What's a profile?
A profile is a collection of your work experience and expertise, packaged up to share with other Wethos collaborators.

What's a studio?

Studios have services that they sell to clients, unique brands that identify them, collaborators that make up their network or dream team, and projects that are scoped and run through the platform.
