The Wolf of Wall Street, one of the top films of 2014 is based on the true story of New York stock broker Jordan Belfort. The film is quite an accurate portrayal of Mr. Belfort's life, as skeptical as one would be after seeing the movie!
Yesterday I had the wonderful opportunity to see Jordan Belfort, the Real Wolf of Wall Street live,as he discussed with us his life experience, the movie, entrepreneurship, sales and achieving success.
As I heard Jordan speak, I could not help but realize how many of his principles can be applied to our day to day lives as Traders. In this article, I will share some of his best materials for success and my interpretation for everyday practical use in a trading environment.
Movie Fun Facts
