080: Step Zero + Owning the Female Gaze

with host artist Miriam Schulman

I spend a lot of time talking to artists. I talk to them inside my private small group The Artist Incubator, which is my program for artists who want to make a living with their art. I talk to art students inside the Inspired Insiders’ Club, which is for those who want to become better artists. I also talk with artists who have taken advantage of my free Passion to Profit strategy calls.

AND the biggest question I’ve been getting lately is HOW exactly I got started in the very beginning of selling art – not generally, but specifically. I’ll be sharing stories of the first time I took money for my art as a student in college.


In this podcast, you will discover…

  • What Step Zero looks like and how to get started
  • How I first took money for my art as a student in college
  • How to be empowered with choice and owning the female gaze

About the host, Miriam Schulman

In case we haven’t met yet, I’m Miriam Schulman, Chief Inspiration Officer of The Inspiration Place. I inspire art-lovers to reconnect with their creativity, learn new skills and techniques, and profit from their art. After witnessing the 9/11 terrorist attacks, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Rejecting the starving artist myth, my paintings have been seen on NBC, published in art magazines & home décor books, and collected worldwide.

Listener shout out of the week!

“Here you go again. I am always so happy to hear what you have to say. #71 was life changing. Not only did I relate to your kitty but the message to listen to intentions instead of assuming what others are thinking really hit home. I am going to listen more and be more aware of what others true intentions. Always inspirational and encouraging and I cant wait to get started on my next project! Thank you thank you for being you!!”
