Meet Dawn Brolin…
Dawn Brolin is a people-loving Certified Public Accountant and Managing Member of Powerful Accounting, LLC – a nationally recognized accounting, tax and consulting firm. You won’t find the stereotypical, boring accounting process with her! Dawn makes your business a fine-tuned, money-making machine with a spring in her step and smile on her face.
Armed with numerous professional certifications (currently studying for the Certified Fraud Examiner License), Dawn specializes in entity structures, IRS representation, forensic accounting, and bankruptcy accounting and reporting.
With more than sixteen years in the field, Dawn has in-depth accounting expertise, coupled with a personal understanding of the challenges of running a business. Through her experiences as a business owner, she has discovered the importance of the relationship between good accounting records, good business processes, and running a successful business. Because of this, Dawn worked with prestigious companies such as Intuit, TSheets, Fundera, Skyline Cloud Services, SmartVault, and many more.
Named one of the “Top 40 Under 40” by CPA Technology Magazine as well as “Top 25 Most Powerful Women in Accounting” (2012-2016) five years running, Dawn has been published in books such as The World’s Most Inspiring Accountants.
Known for her entertaining and fun presentation style, Dawn has been featured on the MSNBC show Your Business, and has spoken at national conferences including Intuit QuickBooks Connect Conference, Cleveland Ohio Society of CPA’s, Live Your Legacy, Scaling New Heights, Spark & Hustle and Tory Johnson, TD Bank North, and many others. She finds that when speaking in front of accountants, business owners, managers, and other professionals, her ability to entertain and educate makes topics interesting, whether it’s about accounting, growing your business, or a simple success story.
It’s important for Dawn and her team to give back and in 2016 she created the Team Brolin Give Back Program. Each Powerful Team Member selects a charity for a specific quarter and proceeds from the sale of Powerful Accounting, LLC “swag” is donated to the organization.
Dawn’s greatest lesson imparted by her parents is to leave people better than she found them. She’s worked hard to get where she is and enjoys sharing her wisdom with others so they too can achieve their business dreams and goals. She is also a loving wife to her husband Kevin, and the most proud mother in the world to her daughters Emily and Kayla.
