175: Master the Emotional Side of Goal Setting with Miriam Schulman

with host artist Miriam Schulman

We’re talking all about the emotional side of goal setting. When we turn the page in our calendar, or if you’re like me– you have a fresh new planner (or maybe more than one planner), and those unmarked calendar days stretch out ahead of us with beautiful white space. We know we can fill our days with anything and be anyone.

When you think about your goals and intentions for the year, instead of creating this vague idea of the habits you want to change, think instead of who you need to become.


In this podcast, you will discover…

  • Why I choose a word for the year (and sometimes a word for the day) and what word I selected for 2022
  • How focusing on how you want to feel will make a bigger impact
  • The reason you should hire a coach and why I hired experts (more than one) to help me reach a big goal in 2021
  • How surrounding yourself with people who are doing what you want to do will help you accomplish more
  • The way to develop an abundance mind-set, counteracting imposter syndrome

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.

  1. Wow!!! You have a lot to read there! I guess the thing that sticks to me the most is, I don’t “ever” believe I am good enough. I do so many paintings and crafts as well as making
    Jewelry and soap but I’m just not
    Proud of my work. Any words
    Of wisdom to help that mindset get
    Better? Bev

  2. Hi Miriam I have chosen the word “courage” for this year and I will be looking at butting successful people around me
