Pear Tree July 2020

DSCF5018Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, Pear Tree proprietor

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”― Albert Einstein 

There are so many negative things happening in the news right now, it could be a challenge to stay positive.  Just as nature has a way of taking care of itself, so does life in general. We get knocked down, but new doors open for us. Just keep moving.

This month I’m excited to share that I’m hosting many ZOOM classes, courtesy of both universities and libraries. See info below, some cost a fee, others are free. I’d love to have you!

Stay focused, stay healthy, and stay safe!

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

Check out my You Tube Channel for inspiration! Be YOUnique The Anti-Bullying You Tube Channel

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

“Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.” — Aristotle 

November ended up on the highest note! I was thrilled to perform my poetics at The Neighborhood House Association for the Leading by Mission Pop Up Shop event, hosted by Carolyn M. Gourdine.

I’ve included the videos on my Be YOUnique anti-bullying You Tube channel because my messages were strong, inspirational, and thought-provoking. You can see here:

“All About Eve” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyLorsfQig4&t=13s

“Never a Dull Day” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyiNL6ChEEI

If you enjoy the poems, give a “thumbs up” or leave a comment! I always love to hear from you.

Pear Tree June 2019

IMG_8612Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta (photo by Zander) 

“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!

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 – 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 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!

 WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Feel free to contact me regarding my services (writing, ghost writing/memoir 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).

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!

Pear Tree July 2018

DSCF2377

Above, left to right, Dennis Lords, Ryche Chlanda, Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta and Maryann Castello, host of the “Health & Wellness Show.” 

“In a way, you’ve already won in this world. Because you’re the only one who can be you.” –Fred Rogers.

As I am writing my fourth book, “I Don’t Want to Be Like You,” which holds as strong anti-bullying message, I’m realizing that the best thing we can do for anyone is to let them be themselves. It’s been such a blessing this past month working with people I truly like—because they are unique! This month I’m 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).

So many great things happened last month. I got to speak on behalf of the Coalition for the Human Condition (https://www.facebook.com/Coalition-For-The-Human-Condition-209170233169424/) about anti-bullying at Montville High School.

I debuted my Meet Your Soulmate workshop at Soulshine (https://www.soulshinecrystals.com/)

And, I was honored to be a guest on Maryann Castello’s “Health & Wellness Show.” Maryann was an awesome host. We spoke about my career, my three books (and upcoming book), music, health, and so much more! You can watch the whole episode here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VS3w8p-4nIk&feature=youtu.be

Life just keeps getting better and better! I can’t wait to see what happens next. 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!
