247: Your Voice Matters

2023 IP Podcast - Episode 247 - Your Voice Matters - rectangle

with host artist Miriam Schulman


Have you ever encountered trolls and critics? In this day and age, anyone who puts anything of themselves out there can get criticized and receive negative comments. Even artists.  

This episode is inspired by one such troll. This is a response to a troll who said, “You have an ugly voice.”  

Negative comments aren’t about you. It’s a reflection of the person spreading negativity. 

Everyone who’s ever done anything significant has faced criticism. You can’t change that. The only thing you can do is decide whether you’ll let them affect you. Will you? 

“You have to love your voice, your style, and your art as it’s developing, as you’re uncovering it, as it is growing.” – Miriam Schulman 

In this podcast, you will discover…

In this short episode, these are the three points I want to leave you with: 

  • Marketing and mindset trump talent every time. 
  • Stay true to the authentic you. 
  • Find your voice, own, and express it. 

“Some people will find fault with you no matter what you do. But if they hate you for your uniqueness, at least they’re hating you for the right reasons.” – 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 am sooo glad you don’t vocal fry. So… I’ll take your loud NY voice any day sister! Also, your book is great so maybe tell her to read your book so she doesn’t have to hear anything different from her troll voice.
