Who Is Dr. Jorge Valdés?
Do you remember the television program “Miami Vice” with its powerful drug cartels, daily million-dollar drug deals, fast money, fast cars, fast women, good guys-bad guys, cops and robbers, all set in some of the swankiest locations on earth? Dr. Jorge Luis Valdés lived and experienced the real-life of Miami Vice.
Dr. Valdés was 20 years old when he dreamed of becoming a millionaire before he was 30. He had everything -technically speaking- to make his dream come true: family, education, a brilliant mind, and an enormous capacity for effort and sacrifice. He showed great promise but succumbed to the temptation of money and power. Seduced by a group of Colombian businessmen, who at that time were the biggest importers of cocaine, Dr. Valdés put his financial brain at their service.
By the early age of 21, Dr. Valdés became a drug lord and largest importer of cocaine. As a millionaire playboy, Dr. Valdes made between one and three million dollars a month. He had gorgeous women, yachts, private jets, and mansions all over the world. He had everything the world wanted, and yet he felt miserable. He endured prison, torture, and betrayal and yet he envied people who could be happy with a simple life.
While serving a prison sentence, Dr. Valdés earned a bachelor’s degree in Bible from Southeastern College. Upon his release from prison, in 1995, Dr. Valdés earned a Master’s Degree from Wheaton College, and in 2001 Dr. Valdés completed his Ph.D. in New Testament from Loyola University in Chicago.
Today, Dr. Jorge Valdés is a much thought after speaker and spends the majority of his time writing books, mentoring few selected leaders, speaking, and simply being a dad. His first book, Coming Clean, was published worldwide by WaterBrook Press (a division of Random House/Doubleday) in September 1999, and that same year, Vida Publishers published Cuentas Claras. In June of 2018, Ediciones Logos published Jorge’s second Spanish book, Cerebro Narco. His second English book, Narco Mindset, along with Narco Mindset Workbook, were recently published by SLT Publishing and available through Amazon.
