Welcome! You have found yourself on the Intentional Growth Strategies site because you are ready to take your business to the next level. It’s true, you have almost limitless opportunities to work with consultants, coaches, and trainers to find your path to success. In this first post I’d like to share with you how working with Intentional Growth Strategies is different, what you can expect from this blog, and why I do what I do.

In order to get to know my company, it’s important to get to know me, Soma D. Jurgensen, the founder. What do I think? How do I approach life and work? As a quick and visual way to communicate what’s important to me and my business, here’s my manifesto.


Ok, we are strategic management consultants and trainers for small business owners. Yes, I’d love to talk to you about your planning, marketing, and communications needs and consult with your business. I also believe those that give freely get so much more in return. Therefore, in this blog, I’m going to share some of the most compelling research or practices I find, and I’ll make a connection to how you can use the information in your business today. All I ask is that you share the information with others if you find it valuable. That is my ultimate goal; to share value with you.

I started this business with one goal in mind, for us all to grow our businesses in a way that allows us to pursue our passions. That’s why I get up every morning. You are my passion.

Before you go I have some news. First, I’d love to meet you if you’re in the Twin Cities, MN area. On June 25th I’m holding a “Networking Success Workshop” for those who dread networking. Is that you? Join me in this small group setting so you can take advantage of the win/win connections you will learn to build in the workshop.

I’ll also invite you to sign up to receive news, content, and events from Intentional Growth Strategies. I’m kicking things off by offering a free e-book called “Leading Teams that Get Results.” That’s right, this 30 page e-book with research, tips, and exercises can help you and your team deliver results for your business.

If you’d like to follow Intentional Growth Strategies on Facebook, I’d love to see you there are well. You can “like” my page at www.facebook.com/igsmgmt.com.

Now that we’re connected, let’s grow our businesses together.
