Richard J Rose – Marketing Consultant
I have been a professional sales representative in the beauty industry for nearly 30 years. I started out with a small beauty supply company based out of Jacksonville, Florida called Gulf States Beauty Supply.
After only 5 years with the company, I rose (pun intended) to become the top selling rep the year they were sold. Since then, I have worked with one of the largest beauty companies in the industry.
Once you have worked for a family owned company, the larger corporate companies just did not work well for me, especially since I have an entrepreneurial spirit and I like doing things outside of the box.
Fast forward to today, I am one of the top selling reps with The Salon Center. This is a fast-growing, family owned company with a great philosophy of allowing their reps the freedom to be creative without a lot of micro management. The brands we carry are some of the best in the industry.
Since starting with The Salon Center, I created the company website and created a few others, such as TamingOfTheDo.com.
Through the years I have invested in myself learning how to leverage technology to grow my sales.
I utilize emerging technologies to help me grow my business and be a more efficient and effective consultant. I also create content and provide my customers a private training site to help them be more successful.
If you struggle with building an effective web presence, I also specialize in website development, internet, social media, and video marketing as a side hustle. You can find out more here: MarketingTechGuy.
Fun Facts About Me:
Florida native from Tampa, FL. Spent 4 years as an aircraft maintenance technician working on F-111's in the U.S. Air Force. Lived in England for 2 1/2 years and toured Europe. Upon honorable discharge, I entered the AF Reserves while I earned a 4 year college degree at the University of South Florida with a BS in Marketing.
I love aircraft, and even though I trained to get a pilot's license, life got in the way and never got around to finishing. One of life's regrets I guess.
I used to do wood-working as a hobby, but once my son came along, that all stopped. So my hobby now is video and technology. This grew out of a necessity when I first joined The Salon Center back in 2010 and they didn't have a website or a decent catalog. Even back then, I felt our company didn't seem legit without a website, so I set out to create one for my clients...even though I had no clue how to do it! I just did it and made many mistakes until I got it right and continued to learn from others online. Fast-forward to today and I have digital assets and videos...everywhere!
I work hard to support my wife and our adult special needs son with Autism.
Compared to others, I'm not you average sales rep! So now that you know a little about me, I would love to learn more about you too!
