He later joined Stratton Oakmont, a brokerage firm which was run by Jordan Belfort, who later became known as the "The Wolf of Wall Street". After joining, Bronson quickly became a partner.

Bronson went on to found his own broker-dealer firm, Biltmore Securities in South Florida and grew it from three people to more than 500, generating close to $100 million in annual revenue.
