Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal and business development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Debbie Peterson, Founder of Getting to Clarity, LLC., located in Cape Coral, FL, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
My superpower is helping women in leadership and emerging leaders to create a roadmap to their ideal next level, or even next chapter, of their leadership & life by giving them 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 a glass jar with a lid, I could see out of it, but I couldn't access anything. It was almost two 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 found 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.
Through my Clarity Process, I help people, just like you, create more success, but without losing yourself in the process!
Tell us about yourself
What got me started was feeling profoundly dissatisfied in my corporate career, but perfectionism and a boatload of limiting beliefs were stressing me out. When I was able to figure out my way forward in my career and life, I knew that I was meant to pay it forward so that others could experience their way forward too. Getting to Clarity is my company but also my journey, and each time I share my story at a conference and hear "You were speaking just to me," it lights the fire to keep doing it daily.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
There are so many, but I would have to say it's sharing my message and content with thousands of people on stage, and I'm an introvert!
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
Staying in the right head space. We get in our own way more than anyone or anything else can. It has the tools and resources to get up and keep going when you feel you aren't equipped to do so. You can!
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Know what to focus on to get the results you deserve, and that means focusing on the right things, not everything!
- Surround yourself with people who will support you to achieve your goals, dreams, and desires! You don't achieve success by yourself.
- Do the inner work. That means that you are aware of your mindset and what the internal messages and feelings are really telling you. Journaling, coaching, meditation, negative emotion release, and forgiveness are all tools in my toolkit that you want to consider for yourself.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
