Transform your art business by implementing the 5-part Passion to Profit Framework so that you can finally earn a sustainable income from your art (even if you hate posting on social media)
Hi, I'm Miriam Schulman and back in the 90’s you’d find me at the World Trade Center in my Ann Taylor suits. I loved the income and lifestyle but felt disconnected to my life purpose. So when 911 happened, I knew that I couldn’t go back to that world.
Yet, I still didn’t believe that I could make a full time living from art. At first, I painted on the side and taught Pilates at New York Sports Club. While working for the gym, I was introduced to selling strategies that the club wanted me to use to sell personal training packages.
It was then that I had my "aha moment" and realized that these time tested selling strategies could be used to sell anything.
Over the last twenty years, I've built a multiple 6-figure art business and I want to show you how I did it. That’s why I created The "Passion to Profit" planning framework to help artists develop their businesses - so that they can have the time and freedom to create art and do what they love.
Let's work together to build your email subscriber list, attract high end commissions, and get MORE of your work into the world.
Not only will you overcome overwhelm but you'll gain practical strategies and a clear way forward for implementing them.
Plus, you’ll get a backstage pass to how I run my 6-figure art business. Learn what really works to sell your art and fill your art classes from an artist who's actually doing it.
We'll dig into what's working now in the world of selling art following the 5-part Proven Passion-to-Profit framework.
Consistently build a body of work. Just because you’re marketing your art doesn’t mean you should sacrifice sacred studio time. You CAN have both!
This is one of the biggest sticking points for artists at all stages of their business (myself included). The key to raising your prices is to communicate with confidence, (even when you don’t feel it), and I’ll show you how to “price for profit” at premium prices.
Build a list of people who want what you've got, and are prepared to pay for top dollar. Building a list of collectors who love you and your art is easier than you think. (without expensive or complicated advertising)
Now that you have a collector base, this is the step-by-step plan to turn them into repeat collectors and raving fans who will tell their friends about you. When you develop a sales and marketing plan, you’ll know exactly what to say so that your ideal collectors joyfully whip out their credit cards for your art.
How to get more done (with more focus) in less time. I’ll give you the exact processes and tools to quickly get organized and stop spinning! Plus, with a few quick handy time management techniques, everything will move faster. Imagine going from standing at the sink for hours to getting a dishwasher for the first time!
This is your chance to get your questions answered and ultimately, never get stuck again.
Bring us your challenges and revelations. Ensure that your most important projects move ahead.

"Thanks to the Artist Incubator program I now sell out 90% of my collections and am on my way to a sustainable living as a full-time artist."
~Dawn Trimble, Atlanta, GA
All the time you were thinking about it, they were doing it!
"My business has grown exponentially, and I've doubled my prices.
I believe in myself more, and I can talk about my art with no apologies and understanding that I know my worth as an artist."
~Rachel La Roux from Muntinlupa City, Philippines
The Artist Incubator experience isn't about piling more on your plate or procrasti-learning — this about taking inspired action and doing the right things that will actually make a huge difference to help you easily sell more art.
"Before joining the program, I felt hopeless because had no system to market and sell my art. My art business looks like a running machine now. Each week I make progress on building my inventory, sharing my story, and gathering people that are interested in what I'm doing. We all deserve a little bit of magic and now I'm helping to bring that into the world. I'm on fire right now because I know what it takes to make this career happen and it's liberating."
~Peter Bragino from Amityville, NY
"I booked by biggest commission to date"
"I sold a canvas print for $200, and then I booked my biggest commission to date. I booked a $3,500 Commission. He actually booked $4,400 total because he also ordered a 12x12 pet portrait and a 12x12 painting of a wolf for two Christmas presents as well. And it was the same size as one of the bigger pieces I've previously painted, but I charged $2,000 more this time."
- Kayla Thompson West Fork, Arkansas
“One of the best decisions I've ever made for my art business”
"Before joining the Artist Incubator, I wanted to raise my prices and sell larger artwork for more money. The Artist Incubator has helped me have the confidence to do that. I'm a lot more confident now about my pricing and really owning my pricing. I get a lot of good value out of the mindset sessions with Shaun Roney because it really exposes the limiting mindsets that I had about being an artist and selling art. And it's really nice to have someone double checking your thought processes and expose the gaps in the logic. I would say that this is one of the best decisions I've ever made for my art business."
- Camille Gerrick - Charlottesville, Virginia
"You achieve so much"
"I'm actually moving towards my goals. They're not what other people think I should do.
You can achieve so much when you're actually focused with steps to follow."
- Vicky Beths - Goombungee, QLD
"The program elevated my collectors"
"Since I've been in the Artist Incubator, I've noticed that the quality of my followers, subscribers, and collectors has elevated.
The Artist Incubator has given me the tools, the support, the encouragement, and the real-time talk to get there. I'm so incredibly thankful that I chose to do it."
- Dawn Trimble - Atlanta, GA
“Believing in Myself!”
"Because of this Incubator, I am believing in myself for the first time, especially as an artist, but most importantly, as a person. That's worth more than anything."
- Deb Lund - Billings, Montana
"Made over $14,000 from my open studio"
“I just wanted to tell you how successful our Open Studio was and just sing your praises for all the things that I did. And I kept thinking, Oh, this is what Miriam would do. You would be very proud. We made $14,000 before we even added up the totals of how many people want puppy portraits. I did all your strategies that you taught me, and you would be very proud.”
- Ginny LaMont Naegeli - Franklin, MI
"Before the Incubator, I didn't really have a clue of priorities. I was totally overwhelmed. The program helped me figure out what needs to be done first and what to do next. Having really practical advice for my type of business has made all the difference.
"People are taking me seriously. Now they respect that I'm a committed, serious artist and a real business person."
~Natasha Papousek from Lemon Grove, CA
Now, I know this might feel like a big decision, so I’ve got a fun (and effective) way to help you answer the questions you might have.
If you can check off at least 3 of the boxes below, you’re ready to do this!
▢ You're already selling your art but you’d like to be charging more and making sales more consistently or perhaps you're just starting out.
▢ You’re a DIY type of guy or gal who doesn't need a lot of hand holding to get things done.

▢ You’re proud of the art that you create but you might be lacking confidence when it comes to selling it (especially if you want to charge premium prices)
▢ You understand that success doesn’t happen overnight and anything worth doing will take some time commitment - and you’re excited to learn new strategies to manage your time better so that you can get more done.
▢ You would consider yourself a person who enjoys learning and growing and you’re open to learning new concepts and pushing out of your comfort zone.

“I'm not the same person that I was before"
"There's been so much change within me over these past 6 months.
I'm not the same person that I was when I started.
And I'm very, very grateful. It's changed my life."
- Nicoline Mann - Nanaimo, Canada
"Already passed my income goal"
I was working five to seven days a week on my other job for the last six months, and I've still by far had my most successful year I've ever had. I've already passed my income goal just by implementing as much as I could in the time that I had while I was working 60 hours a week on another job.
- Elizabeth Mordensky - Gainsville, VA
“Record breaking sales"
"Before the Incubator, I didn't know which way to turn, I didn't know anything about online marketing. My shows had been cancelled and I was really just overwhelmed by the future.
In the past few months, I have had record breaking sales at my art shows. I've had record breaking orders from the galleries that I've been delivering my artwork to, and galleries are ordering more art from me and the results have been fabulous."
- Linda Doucette - Millville, PA
~ John Barrymore
"This program is focused on what I need"
"Well, before the Incubator, I didn't really have a clue of priorities. I should say I knew what needed to be done, but they all had equal importance and they were all big. And I was, like, totally overwhelmed that... The program helped me figure it out. Okay, this is what needs to be done first. This is what needs to be done next. Having really practical advice has made all the difference. Practical advice for my type of business. So I've taken other business classes. This is a lot more focused on me and what I need.
My family is taking me seriously now. They really didn't believe that I could do this. But now I think they respect me. And they know that I actually am committed and serious and a real artist and a real business person. People are taking me seriously."
- Natasha Papousek - Lemon Grove, CA
"My email list exploded"
"Before I started, I guess I was just like all over the place. I had not much of a direction.
The program helped me kind of stop and focus on one thing at a time.
The email list just exploded: it went from 60 people to over 600 in less than a month."
- Simone Sloan - San Diego, CA
Q: Is this group for me?
A: If you're 100% committed to creating a profitable art business.
If you have a strong desire to contribute to the group and bring your unique voice and talents to the table…
And if you recognize that the fastest path to get from where you are now to where you want to go is to work DIRECTLY with an artist who’s walked that path and had success…
Q: What kinds of things can you help me with?
A: There are 5 major things that I’ve done over the years in my business that are responsible for my success.
There’s a specific process to follow, there’s a framework! And it's all about PLANNING!!
And because I have experience actually implementing each of these things, I can walk you through exactly how to do them.
Q: How do you help build confidence?
A: Mindset coaching is baked in throughout the program, but we also recently added Shaun Roney who is a certified life coach that specializes in ADHD.
Q: What kinds of artists are in the group?
A: We’ve artists who are portrait artists, muralists, fiber artists, floral painters and more.
What I've noticed is that many of the same things that hold artists back in the beginning are the same things that make other artists plateau which is why no matter where you’re at in your art business, no matter what you’re working on, you can find someone who has been there, exactly where you are right now, someone who’s done it, that you can get advice and help from.
What I love about the group is that people learn from each other.
That “cross-pollination” of ideas and strategies that happens when you get so many diverse people in a (virtual) room is what makes this group so unique.
In fact, the more diverse the artists are in the group, the better.
And the amazing thing is that everyone contributes their questions, expertise, their opinions, and their knowledge to make the group better. (you learn as much from each other's questions and problems as you do from their successes)
Ready to join us?
Q: What kinds of results are artists getting?
Q: How long is the program?
A: Building an art career does not happen overnight, that's why you get group coaching for a full year. You can do incredible things in a short amount of time.
I invest 100% in coaching you and the artists in my Artist Incubator program.
This is not for dipping your toe in, this is for you only if you’re prepared to make that same kind of commitment to yourself.
If you want this to be the year that you step it up and make that leap, that big monumental jump, that’s what this is for.
Q: Do you meet live?
A: Yes, you'll meet live with Shaun Roney three times a month and with me once a month.
All recorded sessions are placed in a password-protected classroom for you to review.
Q: What’s the difference between this version of the program and the Artist Incubator Mastermind?
A: The Artist Incubator includes everything you need to accelerate your art sales, including group coaching, live monthly calls, mindset coaching, strategy lessons, and everything you need to run a successful art business.
The Artist Incubator Mastermind is for artists who feel like they need MORE access to me, including live weekly coaching and regular 1:1 calls. For artists who are ready to get more personalized help and attention, the Mastermind might be for you. Acceptance to the Mastermind is by application only, and it's a competitive process. To see if you qualify, click here.
Q: Do you offer a guarantee or a refund?
A: We want you to be delighted with all of The Inspiration Place programs. We know that if you implement these strategies in the Artist Incubator Program, you'll make art sales. That's why we give you a full 14 days from the date of purchase to try the program. To be eligible for the refund, you must send your request to support@theInspirationPlace.net during the refund period.
We hope you agree that this policy gives you enough time to figure out if the Artist Incubator is a good fit for you.
Q: Why don't I get lifetime access?
A: The Artist Incubator is designed as a coaching program rather than a fixed curriculum. Artists get the best results when they are fully present and take action when I'm available for support and troubleshooting.
In addition, the curriculum is always being updated and added to so in fairness to our current members as well as to make sure you get the best results we do not offer continued access when you're no longer an active member of the program.
Members who wish to renew will be offered a favorable alumni rate and/or special bonuses.
Q: When does my access begin?
A: You gain instant access to the library of all recorded masterclass training.

A: I understand that signing up for the Artist Incubator is a big decision and you may have lots of questions about whether or not it's right for you.
After learning all that is included, you may still have questions. I want to see all the artists who sign up succeed but also feel really good about their decision to enroll.
That's why I'm offering *FREE calls to answer your questions about the program: Click here to schedule a call with me
These calls are available after you've attended the free How to Sell More Art masterclass.
“My business has grown exponentially”
"I learned a lot from the mindset sessions with Shaun Roney. I think that's what really helped me.
In six months, my business has grown exponentially. I doubled my prices. I've changed a lot. I was so unsure of myself. I questioned whether I should get things out there.
I'm stronger and I believe in myself more, and I can talk about myself and my art with no apologies."
- Rachel Le Roux Muntinlupa City, Philippines
“I made £16K on my first art course launch”
"When I first came across Miriam, I was confused about where I was going and what I needed to do. When Miriam stepped in, I just felt so much at ease and more confident in moving forward because she was right there by my side and helping me to figure out what to do next. With the help and support of Miriam, I made £16K on my first course launch and built up my email list.
In the last year, my business has literally quadrupled and Miriam has been a key person in that journey for me. I’ll be so forever grateful for all of her willingness to share her knowledge and expertise. I had my first £10k month last month.
Doing the program gave me the confidence to actually price my work at the appropriate price. One of the things that I learned was that investing in yourself is as important as investing in a ton of new pants or a new easel or a new piece of equipment.
The investment that you make on yourself and your personal growth will affect the business more than any other thing."
- Ciara Gilmore Down, Northern Ireland
