CANVAS REBEL: Meet Jules Weldon & Stacey Pierce

CANVAS REBEL: Meet Jules Weldon & Stacey Pierce

We caught up with the brilliant and insightful Jules Weldon & Stacey Pierce a few weeks ago and have shared our conversation below.

Jules Weldon & Stacey Pierce, thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. Risking taking is a huge part of most people’s story but too often society overlooks those risks and only focuses on where you are today. Can you talk to us about a risk you’ve taken – it could be a big risk or a small one – but walk us through the backstory.

As the founders of OME Gear, we (Stace and Jules) faced insurmountable obstacles in 2020. Our manufacturing partner went silent on us during Covid after sending 500+ units that could not be used and, as a result, we lost out on $17,000 they owed us which never got recovered. We had to research, find, and secure a new manufacturer. We could not travel to the new manufacturer. We also could not secure any funding in 2020 so we ran out of money. Then, as if those obstacles were not enough, we found out our product was hidden in a warehouse in Utah and would not be released until we paid the manufacturer.
