  • Create work-life balance by managing your priorities and setting manageable goals

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.

Including art.

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.

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.

Artpreneur is the artist handbook for passion makers who dream of evolving into passion professionals but are stuck. This book provides inspiring stories and proof that show that the artist's life can be both profitable and sustainable. I urge you to gamble on yourself, emphasizing that a confident mindset is the first step to developing a life of creative and financial freedom. Artpreneur combines a left-brain approach with traditional marketing methods that pave a clear path for success.
