Dawn Kennedy

Business Finance and Entrepreneurship

Dawn Kennedy is an attorney, financial coach, and serial entrepreneur who is passionate about helping small businesses thrive in the face of unexpected market changes by ensuring there is a plan to protect financial milestones and a plan for the company’s successful growth. 

Her focus on financial coaching began when she faced some tough financial lessons with UNEQ Consulting, LLC, a six-figure consulting business she ran with her husband Mike. On November 1st 2013, Mike had a near fatal fall 18 feet off of a ladder, and by the grace of God he survived, but their company did not. Mike went into rehabilitation and they were forced to confront the stack of bills they could no longer pay. It took 39 months, but they paid the business and personal debt off at a total of over $76,000.00.

Today, she applies the lessons learned from UNEQ and her training as a financial coach, project manager, strategic planner, and attorney to work with other entrepreneurs to implement positive and powerful changes to help their businesses thrive and grow.
