Pear Tree May 2022

In honor of my late grandmothers, Mary Mustachio and Gussy Finamore

“When one door shuts, another one opens.” — Grandma

“There’s a drive in me that won’t allow me to do certain things that are easy.” — Johnny Depp

The reason I began Pear Tree back in 2008 was to challenge myself. And that I did. During those years I became an author and public speaker. My traditionally published books can be purchased in Barnes & Noble stores.

It’s easy to work a full time job as an editorial assistant, or a part-time job as a cashier. It’s easy to be laid back and go to any job, whether it’s an office clerk or a chiropractor, get involved in gossip, and look forward to vacations. To me, no matter how much money you make, or how chill the job is, that’s not a life! I want to LEARN. I want to LIVE! And honestly, Pear Tree is the only source that provides me those opportunities. No two days are alike. I am blessed to have created something special that’s been going on both full time and part time all these years.

I began Pear Tree during the summer of the stock market crash, and Pear Tree survived a bad economy, Hurricane Sandy, and the Covid19 pandemic.

This is what speaks to my clients and peers–the longevity of Pear Tree!

Whether it’s editing a book, using some event help, or photographing an older, experienced, model, I can help! Reach out and call Pear Tree today – 908-276-1514 for service that gives you a voice!

Pear Tree March 2022

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, proprietor

“Just in a professional world, sometimes a phone call is more meaningful than a text.” — Kevin Harvick, race car driver.

Last week my husband and I bit the bullet and got a Smart Phone. SHHH!!!!! It’s not like we’re going to use it, it’s that we NEEDED it in order to get into the Billie Eilish concert, as paper tickets are becoming a thing of the past. But let’s not let reaching out via a phone call be a “thing of the past.” I’ve never been a fan of texting. Prior to this smart phone, I had another, several years ago–hated it, was glad to get rid of it. I truly don’t get the obsession with texting. And it’s not the way Pear Tree does business. We’ll always give good old fashioned service with a personal touch. A phone call or an email is a message delivered with care and class. Reach out and call Pear Tree today – 908-276-1514 for service that gives you a voice!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

  • BOOK EDITING (Completed manuscripts only)
  • SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS

Pear Tree September 2021

 

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, Pear Tree proprietor

“The point of power is always in the present moment” — Louise Hay

Whether I’m writing or editing or doing a presentation or modeling or being a brand ambassador or extra in a film or celebrity handler, all the things I do add up to a very cool career. It’s kind of annoying when people tell me to “relax” or that I work too much, when none of these things really feel like work! (To be honest, the “work” is getting the gig, the rest is a breeze!)

Whatever you do, do it with passion and embrace the power of the present moment–on the weekends, vacations, or even down time. Being present means being alive!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

Shoot me an email at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

I’m available for ghost writing and memoir writing, blogging, editing, essays, and Facebook updates. And public speaking, as well as working events tables at trade shows such as Chiller and Comic Con. AND, back from what I did in 2009 — I’ve re-added “personal assistance.”

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).

WRITING/BOOKS/JOURNALISM

Currently working on my next book. Shh! It’s a secret!

Publications I’m currently writing for: Dental Products ShopperTrenton Journal, and Nutfield Publishing.

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, Show Boat, Atlantic City, July 2021

Pear Tree – July 2021

Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, over 50 modeling (Photo by David Esposito).

“I was smart enough to go through any door that opened.” — Joan Rivers

Hey Gang! Three months ago I spoke about semi-retiring. Pear Tree is going strong on a part-time basis with some incredible things on the horizon. Just because I’m semi-retired, it doesn’t mean I’m turning my back on doors that are opening. Life is great that way! You never know what to expect.

Now that the pandemic is nearing an end, I am no longer doing ZOOM classes. Honestly, I am all ZOOMed out! I’m looking forward to, cautiously, doing public speaking and events again — LIVE!

WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?

I am no longer ghost writing, but I am available to edit copy that’s already written.

Shoot me an email at: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

I’m also available for blogging, editing, essays, and Facebook updates. And public speaking, as well as working events tables at trade shows such as Chiller and Comic Con.

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).

WRITING

Currently, I’m writing Facebook updates for Express Automotive (https://www.facebook.com/expressautometuchen). Stop by and give a “like” or a “love.” There’s great car tips, and even car-inspired songs to get you moving! We also said “good-bye” to shop cat, Ethyl. Feel free to leave your condolences. ❤

Pear Tree May 2021

“I choose to make the rest of my life the best of my life.” — Louise Hay

Hey Gang!

Last month I spoke about semi-retiring and taking art classes, as well as studying to become a feline behaviorist. Both are going great! I’ve been getting nothing but 95 and 100 on my grades for feline behavior!

Check out one of my paintings, in acrylic, right below!

Pear Tree is still going strong, just on a part-time basis.

I am no longer ghost writing (only editing books that are completed), but I’m available for blogging and journalism. I’m also doing more modeling (yes, at 57!) and acting. There’s also public speaking via Zoom (see what I have to offer below), as well as publishing consulting.

While we are still in the pandemic here in the USA, we continue to be cautious. At Pear Tree, I’m happy to work with you via phone calls; or at your home wearing a mask and social distancing.

View the next section “What Can I Do For You?” to see what I can do for you and your business! Whether it’s blogging or writing or working on your book – I can help you get your not-boring life down on paper!

Contact Pear Tree today: maryannechristiano@gmail.com

Note: We can work remotely during COVID, via ZOOM or telephone. This has been working out great. Why not start a new journey from the comforts of your own home? Get that book written today!

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. I am no longer ghost writing, but I am available to edit copy that’s already written.

Pear Tree September 2020

IMG_3395Maryanne Christiano-Mistretta, proprietor 

“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

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

[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 2020

“Don’t just sit there and complain — do something.” Jack Canfield 

These last few months have been so hard for many. It’s easy to get into a rut and complain, especially when loved ones are at a health risk. But it’s vital to your health and the health of others you love to continue to live life to the fullest. If this year has taught us anything, it’s that you just don’t know when your time will be up — because healthy people are getting Covid too!

While I’m still blessed to be on this planet, I’m having a blast hosting my ZOOM classes, courtesy of both universities and libraries. The last of my Allfafa University series is in August, but I’ll be renewing in September. Stay tuned.

In the meantime, 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

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!
