In the 1990s, Belfort built one of the most dynamic and successful sales-organizations in Wall Street history. To this day, his proprietary sales-training techniques and daily motivational speeches are the ‘stuff of legend’— earning him a reputation as a ‘motivator without peer,’ his testimonials confirm he can take virtually any individual, regardless of age, race, sex, educational background or social status, and empower them to attain goals they never dreamed themselves capable of.
Over the last twenty years, Belfort has soared to the highest financial heights, earning over $50 million a year as the notorious Wolf of Wall Street—and then sunk to the lowest societal-lows, succumbing to a massive drug addiction and doing 22 months in a Federal prison camp. Yet, along the way, he managed to provide over $1billion of financing for various public companies, and held controlling stakes in more than thirty of them. He’s acted as a consultant to more than fifty public companies, and has been written about in virtually every major newspaper and magazine in the world, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Los Angeles Times, The London Times, The Herald Tribune, Le Monde, Corriere della Serra, Forbes, BusinessWeek, Paris Match and Rolling Stone.
Today, his life represents the ultimate redemption story. After barely surviving his rise and fall as an American entrepreneurial icon, he is now twelve-years-sober and a world-renowned motivational speaker, who assists both people and organizations in breaking through whatever barriers hold them back from achieving success. Whether speaking to a roomful of hard-charging salesman or to a jam-packed convention center filled with ‘everyday people,’ Belfort’s teachings captivate and inspire his audience, and provide them with all the necessary tools to create instant, measurable, and lasting success.
Jordan Belfort’s two bestselling books have been published in twenty-two countries and translated into eighteen different languages. He is a frequent guest-commentator on CNN, CNBC, Headlines News and the BBC.
