Greed Is Good

Judging from the Martin Scorsese treatment of the memoirs of the "Wolf of Wall Street" Jordan Belfort -- there are some things in life we might never want to ask Belfort for advice on. Like how to properly treat the little-people community like actual human beings (Belfort and his coworkers reportedly took turns tossing dwarves at a bull's-eye at an office party) or what are the hygiene risks related to lying naked in a big pile of money. (He reportedly confessed to once having sex with his wife on $3 million in cash.) But where Belfort could totally excel at life advice would be wealth creation and business building, as he has engineered more than $1.5 billion in financing for various public companies. Belfort is presenting his Wall Street life lessons and tales of his historic fall from grace in a one-night-only appearance at Broward Center's Au Rene Theater. Attendees will learn things like "How to convince anyone, anytime, to buy your product or service" and "How to overcome your limiting beliefs about money." While Belfort may not be winning any humanitarian awards anytime soon, the two-time best-selling author and businessman has helped the masses in his own way, with published works that have been translated into 25 languages in 75 countries. The Broward Center for the Performing Arts is located at 201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets cost $119 to $499. Call 855-965-3868, or visit
