with host artist Miriam Schulman
Today, we’re talking all about my metamorphosis from a stay-at-home mom to a full time working artist!
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
- Why selling art is no different than selling anything else so that you can learn these skills
- 046: Breaking Free of the Golden Handcuffs
- Tom Hopkins – “The Certifiable Salesperson: The Ultimate Guide to Help Any Salesperson Go Crazy with Unprecedented Sales”
- Lisa Congdon – “Find Your Artistic Voice: The Essential Guide to Working Your Creative Magic”
About the host, Miriam Schulman
In case we haven’t met yet, I’m a watercolor and mixed media artist. My art has been featured in numerous publications such as Somerset Studio, and I’m the founder of The Inspiration Place where I give my students stepping stones to create beautiful art as well as the emotional support they need to stay inspired. See the art I create at art.SchulmanArt.com or learn how to paint with me at TheInspirationPlace.net

People. Love. Pets.
💜 It’s a special kind of love that only a true animal lover can understand.
.....Your pets are like your children.
.....You think about them throughout the day.
.....You wonder what they’re doing when you’re not around.
.....You find yourself getting funny looks from non-pet-people when you talk about your pet.
🐕 So why not take some time to learn to paint pets?
🎁 Imagine this December you’ll be giving pet paintings as gifts to your friends and family too.
I can’t wait to see what you paint!
