#115 Traditional education fails to teach financial literacy with Jay Morrison

Jay Morrison

Jay is an educator, business mogul, influencer and the CEO and founder of the historic Tulsa Real Estate Fund; the first black-owned real estate crowdfunds and the Jay Morrison Academy; a financial institution which was named Inc. 500’s 13th top financial institutions in 2018. Beating the odds after growing up in poverty, dropping out of high school and serving time in prison for drug trafficking, Jay was able to turn his life around by breaking into real estate and becoming one of the industry’s biggest influencers. This path would not only keep him off the streets, but would eventually lead him to build two 8 figure businesses, teach 50 inner city corner classes across 26 cities, and author two best-selling books. Jay’s mission is to serve the underserved and assist working-class families primarily by increasing their access to financial literacy and wealth education. Jay’s academy offers affordable, relatable and easily accessible online wealth education courses. Jay’s infamous “Corner Classes,” in which he lectures on street corners in primarily urban communities on topics including real estate investing and general wealth building attracts crowds of hundreds. Jay’s Real Estate Fund raised over $10mm in its first 7 days after its IPO. The Tulsa Real Estate Fund’s mission is to combat gentrification, revitalize urban and be a funding source for working-class individuals and families to passively invest in real estate for as little as $500. Jay is an economic trailblazer and is truly on a lifelong mission to bridge the wealth gap and provide accessible education and business.
