Two Sacramento entrepreneurs bring together a wealth-building experience that plans to educate community members about financial literacy.

Local entrepreneurs Kelan Johnson and Cherokee Moore are bringing “The Level Up Xperience (XP)” to the Guild Theater, located at 2828 35th Street on Friday.

Together, the duo form Conscious Assets, where they seek to connect with other business-minded individuals looking to expand their network and build relationships.

They plan to provide tutorials and information on how to leverage social media branding, non-fungible tokens (NFTs), cryptocurrency, and more.

“This event will bring valuable insights not just for businesses (owners) and how to expand their reach to gain more followers and customers,” Johnson said. “As well as understanding future technology and how NFTs are going to play a vital role in how we do business and give control back to people, artists and entrepreneurs.”

The news-based event begins Friday at 6 p.m., followed by a mix hosted at Slim & Husky’s, 3413 Broadway in Oak Park, beginning at 9:30 p.m.

Tickets are $25. VIP tickets are $39.99. Purchase of a VIP ticket includes a t-shirt, 3D-printed Bitcoin keychain, Bitcoin/Ledger raffle, lanyard, and a “buy one, get one” drink at the mixer at Slim & Huskies.

“It doesn’t matter if you’ve made millions of dollars in your career or work a regular 9-to-5, you need to be at this event,” Moore said. “You will learn how to build your brand and maximize it to its fullest potential.”

Limited places are available.

Level Up The XP is a community platform that provides clarity and perspective in different areas of entrepreneurship. It was founded by Johnson, a Sacramento native determined to navigate entrepreneurship and build generational wealth through real estate.

His partnership with Moore, one of Northern California’s top mortgage consultants, has been effortless as they both seek to teach the communities they come from about financial literacy, hoping to break through the generational poverty that has plagued neighborhoods.
