Our Founder

The power of B-School behind your business.

Soma’s eight years teaching in and managing the School of Business Program for Rasmussen College in MN and ND ensures strong curriculum design, professional training, and focused strategy behind your company’s growth plans. A passionate educator of adult students in undergraduate education, Soma knows how to turn your ideas into tools that engage, inspire, and produce results.

Best of both brains.

Express your value to your ideal customers with a cohesive story that sticks. Soma’s degree in creative writing and MBA in Marketing provides you an unprecedented balance between personalization and profit. With her experience in creating content and business strategy, we can craft your story for the right audience. If you can’t tell your story, how will you sell your story?

Strategy and story-telling get results.

Our founder puts her 20 years experience in marketing and management for companies large (General Mills) and small (Minnesota Parent Magazine) together with expertise in professional communication and story-telling so you make the most of every customer engagement.

Professional training with real interaction.

We offer a full suite of training to build your skills, or those of your team, to meet your company’s mission. Contact Soma for keynote addresses, custom training, group courses, learning in-person or online, all designed to transfer learning into action. Our founder uses the tools she’s developed through in-person and online classes to engage all participants in active learning. We learn best when we have fun… so let’s have fun.




Intentional Growth Strategies brings to life the ideas of small business owners and industry experts, helping them sell more by turning their experience into business-generating content and teaching tools that benefit their customers.
