Linda Rawson, CEO, and Founder of DynaGrace Enterprises started her company initially called Sensory Technology Consultants, in 2006. DynaGrace Enterprises (DGE) is 100 percent Women-Owned Small Business and is SBA 8(a) certified and has done over $1 billion dollars of DoD government contracts. DGE is a business run by a family as Jennifer Remund, Linda’s daughter, is the Vice President.
Linda was born in a small farming community in Utah, and she was raised by her mother, who was a single mom raising five children. Her mother never went to college and did not have any dreams of owning her own business; she did her best to provide while remaining within the expected role of a woman.
Linda never thought about being an entrepreneur even though there were childhood tendencies. She has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) so as a child her mom was constantly shoving her out the door, so she didn’t drive her mom crazy. Until a teenager, she struggled in school. In high school, she always got good grades while being involved in Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), sports, and band. She grew up in a poor single mom household. From meager beginnings came the experience of how to work hard to achieve results.
Of her family, she is the only one to dream of owning her own business and the only one to have pursued higher education, thus breaking from the family mold and becoming a success in the business world. She has exceeded expectations and never let various challenges and obstacles associated with being a woman impede upon her path to success
Her entrepreneur story starts in 2005 at Hill AFB, UT. She was writing database software for the 84th Radar Evaluation Squadron (RADES). She got hired as an Oracle DBA but was also a talented.Net programmer, so a few information systems became born or enhanced during her time there. She loves writing software and data has always been her thing. She describes being perfectly happy as a cube rat.
During this time she went through a divorce. So while her personal life was in strife, she had to turn her life around and take care of my three teenage kids so that their life was somewhat normal. She poured herself into work and managed to run the kids around to all their activities. As a single mom, she had to consider her family first. Her words at this time ”I have skills, what would be the worst thing that would happen? My kids might have to sleep on somebody’s couch for a month or two. It doesn’t hurt children to experience hard times.” Her kids never slept on somebody’s couch, and she has managed to give them a great lifestyle.
Although very passionate about what she does she is often accused being a workaholic. She finds balance in her life by being very close to her family and spends time with them as much as possible. She also finds pleasure in life by traveling and participating in outdoor activities.
Today DGE is a multimillion dollar business, and is thriving and growing. Linda chooses to share her knowledge and experience with other entrepreneurs.
