We had the good fortune of connecting with Kevieonta Chester and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kevieonta, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
My thought process behind starting my business was solely to educate everyone on financial independence, credit building and saving.

What should our readers know about your business?
Kevieonta’s Financial Services was started in 2018 shortly after I graduated college and realized the real world had started. I was fortunate enough to be blessed with two job opportunities in my field before graduating but shortly realized just making money wasn’t all there is to it when it comes to being an adult. Credit, budgeting, saving and investing are literally the keys to financial freedom. I also realized the lack of information and resources regarding financial education made available to myself and my community prior to graduating college. I wanted to be involved in changing that narrative for others like me.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
The first group of people I would love to shout out of course is my hometown of Raceland, LA. I would not be the person I am today had I not been from Raceland. Secondly, I would like to thank my OPW family who taught me “Chargers never walk alone”. That school taught me the importance of coming together and how much stronger we are once we work together. Lastly I would like to give credit to THEE SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY for making me the professional I am today. We have a saying at SU “If you can make it here you can make it anywhere”.
