OnlineBound with Elena Mutonono is a podcast for online language teachers and coaches who are tired of cramming more client hours into their day and look for ways to grow their business in a smart, lean and sustainable way.
In this podcast we explore the topics of authenticity, sustainability, values, efficiency, resilience and creativity when running an online teaching business in an oversaturated language teaching market.
We will broaden our horizons, challenge our mindset and forge our own paths amidst loud and demanding voices of scarcity and pursuit of fast profits at any cost.
Together we will build resilience as we journey into the unknown, commitment to the change we seek to make and faith in creating a better world by connecting people across cultures through teaching languages online.
The Smart Teacher's Library is currently open for a short time!
Are you looking for support on your online language teaching journey? Are you building your business but finding yourself overwhelmed and overworked?
If this podcast has helped you and if the values communicated through my work resonated with you, I want to invite you into our community today!
The enrollment is currently open through December 5, and you're welcome to join (the bonuses are dope!).
Listen as I talk about it (in my own words and with a grass mower somewhere in the background -- sorry), and I hope you join us today! Here's the link to sign up:
