About Jo

Jo Packham, creator / Editor-in-Chief of the best selling, award winning current magazines: WHERE WOMEN CREATE — Inspiring Work Spaces of Extraordinary Women and WHAT WOMEN CREATE — Inspiration for Your Imagination, and the past publications of WHERE WOMEN COOK and WHERE WOMEN CREATE WORK, has been a leading innovator in the handmade publishing market for more than 40 years.

Jo believes that we all have a story to tell and she also believes she is blessed to have it be her job to give a venue to those women, their stories, and their ideas; hence the current two magazine titles that she created and is publishing with Madavor Media. For the beauty, quality, content, and magnificent design of these magazines, Mr. Magazine has included all four of the titles (counted as one entry) into his Baker’s Dozen of the best new publications for 2018. February 2019 WWC was honored by Mr. Magazine and the MPA – the Association of Magazine Media — the HOTTEST MAGAZINE LAUNCHED in 2018. WWC was selected as #1 out of over 700 publications launched in 2018.

Her life has been a journey that seems as if it were taken straight from the pages of a storybook … the “Once upon a time” beginning”, the tragedies lived through the middle chapters, and hopefully the “ Happy Ever After” ending. She looks forward to the promises of tomorrow and is proud to say that every single day she is blessed to be able to do what she loves, that she is surrounded by family and friends whom she adores and respects, and that she is trusted enough to represent those whose passion is to create with their hands … whether it be art, business or food. She is a small town, home -grown girl who resides in Ogden, Utah.

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.

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. Check out my best-selling book with HarperCollins Leadership, Artpreneur, how to make money from your creativity, wherever books are sold. When I’m not in the studio, I split my time between New York City and a farmhouse in the country. 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

Always worth a listen
There are only two artists who I’ve found give consistently helpful advice, and Miriam is one of them. I find it really helpful that she covers both getting inspired and motivated to do art and also how to sell art. There are loads of books and webinars about how to paint, sculpt, but these two areas Miriam covers are the bits that surround that activity and that are the most difficult of all. She has interesting guests, too.”
