Damon Rawls is the Principal Strategist at DRC Business Consulting.  Damon advises, educates, and brainstorms with his clients to produce practical results in their business and in life.  Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs gave Damon the background and flexible mindset needed to become successful in business. Like most professionals, Damon entered corporate America with big ideas and aspirations, but found that the corporate environment neither suited his free spirit nor provided the limitless opportunities he sought. After this realization, he left corporate America in search of a brighter future, and never looked back.

Damon Rawls launched his first successful company in 1997. In the last decade he has started and served as partner in 2 other companies. One of his life principles is “those with blessed lives must give back”.  He embodies the spirit of giving through the numerous civic organizations in which he is involved.  Damon impacts the next generation of entrepreneurs as co-founder of Young Entrepreneurship Program (YEP) at Austin East and Fulton high school.
