Sigrun Gudjonsdottir Minisode
A Corporate CEO on The Challenges of Scaling from Startup
Too many women are succeeding in silence.
We don’t fit the startup stereotype of a guy in his garage inventing something and eating Ramen. Too many carbs!
Sigrun is a former corporate “turnaround” CEO who took the leap into entrepreneurship with a program to help women “stuck on the startup sticky floor” turn their ideas into action. She says she struggled at first making the transition from having big budgets to making every penny stretch with a startup.
Listen to learn how to:
- Get the right mindset for success
- Scale your business from 7 figures to 8 figures
- Beat perfectionism
- Know your value and walk your talk on values
- Work “on”your business instead of “in” it
And much more!

Listen to her Podcast, The Sigrun Show
Sigrun has doubled revenue in her business every year, and reached her $1m milestone in 2017 as well as producing 100 episodes of her podcast The Sigrun Show in 100 days. Now she’s busy scaling her business and taking it to the next level as she takes leisure time with her family, plays golf and travels the world.
Originally from Reykjavik, Iceland, Sigrun has always been drawn to leadership roles – and early on in her career, with no formal business training, she became CEO of a software company called SOMBA. She became a turnaround expert, landing in companies and bringing them to profitability – all while also earning three masters degrees.
Then came the burnout. She fell in love, got sick, moved to Switzerland, and soon found herself to be unemployable.
It was the impetus that pushed her to take the leap into entrepreneurship – creating a lifestyle business for herself and helping other women to do the same.
