Have you watched the movie, The Wolf of Wall Street? If yes, then do you have any idea by whom this movie has been inspired? If not, then let me tell you that this film is based on the memoir of an experienced stockbroker and author of America.
He is Jordan Belfort. This person is best known for his memoir on which the film with a similar title has been made. Jordan is a graduate in biology. He also did join a reputed university but did not continue further.
Other than being a stockbroker, and author, Jordan also motivates people through his speeches. But there is one dark side to this person. He is an offender of serious crime. Why I am saying this is because Jordan had been accused of cheating and manipulation in the stock market and other unlawful activity.

Every week, around 5k pounds of non-veg food items got sold. Later on, he got a job in a U.S-based investment banking firm, after filing for bankruptcy. There he worked as a trainee in stockbroking. Once the boss of this company suggested to him 3 unusual top secrets to taste success in life.
These secrets were cocaine, sex for business, and hand job. Jordan made progress from this firm when suddenly, he experienced a down crash in the stock market. But this did not affect him so deeply, as he made plans on how to make money.

When NASD Got Hold Of Jordan’s Fraudulent Business
Jordan even gave employment to more and more people in stockbroking, and others under the management section. But little did he have the clue that his business was being watched by NASD. They kept a hawk-eye on the transactions of Jordan’s company. At last, during December, NASD got hold of his fraudulent business and ceased its membership. This resulted in Jordan’s company left with no business.
