Today, Patty talks with one of her good friends, Miriam Schulman. Miriam is an artist and the founder of The Inspiration Place, where she helps other artists learn how to profit from their passion or become better artists. Through online classes, business coaching programs, and a top-ranked podcast, she has helped thousands of artists around the world develop their skill sets and create more time and freedom to do what they love. Her signature coaching program, The Artist Incubator, helps artists go from “so-so” sales to sold-out collections.
Miriam grew up in poverty, and with the decision to make money as a motivating factor, she worked at a Wallstreet hedge fund. She shares her experience working there, the mafia-esque culture, and being surrounded by the “big swinging dicks of Wallstreet.” While working there, she had a nagging sense that there had to be something more to life, and how that eventually led to her being a self-described working artist.
In this episode, Miriam shares stories revolving around her new book ARTPRENEUR: The Step-by-Step Guide to Making a Sustainable Living from Your Creativity. How our fears and sense of self-preservation can hinder ourselves, utilizing her brain’s neurodivergence as a superpower, and the power of belief structured around Miriam’s very own “Belief Triad.”
Miriam and Patty also discuss the hero’s journey, and how in the process of discovering ourselves, we start with a comfortable safe place, then receive “the call” and eventually reach the point of no return.
This episode is a fun conversation on the life of an artist, shifting mindsets, and relatable stories that will make you think about your own journey.
