234: She Builds with Jadah Sellner and Miriam Schulman

2022 IP Podcast - Episode 234 - Jadah Sellner - rectangle

with host artist Miriam Schulman

You can build a successful business around your art and creative work without sacrificing what matters to you. Relationships, time for yourself, and space for creativity don’t need to be lost to hustle culture and burnout. 

My guest today, Jadah Sellner, has built several successful companies and has experienced the burnout that is not sustainable. Now she helps women unleash their creativity, intuition and purpose through her books, her podcast, and coaching.  

In this episode, we’re sharing just a few of the many golden lessons Jadah has in her latest book called She Builds. She values allowing yourself to follow your own intuitive path to create and build your own meaningful life. 

“ Give ourselves permission to build a business from a place of love.” -Jadah Sellner 

In this podcast, you will discover…

Lessons we discuss from Jadah’s book: 

  • Move from strictly obsessive passion into a harmonious passion to avoid burnout 
  • Toxic productivity and that constant feel of not enoughness are signs to slow down
  • 3 kinds of mastermind support group buckets you need to excel in your journey
  • Writing a letter to your future yourself is meant to set the vision and intention  

There are so many more lessons we didn’t have the time to cover. She shares her wisdom and insights into things like high functioning anxiety, the cycle of fear, having calendar bodyguards and more in her book. The narrative around hustle culture is that it’s sexy and something to strive for and wear like a badge of honor. Jadah is breaking that narrative apart and refocusing on how to create a fuller, more meaningful life with room for success and love. 

“Make space and time to dream about what it is that you want to create.” – Jadah Sellner

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.
