Studies show that this work is important in solving all sorts of challenges.
I live and work by my core values which include integrity, compassion, communication, care and creativity. Some of the most frequent feedback I get from my clients and team is that I practice on myself what I bring to the table, everyday. I’ll never ask anyone to do something I wouldn’t or haven’t already put into practice myself.
Mindfulness helps us to live in harmony with our thoughts, words, and actions. - Amit Ray

I can not recommend her (Compassionate Muse) more as she truly cares for what you want to accomplish and the best, most compassionate way to achieve that.
Being in the industry for 20 years, with the last 8 at a small ticketing company, it was time for me to venture and carve out my own niche. I had been talking about doing this for years and when LJ reached out to me about Compassionate Muse. I thought "What can it hurt"? I could not have been happier with my decision. LJ has lent her expertise in how to navigate many of the pitfalls of starting a new endeavor in this wild Industry that we are in. She helped put me in the mindset of being my own boss and was the voice that I needed to get through.
Over the last 10 years LJ Malberg has been a vital business associate and resource of my company Opus One Productions.
From providing business solutions that helped Opus One grow into one of the leading truly independent (concert) promoters in the US to her guidance and advice in purchasing Club Cafe, one of Pittsburgh’s leading live music venues. I can’t express enough LJ’s thoughtful and savvy business perspective and solutions on a host of levels. Her ethically defensible standards, sharp business instincts and engaging personality have always been much to admire. I owe much of the success and growth of my business to LJ, Compassionate Muse and their contributions to my company.
