The Inspiration Place


Whether you’re looking for inspiration for your art or understand how to profit from it, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll learn the practical strategies you need to learn to sell your art plus develop a confident mindset in order to succeed. Not only is profiting from your passion possible but it’s also common. We dive into topics such as social media marketing, selling art online as well as shifting your mindset to banish your inner critic and overcome impostor syndrome and beat starving artist syndrome to the curb. Professional artist Miriam Schulman of speaks to top marketing experts like Amy Porterfield, Gretchen Rubin, Suzy Ashworth, and leaders in the art space such as Ashley Longshore, Lilla Rogers, Lisa Congdon, and Austin Kleon.

What we’re unpacking in this episode:

I share a story about how the host shared her art collection with me, and it’s a great example you don’t want to miss.
