Building Wealth without Wall Street with Joey Mure and Russ Morgan

Welcome back to the Passive Wealth Strategies show. Today we meet our guests Joey Mure and Russ Morgan to talk about escaping the main street and the road to financial freedom.


Wealth Without Wall Street’s Founder and Partner, Russ Morgan, is known as “The Idea Guy.” Russ began his professional career as an investment advisor in 2004 after graduating from Auburn University — a slight foray from 10-year-old Russ’ dream of becoming a professional baseball pitcher. After obtaining his CFP in 2008, Russ started IBC the following year, and eventually went on to found Wealth Without Wall Street in 2015. Russ’ creativity, fresh ideas, and knack for problem-solving are indispensable assets to his role at Wealth Without Wall Street. Russ hopes to be remembered as an innovator who loved to teach others, and he has a goal to one day serve in the mission field. 


Joey Mure, Founder and Partner at Wealth Without Wall Street, brings impact, integrity, and generosity to the company every day. He hopes to be remembered as a lover of Jesus, devoted husband, and faithful father. Despite dreaming, around age 10, of becoming an orthopedic surgeon, Joey was in the mortgage business for 11 years before moving to finance.  Joey’s strengths in building relationships, asking great questions, and influencing and empowering people with the Wealth Without Wall Street message make him invaluable to the company’s mission. He is relational, impactful, and a true leader.

About the Host

Taylor on stage

Hi, I’m Taylor. I help busy professionals escape the Wall Street Casino and build wealth on Main Street by investing in real estate. I started the Passive Wealth Strategy Show because I realized that the typical “skip that $3 latte once a week” financial advice does not produce the life of abundance that so many Busy Professionals desire.

I help passive investors invest in multifamily and self storage real estate syndications through my company NT Capital.
