The doctoral dissertation of Dr. Joan R. Cartwright is officially available at
THE day I defended my dissertation was March 21, 2017 @ 5:08 p.m. That was the day I became Dr. Joan Renee Cartwright. It is different for sure being Dr. Cartwright, being addressed as Dr. Cartwright, being done at Northcentral University in Arizona, online.
One of the committee members asked what I will do next. Aside from managing
this is how I feel and see my future
Teaching Public Speaking for the past year has convinced me that the classroom is my new stage. Therefore, I am open also to teaching Business Marketing and Ethics.
Peace and Love,
Dr. Joan Cartwright
From 1984 to 2017, Dr. Joan Cartwright steered her entrepreneurial vessel up the river of opportunity. This short video tells that story. During a TED Talk, British film director Jude Kelly mentioned the name Buzz Goodbuddy. But Cartwright heard Fuzz Goodbuddy and this video is the result of her google search.
Near the end of my 11th Doctoral course for Business Marketing, I am closer to graduation than ever before. As I look back over the past two years, much progress has been made. I’m not situated in Atlanta, GA, where I live with my daughter, Mimi Johnson, CEO of www.mjtvnetwork.info, which has several shows in production. On May 21, I will co-host one of three shows in a series entitled Amazing Musicwomen with vocal musician Sandi Blair.

Li Yang’s Crazy English Camp
Being a foreign teacher at Li Yang’s Crazy English Camp in Tungzhou, China, 45 minutes outside of Beijing, was one of the most intense and satisfying experiences I have had to date. Li Yang is one of China’s most famous motivational speakers. His goal is to teach 300 million Chinese people how to speak good English, which is almost a necessity, since Beijing has been awarded the 2008 Olympics site. At right, Richard Wu and his bride Daphne invited Joan to sing at their wedding.
New Friends in Japan!
In my journeys around the world in search of a melody, particularly, jazz and blues, I have found music in lots of clubs, bars, restaurants, concert halls, etc. But it is when I find the music in the home of a dedicated musician that I enjoy the experience even more. In the photo above virtuosa pianist Aoi Katoh entertains a group of friends in her home in Tokyo, Japan.
