Linda Bennett, president/founder
Sun Country Sports Center
With the help of her two children, the encouragement of her husband, and the mentorship of experts with the USA Olympic Gymnastics program, Sun Country Sports Center opened in 1987. For the 28 years that they have been in business, she learned that dedication, long hours, risk-taking, learning from mistakes, being open to the advice of others, developing strong staff, and relying on your own business intuition are the keys to success.
“You don’t build a business–you build people—and then people build the business.”
