Listener shout out of the week!
“I love these podcasts! Miriam offers a myriad of inspiring experts who in turn offer brilliant tips and strategies to creatives, whether in their art, in their lifestyles, relationships and businesses. Being a creative does not necessarily focus on creating art itself, it is the art of being creative and to create a better life for yourself and for others. After all, aren’t we all creative beings whether we can paint or not?”
You want to feel absolutely unstoppable in 2020? 🙋 Good.
Here’s what NOT to do:
❌ Start goals & projects that don't align with your life purpose
❌ Keep beating yourself up for past mistakes.
❌ Continue holding on to old emotional baggage (regret, anger, upset, resentments).
💜That's why we spend an entire week decluttering our hearts, minds and physical space during the Painting with Words Course 👉 schulmanart.com/ENROLL
If you want to MOVE FORWARD, you have to let the old baggage GO.
This process is so powerful and it's worked for me and the hundreds of art students who have already taken this class.
Not only do these exercises help you
✔️ EVOLVE into the next best version of yourself-- but you also
✔️ have FUN doing it at the same time
✔️ while learning new art skills. (check, check, check)
But MORE important than the art, is the TRANSFORMATION that this class has helped my students.
During Wednesday night's live training (you can watch the replay here) Carol had this to say about her experience with Painting with Words:
"I had some big health issues a couple years ago. My life was crazy, spiraling out of control, and I was constantly living in fear. I almost backed out of the course but after the first couple of lessons I knew it was going to save me! It gave me a way of working through my fears and attending to the next steps I needed to take. There is no doubt in my mind that you, Miriam, provided just what I needed. You have a place right up there with my doctors and therapists who helped me get through to the other side."~Carol
That's why I say this course is more than just an art class... it takes the self-development to a whole new level-- and if you've tried other forms of self-development and they haven't worked for you, perhaps this is just what your artistic soul is crying out for.
You deserve a FRESH start.
