200: Radical Reinvention with Miriam Schulman

2022 IP Podcast - Episode 200 - Radical Reinvention - rectangle

with host artist Miriam Schulman

Reinventing yourself can sound intimidating, it may sound like betrayal on some level, and it can even feel inauthentic to some. To others, reinvention is an opportunity for rebirth and realizing your full potential. 

People often reinvent themselves to let go of what no longer serves them, get to new heights of success, and shed what they don’t like about themselves. Reinvention is something you can totally embrace as an artist and a creative as you grow in skill and move through different phases of your life. 

“Commit to reinvent yourself, to know that real growth happens in a place of discomfort.” Les Brown 

In this episode, I’m sharing my story of radical reinvention. Moving several times in my childhood created the desire, the need, and the opportunity to reinvent who I was and how I was showing up for others, and most importantly for myself. 


In this podcast, you will discover…

Reinvention is a tool available to you at any time: 

  • Declaring yourself an artist and believing it for yourself 
  • Embracing your inner weirdo and not vilifying what makes you different 
  • Navigating the different phases of life, pain, and discomfort 

“This new identity explained my unique ability to look at ordinary things and see something that others didn’t.” -Miriam Schulman

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. I listened to your podcast today and it was inspiring. I have always been artistic and crafty. I been into my art and “hobby’s” for as long as I can remember but have never thought about taking my Art farther and really do anything with it until recently.
    Your podcast was very inspiring listening to the changes you’ve went through in life and what you have made out of them. I look forward to listening to more of them.

  2. While working in my studio I binge-listen Miriam’s podcast. So inspiring and fun to listen to! Briliant NY accent and wit. The way you adept to the guest and share your personal anekdotes and knowledge is wonderfull. Did I mention fun to listen to?

  3. Thanks for sharing your story! I have reinvented myself as well and your story resonated with me so much. As always, your podcasts episodes are very inspiring and they leave me thinking long time after I finish them.

  4. I really appreciated this podcast about reinvention. I have degrees in psychology and always feel eh saying I am a psychologist, but easily call myself an artist even when I have no degree and may not be doing any art. Making stuff was my first love – preschool home with mom starting the day with crafts with Cap’t Kangaroo and crew. In kindergarten a told me she was abused and I told her she could come to my house. I took her home. I got in trouble from the teacher, but not my mom and dad. I appreciated your story while out walking and I was simultaneously also remembering my very long journey to here – finally, the merging of my work in the systems to end child abuse and my art. Congratulations on show 200! That is amazing accomplishment.
