“During my sessions with Lisa, a Big Idea was birthed – something very personal to me that has the potential to change the lives of grieving teens across the country. Every time I shared this Big Idea with someone, there were goosebumps, tears, chills – both from me and the listener. It was something I couldn’t shake, and wouldn’t want to. Something hugely important. Now I’m meeting with a Big Player in the industry, and we are beginning the process of its unfolding. Thank you so much, Lisa, for your insight and guidance. It feels so freaking huge – nationwide – and that blows my mind. Your services are not just about marketing. They’re about birthing what’s in your soul.” Teri Wilder, www.teriwilder.com
“Lisa helped me think about my music in ways I never had before. She guided me through a thought process that defined opportunities I’ve been missing and made me realize that the music I’m making needs to find the right audience–not change–to create a successful career. The sessions were fun and insightful, and she was careful to ensure that I didn’t just emerge with a cookie-cutter plan, but a clear understanding of my personal goals as a musician and how to start reaching for them.”
-Jessica Nicollela, Singer/Songwriter
“Many artists in the music industry understand that in order to have a successful career, you have to have a solid image to represent your work. What puts Lisa Bell above all others in consulting is that she knows that your image is truly best represented by the spirit behind your music; the soul. This is exactly what Lisa helped my band with by discussing what matters most to us, helping us verbally work out why we are musicians and the message we want to send. With Lisa’s help, I have rediscovered my voice and my reason for being a musician, so that I can now move forward in creating an image for my band, one that is rooted in a strong sense of self.”-Analise Nelson www.blackvelvetsun.com
The Process: Source + Soul + Science

The first step is for Lisa to meet with you individually and conduct a Life Path Analysis. Lisa will show you how your personal intuition can guide you through difficult business decisions and challenges as well as help you to select and work with the best team members, clients and colleagues who will ensure that your music business is prosperous and abundant.

I spent the first half of my life dedicated to helping business professionals and corporations navigate the ever-changing needs of the consumer marketplace. For the past 22 years I have provided marketing and business consultation for both large corporations and entrepreneurial business owners, specializing in the natural products industry.
Music has always been a huge part of my life but I didn’t find the courage to pursue a professional career until later in life. In 2001, my world was falling apart. My marriage was collapsing, a business partnership was ending and my life was at a crossroads as I was suddenly a single mom. The pull of the passion to sing professionally was so strong that I knew I had to take a leap of faith, even though the odds were against me as an older singer in the young world of music.
So at the age of 35, I began a professional singing career in earnest. I have released three CDs, performed in front of thousands, have opened for numerous major acts and enjoyed my first international tour to Italy the summer of 2011. I achieved all of this while continuing to be a successful business consultant.
But in 2009 this dual life started to take its toll and I knew I had to make a change. A visit to Sue Frederick, the author of I See Your Dream Job, helped me to realize that my true calling in life is to help heal and transform the world through my music and energy work, as well as to help others to discover and manifest their true destiny.
I discovered that my business & marketing consulting had evolved into providing more personal guidance to small businesses. I was very enthused about that part of my work and began to look for a niche where I could put everything together in a business that would be fulfilling and passionate. Working with musicians seemed to be an obvious choice, and I have been fortunate to work with many individual artists, both new and established, to develop a successful focused path for their career.
