Who is Nathan Lively?

A sound engineer, musician, business coach, and pro audio consultant.

The difference between me and other sound engineers is that I’ve tried a lot of different ways to market myself, sell my services, and build my career across many different fields in the audio industry, on large and small events across three different countries. Basically, I’ve spent my entire career as a guinea pig for this program. I bring that breadth of experience to the coaching environment to create specific advice and guidance for the next steps in your career.

See my 80+ articles in Pro Sound News Europe, LinkedIn, and Sound Design Live.

What’s included?

Weekly one-on-one coaching calls.

All of my best training content over the past 3 years — career advice, job search, technical training, creative expression, self promotion, health, and nutrition — in one place. Curated by me, especially for you.

Access to a focused online community of dedicated peers, personally facilitated by me.

How does it work?

There are five parts to the program: Coaching, Consulting, Content, Community, and Commitment.


You get a one-on-one coaching call with me every week via phone or Skype, depending on your needs. This is where you’ll get to ask your burning questions and get feedback from me about your current challenges and obstacles, saving yourself years of dead-ends and misguided attempts.


Because of my experience in the audio industry I’ll give you direct guidance and feedback on what I’ve seen work well for me and others.


Each time you and I talk, I will recommend for you a particular piece of content (video; audio; article) that would be especially useful for your current project. You’ll also get access to my five week system tuning course, Seeing Sound.


You’ll get access to a private online community of other audio professionals where you can ask and answer questions of other people who are doing the same thing you are…building a career in audio. Plus, you will get access to my hundreds of industry connections.


I am committed to your growth as an audio professional and I ask for you mutual commitment to be your highest self.

How is this different?

You may be nodding your head thinking, “Yes, this makes sense. I just need to get myself out there.”

If it were that easy you would have done it already!

The truth is that the #1 problem that most of us have is taking consistent action. You may be paralyzed by indecision, unclear about opportunities, or stuck in old patterns. Personalized coaching and public accountability are the best ways to build strong momentum of meaningful action.

The bottom line

I care deeply about your growth as an audio entrepreneur and your satisfaction with your work.

This is the only program of it’s kind and I work every day to drive the strongest results possible.

I urge you to make a commitment today to health, wealth, and happiness.
