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. 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

Listener shout out of the week!

“Amazing episode
You did it again! The podcasts from 2019 talking about being a mom helping your art! I’m a mom of 3 and I’ve been saying, I need to get more commissions from people I don’t know, that episode showed me just how wrong I was. I need more friends, that is the best marketing possible. Thank you so much! Pricing art can be so hard sometimes. I had never heard of the linear method, that seems so much better than the square inch method. Easier to adjust up and down based on experience. Can’t wait for more education, heading over to find more episodes!”

  1. Dear Miriam,
    This podcast resonated with me sooo much…especially when you were describing the “passionista” (spelling). Well, all three hit home with me. The one about perfectionism hit me between the eyes. Because of my “perfectionism,” I find myself exactly as you described: comparison, wondering how others “made it,” and afraid to start anything for fear of failure. BUT, because I have been SO involved with all of your classes and the Incubaor Matermind?, I have grown so much, however, I still am finding that I doubt myself far too much. What you had to say today was pure inspiration, and I am so lookng forward to reading your book! Thank yiu for your superb podcasts. They help me a great deal, and keep me on the right track!
