Sarano Kelley

Author, Trainer and Coach, The Kelley Group, Intl.

The founder of The Game and author of The Game: Win Your Life in 90 Days, Sarano Kelley grew up in the gang-infested neighborhood of Brownsville, New York. His life changed for the better when, at sixteen years old, he was accepted into Vassar College. By the age of 23 he was incredibly successful, pulling in over $400,000 in commissions as a Wall Street stockbroker. At the height of this success came personal tragedy as a sudden fire claimed the lives of members of Kelley’s family. This was a turning point for Kelley, driving him towards a new journey, and a life based on the dual principles of balance and purpose.

Throughout the course of his career as a motivational speaker and life coach, Kelley has trained over 250,000 people. In his role as media coach, he trained many corporate leaders and government representatives, including President Clinton’s White House Fellows and General Colin Powell. Since his trainees are frequently interviewed on networks such as CNN, and for shows like 20/20 and 60 Minutes, Kelley coaches them on how to handle themselves, and their stories, under pressure.

For several years Kelley has been ranked as the number one speaker at the Securities Industry Association at the Wharton School of Business. His not-for-profit foundation applies the basic principles of his ABC primetime special for children, The Game: Winning at Life, to schools across the nation. Kelley and his team of financial literacy advocates speak out about the need for a universal approach to teaching fiscal education and responsibility. Their efforts have created a national dialogue that has ultimately created a unified financial literacy campaign in the financial services industry.

In November 2009, VH1 premiered the docudrama Broke and Famous, the story of the powerful journey undertaken by former child-star Willie Aames. The show followed Aames as he worked to pull himself back into financial prosperity with Kelley’s coaching. The docudrama served as a catalyst for the IAFSCA’s launch of the Stand Up for Financial Literacy Campaign (STAND4FL).
