Cohort-based Course

Create business success your way.

Course overview

Get connected without the constant scroll.

"You have to get on social media to grow your business, and be sure to post every day."

Everyone was telling me about tweeting, posting, and hashtagging like my life depended on it. But my life depends on eight hours of sleep and quality relationships.

I'm not anti-social, I'm just pro-personal connection. You won't find me on Instagram or Facebook, and I only post on LinkedIn when Mercury is in retrograde.

By sticking to networking strategies that align with my personality and values, I connected my way to six figures in my first year as a solopreneur.

I've curated proven methods that consistently lead to what I'm seeking.

For instance, a conversation on the tennis court and helping a friend of a friend via text message, led to me landing gigs with Adobe and Herr's Snack Foods.

I'll be guiding you on a tour during this course, but instead of taking you to all the typical tourist spots, I'll help you find your own unique path. Say hello to methods that match your personality.

Melanie Obitz-Bukartek, Ph.D.

EdTech Founder & CEO

Dr. Melanie Obitz-Bukartek is an award-winning teacher who helps people of all ages use writing as a tool for life. (Don't worry, she won't push you to compose poetry as your networking strategy if it isn't your thing. Although, she did once craft an apology rhyme for missing a meeting, and it was a lyrical success.)

Before embracing her entrepreneurial spirit, Melanie lived a life of academic adventure. She was a college professor, district-wide literacy coordinator, school-wide literacy coach, and classroom teacher. She has an educational treasure trove that includes degrees from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and Johns Hopkins, and a Ph.D. in Curriculum & Instruction from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, plus a Ph.D. minor in Creative Writing.

She lives in Delaware, just a crab's scuttle from the ocean, with her husband, son, and two beachcombing dogs. Melanie is an avid tennis player and is happily learning how to transfer those skills to the pickleball court.
