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.

    Elena Mutonono on how to go through the hard times

    We are jumpstarting a new season of the Online Bound podcast with a solo episode about going through the hard times. Because toxic positivity stories and success stories are everywhere. But it’s stories about real struggles that make us feel less alone braver. So if you’re sick of toxic positivity, if you’re surrounding yourself with successful people only to find yourself feeling even more lonely, or if you’re telling yourself that you should have done or achieved more already, then this episode is for you.

    On freedom and responsibility when we teach online

    On freedom and responsibility when we teach online

    In the last episode of this season of OnlineBound, I talk to Veronika Palovska, a brand strategist and my business partner in crime. We dive into the topic of freedom, how growing up in post-communist countries shaped our perception of it, and some of the ways it shows when running our businesses.
    This conversation is about the importance of having your own definition of freedom and the courage it takes to pursue real freedom, not just the idea of it. We hope you’ll join us.
