Long Bio

Iris Culp is the Principal at IC Growth, a marketing consulting and business growth firm. She has more than a decade of marketing experience and has helped clients double their top line revenue in less than 24 months. 

She is fond of saying, “Everyone has a story to tell”. It’s a heartfelt belief she inherited from her mother’s belief that each person matters. She sums it up this way: 

We’ve each lived a life that has a unique story. I have a penchant to help craft the business owner’s story and message so he or she “gets found and understood”. I am completely in my element doing just that.  When the message is clear, the right opportunities FIND YOU!” 

Prior to the current focus of marketing strategies for solopreneurs & micro-business owners, she worked professionally as a writer, as well as 20+ years in Human Resources with a focus on organizational communication.    

She worked in HR leadership roles at American Airlines, Sabre where she led several nationwide initiatives. She earned a master’s degree in adult education and holds multiple HR certifications.

Currently her firm, IC Growth is focused on helping small business owners leverage the power of LinkedIn to organically grow for a consistent  and full sales pipeline. She has developed a signature program in that space titled,  “LinkedIn for Business: 6 Weeks from Questions to Confidence”. 

She describes herself as a “creative analytic” who loves research and data and blends that with a creative twist. She finds it particularly fun to support entrepreneurs who happen to be “fellow introverts” “find an authentic way to tell their own story” and find their ideal audience. In her spare time, she loves to dig in her flower garden, create landscapes, ride motorcycles, and read.
