Arnold Schwarzenegger, Workout King Turned Governor of California

Best Built Man in the World

Arnold Schwarzenegger was was born in Austria in 1947 and lived in a rather strict household. He possessed, even in his earliest years, a determination to become something big. Young Arnold had the same innate traits that young Donald Trump battled with in his youth. He contained his emotions, and struggled with a ferocity in his mind felt the need to do something grand and take control of his life. These are the true markings of an entrepreneur, but Arnold had an obstacle that Donald Trump need not worry about, but this problem was very much a part of Schwarzenegger's reality. 

The communist party which was formed in 1918 was gaining tremendous power in the 1940s. Its founders and supporters were a handful of leftist democrats who presented their position as a system for the working man; a plan to help the poor and to force the rich to tow the line. Under such pretence the party was gaining wide favor in Europe and its consequences were staggering. 

Communism continued to grow and remained a world wide threat of personal freedom until U.S. President Ronald Reagan strategized a way to end the threat by hitting the USSR in its weakest point, its economy. By crippling its people Russia had no economy on which to stand and therefore when it was building endless deadly weapons in which to conquer freedom, the United States would keep topping it by building its own weapons until the USSR went bankrupt. At that time Ronald Reagan had proven the superiority of a free market system and conquered the threat of a nuclear war all in one fell swoop. But all this excitement happened in the 1980s, and Arnold was living in Austria in the 1950s, freedom was a long way and a long time away.

Countries such as Hungary were among the first to establish themselves under the stifling communist party as it had become the Hungarian Soviet Republic, the USSR was empowered by the murders of the Romanoffs, and the communist army had defeated Romania, while poor little Austria did not stand a fighting chance at freedom as they were ruled by social democrats. 

To a strong thinking young man such as Arnold, who did not dream of getting a military job that would merely keep him from becoming poor, but wanted to be free to live the life that he fancied and Schwarzenegger realized early on that the only way to ever think big and reap the rewards of being different and creative was to live in America, were onethis simply would not do. Arnold realized that in America one could buy a Cadillac and live in it if one chose, or one could do without a car and buy a house with his money; the sky could truly be the limit. Under the socialist system the average working man had to conform.

In Austria all the working class people had the exact same thing as one another and there was really no way out of the class in which one was born.

By Arnold's teenage years he felt trapped by the conformity of life and longed for more, and the way in which he challenged his need for greatness was by exercising. Bodybuilding was not regarded as a respectable sport in the 1950s and 60s, but due to the socialist democratic guidelines of life Schwarzenegger felt a rebellious desire to be doing just about anything and everything outside of the box to separate himself and his mind from becoming a democratic robot. He became so dedicated and eventually so well developed, that his father became proud of his sons' drive and determination. 

At the age of 20 Arnold became Mr. Universe, and his continued focus led him to move on to become Mr. Olympia for eight years in a row. This was no small feat due to the fact that many world class bodybuilders never achieve the Mr. Olympia title, even after years of giving it 100% dedication. 

Arnold knew that his physique would be his ticket to America, and his determination paid off. By the 1970s Arnold Schwarzenegger was winning the Mr. Olympia title every year. This effort, along with Arnold's extraordinary looks, attracted the attention of producers, leading to Schwarzenegger's appearance in Hercules in New York, and many guest appearances on sitcoms, talk shows and magazine interviews. Arnold was bridging his career from obscure bodybuilding champ, to celebrity. He knew he had to be patients, focused, and allow time to grow the seed.

Arnold was named in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most perfectly developed man in the world, in which his vital statistics were recorded as 22 inch biceps and chest of 58 inches of sold muscle.  This led to his biggest break when  in 1976 when he starred in the documentary drama, Pumping Iron. This was to be the movie that gave bodybuilding respectability and helped launch the name Arnold Schwarzenegger into the main stream of celebrities. He began making movies on a regular basis after that and he promptly retired from bodybuilding while remaining an icon of the workout world. 

After reaching celebrity status of the highest ranking in the 1980s when Arnold was riding high on the success of The Terminator, and various other film roles, Schwarzenegger became moved by the outstanding job that Ronald Reagan was doing during his presidency. Reagan came into office to face the worst economy since the 1930s, American hostages who were being held in Iran for three months, and the very serious threat of a nuclear war with Russia, only to quickly eliminate the hostage crisis by sending out a message to Iran after winning the election that things were going to be very different when he was in office, promptly resulting in the hostages being returned to America the day Reagan was inaugurated, proving his leadership which also pointed out the unsafe way in which Jimmy Carter had been weakly handling the crisis. He then made mince meat of the failing economy by giving all Americans a huge tax break, allowing them to pursue their interests with confidence.  Then by the end of his second term he had freed America of the threat of WWIII which soon led to the Berlin Wall being torn down by is newly free citizens.

Ronald Reagan was the Hercules of the free world, and although the negative attacks continued to pour in from the democrats, most Americans of the 1980s had 20/20 vision when it came right down to reality, and Arnold was in awe of a man who could maintain the freedom that he loved so much and chase away the stifling enemy that he himself had escaped. 

Arnold began to hope that someday he could be as great a man as President Ronald Reagan, and live with integrity, strength, and be instrumental in giving peace and freedom as Reagan had. Although Schwarzenegger married Maria Shriver, a woman who is connected to some of the most powerful democrats in the country, Arnold had lived through a lot of the realities that the democrats repeatedly try to put over on America and would never support the party that strangled his freedom as a youth, and murdered the Romanoffs. Maria Shriver and her family were not having to live under the restraints that their party was forever pushing, but he was not born into the wealth of the Kennedy family and could easily relate to being an immigrant who came to America to find a better life, and of being poor while dreaming of success.  He worked hard, and campaigned steadily to become governor of California, and true to Schwarzenegger's fashion, he achieved just that in 2003, while American hero Ronald Reagan suffered in his last year of life in his battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Schwarzenegger would have a hard lesson to learn this time around. The democrats controlled California, and there was little a governor could do to turn things around. Arnold was not well received by Republicans because he was governing like a democrat. He was not liked by democrats because he called himself a Republican, and therefore things were only slightly better in the stodgy state of California under his administration. All Califorians were pleased with his repealing the 200% increase in vehicle registration that the democrats were bent on, but when he signed a bill to legalize same sex marriage, he further alienated both parties again, as in 2004 traditional marriage was what the majority wanted. 

Arnold had accomplished just about everything he had set out to do, but becoming another Ronald Reagan in a sea of political opposition was just too tall an order. Schwarzenegger was then rocked personally when one of his live in staff came forward stating that she had a love child with the governor.

Arnold followed the example of the great president Ronald Reagan by not lying publicly when faced with opposition as Bill Clinton had, but coming out and telling the truth immediately. Although Reagan was faithful to his wife and did not have any sex scandals in his administration, he had liberals picking at his every move and when he himself believed that he had made a mistake, he did not cover it with any lies and tricky language, he simply told the truth, and Arnold took full and immediate responsibility for his actions.

These days Arnold is living a quiet life with his family and trying to make his family life his greatest achievement. Women's groups have snickered that Arnold had acted more like a Kennedy democrat than a Republican Reagan. They have pointed to his infidelities and his wife, Maria Shriver, true to the "Stepford Wife" democratic fashion, clinging to her man as Rose Kennedy did when Joe Kennedy had numerous affairs, and one notorious one with Gloria Swanson, and as Jackie Kennedy did when  democrat JFK made a fool of her by sleeping with everything under the sun. 

But Arnold will keep his sights set on what he wants to accomplish and will only find a way to profit on the negative publicity. He has written one tell all book about the Schwarzenegger scandal.

Sole Proprietorship, Taxes and Income

Profit made by sole proprietorship is income directly added to the tax return of the self-employed. Any loss is subtracted from other income on the tax return. If the loss is greater than other income on the tax return, it can be used against previous or future earnings. Because of this, a sole proprietorship is called a pass-through entity.Meaning the income passes through the business directly,and then to the individual taxpayer. The sole proprietor does not get a wage or salary. Any profit or loss the business makes is the sole proprietor's net income. Profit and Net are the same thing. Net gets taxed. The sole proprietor may end up with more or less money available than the amount shown as a profit or loss.

Domain Names; For Business and Profit

You Need A Domain Name

The typical cost of a domain name ranges from $10-25 per year, and there is no better way of putting your web site address on a business card or brochure for a business than having a very specific and relevant Domain name to your business.

Highly successful business developers will say that you need your own domain name to be successful. Because your goal is to build your business, not your competitors, and not affiliates business. This is a strong way to really build your brand online.
To search for available domain names click here.

Short, snappy domain names attract attention and are easy to remember. Inexpensive, personalized domain addresses are readily available. If you decide to get one of your own, it's worth taking the time to get it right. Make sure you have a name that is easy to remember, pertains to your business, and avoid non alphabetic and numeric characters whenever possible.

Short, clever word combinations are practically non existent as domain names. Even if they are not in use , domain squatters, people who buy and hold popular names in the hope of selling them to desperate high bidders later , have long since bought up common names. Give up on names such as, these names are long gone. However, you may find success with names that are a little longer or more specific easymoneybyjim, or locations easymoneydelmar. Most of these types of domain names are available.

  • Dashes. It's tempting to get exactly the domain name you want by adding extra characters, like dashes, between words. For example, you have no chance at getting but is still available. I strongly suggest you don't do it. Dashes cause tremendous confusion. People are likely to leave them out, confuse them with underscores, or have trouble finding the dash key one the keyboard.This could easily lead to a potential customer being led to a competitor. For example the person who got the name, in the first place. Some creative businesses have branded an acronym to their business. This is one way to avoid having trouble with getting the domain name you want. For example if The Pool Nannybranded themselves as TPN, those initials don't mean much until you have heard it in your neighborhood, and on local commercials, probably long after they have bought their domain name of TPN.
  • .com- The last few letters of the domain name are called the top-level domain. Most people will want a .com address for their business, and as a result they are the hardest domains to get. There are other domains such as net & org . The problem is that web visitors will assume you have a .com . If you have the domain name there is a good chance that someone will type in www.thepoolnanny,com while trying to find your site. This is another mistake that can easily lead your fans to a competitor
Point your own domain name to your blog:
When you create a hosted blog, your blog's address or URL, will display as part of the particular blogging platform you are on. For example if you are using WordPress, your blog address will be in the format http://thepoolnanny.wordpress.ocm, and if it's on blogger, it will be int he format You may leave as is,but many blog owners prefer to have their own domain show as their blog address: or if they want their blog to be part of their main website. For business blog owners especially, having your own domain as your blog address looks more professional, and it allows you to create a better brand association between your blog and your website. This brand reinforcement carries over if you are listing your blog on other places such as your Facebook page or even on printed marketing material such as brochures and business cards.

If you want your web address to have its own domain name, you will first need to purchase the web address you want. The cost will depend first on whether the domain name is available: if you buy a domain name that someone else owns, the price you will pay depends on how much the seller is willing to sell it for, which in turn depends on how much of a demand there is for that domain. If you buy a domain that isn't owned by anyone straight form a domain registrar like Go =Daddy, you pay much less. Domain names that end in .com are also usually more popular than other endings,like .net or .biz, so you will pay more for a .com domain than one that ends with .net. As a general estimate, an unused .com domain bought from a domain registrar will cost you in the region of 10 to 20 per year. You can also buy domain names directly through your blogging platform if you have a WordPress or Blogger blog.
Once you have bought your domain name, you will need to link it to the standard address that your blog was created with for example, You do this by changing the DNS settings for your domain name so that they point to the server where your blog is hosted>once you have updated the server settings, you may have to wait several hours for the change to take effect.

Once you have bought a domain name

You will now need to link it to the standard address that your blog has created with (for example, You do this by changing the DNS settings for your domain name is that they point to the server where your blog is hosted (the process is simple and well documented by both domain registrars and blogging tools) Once you have updated the server settings, you may have to wait several hours for the change to take effect.

How to Blog for Money

There comes a time when just about everyone ponders how to blog for money. Here at Entrepreneur Maker, we have talked about many ways of earning money- from How to Win in Horse Racing to how to improve the business you are currently running to increase profits. Now its time to learn how to blog for money!

Its not as easy and glamorous as it sounds. Of course what business is?

The most important thing is one must write posts every day and gain traffic. The learning of blogging comes slowly just as in any job you may have had. You may start out with a reasonable amount of knowledge, but once you actually put your hands on it, numerous details of how to improve the job and avoid pitfalls will be discovered. Blogging will be no different from any other job or business that you may have had, but one thing I can suggest to speed up the learning curve is that as a new blogger you should most definitely join a writing site. A site such as Hubpages, Infobarrel, or Zujava. I would even recommend joining all three of these, but if it sounds too overwhelming right now, at least join one of them. It you were to only join one, it should be Hubpages.

The reason for this is, you will be linked to a site with thousands of other bloggers who are there for support. You will write an article on Hubpages, and after you publish it, there will usually be at least one other Hub writer who will make a comment on your article. This interaction will train you what works and what does not. Also, if you have a question about blogging in general, you may go to your profile, just like you would on Facebook and ask a status question such as, "I have been on this site for two weeks and my traffic is slow, what can I do to increase my traffic." You will receive many helpful responses within minutes.

Another good reason to have other writing sits is that you can write something on infobarrel and make a link that leads people to your blog. IF you are connected to infobarrel, Zujava, and Hubpages, you can use all three to point to your blog. This will give your blog a lot more credibility with Google and will give you a higher ranking. External backlinks pointing to your blog articles are the key to blog success.

How to win in Horse Racing

When I entered the field of helping others become self made millionaires, I never would have guessed that I would actually write about this subject. But, I see that it is a legitimate way of making a lot of money in a rather short period of time I will have to address it.

Years ago my brother told me that he came up with a system to make money at the track. He lived five minutes away from Del Mar Race Track in California and decided to come up with a system to supplement his income. Naturally, I thought it was foolish and did not think much of it until he began winning, and winning and winning.

I went to the track with him a few times and noticed the tellers putting their heads together when my brother showed up. They whispered, "watch this guy, he wins." I thought it was like a miracle. How could anyone actually consistently win when I had always heard that gambling is a losing game?

If you have intentions of winning money at the track, you really should know the history of every horse, jockey, trainer and owner. Besides all that, you should have a good mathematical mind. It's not easy. But I have heard several "professional" gamblers putting as much studying into their racing forms as law students put into trying to pass the bar.

My brother did not study as intensely as the typical high roller, he just lightly studied the racing form to get a "feel" for the overall picture. He made bets that followed a pattern such as, choosing the second favorite and betting it to show. This was the 'numbers game" he played. He had to often risk a lot of money in order to get a little, similar to what day traders go through. With seeing my brothers success I read some of Mike Goodman's advice that backed up my brothers gambling pattern.

If you are ready to get interested in working the horse racing game, do not ignore the Daily Double.

The Daily Double is an attractive mathematical presentation designed by race tracks to relieve the fan of more money by its sheer munificence. The impressive pay-offs compared to the normal mutual win on one horse is magnetic indeed.

To bet the Daily Double you must be armed for it. So take the following ammunition to wrap up in an old Racing form.

      On October 5, 1960, Shapter Rebel won the first race by a half length at Hollywood Park and paid $3.20. Town Byrd won the second race by a length and paid $10.40. Had you parlayed the two winners you would have won 16.60, but had you played those same two horses in the Daily Double your payoff would have been $38.00. That's why the Daily double is so popular.

Ninety percent of the time the Daily double gives you a better payoff than a straight parlay. That's why any method of play that concentrates on beating the Daily Double is very valuable. For example, the best handicappers among the regulars at Del mar buy a $2 ticket on the favorite in the first race, and with every horse in the second race. If there are ten horses entered in the second it costs them $20. Average payoff is $50. As you know favorites score in a little less than half of all races, so the boys cash in about 1 in every two days using this system. It negates the gambler's lament "Daily Double, Full of Trouble."

Starting from that basis I have several refinements on the above that ease the tension somewhat and also add pennies to the piggy bank.

First, I'd rather play the favorite in the second race because the first race usually consists of un tried horses and the form is poor. That means I play all the horses in the first race to the favorite in the second. If a good long-shot wins in the first race I'm really riding high. But to refine even further. In a first race there are always a few long shots that do not stand a chance of coming in. They are just running for the exercise. You need only look at the form and the odds to know this is true. By skipping them, you have less of an investment and just as good a chance of collecting.

Statistics and form tough are quite deceptive and you must make allowances for that. Many automobile clubs will tell you that there are more pedestrians killed crossing with the green light than on the red light. But they don't tell you that there are hundreds more times people crossing with the lights so your percentage is better crossing with the light.

So, it is with favorites. Sometimes the most heavily bet horse isn't really the favorite. I like the second favorites very often because the overlay is greater-they have overnight odds of 8-5 and end up 3 or 4 to 1. All this because the sheeple bet too much on a favorite because of the jockey, handicappers, or maybe even the color of the horse. When figuring the Daily Double it is always wise to examine the second favorite before plunging on the favorite.

Many of the gamblers who migrate with the stables from track to track look upon Daily doubles as bread and butter money even though the IRS put a cramp in their operations by ruling that "pool" winners of over $600 must give their names and address to officials. With Uncle Sam ready to share in their big winnings but disinterested in their losses, gamblers are reluctant to bet a lot on the Daily double unless they can "spread" their bets among syndicate members.

It is entirely doable. After reading and keeping your mind on the right path towards your money education, you will begin to see your friends make major financial blunders, the kind you used to make, and because they have not read and learned what you have, you will not be able to talk them out of their problems. You will hear them say, "why don't they tax Donald Trump more, so that I won't have to pay so much for gas," and "those people are lucky because they were born rich." You will think to yourself that Donald Trump is rich because he geared his life for it. He studied Real Estate while his friends were having a Keg party, and attacking him will never put sense into the heads of those who can't manage their finances. You will then say, most "rich" people work hard and live a disciplined life, that his how they stay rich, and your friends won't understand or want to understand.

Google Update and Hubpages, Slow Recovery

So, I was moving along well in my quest to making a living online by using Hubpages when all of a sudden a major Google update hit and I lost all of my traffic.

Without trying to explain Penquin and and Panda, and algorithms, which I barely understand, I will just tell you that I started Hubpages with the goal of achieving at least $50 per month as quickly as possible, with the ultimate goal of earning several thousand per month like the successful hubbers are making. I was doing well for a beginner. I cranked out more than 100 articles in three months and was working on writing constantly. Finally, I could breath because I reached payout. Payout is $50. If you don't reach payout by the end of the month it rolls over to the next month and so on.

So, I was on my way because I was earning over $50 and moving up to $60. When the Google update hit my views dropped to less than 1/3 of what they had been. I was starting from scratch.

The experience has been disheartening and frustrating to say the least. For the past six weeks I have been pondering what to do. This is important to me because I don't have a job and don't want one. My goal was to earn enough money passively so that I can concentrate on writing a book. I have spent very little time writing my book because all my free time has been devoted to writing for Hubpages, only to have my progress flattened by the Google update.

I am pleased to say that I discovered Zujava. I have hope for this site because although it is new, and I have heard very little about it, I joined in effort to build backlinks to my Hubpages. My desperate hope was that linking articles from Zujava to Hubpages would boost my Hubpages back to life. I did not expect to see any life out of the Zujava pages themselves.

One of my Hubages articles was about having a disfigured face and having plastic surgery to restore one's appearance. This is the article- Disfigured Face, Facial Surgery, and Starting Over. 

I decided to write an article on the same subject on Zujava and link it to my Hubpages. The Hubpages was lost in Google hell somewhere. I went to the Google search bar and typed keywords in to see if it would come up and when it never did, I searched through all the pages and it was deeper than pages 20, so I gave up.

I went to Zujava and wrote an article called, Plastic Surgery Disasters & Reconstructive Miracles.,
One week after publishing the article on Zujava I went back to Google to see if my Hubpages article was showing up with keywords like, "Disfigured face", and "disfigured model." I still could not find my Hubpage coming up, even though I linked by Zujava article to it, but I found my Zujava article on page two of Google. This tells me that Hubpages lost a lot of their Google juice, and even a new site like, Zujava is doing better with Google than they are. 

I will now continue to write for Zujava and provide updates. Honestly, having a new article show up with Google on page two or three within two weeks is pretty good.

To begin writing for Zujava CLICK HERE. 

I advise you to join quickly because I believe that because its a new site you can easily be the big fish in the little pond. The owners of the site are constantly posting things and helping writers out. Also, they have a system for beginners that does not allow you to publish at will until you have three articles submitted. After they see that you are writing relatively well and you are not a spammer, they let you publish at will. So, to get the awkward beginning over with , I wrote three articles in one day and submitted them. They easily passed the inspection and I am experiencing a new hope at this site.
