Welcome to the Smart Art Business Podcast hosted by art business coach Rachel Wilkins. The Smart Art Business Podcast aims to help visual artists and creative entrepreneurs grow and sustain a successful business. Featuring tangible advice and inspiring interviews with artists and industry experts, you will learn how to brand, market, and sell your art the smart way.


In this episode, our host Rachel Wilkins speaks with life coach, Dr Gigi Arnaud on changing conditioned mindsets, negative and limiting beliefs in relation to neuroscience and psychology. They discuss comparison paralysis, ways to get aligned with the authentic you and practical ways to apply mindset principles and reprogram your own behaviour to create your version of success.



Dr. Gigi Arnaud is an award-winning, NYC-based MIndset Coach/Trauma Healing Coach, Hypnotherapist and Speaker. For over thirty years, she worked as a dentist in her own private practice and 20 years ago, also decided to become a certified life coach and hypnotherapist.
For so many years, she had been that smiling person who looked sunny and successful on the outside, yet was quietly stuck and suffering on the inside. Through her own discovery and years of training and treatment (ie: coaching, therapy), she did the work to change from the inside out and unlock the traps inside her mind.  Now, she helps others do the same and change their negative and unhelpful thought patterns to those more aligned with WHO they authentically are, WHAT they truly want, and HOW to get there (action plan).
She uses her unique ‘Art & Science’ background (she is also a painter and writer), intuition, and practical tools to help her clients hear their OWN unique voices so that they finally flourish, in their personal and professional lives.
Dr. Gigi’s mission is to transform your thinking to transform your life, become the real YOU, and thrive!
