Julie “Jules” Weldon
Entrepreneur, CEO of OME Gear, Podcast Host, Author
Growing up in an entrepreneurial family, Jules got her love for starting businesses honest, but it took her time to dive into the (often) scary waters of entrepreneurship. After college, she worked in leadership with a non-profit organization for ten years, then traveled for a year doing humanitarian work in eleven developing countries. Upon returning stateside, she became a business consultant, ultimately with PWC, prior to starting a consulting firm, A Salty Rim. Jules’ main focus these days is her role as the Co-Founder/CEO of an innovative outdoor gear company, called OME Gear, with goals of building it into a national household brand. She is also the host of the Do It In Nature podcast, where she has conversations with people who are doing really inspirational things connected to the outdoors. In addition, Weldon has co-authored a children’s book called Rescued By Rico. Her biggest piece of advice is to be committed every day to building your network because she believes genuine relationships are everything.
