Are your brand values sending the right signals by attracting those who resonate with your beliefs and repel those who don’t? Join me today as I explore the impact of brand values on your creative business success. Discover how embracing your values can create a stronger, more authentic connection with your audience, and learn how to shape a brand that truly reflects your core beliefs.

“As I add people to my team, it’s been really obvious to me that it’s important for me to communicate my brand values.”- Miriam Schulman

In this podcast, you will discover…

  • Prioritizing employee well-being and work-life balance in your art business fosters a positive work environment and leads to more engaged and motivated team members.
  • The significance of creating exceptional customer experiences and investing in tools and resources that cater to diverse needs.
  • Artists can create a strong and authentic connection with their audience, attract like-minded individuals, and build a thriving art business that reflects their core beliefs and values.

“I really want to attract the people who share similar values to me. And actually, I want to repel people who didn’t like, for example, my nods to progressive politics or my commitment to diversity, or recognizing that the patriarchy does play a role in the art world.”- Miriam Schulman

“Successful people are willing to do things that unsuccessful people aren’t, and part of that is willing to do things that might fail.”- 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. I’d love to invite you to check out one of my free resources for art lovers (of every passion level) at
