IN THE NEWS: Alphapals Featured on Spectrum Reach’s “Saluting women business leaders in our Pay It Forward community”

In honor of Women’s History Month Spectrum Reach Highlighted Alphapals and three other incredible brands who “pay it forward.” 

For founder Sherrie Rose, an early childhood learning difficulty with words and letters turned into the inspiration to create the California-based AlphaPals, an innovative line of alphabet plushies to help make childhood learning a fun, interactive experience. Education is at the heart of her business and Rose has made a commitment that extends beyond her company. She regularly helps fund critical learning programs for elementary schools and partners with local charities like Operation Smile. “I am a big believer in education,” she said. “Knowledge has helped me in my life, and that has inspired me to pay forward the gift of education to others. Knowing my brand is making a difference, one child at a time, is a priceless gift that keeps me going and motivated to expand this brand.” Rose has experienced a lot in starting up her brand and her advice to business owners just starting out is to be ready to tackle unforeseen challenges. “Leave yourself time, energy, and finances to prepare for those obstacles,” she said. “More times than not, success doesn’t happen overnight, especially profit-wise. If you persevere and your heart is in the right place, your company will be a success.”
