Between completing high school and starting college, Belfort and his close childhood friend Elliot Loewenstern earned $20,000 selling Italian ice from Styrofoam coolers to people at a local beach. Belfort planned on using the money earned with Loewenstern to pay for a dental-school qualification and he enrolled in the Baltimore College of Dental Surgery; however, he left after the dean of the school said to him on his first day at the college: “The golden age of dentistry is over. If you’re here simply because you’re looking to make a lot of money, you’re in the wrong place.” Belfort eventually graduated from American University with a degree in biology.
After graduating, Belfort became a door-to-door meat and seafood salesman in Long Island, New York. He claims in interviews and his memoirs that the business was an initial success; he grew his meat-selling business to employ several workers and sold 5,000 pounds of beef and fish a week.
