About this event


COVID has kicked our butts big time. We feel like the walking dead. We’re drained; mentally, emotionally, and financially. Figuring out our finances and money for 2021 is numero-uno on the list. GOOD NEWS the cavalry is here with a financial vaccine and energy booster to kick-start into 2021 successfully. 

Join us on January 13th as we welcome Ortus Academy co-founders Aaron Velky and Josh Massey as they help revolutionize financial education and provide you with the tools to put real Benjamins in the bank in 2021

Ortus Academy is a financial education leader, revolutionizing finance, and providing you with new tools to change your financial trajectory. Their 90-minute workshop will show you how to: 

Develop a deeper understanding of money and your relationship with it.

Determine your Money Personality so you can see your financial and money strengths and weaknesses and how they show up in your life. The Ortus Academy Money Personality Test and Guide will provide you with insights on your spending behaviors and attitudes, and give you tips to improve them.

Use the Ortus Academy proprietary Money Positioning Goals and Budgeting System to help you keep track of your sources and uses of money, determine your net worth, and provide you with insights on how to better manage your financial life to put more of your Benjamin’s in the bank and not someone else's. Ortus's Money Positioning System helps you plan out your year and grow your saving 3x.

Let’s put 2020 behind us and start 2021 with a more solid financial foundation so you can grow and be better prepared to absorb the next shock with less anxiety and worry. 

Non-Political Disclaimer:  We are unabashedly proud to have Aaron, Josh, and Ortus Academy as part of our Columbia Chapter and the Startup Grind global community.
