WHO AM I?

I am Christy Gutierrez. I am a wife, mom, designer and coach.

In a sentence, I want to see everyone living their best life: physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

I initially started The Pax Collective strictly as a design business for weddings, but I have since morphed it into a collection of everything I love: designing for brides and businesses, writing on my blog about everything from parenting to fitness, and coaching others to start their own online businesses. Since I have become a mom, my focus has been on being at home with my little man. When I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to start turning The Pax Co. into something that not only allowed me to stay at home with my son, but also coached other moms, or really anyone who wants a freedom lifestyle, on how they could do the same thing.

I live for connecting with others. If you’ve ever taken the StrengthsFinder assessment, Relator is my #2. If you are reading this, I want to see you living your life filled with intention, freedom and purpose. I have a huge heart for seeing others put their gifts and talents to use for the Kingdom of God and fulfilling their God-given purposes, and I know a big part of my calling is coaching women on how to do just that.

So if you take a look around the site, you will see that I still work with brides for weddings, but I am expanding to help others build, brand, and grow their own online businesses. If you have something you are passionate about and the mindset to do what it takes to start a business online, I want to help you say goodbye to your 9-5 job and coach you to start living intentionally for the things you love, like your family, building your own business, traveling, or whatever the heck else you can dream up.

BEHIND THE NAME

"Pax" means "peace be with you" in Latin.

Noise is everywhere — in our personal lives and in our businesses. Noise is defined as “a sound, especially one that is loud or unpleasant or that causes disturbance.” In journalism school, we learned that noise is any irregular fluctuation that accompanies the message. Noise is, quite literally, the absence of peace.

I want to encourage, engage, and challenge you to live with intention — whether that’s through guiding you to start and grow your own online business, connecting with you through posts on the blog, or challenging with you topics discussed on the Kingdom Focus podcast. I am so glad you are here! Grab a cup of coffee, stay a while.
