Intro

Jordan Belfort, often called the Wall Street Wolf, from his previous books, lifestyle, business and now movie, was born to accountant parents Max and Lear Belfort in 1962. He's renowned for owning the most notorious brokerage firm on Wall Street during the nineties, Stratton Oakmont but actually, he was on Long Island, not Wall Street. His sales methods, and his desire to become famous and rich, led him to establish Stratton Oakmont; which was a firm that sold inexperienced investors valueless stocks, and abandoned them once the stocks plummeted. The racket led to a 22 month term in jail and Jordan was forced to repay those he had defrauded. While running Stratton Oakmont, he made over $1 billion dollars from the over 1,000 loyal employees he contracted to do the penny stocks sales to investors. Jordan and his workforce got rich quickly, they lived life in the fast lane, abusing drugs and partying hard.

After Prison Ventures

Books

While serving his supposedly 4 years jail term, which became only 22 months after collaborating with the authorities on his case, Jordan was lucky, or otherwise, to share a jail room with Tommy Chong, serving his 9 months sentence after a sentence of selling drug paraphernalia online. Tommy encouraged Jordan to write his life story, after listening to the tale of his life. Belfort's two publications; The Wolf of Wall Street and Catching the Wolf of Wall Street, have make him a mulit millionaire. As well as the publications, one of his titles has been adapted into a film with the same name, The Wall Street Wolf, starring Matthew McConaughey and Leonardo Dicaprio.

Speaking at Business Events

Suffice to say, Jordan Belfort possessed the drive, will power and brains to earn profits and spend it in the manner he chose. Although his methods landed him in prison, now he is a legitimate businessman, who says he learned from his errors and is a reformed character. Jordan travels the world giving motivational business talks to budding entrepreneurs and industrial gurus. He earns around $30,000 from each speech, a modest sum in comparison with his earnings from Stratton Oakmont, but he has successfully inspired many business-oriented people on good, honourable ways of making large sums of money. In the modern world, the emphasis is on becoming wealthy, regardless of the methods, thus Jordan Belfort feels obligated to educate corporations and individuals about ethical business methods, so that the profits and/or profit methods do not get other people in trouble with the law, like they did with him.

Conclusion

Jordan Belfort became a multi millionaire quickly, with his scam stock brokerage company, Stratton Oakmont, during the nineties, however he paid the price; serving twenty-two months in prison and paying more than $110,000,000.00 in compensatio From his quick rise to riches, and fast spending, as well as jail term and rehab, Jordan learnt valuable lessons, which he, now, travels around the world teaching. He shows people how to surmount their obstacles and take ethical business choices, which spares others from suffering the hardship his actions caused in the past. More here yes
