233: Leading with Your Inner Weirdo: A Conversation with Theresa Pridemore

2022 IP Podcast - Episode 233 - Theresa Pridemore - rectangle

with host artist Miriam Schulman


Embrace your inner weirdo and create beautiful art. The best art in this world is created by us weirdos. The word, weird, hasn’t always had negative connotations and carries so much more meaning that we give to it. 

This time around, Theresa Pridemore is interviewing me. Listen and get ready to feel charged to create the art that only you can.  

“When you’re embracing the weird you are embracing your destiny.” -Miriam Schulman 

Today I’m sharing the key ideas you need to embrace your inner weirdo and give space for all the weird creativity you have to come out. 

In this podcast, you will discover…

What we’re discussing: 

  • 9 steps you need to create your signature brand and style
  • Standing out is the key to getting noticed and distinguishing yourself
  • Don’t be afraid to amplify your imperfections and lean into your own style 

The idea for this conversation is directly from Chapter 6 of my newest book, Artpreneur, which is your guide to turning your creative ideas into a business that sustains the life you want to live. Nurturing your inner weirdo and giving it the space and opportunity to distinguish you is one of the biggest gifts you can give to yourself. 

You don’t have to be worried about getting it right all the time.  You don’t need to be consumed with people pleasing to the extent that you no longer have a voice or a style. 

“Give yourself permission to turn some people off.” – Theresa Pridemore

  1. This was a brilliant episode. It hit home in so many ways. It was a like receiving validation that I’m on right path and that could also be because I worked with Miriam in the Incubator. I was privy to the right information 😃

  2. Brilliant!!!! Thank you so much Miriam.
