Arnold got into body building when it was still a relatively obscure sport. Hence, when he won championships successively and later started promoting bodybuilding as a sport, he was able to become the face of bodybuilding. As bodybuilding grew in popularity, Arnold's image and personal brand grew with it.
Unlike many celebrities who ran into financial difficulties, Arnold has always done very well financially. A close look at his career shows this is not due to one or two lucky deals, but is due to a sense and eagerness to do business. When he was working out at Gold's Gym, he sought opportunities to work for and learn how to do business under Joe Weider. As his fame grew through successive bodybuilding contest championships, Arnold wrote a popular series of books on bodybuilding and ran a mail order business selling instructional tapes and equipment. He even started a bricklaying business and later invested in real estate (which performed quite well in inflationary 1970s). A sharp nose for finding business opportunities in all corners is an important factor in Arnold's persistent business success.

Arnold Alois Schwarzenegger's Quotes
|“||In sports, you learn competition means go after it, win it. And not to let anything else interfere. I consider myself an expert in looking into a particular idea or goal and then going after it without anything else in mind... It is always the same kind of thing. You pick a goal, and then you just go after it, accomplish it, and get satisfaction out of that.||”|
|“||For me life is continuously being hungry. The meaning of life is not simply to exist, to survive, but to move ahead, to go up, to achieve, to conquer.||”|
|“||No matter what you do in life, selling is part of it.||”|
Reg Park, Joe Weider
