"I hope you go out and let stories that are life happen to you, and that you work with those stories - not someone else's - and that you water them with your blood and your tears and your laughter until they bloom, until you yourself bloom. That's the work. The only work."
Clarissa Pinkola Estés, from "Women Who Run With The Wolves"
FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR
The decision to start my own business was already made 7 years ago during my master studies at London College of Fashion. But as with all things in life, they only happen when the time is right and we have done the necessary inner work. So I decided to take on a full-time position and move from London to Berlin, where I still live and work today.
After four agency years at Refinery29, where I worked as Creative Director, leading and producing creative campaigns for big global lifestyle brands such as Nike, adidas or Lancôme, I was more and more driven towards change.
My part-time training to become a systemic coach supported me a lot during that time and served like a true catalyst to what I really wanted: work more freely, self-determined and combine all the areas I love. Coaching has been a fundamental part of my life ever since.
With Wild Women Studios, I get to connect all areas of interest that really feel like me: coaching and branding, inner work and outer work, I get to combine psychology, strategy and design, depth and aesthetics and I can be the multi-passionate visionary I am.
In doing so, I also get to help visionaries like you re-design their life and career, find the (professional) sweet spot and make it visible on the outside through branding and creative self-expression - as an entrepreneur with your own brand or as an employee looking to build your personal brand, but most importantly, from woman to woman. Magical things happen when women honestly connect and support each other. At the same time I am here to support women working for established lifestyle brands and forward-thinking companies with their concept and campaign creation or as a speaker to collaboratively shape a new, more diverse narrative that strengthens your brand communication and that truly empowers us as women and as a society.
We all feel the consequences of a patriarchal structures, no matter what gender we define ourselves as. For me, it's not about fighting against something, it's about standing up for something more desirable and creating your own authentic space in a dysfunctional system, making yourself internally strong so that, step by step, we are able to bring positive change to outdated structures together, becoming true role models, inspiring others to change the paradigm with us.

Raluca Andreea Hartea
COLOR CONSULTANT, FOUNDER RAH COLOURS
Andreea is one of the creative collaborators and founder of RAH Color Consulting, a colour consulting studio that prioritizes authenticity and authentic living, creating experience and narratives that improve people's personal connections with their surroundings through colour. Colour is a powerful medium that influences emotions, preferences and decision making. The color of a product subconsciously influences the buying decision by 84.7% in a positive or negative way. Andreea's background lies in art, architecture and psychology, thus she treats colour as a powerful medium to reflect and extend your essence as a human being, as as brand. Her fascination for the human being leads her to investigate the inner universe as a method for exploring the surrounding world. Trends don't touch our hearts, personal positive memories do and since colours are connected to these memories, they reach our hearts. Each branding process is elevated through a personalized colour consultation that is based on a memory analysis increasing your introspective ability and find colors that recall the feeling of beauty in yourself and your audience.

A FEMININE ENERGY REVOLUTION
My vision is to guide women to re-connect with their essence and bring more feminine energy and female entrepreneurial spirit to a (business) world that is based on dysfunctional, patriarchal structures. It's very clear to me that the necessary collective change can only happen with the rise of the feminine, that lives in every human being.
I want to encourage women to own their disruptive ideas, their unique voices and their big visions for a better, more equal and more diverse future, leading the way with integrity, intuition, empathy and true creativity.
But above all I want to recall the feeling of beauty within every human being and motivate them to make the world a more beautiful, soulful place by creating a beautiful life for themselves and inspire everyone they touch to do the same.
