Getting to Clarity

Satisfying Career

There are two key elements to creating a career that feels successful to you.

1. Having a job that suits your preferences, talents, and skills and

2. Having an experience of performing that role in a way that is fulfilling to YOU.

Sounds straightforward, right?

But what does that really mean…to YOU?

As a busy professional who is always juggling every area of your life, to get it all done, to keep all the balls in the air, it can be a challenge to figure out.

It seems that to have success in our careers, it’s has to be a sacrifice to someone or something else. The more effort you put into advancing in your career, the less time you have for the other things that are truly important to you like your family and friends.

Sometimes, it’s sacrificing ourselves to get ahead in our careers. We sacrifice our health, and our relationships, just to have security.


But we tell ourselves that it’s worth the tradeoff, that we have a plan, and it’s only going to take some sacrifice, and only for a while, and that’s ok to get ahead. Until, we discover that there’s no end in sight and we don’t like where we are and have no idea where we want to go.

You’re probably at the point of knowing that something has to give because of the impact it is having on you and those close to you.

But what is “it”? What exactly has to give?

You do.

If you’re going to create a career that is aligned with who you are, is what you want to do, and is fulfilling, focused, and financially stable, then now more than ever it’s the time to create career success on YOUR terms without losing who you are in the process. 

Hi! I’m Debbie Peterson, Career Mentor & Coach, and Founder of The Way Forward in YOUR Career.

My superpower is helping women and emerging leaders like you to create a roadmap to your ideal next level, or even next chapter, of your career and giving you the tools and the clarity to achieve it.

And, believe me, I get it…because I was there too.

At one point in my corporate career, I was so stuck, frustrated, and miserable, feeling disconnected from everything and everyone I once loved and enjoyed.

It was like living in glass jar with a lid, I could see out of it, but I couldn’t access anything.

It was almost 2 years of feeling nothing but self-doubt and anxiety because I wasn’t happy or satisfied with what appeared to others to be a great career, and I couldn’t figure my way out.

….But then I discovered that I was the one who was the most in my own way. I also discovered that I had the tools to not only get back to feeling like my old self, but to create a satisfying and successful career (and life) by my design, and not by default.

Here’s what I want to share with you!

     A process that allows you to create a satisfying and fulfilling career but one that dovetails with the rest of your life instead of competing with it.

     This process allows you to get clarity of your direction in career so that you have confidence in the action you take.

     This process uncovers new, bigger professional opportunities that you’ve never considered before.

     This process encourages you to stop playing small and instead move into your fullest potential.

     This process allows you to achieve MORE without sacrificing your lifestyle, health, and relationships.

     This process will stop you from being pulled in multiple directions so that you can MOVE FORWARD from here to a career on your terms.

So, if you’re curious what it’s like to experience moving forward without overwhelm and easily creating high-level momentum and success that’s aligned with you, I’d love to have a conversation with you to see if we’re a fit.

. . .you’ll start to see how you no longer have to sacrifice satisfaction for security.

. . .you’ll no longer compromise your values and the priorities in your life to earn a paycheck.

. . .you’ll truly start to discover how much more influence you have, and, you can finally create the fulfilling, fun, and financially stable career that you deserve!

Now, more than ever, it’s time to focus on YOU and creating a career that is aligned with who you are without having to sacrifice what’s important to you in the process.

Be good to yourself,


P.S. Please click only if you are committed to creating a career and life that aligns with who you are meant to BE.

Debbie presented to Working Women of Tampa Bay in March 2017. Our guests gave her rave reviews. Debbie has a great presentation style and her talk was packed with great tips for women wanting to increase their confidence in their communication skills. I highly recommend Debbie’s presentation for professional women’s groups.

I feel like there’s been a significant momentum shift in just the past week/week and a half. It’s nice to finally get back to a place where I feel excited about the work I’m doing and what lies ahead. Attending Debbie’s event was the best thing I’ve done in quite some time.

—Heather Sampson

Debbie Peterson gave a fantastic presentation to my group of young professionals at the Professional Development Committee of Emerging Leaders of Tampa Bay. Here insights and tidbits were invaluable to our group of up and coming leaders looking to better themselves in their professional lives. She was timely, professional, and great to work with. She would make a great speaker for an upcoming event. Thanks again, Debbie!
