Our Baby Boomers are retiring and our Millennials are looking for meaning and purpose beyond the pay. We all want to feel connected in a way that’s inspiring but many aren’t feeling the love. I create a safe and trusted environment for you to move forward towards the actual dream job in Music you thought you signed up for in the beginning.

Happy Clients

“LJ opened my eyes and exposed me to new lanes and opportunities within the music and entertainment industries. Before LJ, I hadn’t known anyone who does what she does. I didn’t know something like that could be a possibility for me.”

Ashley
Social Media Coordinator, The Oprah Winfrey Network

“LJ Malberg brings character, charisma and chutzpah to every project and I would recommend her 8 days a week!”

Bill

SVP, Artist Services International (WEA) at Warner Music Group​

“LJ Malberg is nothing short of extraordinary. Her mentoring sessions are always unique, heartfelt, and motivating, and I’ve truly never met anyone who cares so deeply about the success of everyone she encounters. She truly has a gift in finding one’s true purpose and voice. Whenever LJ mentors Women in the Music Industry members, within just an hour we leave with sky-high confidence, a plan to achieve our dreams, and an abundance of support and unity. Right when LJ leaves, I can’t wait for her next mentoring session with us! I can’t recommend LJ enough for lessons in self-discovery, collaborating with compassion, and dominating the industry. With her guidance, our opportunities are endless.”

Diana
President, WIMI, Ohio University

“LJ has provided me with various tools and strategies to help me manage the overwhelming task of on boarding several new clients simultaneously. She has helped me to organize my client base by tier in order to set expectations for each client type based on several variables. I have learned through LJ’s coaching the importance of calendaring in advance so that I’m not scrambling at the last minute. She has been instrumental in making sure I take the time to recognize that I am working hard each day, no matter how stressful the workday may seem. This has played a huge role in maximizing my efficiency and heightening my self-compassion. LJ understands the stress and needs of the entertainment business and how to best deal with the wide spectrum of personalities. We work in an amazing, fun, yet demanding industry that never stops and LJ 100% gets this. This is key to having the ability to utilize her years of experience and apply it to different facets of the entertainment industry on behalf of her clients. I highly recommend partnering with LJ to help guide you in the right direction to be successful in your career and life. Thank you LJ!”
