In this podcast, you will discover…

  • How training as a pilates instructor gave me the skills to sell art
  • Why it’s hard to create a new identity while you’re still living in the old one

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. 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.

  1. Hello Miriam!
    I love your podcast! I tried the link Shulmanart.com/.eic and I repeatedly get someone named Igor Shulman. Not sure if any other listeners had this problem. I’m trying to sign up for your small group coaching session application. Would there be another link I could try?
    Thank you!
