with host artist Miriam Schulman

Today, I’ve invited Anna Tsui, founder of the Intuitive Business School, to join me to talk about using your fear as a catalyst to drive your success as an artist! We’ll discuss the fears of putting yourself out there by offering your art for sale, and we’ll also discuss overcoming your fears to create in the first place.


In this podcast, you will discover…

  • How our deepest fears hold us back
  • How to take fear out of the captain’s seat
  • How to be guided by the light of our purpose and creative expression 
  • Why your struggle is also your strength

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.
