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 or become better artists. 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!

Inspired by THIS place! ☆☆☆☆☆ I can’t believe it took me so long to find my way here. This podcast is going to replace so many others that repeat topics and keep on interviewing one another like some strange mutual admiration society. Miriam is a breath of fresh air and I am binging her episodes all day while I paint. Her realistic feedback on topics and her openness is refreshing and authentic. I even went online and got your three day workshop and am working on that starting today. Miriam is generous with her time too. I’m very impressed. Give this a listen. You just might find your tribe!

1 thought on “308: Late Bloomers of the Art World”

  1. This is the first podcast I’ve heard. So inspiring and affirming. I’m 77 and getting back to painting after decades, so these women give me hope. I’m going to buy some much larger canvases. I’ve had trouble with patriarchal men (and the women who buckle under) most of my life. The struggle, however, must continue. The good men are worth knowing and keeping in our lives.
