This Speech from the Wolf of Wall Street is Shallow, Inappropriate and Amazing!


You work in sales. You’ve seen the Wolf of Wall Street. If you work in sales but haven’t seen the Wolf of Wall Street, go see it right now. While it’s not as gritty and serious as director Martin Scorsese’s other masterpieces like Taxi Driver or Casino and Goodfellas, it’s also the quintessential sales movie, along with Boiler Room, and Glengarry Glen Ross. In this scene, the movie’s protagonist Jordan Belfort, played by Leonardo DiCaprio, gives an epic speech to motivate his team of unscrupulous, greedy brokers to start making calls. While the message is clearly unethical, it can also be a huge motivator if you’re willing to look past all of the juvenile aspects. Enjoy!
