Pear Tree September 2020

“Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity.” — Kahlil Gibran 

This has been a hard year for so many. But even during moments of struggle, do not give up on your dreams. Last week my husband and I took in a scared feral kitten. It was exhausting worrying how the kitten’s bill of health was. When we heard from the vet he was perfectly healthy what a relief! But the kitten was still frightened and skittish. However, one week later, the kitten is now trusting and playful, as a kitten should be. What does this tell you? That anything situation can change to a positive within a short time. All it takes is trust. Trust in God or the Universe. And trust in yourself. Times may be challenging, but that makes going for the gold even more rewarding!

This month I have something totally new! I’ll be hosting a motivational camp for middle school and high school students at Metta Casa in Scotch Plains, NJ. For more information, see below under EVENTS.

I’m also helping people ghost write their books remotely — and it sure is fun!

If anyone needs kind words or a prayer, I am here for you, just an email away: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

During these stressful times it’s hard to think about dreams, or business in general.

But if you want to get your mind off of things, writing a book may be a great idea. And I can help you. Shoot me an email at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

[NOTE: During COVID19, all book writing services will be conducted over the phone.]

I’m also available for blogging, editing, and Facebook updates.

For the moment, these services are suspended: Public speaking/lectures, wedding officiant, and over 50 model.

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).

Pear Tree August 2018

DSCF2455You can count on Pear Tree for good old fashioned service! 

“Professionalism shouldn’t be defined by a persons paycheck, role, or title. It should be defined by a persons work ethic.” — Janna Cachola

When my husband and I spotted these ancient telephones in Nyack, New York (above), I saw this as an appropriate photo op for Pear Tree Enterprises! I’ve always prided myself in good old fashioned work ethic. My clients have me 100 percent. While I’m working, I am not on my cell phone; I am not texting; and I am certainly not juggling two tasks at once. My clients have my undivided attention when I’m editing or presenting a talk.

But there is something else not many know about Pear Tree. Whoever hires me for my book editing/ghost writing services, gets free time for their birthdays and Christmas. Ask me about it when we work together! How old fashioned is that? I’d say it’s better than a baker’s dozen.

Last month I finished  “I Don’t Want to Be Like You,” which holds as strong anti-bullying message. And now am shopping it around to publishers. I’m also working on helping a man write his memoir, 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).

Do you want to be a part of the Pear Tree journey?  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!
