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?

TOPICS DISCUSSED IN THIS EPISODE:

  • How to be bold, speak up, and make a path to success for yourself. 
  • What does the notion of jealousy say about the way women avoid following their dreams?
  • Self-made Summit, and how it came to be.
  • Sigrun’s journey to entrepreneurship.
  • The narrative created by our culture that limits women from pursuing their dreams.
  • How to use your passion as a platform to inspire and help other women. 
  • Stop ignoring those “crazy ideas” and pursue them!
  • How women lead differently.

#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.
