115: How to Choose an Artist Mastermind

with host artist Miriam Schulman

Today, we’re talking all about what to look for if you want to join an artist mastermind group for 2021.


In this podcast, you will discover…

Every artist should be in a mastermind. The term mastermind was coined by Napoleon Hill in 1935 who wrote the book, “Think and Grow Rich,” and concluded that the most successful people were a part of a mastermind. A mastermind is a peer-to-peer mentoring group of individuals who meet on a regular basis, in person or virtually, to push each other to work to their highest potential, and hold each other accountable. The most successful artists throughout time have also been part of a mastermind, even if they didn’t use that word. This episode talks about the 10 questions you should ask before choosing a mastermind group and what to look out for.

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.
