Catching the Wolf of Wall Street
Jordan Belfort was born in Queens, New York, the son of accountants 'his mother wanted him to be a doctor'. He hustled ices to put himself through college showing early entrepreneurial flair. His first business sent him bankrupt at 24 so he went down to Wall St with $100 in his pocket and through a series of wild coincidences and leaps of logic ended up building one of the largest brokerages in America the now infamous Stratton Oakmont. Ultimately indicted by the federal government, Belfort served twenty-two months in prison, spent one month in rehab, and is currently living in Los Angeles, California.
