Our Story 01

Our Story

Working Together To Financially Empower America

The BrightMoney Academy was founded in October of 2015. Scott McLaine, Founder and CEO organized a Community Empowerment Luncheon, filled the room, took to the stage and revealed a national epidemic called financial Illiteracy that is affecting nearly 50% of American households.

“The Solution,” Scott said, “is to create awareness, get people talking about money, and to deliver the class that teaches us all how to grow and accumulate wealth.” He said “We all need to take that class that was missing from our upbringing.”

The BrightMoney Academy is now delivering world class financial literacy and wealth creation training to residents and employees statewide.

Our Belief

Every Person Can Prosper Financially

We believe that every person can, and should prosper financially and grow wealthy.

Learning about money, how it works, and how to have it work for you are equally as important as having the proper mindset and being driven by your reasons why.
