Sarano Kelley, Founder of The Game and Author of, “The Game: Win Your Life in 90 Days,” grew up in a gang-infested neighborhood of Brownsville, New York. At 16 years old he Kelley was accepted and began his studies at Vassar College. By the time he reached the age of 23 he was already earning 400,000 dollars in commissions as a Wall Street Stockbroker. It was at the height of his professional success when a family tragedy occurred and Kelley lost some of his beloved family members in a sudden fire. The somber experience was the driving force behind Kelley’s journey of new beginnings where he discovered how to produce results, while achieving a life mounted on the principles of balance and purpose.
Kelley’s experience as a Motivational Speaker and Life Coach has allowed him to train more than 250,000 people. While serving as a media coach, Kelley trained several corporate leaders and government representatives. Because his trainees were frequently interviewed on CNN, 20/20 and 60 Minutes, it was up to Kelley to properly prepare these individuals for their highly publicized stories. His media coach experience also gave Kelley an opportunity to coach President Clinton’s White House Fellows, a leadership group which included Gen. Colin Powell.
For several years running now, Kelley has been rated as the number one speaker at the Securities Industry Association at the Wharton School of Business. Kelley has appeared on, “Good Morning America,” and his not for profit foundation applies the same principles to schools across the nation and in his own ABC TV primetime television special for children called “The Game: Winning at Life.”
On Nov. 5, 2009, VH1 premiered, “Broke and Famous,” a docudrama showcasing the powerful journey of former child-star, Willie Aames. The show trails Aames as he pulls himself back into financial prosperity with the help of Kelley’s unique coaching style. The financial docudrama was a heart-felt story of redemption and also served as the catalyst for the IAFSCA’s launch of the Stand Up for Financial Literacy Campaign (STAND4FL).
Kelley and his team of financial literacy advocates continue to speak out about the need of a universal approach to fiscal education and responsibly. So far, their efforts have fostered a national dialogue around the issue and have ultimately creating the largest unified financial literacy campaign in the financial service industry.
