HOW AN EX-DRUG DEALER, CHANGED HIS LIFE AND MADE AMERICAN HISTORY IN THE PROCESS
At the age of 18 @mrjaymorrison was facing 3 years to life in prison for drug trafficking and a weapons charge.
He bailed himself out and was able to beat the case because of an illegal search and seizure by the Cumberland, MD police department.
After relapsing in and out of hustling for a few years, he went cold turkey and quit the drug game at the age of 25. Determined to make a better life for himself and his family he focused his entrepreneurial talents on real estate.
He became a real estate agent and in a few years with no experience rose to the top ranks of high-end real estate sales in Northen New Jersey.
After realizing he could make more money investing he left being an agent and became an entrepreneur.
Never the one to rest on his laurels, last year he made history by launching the first-ever black-owned equity crowdfund in American history.
The Tulsa Real Estate Fund has a $50 million dollar market cap. Some of its assets include a 98 unit apartment complex and an office building that's under construction. When completed it will house office space, production studios, and classrooms.
In episode 38 of the @earnyourleisure show he detailed his journey from transitioning from the streets to real estate, he also gave insight and broke-down key real estate terms and strategies, as well as outlining the vision for the Tulsa Fund.
EYL 38 will be out today at 5 pm est.
