Guy's a marketing genius, for sure. Was able to come back and become a successful speaker/sales trainer after losing everything and spending time in jail which would ruin most people for life.

I've taken one of his training courses, Straight Line Persuasion. I didn't pay for it, a friend gave it to me after he used it in his company. I found it useful for sure, Jordan isn't the ultimate sales pro (obviously he did have to do some shady shit in order to get so successful,) but he does know a lot about tonality and presentation for phone sales.ย 

I don't know how I feel about him as a person. He's not the best guy out there, but also isn't the worst.ย

Thanks for the course suggestionย 
Agree to what you've said about JB. Happened to check few of his webinars and ads he run.ย

Everyone deserves a second chance to clean up and make amends. He's using his past misdoings to help people out now and I'm for it.

Low-effort posts are a hallmark of a Monday.

What are YOUR thoughts on Mr. Belfort?

His book is junk, almost all fluff talking about how awesome he and his system is. It is 2/3 of him reliving his glory days and telling war stories you already saw in the movie.

I think he's a good salesman, shady AF, but good at what he does.

I find the majority of 'sales influencers' on youtube are similar to your local sales trainer. It's the ones that have less followings that give the real advice - as it isn't for money (at first).

Guy is an absolute piece of shit. You can absolutely learn things from him but we shouldn't celebrate him and it's disappointing to see him making so much money after hurting so many people.
