190: Seasons of Creativity with Chanti Zak and Miriam Schulman

2022 IP Podcast - Episode 190 - Chanti Zak - rectangle

with host artist Miriam Schulman

As frustrating as it may be, you cannot be in a creative state of flow 365 days a year. When you identify as a creative, that can feel like a heartbreak and a bit of an identity crisis, and yet it’s a perfectly normal part of life. 

You won’t always feel like you’re in perfect balance, and there are days that we all feel hopeless and think, I’ve lost my creativity for good (being dramatic time to time is totally fine). Understanding that your personal life will go through seasons, your creativity will go through seasons, and your business will also go through seasons will allow you to manage yourself in these seasons much better. 

Chanti Zak is a growth coach and consultant, and the founder of the Empathy Marketing Ecosystem & Agency. She joins me to simplify the most common seasons we experience, explains what you can expect in these seasons, and shares how you can better manage yourself and your success as a creative through all of your seasons. 


In this podcast, you will discover…

Chanti’s framework of seasons in business for creative endeavors: 

  • Fallow season of hopelessness and the gifts it bears 
  • Fertile season of new beginnings and perspectives that bring energy and inspiration 
  • Flourish season to reap the rewards of the fallow and fertile seasons 

A much-needed bonus you don’t want to miss in this episode are tips that Chanti and I both share for how to receive abundance. It’s something many of us struggle with and these are tips you can implement right away! 

“Whatever season you are in, you’re in the right place, roll with it and know that change is the only constant.”

-Chanti Zak

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.

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, Artpreneur, is scheduled to be released in February 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. 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

Stumbled upon Miriam’s podcast, interesting and inspiring. As a long time artist, who just in the past year is now been working getting my business off the ground, and feeling very overwhelmed with all the techy and business side of art, I found Miriam to be uplifting and inspirational. A welcome influence and change of pace.
