Creating a new business.....

Here is the start of my logo thanks to my sweetheart

Today I have been working on my new business...Wisdom on Wings Coaching.  I had a fabulous coaching session with my friend Ruth where we used Interplay to help manifest incremental steps we are both working on in our businesses.  One of the steps is my logo.  Joe started working on some concept art yesterday (see above).  I think I want a few changes which include hiding the wolf's face (smaller) in the tree trunk.  Wolf is definitely one of my totems (teacher, nurturer, defender) but I want to lead with my birds.  The Heron, The Owl and the Hawk.  I'm excited to see how it turns out and it will be fun adding it to business cards.  I've been working on my W.O.W. Website if you get a chance I'd love for you to check it out and give me feedback.  I'm going to finish this post with a letter that I am sending out to contacts, family and friends to help spread the word.

As you know, I have a passion for helping families. I have been preparing

and coaching parents through the adoption process for over 16 years. In

that vein, I have super exciting news to share today!

As of Feb. 1st, I am launching Wisdom on Wings (W.O.W.) Coaching - my adoption coaching

business.  I have officially expanded my ability to help adoptive families throughout the US

by starting my own business offering a wide variety of Adoption Coaching.

I am available to counsel families before, during and after the adoption process.

Adoption is a life changing and often scary process. I guide families by offering solutions and

approaches honed throughout 16 years of working with "Forever Families."

Starting a business is a formidable task in many ways, but I am genuinely looking


forward to the challenge. As I embark on this journey, I am asking my

friends to help get the word out to families who might benefit from my

work. If you know someone who has recently adopted or is considering

adoption, please pass along my contact information below.

Christine Gautreaux, LMSW 770-256-9191

I am offering 30 min initial consultations to explain in detail the services


I offer. This is an easy (and free) way for families to understand how I

can help in their unique circumstances. My services are available both

remotely and in person.

If you can’t think of anyone off the top of your head right now, I hope that


you will go today and share a bit about me as well as the link below on

Facebook. We never know in our lives who might be considering adoption

or who might know someone that is.

I’m delighted to be working again in this capacity and I deeply appreciate

your help in getting me started.

With gratitude,



  1. Christine I am so excited for you! Your WOW website is beautiful! I understand that it is a work in progress. Love the butterflies but will also love your logo! You are an inspiration my dear friend!

    1. Thanks Ruth!!! Love that we are touchstones for each other during this fun and sometimes scary time!

  2. You have drafted such a nice start off point for a business. In any attempt at building up a business, it is paramount to know exactly what it is; more than your visions, more than your good intentions and more than your well-laid out plans. That's where you are going to draw your line-up of products, as well as the terms in which it has to operate and exist. You peg and plant that in the real world with a single, identifying logo and you run with it. Thanks for sharing that, Christine! All the best to you!
