Today’s Notable Young Entrepreneur is Ashley Rosenberger, who created Rose PR to fulfill her passion for building relationships and fostering meaningful conversations between brands and audiences. We caught up with her to find out what advice she would share with other young professionals and where she sees herself in five years…
Elevator Pitch: Describe your job in a nutshell.
I am a storyteller. I am tasked with taking a client’s respective product and relaying its importance and/or appeal to the public.
Why did you start working at your company? What was the inspiration for this career route?
For several years, prior to opening my own company, I worked in PR and realized that although it is a 24/7 job, I really love it! I love building relationships with others, I love communicating, and I love seeing the positive results that derive from my hard work.
What is the best part of what you do on a day-to-day basis? The most challenging part?
The best part of what I do is seeing positive results; there is nothing greater than seeing a glowing article regarding my client(s) product. The most challenging part is that I always need to be ON. There is no time for rest in the world of PR, which is why I am always available (day and night) for every single one of my clients.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
In five years, I (hopefully) see a growth in my business that will extend throughout North America! Rose PR goes international!
What does success look like to you?
For me, success is when you see that your client is happy with the results. There is nothing more satisfying than a happy client.
What is the most memorable milestone in your career?
The most memorable milestone in my career was the first event I ever did under Rose PR – a 5à7 vernissage showcasing Romero Britto’s art. It was then when I realized I can actually do this.
Do you have any advice for other young professionals?
My advice for other young professionals would be that if you are passionate about what you do, and if you remain persistent, then you have the right tools to make it!
Do you support any charities? If so, which one(s) and why is that important to you?
Yes, I am heavily involved in Montreal’s Israel Cancer Research Fund (ICRF). I am currently the co-chair for Israel Cancer Research Fund (ICRF)’s Taste For Life – an annual foodie event that raises money for cancer research. This cause is important to me,as cancer has personally affected me; I have seen a bulk family members and friends go through this awful ordeal.
What to you is notable?
Notable is waking up in the morning and loving what you do.
