πŸŽ™ About The Episode

Carrie Rose is the 29 year old co-founder and CEO of leading search-first creative agency Rise at Seven. Rise at Seven was founded in 2019 and in its first year brought in $1.8 million in revenue from working with some of the biggest names in the business, including ASOS and PlayStation. Fast forward to year 3 and this became $9 million and she’s also expanding her to the US as well. Carrie is an absolute powerhouse in the PR industry and in the episode she offers so much valuable business advice from how to pitch, to getting investments and also shares what she’s learned about marketing and advertising while growing her business. We also talk about teenage Carrie, and the challenges she faced in her early life, growing up in a disadvantaged area as well as dealing with grief from a young age and how that played a role in her journey to become the CEO she is today. Carrie is probably the most down to earth, positive vibes person we’ve had on the podcast so far and I really hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did.
