017: Making Connections in the Art World with Michael Roderick

with host artist Miriam Schulman

Today,  I’m chatting with Michael Roderick, an expert in how to build your network whether that means meeting more artists, gallery directors, members of the press, interior decorators, or social media influencers. Michael helps thoughtful givers become thought leaders through the same methodology he used to go from being a high school English teacher to a Broadway producer in just under two years.

In this podcast, you will discover…

  • The four myths of success so you can figure out which mindset is holding you back
  • What the TCM index is and how it can help you sell more art  or find more time to create it.
  • What is the difference between networkers and connectors and which one you want to be
  • You’ll also discover  the best way to communicate and also apps that will help you do that (hint: it’s not Facebook messenger)

Listener Shout Out of the Week!

“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.”

  1. Miriam, Michael,
    This podcast was eye-opening for me. The four myths of success were really compelling. I recently participated in a local Studio Tour believing that it would be an amazing success to my art career. (Myth of Deus Ex Machina). I did the work and found that while I was thrilled to see friends come by for support, sales were disappointing. After listening to this podcast, I realized that I was falling prey to the Myth of Deus Ex Machina, that this Studio Tour would be the holy grail. It was a great event, but I had expectations that were way beyond what it was designed to provide. Thanks for the lesson. I now understand that the work is about building relationships with the local community. Miriam, you gave some great examples of how you do this. Thank you for this compelling podcast series, it’s a real service to the art community.
    ~Cynthia
