064: Dreams Not Regrets

with host artist Miriam Schulman

Today, we’re talking all about NOT letting your dreams turn into regrets. This episode was inspired by a quote I heard recently (actually, there are multiple versions floating around out there). Troy Dumnais said it this way: ”you don’t get old until you replace your dreams with regrets.” There’s a similar version of the quote by John Barrymore. Part of the mission of this podcast is to INSPIRE you to stay true to your dreams and NEVER give up on them. To NEVER let that dream turn into regrets because you’re always taking inspired action.


In this podcast, you will discover…

  • Why you’re never too old, and it’s never too late!
  • You don’t have to live in New York to make a living as an artist.
  • How limiting beliefs are killing your dreams.

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. Great podcast today! The ideas about what is and is not appropriate for someone of a certain age are just hogwash;) Yet the old ideas persist because they were drilled into us from a very young age:some of those outmoded ideas remain in my mind but they`re very small now, thank goodness!

  2. This was very inspirational. I was one that focused on raising my family at a young age. Now at 53 yrs old and kids all grown up and having 6 grandchildren. I’ve felt a little lost but I came upon your site and what you offer in Pet Portraits and I feel I have purpose again and can focus on me and finding my passion again. Thank you for enlightening me that it doesn’t matter what age you are!!!!
