We are constantly learning and evolving. It’s the only way to thrive in this world. A huge part of that is learning from anyone and everyone you can.

So, when I got the opportunity to learn from someone who had both made hundreds of millions of dollars and subsequently lost them, I jumped at the chance. Often the greatest lessons come in learning from others’ mistakes.

Jordan Belfort – the real ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ – is an undeniably controversial character. He’s famed for the Leonardo DiCaprio / Martin Scorcese film of his extraordinary life as a Wall St broker and the consequences of those actions which ultimately landed him in prison.

Now, he uses his talents for communicating as a positive force, training people all over the world in the how to use his sales techniques to create value-driven, incredibly successful businesses.

Love him or hate him, he’s a fascinating character with a remarkable story to tell.

In this episode we dig deep into his Straight Line selling technique, into the journey that saw him become one of the most renowned names in Wall Street, and how he rebuilt a life from that point – all thanks to chance encounter in prison.

What can everyone learn from ‘the Wolf’ about sales and service? How has his life turned around since those days at Stratton Oakmont? And, of course, what’s it like having Leonardo DiCaprio learn your every move and mannerism?

Key takeaways:

  • The Straight Line system, increasing sales through value-driven sales techniques and the psychology behind them
  • The journey to becoming the Wolf of Wall Street, before the lights and cameras of Hollywood
  • Turning life around – how to come back from losing it all
  • The power of positivity on every aspect of life and business
  • Success in the absence of ethics and integrity is failure
