268 Curate an Experience for Your Guests – Miriam Schulman

Summary

Is it possible for great leadership to happen by accident? Today’s guest doesn’t believe so. She believes that curating a powerful experience for your guests is the best way to lead and influence others—whether it’s a luncheon, event, or other setting. 

Miriam Schulman, a watercolor and mixed media artist for over twenty years, is founder of the Inspiration Place, an online art class site. Schulman abandoned a hedge fund career after witnessing the devastation of 9-11 to work on her art full time. Rejecting the starving artist myth, her watercolor and mixed media paintings have been seen on NBC, Amazon Prime, published in art magazines & home decor books, and collected worldwide. She has been published in art magazines such as Art of Man, Art Journaling Magazine by Stampington, and is also a regular contributor to Professional Artist magazine. She is a host of The Inspiration Place, the number one podcast for art lovers who want to learn how to market their art with courage.

We’ll explore: 

  • Why all leadership is “thought leadership.”
  • The story behind Miriam’s luncheons that bring interesting people together.
  • How to introduce your idea in a social setting.
  • The power of leading with intention and curating a great experience for your guests.
  • How to teach someone leadership.
  • The importance of the emotional component in leadership and influence.
