Career Balance Coaching is career transition coaching for high achievers

As career-driven professionals, we are uniquely situated to take over the world… ahem, I mean create our own opportunities for success, but we can fall into jobs that don’t suit us, ending up overwhelmed, burnt-out, or feeling trapped. To top it all off, feeling lost at work causes your work-life balance to suffer. It can be hard to get yourself motivated to make time for your health, having fun, getting together with friends and family, relationships, and everything else life throws at you.

You finished school, found a “great” job, and have been progressing well in your career, but you feel like something is missing. If this sounds like you, I’m here to help. My goal is to help you rediscover your passion, create balance, and take the next step to creating your amazing life.

How it works

Whether you’re striving for the CFO spot or starting to wander off the beaten path, I am committed to helping you discover the path that is right for you. My 8 week Career Clarity program helps you find balance and fulfillment to live the life you’ve always dreamed of. 


We’ll dig in to your skills, values and interests to create a unique formula to help you decide what your future holds.

Building Confidence

Feeling lost can cause doubt to seep in to everything you do. I’ve created exercises to build your confidence and remind you that the world needs you.


We’ll make sure nothing holds you back. We’ll touch on your beliefs and mindset, as well as that pesky inner critic to clear the path for your dreams.


Who doesn’t want someone cheering them on through times of change? I’m here to celebrate both big and small milestones on your path to success.


This is where we’ll get to know each other and determine if working together is a fit. You receive a 45 min session to explore where you’re at and where you’d like to be.


This 8 week program guides you through self-discovery, building confidence, strengthening your mindset, creating an action plan and providing support and accountability.


My workshops offer the opportunity for personal growth and learning in a group environment. Future topics may include rediscovering joy in your current job and dealing with stress.

Client Testimonials

I was fortunate to retain Lisa as my professional coach for 12 sessions. During this time, Lisa effectively challenged me to push myself beyond my self-imposed limitations and achieve meaningful personal life goals. I appreciated that Lisa was empathetic while also being able to maintain a professional approach. I will continue to utilize the skills I developed with Lisa, as I move forward with future challenges.


The 3 months I spent with Lisa as my Coach were undeniably wonderful. She challenged me to see beyond my default patterns of thinking, guided me toward making better choices for my life and helped me breakthrough the obstacle of feeling “stuck” that I’ve been carrying around for years. It also goes without saying that Lisa is so easy to talk to that opening up to her felt normal and natural. For anyone who is seeking a champion cheerleader to guide them through the ups and downs of their career, I cannot fathom anyone better!


My sessions with Lisa have been amazing! I would not be where I am today without her support and guidance. She has a way of pushing you through challenges with ease and guidance. I find that sometimes it is difficult to discuss the things that hold us back in life, but with Lisa I feel comfortable and safe. I highly recommend her services.


The Ambitious Introvert

I’m sure I’m not the only one who had a dream of putting the full alphabet beside my name before I was 30 (Lisa Petkovsek, BBA, MBA, CPA, CMA, CPC had a nice ring to it). I am, by any standard, an ambitious introvert, and a lot of the time that meant choosing studying or working over fun and enjoyment. I had this idea that more certifications and promotions to the next level would somehow bring happiness. It took lots of late nights at the office, plenty of career success, becoming a landlord, changing careers (career #3), moving countless times, and finally working for a company that has allowed me to grow and explore my true passion to realize that for me there is more to life than climbing the corporate ladder. Do I regret it? Absolutely not, I am proud of my path and the personal growth it provided. Am I happier knowing I am now living my passion? One million percent. 

What I reazlied is that your work (including avg commute) takes up a minimum of 50% of the hours you spend awake in a given week. Would you spend 50% of your time with someone you didn’t like? So why do we think it’s ok to spend our time at a job we don’t like just because there’s a paycheck? If you’re ready for a change, you’ve come to the right place. And the best part? Everything you need is already inside of you. All you need to do, is get started.
