094: The 4 Tendencies with Gretchen Rubin

with host artist Miriam Schulman

There’s no magic, one size fits all solution to being happier, healthier, more productive, more creative. We each have to figure it out for ourselves because we each have our own interests, our own values, our own temperament, our own tendency. Whatever works for us is the best way and the right way. In this episode, we’re talking all about “The 4 Tendencies”!

She has an enormous readership, both in print and online, and her books have sold 3.5 million copies worldwide, in more than thirty languages.

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 or become better artists. 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. I’d love to invite you to check out one of my free resources for art lovers (of every passion level) at schulmanart.com/freebies
