We had the good fortune of connecting with Taniah Rose and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Taniah, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
I like to think of myself as a rather logical thinker, the thing with risk taking is that sometimes logic goes out the door and instinct takes over. Intuitive thinking and getting a sincere feeling of situations prior to taking a leap has been the strategy I’ve modeled many of my decisions and risks after. Career wise, I’ve taken risks that range from accepting a new position in a new state and moving two weeks later, to venturing into a new sector of services for my small business. Each risk leading me to its own reward and validation that the risk was a worthy one.
My latest risk has been the creation of my career advancement planner. I wanted to create something for planners (like myself) that was geared specifically towards motivating them to advance their career. The planner has monthly quotes, quarterly goal setting, weekly aims, interview cheat sheet and checklists to ensure you’re cognizant of your career goal and making necessary strides to achieve them.
Despite being an avid planner, creating a planner to sell was completely out of my wheelhouse. Nonetheless, it was a risk I felt would help clients and be received well. My first week of sale I received twenty preorders!
What should our readers know about your business?
Rose Consulting Services’ (RCS) specialization was twofold: it first aimed to provide career services and tools to clients to meet their professional development goals, and secondly, it aimed to provide a variety of human resources services to companies by analyzing its current HR programs and recommending solutions.
I believe what sets RCS apart from others is its collaborative piece, rather than just being a paid-for service that sees a flaw; whether it be in a resume, interview technique, or HR Program and immediately rectifies it, Rose Consulting Services aims to work jointly with clients in order to coach them on improvements that can be made and why the improvement would benefit them. RCS really wants to equip clients with tools they can use for years to come.
This year, I have created a career advancement planner that will help clients really plan, track and meet their goals both professionally and personally. I am so excited about this as it was a passion project that I worked on specifically for people who felt stuck in a rut. Our “Think It, Want It, Get It” – Career Advancement Planners are available for pre-order.
Our newest venture, “Brand Storytelling” aims to do your brand’s dirty work. RCS will link what our clients stand for to the values shared with customers. This may look different for each client, but possible services include website assistance such as creating a client’s “about me/us”, bio and/or mission statements. Preparing client’s responses to interviews or any press run and ensuring any written content that comes from your brand/business has the necessary human element to connect to customers.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
My favorite place for lunch right now is Flower Child in Buckhead, the food is fresh and I leave full but not feeling guilty. For date night I’d have to say my favorite is Apt4b, being Jamaican I love its West Indian dishes and the vibe is always right. When outdoors I enjoy bike riding on the Silver Comet Trail or hiking up Kennesaw Mountain.
My husband and I also both enjoy going to art & music showcases, our last being an art showcase by artist UMRVNI. Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My family without a doubt deserves recognition. My parents for instilling an overflow of confidence in me since I was a child, my brothers for always challenging me, my husband for his unwavering support in just about anything I bring to the table and my son for making me work harder so he has a dope mom to brag about.
