We’re diving deep into the mindset game with the fantastic Christine Gallagher. Marketing and self-doubt can be a real struggle for artists, and that’s where Christine’s wisdom comes in handy. We’re talking about affirmations, scripting, and simplifying your approach to marketing to achieve those big, satisfying results. So if you’ve ever felt like your self-belief could use a boost, or if marketing feels like a maze, stay tuned. Christine’s got some golden nuggets to share that might just change the way you approach your art business. Let’s dig in!

“So much of what makes us successful is the stories that we tell ourselves, the beliefs we have about ourselves, our self-concept and also what I call inner conversations, what we’re saying to ourselves.”- Christine Gallagher

In this podcast, you will discover…

  • Self-belief and self-concept are the foundations for overcoming self-doubt and fear. 
  • Powerful practices like affirmations and scripting can help rewire your thinking and allow you to visualize desired outcomes, making marketing efforts more effective.
  • Simplifying your marketing approach and focusing on a few key offers can lead to significant results, reducing overwhelm and making your art business journey more enjoyable.

“Talent will only take you so far. Strategy will only take you so far. You’ll sabotage yourself every single time if you don’t have the right mindset.”- Miriam Schulman

“If you don’t have some sort of practices sustaining you to stay in that place that is all about self-belief and self-concept, then the marketing’s gonna be harder.”- Christine Gallagher

About Christine

Speaker, trainer, bestselling author and award-winning business coach Christine Gallagher founded ShesGotClients.com in 2009, a company dedicated to teaching spiritual-minded coaches, experts, leaders and practitioners how to add $100k+ in new revenue (much of it recurring) with simplified marketing and intentional energy direction. And to keep most of that in PROFIT, while working less. She’s also the creator of the 90/10 Method.

Christine believes that when female entrepreneurs learn how to share their gifts and their message in a much bigger way by creating intentional, leveraged offers, they will not only dramatically elevate their expert status and enjoy more income, they also become a force for positive change in the world.

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.

Listener shout out of the week!

Icon with green headphones with red heart behind on the rightThis was amazing. I loved your guest, and you talking about how we don’t have to be doing everything on social media to sell art. I think for me trying to deal with everything on the technology would stop me from doing what I love, the art. I’ve been discouraged even thinking of all I would have to do to start up my art on line, and you both gave me other options. Thank you for sharing so much.
