218: How to Use Your Natural Genius to Sell More Art with Anna Tsui and Miriam Schulman

2022 IP Podcast - Episode 218 - Anna Tsui - rectangle (1)

with host artist Miriam Schulman


If you’re feeling like a fish out of water when it comes to sales and marketing, you’re not alone! Sales makes many people uncomfortable, but what if increasing your sales was possible without focusing on selling?  

What if you could use your genius, your natural enthusiasm and flow state to sell more art?  

Anna Tsui is an intuitive business coach, writer and international speaker that helps people unlock their genius flow. She’s worked with Harvard University, Boston Business Women, and even the Boston Police Department, teaching others how to let their genius fuel their business and success is her superpower. 

In this podcast, you will discover…

In this episode Anna unpacks so much wisdom about how to operate within your genius flow: 

  • How to identify your innate genius 
  • Approaching sales from your energetic genius rather than ego 
  • Leading with your inspiration and love for connection first over sales (for now) 

Tsui shares how some of the practices you’ve been taught   may actually be closing down your genius. Sometimes we have an aversion to sales and marketing because we haven’t developed the muscle to show up as our most authentic selves .  Anna shows us how to connect and energize the space you’re in even more. 

Instead of stressing yourself out over more followers and more emails, focus on people and building genuine connections. Lead with curiosity and give yourself permission to not think about sales for a moment by creating more space and opportunity for your genius to lead and inspire others. 

“Our genius is the thing we discount the most, but it’s also the thing that people will pay the most for, and that makes us truly unique.” -Anna Tsui

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
