016: How to Increase Focus with Journaling

with host artist Miriam Schulman

In this episode I am going to be talking about journaling. I get a lot of questions from my listeners who have trouble focusing. This episode is dedicated to a deep dive into the strategy that I use to quiet my monkey mind and stay focused throughout my day.

These days a lot of planners actually include journaling prompts. The biggest roadblock may of us have in reaching our goals is gaining clarity about what those goals should actually be.

In this episode, learn about my daily journaling practice, ways to make journaling part of your day and which planners may help you.

About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m an artist and founder of The Inspiration Place, where I help other artists learn how to profit from their passion or become better artists. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, I’ve helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. My signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from so-so sales to sold-out collections.

A graduate of Dartmouth College and M.I.T, I initially pursued finance but after witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and my story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, The New York Times, Art of Man, Art Journaling magazine as well as featured on NBC’s “Parenthood” and the Amazon series “Hunters” with Al Pacino. My forthcoming book with HarperCollins Leadership on how to make it as an artist is scheduled to be released January 31, 2023. When I’m not in the studio, you can find me hanging out with my husband, adult kids, and a tuxedo cat named Ebony.

Listener shout out of the week!

“A must-listen for any aspiring artist looking to better understand their customers and how to reach potential customers. Miriam is a delightful teacher. When she taught at [Donna Downey] Studio, she not only helped students improve their art but also gain insight on their ‘why.'”

~Donna Downey, donnadowney.com

I’ve been in the art studio making some new videos, a whole 12-part series called: Artpreneur Affirmations. I took each chapter title in the book and made an art journal page out of each.

You can't buy this course separately!

If you want to get your hands on it, the ONLY way you can enjoy it is when you pre-order the book, Artpreneur.

When you order a paperback copy through this page, you'll get instant Access to a dozen mindset sessions designed to help you bust through your starving artist mindset blocks and get you thinking like an abundant artist…in ten minutes or less!🙏

Thank you for being part of my world!🧡🧡🧡

  1. I love all your podcasts. This episode reminded me to get back to journaling. My life has been a crazy rollercoaster ride for the past few months with little or no time to create or let go. I have not been journaling at all either. After listening to today’s podcast, I am reminded how much journaling has helped me for years. Thank you so much Miriam for all the hard work and dedication you put into these podcasts every week. Each episode is priceless.
