The Woman Who Manages Australia’s Biggest Celebrities

Michael Bublé, Delta Goodrem, Guy Sebastian, Fleetwood Mac, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Prince. What do all these famous musicians have in common?

They are just a small fraction of the talent managed by today’s guest, Jennifer Fontaine.

Jennifer started her career at Sony Music Entertainment Australia, before moving on to Warner Music Group.

But then, like so many women, she decided she wanted to do exactly what she wanted to do. She wanted to work for herself.

So in 2007, she founded Private Idaho Management, and began to look after the careers of Human Nature, and Guy & Jules Sebastian.

But with offices in both Sydney and LA, Jen was travelling a lot. All while taking care of her son and trying to grow her business. 

So how did she do it? 

And how on earth does she find time to lift weights 6 times a week?
