The Broke Black Girl was created by St. Louis native, Dasha Kennedy, a speaker, author and international budget coach. What has birthed from her personal financial hardships evolved into the key to financial freedom for black women across the world. The Broke Black Girl is an online platform that connects, educates and empowers minority women to financial and mental wellness. The Broke Black Girl provides a safe and supportive space for women to openly discuss their financial hardships and seek free assistance from the professionals in the group, such as myself, with credit restoration, budgeting, money and time management, wealth building and mental wellness. The platform has exceeded 60,000 women within one year, reaching women in 38 states and 96 countries.
Kennedy encourages women to have several sources of income, which has set off a chain reaction and many of the women are seeking entrepreneurship. Kennedy believes the tools obtained from The Broke Black Girl and strategic partners will fully equip the aspiring "Girlpreneurs" with the tools needed to successfully operate a profitable business.
