Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in personal development but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Alicia Rose, founder of Rose Composite LLC., located in Lake Oswego, OR, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
I am the founder of the Rose Composite, and my customers are quite varied though they generally have an understanding that there is a part of life that is inherently spiritual. There is magic in the air, and blessings are everywhere. Regardless of your beliefs, most people can recognize that within each one of us, there is a part that is eternal, a part that wanders into our dreams. We have seen things that just couldn't be true, yet they are. We know it only because we saw it with our very own eyes. These are my customers.
I mostly just talk to people, usually over the phone. My clients are scattered around the world, and all the work I do can be done remotely. I talk with animals mostly, all mammals included. I communicate beyond realms and share messages to ease our experiences here in this world. I share what didn't get said at the moment, or perhaps messages that didn't quite get through properly. On occasion, there are prescient warnings. Regularly we talk about past lives, or I facilitate energy healing.
Tell us about yourself
Each day I am motivated by the people I serve. I am honored to be a conduit for messages and healing. I jokingly say I am a glorified telephone to the other side. I started out by learning to speak openly, and to my surprise, the response was phenomenal - hearing so often, "how did you know that?". A friend had invited me to an animal communication course, and after that, I began taking it more seriously. After channeling as medium several times, it was clear that I had dramatically altered people's lives for the better. Regardless of my trepidation, it was a duty more than a desire to become the founder of the Rose Composite.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
As someone who remembers past lives, perhaps my biggest accomplishment is recognizing my own immortality. The thing about that is, there is always another lesson to be learned and another achievement to be accomplished. For quite some time, my skills operated in secret. I claimed to be nothing more than myself, though my contact info was passed around to those who had problems that couldn't quite be solved by doctors or lawyers or therapists or veterinarians. From that perspective, perhaps the business itself is the accomplishment. In this reality, each client is like a ripple that radiates outward. For every life that I am able to impact, there are unlimited others positively affected. It is communicable - we are who we surround ourselves with. And it is our simple purpose to expand and align. I hope to be an example of what society could be; for a person by person; we change each other.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
The responsibility of freedom. When you are free to do as you choose, you are also obligated to blame or credit those choices. So often, people have revoked their freedoms in part or in whole. They no longer take responsibility for their decisions, claiming they had no choice.
If you choose only one thing, let it be an intention you can stand by. The intention is like a seed. If you plant weeds, they will grow; if you plant flowers, they will grow. Choose wisely.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Be open and honest. Even when we don't know what someone is keeping from us, we can tell they are keeping something from us. Which brings me to my next point, there is more help than you realize. By sharing what is going on, you may have the support that you didn't even realize was available to you. Thirdly, accept the help.
Is there anything else you'd like to share?
Who am I? What's the best that could happen? How could this get even better? Consider focusing on the questions you'd like answers to. If you have that sparkly shimmery feeling, it is meant to be for you. Follow this inspiration to fulfill your desires. It is your divine right to be free to love.
