#103 | Mental Health in Music: LJ Malberg

Leading with compassion.

Suz kicks of Mental Health Awareness Month with Compassionate Muse CEO LJ Malberg, with a frank discussion about the toxicity that exists in the music industry and how to combat it and break the cycle.

I finally realized that our biggest challenge in music isn’t music, it’s our relationships with the people we work with and the relationships that we have with ourselves. That’s the biggest problem.
