Jordan Belfort talks about his time in jail, what he thinks of connected people who DIDN’T spend time in jail, and the famous cellmate that convinced him to write a book.
Around the 24 minute mark in the interview, Belfort shares what he thinks about insider trading and Nancy Pelosi.
Also, he lays out why ordinary people should never hire an ‘expert’ for their investing, but should just stick their money in an investment fund.
He talks about sharing a cell with Tommy Chong, and how Chong talked him into writing a book.
He didn’t have to hire a ghost-writer for his story, because he stumbled on a ‘cheat code’ for fast-tracking from rookie writer to someone who sounds like a seasoned pro.
He found a mentor, of sorts, after reading a book he wanted to emulate. He became such a good student of that author that his publisher asked if that same author had written his sample pages for him.
As you might imagine, the interview covers a lot of ground and is worth watching in full.
