What people are saying about LJ Malberg:
“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 Osborne, Social Media Coordinator, The Oprah Winfrey Network and Scripps College OU alumni
“LJ has served as an invaluable partner as I’ve worked to determine next steps for professional development. Her extensive experience paired with a constant intellectual curiosity in many facets of business + leadership provides a unique and holistic approach to problem solving and advising clients. As a seasoned listener with a high level of emotional intelligence, she is able to provide depth and clarity for her clients that address the core of who the individual truly is, what they value most and how that correlates to strategic growth - beyond focusing areas of expertise or their position. I highly recommend LJ’s services to any individual - or company - who is ready to explore a self-revealing assessment that better prepares for career growth, professional and personal happiness.”
-Jordy Freed, VP of Strategic Business Development, Blue Note International

-Bill Ashton, Senior Vice President, Artist Services International (WEA) at Warner Music Group  

“I worked closely with LJ for 5 years at Ticketmaster during her tenure as Director of Sales. She amazed me every day  with her tenacity and passion for finding creative solutions to seemingly impossible problems. LJ mastered managing  relationships with all the key players at the top clubs in the country with finesse, all while tirelessly managing to keep  every client she worked with engaged and committed. She was a pleasure to work with as well. I credit her as a key  mentor on my career path - ever the cheerleader to everyone she comes across.”
 -Gwendolyn Dipert, Quality Assurance Engineer, Zift and former Ticketmaster Client Services Specialist    

“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 Buchert, President, WIMI, Ohio University
