145: Decision Drama

with host artist Miriam Schulman

Today, we’re talking all about making decisions.


In this podcast, you will discover…

  • Why making decisions is so hard.
  • Why “I’ll think about it” doesn’t work.
  • Why becoming MORE DECISIVE saves you time, increases your confidence, and ultimately helps you sell more art. (Whaaat?! Yes, it does!)

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.

After witnessing 9/11, I abandoned a lucrative hedge fund job to work on my art full time. Since then, my art and story have been featured in major publications including Forbes, What Women Create, 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, Artpreneur, is scheduled to be released January 31, 2023. (SchulmanArt.com/book) When I’m not in the studio, you can find me hanging out with my husband, adult kids, and a tuxedo cat named Ebony.

Listener shout out of the week!

I have been listening to your podcast for the past month or so everyday at work. I started from your first episode and currently in the middle of episode 60 “The Art of Receiving” with Patty Lennon. I was laughing because you guys were saying that nobody under 40 listens to your podcast, and maybe some 30 year old’s. I am 22 years old, and think your podcast is pretty amazing and has helped me as an artist just from listening. Thank you for putting your voice along with other artists voices on all these different platforms for people to find. It is very inspirational, and I feel like you have answered so many questions I have had that I thought were only my problem, not common problems every artist has. I will always follow and continue your podcast, and already am not looking forward to catching up with your current episodes, since that will mean I will be out of episodes to listen to all day at work. Thanks and have a fabulous day!”
