To say that Dawnna St Louis’ life started off rocky would be an understatement.
But instead of letting these challenges hinder her success, they are a core part of what’s fueled her to become a top-selling author, successful entrepreneur, and keynote speaker to the likes of Microsoft, US Federal Courts, Merck, and many others.
In a recent interview, Dawnna recalled living in her car as a teenage girl. “If my life was handed to me on a silver platter, I wouldn’t be as driven to discover my purpose,” she said.
Instead of feeling sorry for herself, the author of books such as “6ix Kick-Ass Strategies of the Million Dollar Entrepreneur”, turned her early life setbacks into a springboard for growth.
“My guidance counselor said that I am like a kite using adversities and setbacks to rise against the wind. This has made me obsessed with helping people use obstacles as stepping stones to build a thriving business“, she said.
As a serial entrepreneur, Dawnna founded three multi-million dollar businesses including a $250M tech consultancy. Today, she travels the globe as international speaker and CEO of Biz On Fire Academy and Retreats. Dawnna says, “At Biz On Fire we strive to develop multi-million dollar businesses, one entrepreneur at a time.”
"This is a game changer! Dawnna St. Louis is correct when she shares that this book will help you get your sh*t together. As an entrepreneur it can be difficult to manage it all and know if your efforts are truly paying off.
The 6ix will help you structure your day, challenge you to differentiate yourself from everyone else out there, and market like you mean it. The fact is we all want to beat the competition, and make a lot of money for our efforts; this book is your guide to doing so. I saw a difference in my business within the first 30 days of using the 6ix!
This is a must read for anyone who is serious about the success of their business!"
That is just one of the several testimonials from entrepreneurs and sales pros that have used The 6ix to positively and measurably impact their business.
While Dawnna is the author of several top selling books including the Audacious Acts of Successful Women and Yolo, her latest on entrepreneurship - The 6ix Kick-Ass Strategies of the Million Dollar Entrepreneur, delivers the Business Blueprint - a methodology that Dawnna used to start her own $250M tech consultancy and several other multi-million dollar business venture. It dives a little deeper with goal setting, daily actions, and accountability to ensure that the reader has the tools needed to find success.
The edgy, fun, and educational book has been such a game-changer for entrepreneurs that a five-page article about the 6ix has been featured twice on the cover of Writer's Digest - including the Writer's Digest Annual Yearbook of top articles.
There is a roadmap to building a successful business. Usually it is passed down from CEO to future CEO, leaving those who are out of the lineage out of the loop.
That is until now!
Before Dawnna started her first business, she and her soon-t0-be business partner, Allen Warren, worked on a college project to discover the DNA of all business. In doing so, they found that all businesses had four fundamental areas - focus, finance, function, and future. They then began the tedious work of proving their theory by mapping the DNA of thousands of business. What they discovered changed the game. They knew the secret to business success and what caused most businesses to fail.
All they needed to do was prove their theory by putting into practice.
The result of their class project was a $250M tech consultancy and several other multi-million dollar ventures. Sure, it took hard work, but having a roadmap ensured the duo would avoid major roadblocks and pitfalls along the way.
Today, Dawnna has started her fifth successful business. As the CEO of Biz On Fire; an Entrepreneurial Academy, Accountability, and Goal Setting consultancy, Dawnna guides entrepreneurs through the same roadmap that brought her so much success.
Dawnna's dream is to help entrepreneurs build the business of their dreams and get rich doing it.
Biz on Fire's goal is to create multi-million dollar businesses, one entrepreneur at a time.
