Be Prepared

It is a known fact that the first date is the most important. The first date can determine the outcome of all the others after. The first date is an excellent opportunity to show your date what you are made of and how different you are to the others. Don’t forget the main objective of a date is to show your date why you are a better choice to go out with in the future than someone else. Trust me first impressions count for a lot. On a first date personal hygiene and grooming is a must! In anticipation of any date, try going for a hair cut, investing in a new outfit, checking that your teeth and nails are presentable!

Be Confident

A first date is always a nerve racking event, but there’s nothing more attractive than a bit of self-confidence.  When it comes to conversation, stay in your comfort zone by coming up with a few topics that you can talk about easily so you’re not out of your depth too early. But it’s a delicate balance. No one wants to be the guy who brags on about his comic book collection all night, or what a pro he is on the bench press. That’s a big no. If in doubt, ask your date about themselves and go from there. That’s always the safe way to go.


Manners Maketh Man & Woman

One very important tip when on a date is, NEVER FORGET YOUR MANNERS! A little etiquette goes a long way. If she looks nice, tell her that! Maybe open the door as she walks through, or offer your arm as she steps down from the curb – but play it cool and don’t go too overboard! Also try remember their most prominent feature. Trust me its useful! Not to forget to say please and thank you at opportune moments. When you’re comfortable, maybe test the waters by leaning in a little closer as she speaks – if she backs away, well, it’s probably not going well.


Keep It Casual

First dates, don’t have to be a burden, or stress. Always remember to try and keep it casual, or keep it real. Not sure about your date? Try taking the person somewhere you are comfortable. it’s pretty obvious, your agenda, if you’ve chosen somewhere that’s just around the corner from your pad. Try for somewhere that’s convenient for both of you to get to. One of your favorite bars is a good choice. Drinks are fine for a first date, just don’t over do it. 
It’s perfectly ok to keep first or second dates to weeknights, but anything after the third outing together should be for the weekend. Otherwise, they’re going to wonder what you’re doing that’s so much more interesting than them. Or, worse, who.


Don’t Be Affraid To Ask For Advice

If you’re a little clueless or just want to make sure you’re on the right track, don’t be afraid to ask your friends for a few pointers. See what they think of the outfit you’re planning to wear, or the venue you want to take your date to. Getting advice is not a bad thing. Everyone needs help sometimes. That could save you being turned down, or things not going according to plan.

Eyes On Your Date

Remember, when you’re on a date with someone, they should the centre of attention. Ask them about themselves and pay attention to their answers. And don’t try to get a sneaky look at your watch or phone – and that blonde sitting at the bar who you just checked out? Yep, they saw that, too.


Offer To Pay

If it’s a first date, it won’t do you any harm to pay – or at least offer. Arguing about who should pick up the bill is not a good look and it’s hardly going to give the best first impression. Then again, it’s perfectly fine to level the score a bit if you end up seeing each other regularly.

As I Look Outside My Window

As I look outside my window,

Can’t help but feel safe.

As I look outside my window,

Can’t help but

feel great,

As I look outside my window,

I imagine things at no cost!

As I look outside my window!

Can’t help but feel lost,

As I look outside my window,

I see everything is not as I thought,

As I look outside my window,

I feel a call to rise,

As I look




I feel to rise and be

the best that I can be, you see!

As I look outside my window,

I know there are

greater things

for me to


As i look outside my window,

Can’t help but reminisce on

my life’s achievements,

with glee.

As I look outside my window,

I feel a longing to be greater,

to work harder!

As I look outside my window,

I often wonder

what’s out there for me?





Must be!

As I look outside my window,

I feel at ease!

For I know I can do as I please!

I can do all things through christ who strengthens me!

For once I’m truly pleased!

As I look outside my window,

I am acknowledged by the nodding of the trees!

As I look outside my window,

I remember all that was


As I look outside my window,

I fear not,

As I look outside my window,

The future is always a first thought!

As I look outside my window,

I dream about not

being stopped!

As I look outside my window,

money is always my final though!

Don’t get lost!

How To Become A Billionaire


googleplus 13pinterest 21facebook 7twitter 16                    shop-online-button-300x279  Contact-me-button-3  HomeButton


 Becoming a billionaire takes a lot more than just wishing and wanting and adding a couple zeros at the end of your pay cheque. It involves tremendous hours of hard work, investing wisely, creating opportunities for yourself and saving. Adhering to these tips will ensure your rise from nothing to something!  That is not all it takes though. For more instructions see step 1.

ArtsZone Study Banner

Study Up. People do not become billionaires by accident. It is advised that you take a course online or at a University in finance, entrepreneurship and business management. Start reading books on investing, and know the rules. Studying finance, entrepreneurship or business management will allow you to better identify  marketing and consumer needs. This in turn will help you develop business models based on those needs.
Read about successful billionaires and how they made their fortunes, such as Warren Buffett or Jon Huntsman, Sr. Being wise with your money is the surest way to amass more of it.


Start Saving Money. It takes money to make money. Its always advisable to take a certain amount of money out of your paycheck and put it into a savings account! This money can now be used in future investments or just to collect interest, its up to you. Start by deciding what percentage you can afford to spare, it doesn’t have to be to much, a simple $20 in the beginning can go a long way in the next 4-5 years.

bank tellers

Start an Individual Retirement Account.  IRAs are customizable financial plans that you can set up to start saving for the future. IRSs are usually available from most financial institutions. If you want to end up saving an amount of money that ends with nine zeroes, you need to do this as soon as possible. You’ll accumulate interest on your savings and elect to take an amount of risk in investments to make money off the money you have. Depending on the financial institution, you may or may not need to invest a minimum amount of money to get it started. Research your options and talk to your financial advisor.

future plan

Make a five- year plan.  Keep your plan urgent. You need to calculate an estimate of how much you intend to save in the next five to ten years.  Once that is done, you need to now decide what is the best way to use your money. Note well, I did not say spend your money, I simply said use your money. Whether you use it to start a business, invest or just collect interest it’s up to you, but you need to start a five year plan for that money, or else it will diminish, and you won’t even know!


 Pay off any credit card debtsStudent loans and credit card debt needs to be paid off as soon as possible! It is the most difficult thing to get ahead and you have debts hanging over your head.

real estate

Buy Real Estate. An excellent way to make more money is to invest in real estate! Property will generally appreciate in value over time, and might give you a good return on your investment. Be wary of investing in an artificially inflated market, and make sure that you can easily pay the monthly mortgage. If you don’t know much about the 2008 sub prime mortgage crisis in the United States, it might be a good idea to read up on it and learn from a few cautionary tales.


 Invest in a business. Create or choose a company that offers a product or service that you would buy yourself, and put your time and money toward improving it. This is a great and sure way of making money over a lengthy period of time. Become knowledgeable about the industry you wish to go into and learn to differentiate between good and bad business investments.


 Buy and sell stock. The stock market can be a great place to grow your fortune. Watch the markets carefully before you start to buy and pay attention to which stocks do well; this will assist you in making smart purchases in the future.


 Put your money into Money Market Accounts (MMAs). These accounts have a higher minimum account than a regular savings account, but accrues twice the rate of interest of a savings account. High-yield MMAs are somewhat risky–your ability to draw on the money and your ability to affect its investments are limited–but it’s a good way to let your money grow by doing, essentially, nothing.
investments_bannerDiversify your investments and portfolio. Don’t keep all your money in one place. By diversifying your portfolio and investing in stocks, real estate, mutual funds, bonds, and other investments recommended by your brokers, you’re both ensuring that your money will be isolated in different markets that behave differently.


Know when to get out. At a certain point, you’re going to have to know when to pull the trigger and get out of something before it collapses from under you. If you’ve surrounded yourself with smart brokers, listen to their advice, but also know when to listen to your gut. If you see an opportunity to sell big and make a profit, do it. Profit is profit. Even if that stock ends up appreciating in the next year, you’ve still made some coins that you can reinvest elsewhere. There’s no one way to invest.

great decissions

Make smart financial decisions. The Internet is full of penny stock schemes and get-rich-quick hokum that preys upon the ignorant and forces gullible people into making bad financial decisions. Do the research and commit to a lifetime of investing and making money. There’s no such thing as an overnight billionaire.

rich guy

Act the part. If you’re going to be a billionaire, you’ve got to act like one. Surround yourself with moneyed and cultured people, picking up advice and know-how from the experienced.

Here are 18 things you probably didn’t know about the World Cup.


  • People drank more than 2 million beers in 2010
    More than 224,546gal of beer (juuust over 2,395,157 12oz bottles) and 390,600 hot dogs were sold in World Cup stadiums in 2010. That’s slightly fewer than the grizzly bear ate when it defeated Kobayashi.

world cup draw fixtures

  • Fifa World Cup Draw 2014
     The official draw card has been released, and I got it right here! 32 teams, 8 groups all battling for the trophy! Who do you think will win?


  • The worst game ever ended 31-0
    The biggest score line in the history of World Cup qualifiers, and in the history of international soccer, was recorded on April 11, 2001, when Australia destroyed American Samoa 31-0. The Australian Archie Thompson scored 13 goals that day, the world record for goals in a single international match.


  • 2014’s host also owns the most World Cup victories
    The tournament has been played every four years since the inaugural tournament in 1930, except in 1942 and 1946, when it wasn’t held because of the World War II. Only eight teams have won the tournament, with Brazil winning five; Italy claiming four; Germany three; Argentina and Uruguay two; and England, France, and Spain each winning one title apiece.


  • More people watch the World Cup than the Super Bowl
    Around 715.1 million people watched the final match of the 2006 FIFA World Cup. As a reference point, Super Bowl XLVIII had 167 million total worldwide viewers. Take your Super Bowl party and multiply it by 3.5. That’s how big a deal the World Cup is.
    Switzerland 1954 was the first World Cup to be televised. Sixteen years later, at Mexico 1970, the World Cup was televised across the globe and instant replays were introduced.
    South Africa 2010 was shown in every single country and territory on Earth, including Antarctica and the Arctic Circle, reached more than 3.2 billion in-home people – 46.4% of the world’s population — and that’s not even counting the folks at bars, restaurants, and online.


  • One guy played one minute, but can still call himself a champion
    Argentine Marcelo Trobbiani set the record for the shortest World Cup career of all time when he made his first (and last) appearance in the 89th minute of the 1986 final…which Argentina ended up winning.


  • One living legend never played a minute at the World Cup
    Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs never played in the FIFA World Cup, despite a 24-year pro career that included 13 league titles and two UEFA Champions League victories. But he does have pretty terrific stubble, and apparently enjoys shagging his brother’s wife.


  • The single tournament scoring record is 13 goals
    The Moroccan-born Just Fontaine scored the most-ever goals in a World Cup when he put 13 bulges in the back of the ol’ onion bag in six games for France in 1958.  Also, his name is Just Fontaine, and that’s incredible in itself!

FIFA Executive Committee Meeting

  • There have been two World Cup trophies.
    The Coupe Jules Rimet, which was used from 1930 to 1970, and, now, the simply named FIFA World Cup Trophy. The current version weighs just under 14lbs, of which 11 pounds is pure 18-karat gold. Let’s hope nobody treats any of them like OJ’s Heisman.


  • Coaches range in age from 27 to 71
    At 71 years young, Otto Rehhagel became the oldest man to coach at the World Cup when he led Greece at South Africa 2010. The youngest coach was Argentina’s Juan Jose Tramutola, who was 27 years old when he managed the team in 1930.


  • 2006 saw the most red cards ever
Yellow and red cards were introduced at Mexico 1970, but no one was sent off until 1974 when Chile’s Carlos Caszely picked up the first red card in World Cup history in the 67th minute against West Germany. Plácido Galindo was the first player ever sent off in the World Cup in 1930, but the refs didn’t have their magic trump cards back then.
The record for red cards in one tournament is 28, set in 2006, with the the most famous being this one that led to a billion meme gifs. There were also 345 yellow cards that year, an average of 5.39 per match.

world cup mascot

  • The World Cup mascot is named “Fuleco” and he has his own website.
He is a Brazilian three-banded armadillo, and will be 14 years old at the time of the World Cup. It goes to show: People put way too much thought into fake animals that everyone ignores once every four years.
Fuleco’s blue shell represents Brazil’s fertility, landscape, the skies, and the water. He has said (how does a fake armadillo talk?) he enjoys “watching the latest animated films” and playing “video games on my computer whenever I can. I also like to draw and read cartoon and comic books.”

pele trophy

  • Pelé is the youngest scorer ever
    At 42 years old, Roger Milla became the oldest player in World Cup history when he laced up his boots for Cameroon in 1994. He also scored in that tournament, and holds the record for the oldest player to ever score in a cup.Pelé became the youngest (of course he did) when he scored against Wales at Sweden 1958, when at 17 years and 239 days old.


  • Bosnia-Herzegovina is the 77th country to participate
    A total of 76 teams have participated in the World Cup since the first edition in 1930. This tally includes nations that either no longer exist or have undergone a transformation, such as Yugoslavia, the Soviet Union, and Czechoslovakia. Bosnia-Herzegovina will be the 77th side added to the list in 2014.



  • The U.S. actually had the best attendance ever
The highest total and average attendance was in 1994 USA. Suck on that, soccer haters. A total of 3,587,538 fans came out, averaging almost 69,000 soccer nuts per game. The final between Brazil and Italy at the Rose Bowl drew 94,164 people.
More than 34 million fans have attended the 772 World Cup matches played since 1930, averaging out to about 44,000 per game. Sure beats the 200 people the Miami Marlins draw on a nightly basis.


  • England’s actually not that good
    1966 — the first, last, and only time England won a World Cup.

soccer stadium

  • Put two people in every seat at MetLife Stadium, and it’s still smaller than the World Cup attendance record
    The record for single-game attendance was set in 1950, when a crowd of 173,850 packed into the Maracana in Brazil. The new Maracana, although Brazil’s biggest stadium, only has a capacity of 73,531. To put it in perspective: Yankee Stadium only seats 50,291, while MetLife Stadium seats 82,566.
