This is the second part of Patricia’s amazing trip to Necker Island, a private island…
This is going to be a powerhouse episode of the Live Your Dreams Awake podcast because we have a truly admirable woman who followed her dreams to be where she is now in the online community. I am talking about Sigrun and her namesake in Norse mythology, the Queen Valkyrie, she possesses the ability and self-empowerment to stay in her game.
Sigrun is a CEO turned entrepreneur, a licensed architect, certified trainer, and a software engineer. Early on in her studies, she realized that she was not born to be an architect but still pursued her studies in architecture. Today her mission is to accelerate gender equality through female entrepreneurship. She inspires people, especially women to follow their dreams and to take action.
Be inspired as you listen to this episode!
REMEMBER – “ Follow your dreams and take action.”
