Episode 13: Pool Pro Magazine with Megan Kendrick
In this episode we interview Megan Kendrick who is the owner of Pool Pro Magazine. It was such an honor for us as Pool Pro is our favorite magazine in the industry. Reason being is, it is tailored more to us as pool pro’s. We pick up a copy of every new issue as soon as they hit the shelves!
We discuss how Megan grew up around the oil industry and how there are a lot of similarities to the pool industry. Megan discusses how she went from being an athlete to making the transition into being a journalist. We also discuss some of the struggles of making the transition from employee to owner.
One of the major things Megan talks about is feedback from the readers. We understand how important that is, so if you guys get a chance please let them know how they are doing.
