What does it take to scale a business?  How to you let go of your inner “control freak” and perfectionism and embrace the change that comes with hiring and growing a team. Also why it’s important to get out of judgment and find time to be in the present moment and just breathe.

More About This Episode

Ever wonder if you’re sitting on a goldmine?

That if only you could leverage your passion, your wealth of knowledge, your experience, and your ideas … you would be sipping pina coladas at the beach while people bought that online course of yours?

Perhaps you can visualize it.

Perhaps you’re getting frustrated as you watch others launch online programs and make it look easy.

Perhaps you simply don’t know the best place to start.

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 shares how she helps women build lifestyle businesses. Listen to learn how to:

  • Make the leap from the corporate world to startups
  • Build the infrastructure and support network you need to succeed
  • Beat perfectionism
  • Go from zero to 7 figures in 4 years with small virtual team
  • Set up systems, processes and teams to scale your business before you get to burnout
  • Create a “lifestyle” business that supports the life you want to lead and gives you free time for your family and hobbies
  • Focus when you have a gazillion ideas

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 her self to be unemployable.

It was the impetus that pushed her to take the leap into entrepreneurship – creating a lifestyle business for her self and helping other women to do the same.
