that wasn’t healing. After several visits to the vet and one emergency rush to an animal hospital, we realized Bennie wasn’t going to make it. He had a brain tumor, with no chance of survival. We had to put him down.

After it happened, I screamed, “NO!” My legs buckled and I collapsed into my husband’s arms. I’ll never forget our little love cat; my favorite cat of all! Of course this was the day after Valentine’s Day, because our Bennie was a little saint.

Rest in peace, Bennie, until we meet again, over the Rainbow Bridge.

Pear Tree January 2019

DSCF3192.JPGLeft, Maryann Castello of “The Health & Wellness Show”; Right, Maryanne Mistretta

It was super exciting to return to The Health & Wellness Show as a guest a few evenings ago. While I was the featured author, there were also two chiropractors. This event was fun and inspirational. We also sang some Christmas songs.

You can view the whole show here on You Tube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-U3OIu7as40

“New beginnings are in order, and you are bound to feel some level of excitement as new chances come your way.” — Oscar Auliq Ice.

I trust everyone is as excited for 2019 as I am! It never fails, late December, people are either away, taking an extended holiday, or waited for the new year to get motivated! So Pear Tree is quiet during the last few weeks of December–then BAM! Everyone wants to write their book, book lectures, begin blogs, and so on. And I’m incredibly busy!

That’s why I decided that if anyone wants to start writing their book in 2018, I’m offering the old rates until Monday, January 7, 2019. Then rates are going up! (For the first time in two years!)

In other news …

I’ve recently launched my official You Tube channel, Be YOUnique, The Anti-Bullying Channel. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLq6J9MSvcjd-haQ30ycLWA?view_as=subscriber

I’ve been hosting videos featuring local business owners, friends/family, and all around greatness who speak out against bullying! So please subscribe.

Currently I’m working on my fifth book which is a self-help book, which will be published in early 2019.

I’m also excited to report that my fourth book, “I Don’t Want to Be Like You” is doing well on Amazon! Check it out: https://www.amazon.com/Dont-Want-Be-Like-You/dp/1726273261

With that, I will say that I am available to speak about anti-bullying in schools, churches, events, and more! Feel free to contact me for availability at maryannechristiano@gmail.cm

I’m also helping two clients write their memoirs, doing some writing for R&S Landscaping (newsletters and updating their FaceBook page) (https://www.rscape.com/) and We Love Florists (https://www.facebook.com/beaflorist/). And of course continuing with bookings for my presentations (see below).

Do you want to be a part of the Pear Tree journey and make your dreams come true?  Would you like to book a program, or get help writing your book? Become part of the Pear Tree journey! Call 908-276-1514 during business hours of noon to 6 p.m.; or email maryannechristiano@gmail.com anytime!

Pear Tree September 2018

DSCF2687.JPGThou Shalt Not Commit Adulthood

“The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes.” — Frank Lloyd Wright 

Wow, just wow! Last month I celebrated my 55th birthday and I can’t believe how magical August was for me. It was only the end of July that I started shopping around my memoir “I Don’t Want to Be Like You.” Well, one month later, it’s on it’s way to being traditionally published. Yes, Higher Ground Books & Media picked up my story! This is yet another dream come true. The book will be out either later this month or October.

I’m also helping two clients write their memoirs, doing some writing for R&S Landscaping (newsletters and updating their FaceBook page) (https://www.rscape.com/), and continuing with bookings for my presentations (see below).
