Many people have definitely watched “The Wolf of Wall Street” starring Leonardo DiCaprio in the lead role. The movie earned five Oscar nominations, including Actor in a leading role and Best movie of the year.

The movie is actually based on a real life character, Jordan Belfort. He is considered by many economy experts the “Real wolf of Wall Street”.

In this documentary, he talks about sales, and how to be a better salesman. In general, he tries to explain to the public how to become more persuasive in everything you do in life.

If there is any teacher that can help you become more persuasive, that is Belfort. He went to jail in 1999, pleading guilty to securities fraud and money laundering. He was sentenced in 2003 to four years in prison, but served only 22 months.

After getting out of jail, he published his first memoir, the Wolf of Wall Street. He then published his second book, “Catching the Wolf of Wall Street”.
