SUPIA host our annual Leadership Summit addressing the most pressing issues facing our Paddlesports Industry today.

JULIE MERRILL - The Paddleboarding CPA: podcast + business and marketing consulting. 

Business & Marketing Coach * Podcaster * Mom * Military Spouse * Stand up Paddle Board Certified Instructor * Kayaker * Travel Vlogger * CPA (inactive) The Paddleboarding CPA? What? How do those two things get combined? One conversation with Julie will let you discover her two passions of business and stand up paddle boarding. If you are looking to start, manage or grow your business, Julie has tips, hacks and lessons learned that you won't want to miss out on. If you want to go out for a paddle on the water, she will be there to give you lessons, business and marketing tips in a “Board Meeting” or just recharge and enjoy the outdoors, salt water and sunshine. In The Paddleboarding CPA podcast, Julie combines her years of business and marketing experience with her passion for outdoor adventures together to help instructors and shop owners in SUP, SUP yoga, kayak and outdoor fitness fill their classes and bring repeat customers to their location. If you haven't already checked out the podcast, stop what you are doing and check it out now. It lives at www.thepaddleboardingcpa.com and is also on iTunes, Google Play and Stitcher. Julie goes live weekly on Friday mornings on both this Facebook page https://facebook.com/paddleboardingcpa and on her Instagram page https://instagram.com/paddleboardingcpa discussing business tips, tech hacks, standup paddle board gear and much more.
