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 in February 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!
“I enjoy your podcasts. I really related to alter egos. I don’t have my own style, so I enjoyed that episode also. I have worked at the same company for over 41 years, so I don’t even have my identity. My husband and three children shaped my ‘off’ time. I am retiring in 6 months, so I will revisit your episodes and take off my training wheels and develop myself. I’m listening while typing and just heard about the man who waited, retired and died. Hope that’s not me!!!!”
