Meet Savannah Hamilton of Wild Savannah in Venice

Today we’d like to introduce you to Savannah Hamilton. 

Thanks for sharing your story with us Savannah. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
My journey started quite different from the woman I am today. Although I always knew I was here for something far greater then at the time I was even capable of understanding. I grew up in a small, rural town in Ohio. With three stoplights and one Tastee-Freez. With far too much energy and wanderlust for life than what the kind folks of my town knew to do with, I was a fearless, tiny, blonde-haired rebel who danced to the own beat of her own drum, if you grew up in a small town, you know the repercussions of this.

I graduated high school early, but not because I was eager to go to college, because I was eager to escape. My intuition was leading me to something far greater than I could understand. I wish I could say that’s where my journey inward began, but at 17 and with a lot less self-reflection and inner knowing than I have now, I did what most kids were told to do- go to college, get a good job, buy a house- you know the stuff to make your parents proud.

I went to nursing school because it was a “good career,” meaning, it provided a 401K, job stability, PTO, a decent salary. What I loved most about it was that I only had to work three nights a week, and working a night shift, that is where my love affair with traveling began. Four days I would spend traveling, back at work, the other three days is where I would spend plotting my next adventure. Eventually, my wanderlust landed me in sunny California. In California, it felt as if my whole life had shifted. I was applauded for my uniqueness, I felt free to be the real me. It appeared as though my life (externally) was all coming together. Eventually, nursing led me to pursue my Master’s degree as a Nurse Practitioner, as I stated before my external word looked “perfect” but inside I was still hungry for acceptance.

I’m a chronic over-doer, over-achiever, and over-giver. My entire life I searched for external validation through relationships, my career, my income, shopping, friendships. I morphed and people pleased and wore so many different masks I didn’t even know who Savannah was. Traveling the world every other week, obtaining my Master’s degree, making well over six figures, single and “loving” life, I had it all – externally, but inside I was at constant war with myself. Every waking moment was a constant battle between my inner mean girl and myself, I had no self-worth, no self value. I was desperately seeking to fill an insatiable void.

Following obtaining my Master’s I relocated to a remote small town in Iowa with no friends, no parties, no external identity left, I was forced to sit alone with myself and let me tell you, she wasn’t someone that I wanted to be with. The Universe/Source/God, whatever your choose to call it has a way of bringing things into your life right when you need them. It was nearing my 30th birthday and I was gifted a book published by Louise Hay, the godmother of self-love, title The Essentials Collection. This book became the catalyst to the confident and wholehearted woman I am today and completed transformed my life.

Oh, and remember how I said the Universe gives you what you need at exactly the right time? Well this was no exception, I was there, in desolate Iowa for a reason.

I took the next year of social solitude for the first time in my life. I dove into self-development, the Law of Attraction, shifted my mindset from scarcity to abundance and began to cultivate a love for myself. I was there to heal, to grow, to evolve and to come back home and begin to love myself.

The love I that I had been searching for was far too big to ever be filled by external sources, the love I had been searching for —was that of my own . I released my people-pleasing behaviors and established healthy boundaries for EVERYONE in my life. I started loving myself in the present and vowed to never seek for “perfection” again, understanding The Universe creates everything “perfect” exactly as it is (without losing ten pounds, perfect skin or the perfect relationship) I healed old past wounds and trauma around my relationships with men and my parents. I released old stories that were no longer serving me or were not mine to take on from the beginning. I offered forgiveness to everyone in my past, most importantly myself.

I ended up getting let go from my ‘dream job’, which is ironic, because getting fired from my dream job, led me to my dream life. I had always knew nursing wasn’t my passion, but it was the safe route, what my parents told me to do, what society told me to do and as humans we are creatures of comfort… and I was comfortable. I became crystal clear on my own values and self-worth and took FULL responsibility for my life and began to CREATE a life I absolutely love and one that I always knew I desired. Getting let go allowed me to explore new ways to merge my passion, traveling and FREEDOM, and ultimately opening my own business that I have today.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Oh my goodness no! It has been filled with peaks, valleys, plateau, boulders and a year or two of quicksand along the way. I’m so grateful for every moment of it though, it has molded me into the independently, courageous, loving woman I am today. It has strengthened me, provided valuable lessons and stripped away what no longer served me. I had to learn that the money I made, how many degrees I carried and my job title did not define me.

And after stripping away all of that, the biggest struggle was learning how to unapologetically be, me, and loving that person unconditionally. The beauty of this is now when I encounter “struggles,” they indicate where I am living out of alignment with my true self and act as a GPS, pointing me to my highest self.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Wild Savannah story. Tell us more about your work.
Today I practice as a Success Coach and Mindset Coach. As the founder of Untamed and Unapologetic, Women Who Want More Out of Life, the host of Wild Within Podcast and an International Retreat host I use all my platforms to support women in living their best lives. By slowing down and turning in instead of searching for external validation my clients are able to heal old wounds, release old stories, dissolve limiting beliefs and self-sabotaging behaviors to reigniting their own self worth and become the powerful, confident women they’ve always known they could be in both their lives and businesses.

I’m on a mission to globally inspire women to live untamed and unapologetic lives. I help women who feel stuck, restless and unfulfilled in their lives because deep down they know they were made for more. I believe my biggest gift is to see through the facades and mask women wear that keep them stuck and playing small in their lives and businesses. Through my own healing, I found we are often our own biggest obstacles, so with my support, I help you get out of your own way.

Women who work with me can expect to be encapsulated with my encouragement, tough love, and support as we strip away their old mask, shatter their own limiting beliefs. What I am most proud of is finally believing in myself enough to leave the healthcare field completely this past year. Understanding your worth, knowing the Universe always has your back and believing wholeheartedly that you can truly achieve anything, has been monumental in my transformation.

I’d have to say, being “wild” Savannah, the girl I used to hide so well, is whom I’m most proud of today because she allows me to play and create bold, “wild” transformations For others in my business. It’s through my tough love, telling you how it is, holding you accountable, not letting you play small and ability to hold space, my clients are able to become their most unapologetic self.

Has luck played a meaningful role in your life and business?
Oohh great question! I don’t think I would ever categorize myself as a lucky or unlucky person. I believe through my commitment to myself and living out my purpose and passion, I become luckier every day in both life and my business.
