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.

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,

How Time Flies

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.





The Present

So, I’m at the threshold of my DBA. My dissertation has been approved. My form to complete my study has been filed. My PowerPoint for defense of my dissertation is nearly completed and will be scheduled for mid-to-late February.

Meanwhile, I’m off to Barbados for one month of R&R with a friend whom I’ve know for six years online.



Graduation 2017


It has been 6.5 years in the making but my doctorate will be completed on December 13, 2016, and I will walk the walk on Saturday, July 8, 2017, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge, in Phoenix, AZ with other Northcentral University graduates.

My doctoral dissertation is Women in Jazz: Music Publishing and Marketing.

My Doctor of Business Administration/Marketing (DBA) will enable me to teach on a graduate level. I teach Public Speaking now at Southeastern College in West Palm Beach. I look forward to teaching business courses, hopefully, at Keiser University.

This has been a long march but I can see light at the end of the tunnel.
