Female entrepreneur advocate, mentor, and founder of the Selfmade Summit, Sigrun joins Kim to talk about her journey to entrepreneurship and what sets women leaders apart. How can we shatter the mindset that society has integrated into us, convincing us that women are limited? What excuses are we using to stop ourselves from pursuing our extraordinary dreams?

She is the leading business mentor for female online entrepreneurs in Europe, TEDx speaker, and host of the Sigrun Show podcast. Originally from Reykjavik, Iceland, she has spent more than half her life outside her home country; in Germany, United Kingdom, and Switzerland. Since she was a young girl she’s always been drawn to leadership roles, so despite having zero business background nor the education she made a life-changing phone call and asked to become the CEO of a software company shortly after finishing her master’s degree in architecture – and she got the job!

#LESSONUP:

(8:26 ) I was one of the first to lose my job because I was the one to speak up and ask questions like, why do we spend so much money and we don’t make so much money?

(10:37) I had no business background, no business education, but I got this crazy idea and it wouldn’t leave me alone. And I think that when you have crazy good ideas, they come back no matter how much you push them away.

(20:20) It’s not the child that makes you give up your dreams. It’s your relationship to your dream and the way you’re trying to execute it. So, if you are too busy to do your passion and you say because of your child, that’s putting extra blame and unnecessary blame on your child. That actually has nothing to do with them.

(21:37) We just are very used to this narrative in the culture… but I believe if you’re called to have a child and called to have a career, they feed each other, and that there is a way to navigate both.

(29:03) I think women are fantastic leaders, and I think we need definitely more of them. It is shocking how few we have in the highest positions, and how somehow women stop trying to go for the top job.
