- Arnold Schwarzenegger's Secret WeaponArnold Schwarzenegger, the movie star-turned-California governor, has been interested in business since long before he was Conan or the Terminator.

The modern multihyphenate -- think LeBron, Drake, Billie Eilish -- are following a template the pair established in the 1980s, as Schwarzenegger successfully expanded his popularity and wealth through savvy dealmaking.
