About The First Guest - LJ Malberg
Hi!  My name is LJ Malberg and I am the Compassionate Muse.  I am an organizational design consultant, trainer and executive leadership coach and CEO of The Reliance Company.  I believe that leading with compassion creates the most successful work environments and contributes both to the welfare of the individual and continued growth to the organization's bottom line.  There are countless studies that prove that happy workers are far more productive, inclusive contributors to their companies than their unhappy counterparts, and that these positive behaviors spill over affecting home and family life as well.  We live in a precarious time where compassion is needed now more than ever, and my work is to spark change in the way organizations and individuals work together.

P.S., Acknowledgements
The host wishes to take this rare launch day opportunity to thank and acknowledge the following people and services that have made this day possible. To Stacey who deals with the piles of books, comics and boom mic stands in our tiny Brighton apartment. To LJ, who is more than the spirit of #ITTIGPOD, more like direct inspiration. To all of my guests in Season 1, recording has been such a joy. To Sam Furst from Monsters are Good. for making me look great! To Cooper and House of Harm for offering tracks for the intro music. To our first sponsor, MMMMAVEN, a place where creativity blooms. To Dan Benjamin at for making a sensible and professional podcasting CMS that works better than I could have imagined. To Pat Flynn and Power-Up Podcasting (and I'm not just saying that for you to force a passing grade)! And to you, the listener if you are family, friend or perhaps foe, please spread the word on this show!
