New Book “All in Startup” Proposes a Scientific Method of Entrepreneurship That Serves Entrepreneurs Better Than an MBA Degree














All In Startup Cover


Hoboken, NJ (PRWEB) July 01, 2014

Are champions born or are they made? The interesting dynamics of today’s startup landscape definitely brings about this question. News stories are flooded with tales of successful entrepreneurs who’ve never had to look back; others who stumble and learn from their mistakes. There are still others who never get that second chance and are forced to give up completely. Diana Kander, a successful entrepreneur and a Senior Fellow at the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation who has founded and sold a number of ventures, proposes there is a “scientific method” of entrepreneurship for startup success.

As a sought-after public speaker, consultant and writer, Diana uses her creativity and presents All in Startup: Launching a New Idea When Everything is on the Line (WILEY; July 2014; Hardcover & e-book; ISBN 978-1-118-85766-3; $ 27.95) as a fable that follows the life of Owen Chase who is tasked with turning his company around in nine days. Through pure happenstance, Owen finds himself pondering this problem while advancing steadily as a contestant at the World Series of Poker. His Las Vegas path quickly introduces him to Samantha, a beautiful and mysterious mentor with a revolutionary approach to entrepreneurship. Sam is a fountain of knowledge that may save his company, but her sexual advances might prove too much for Owen’s struggling marriage.

All in Startup aims to showcase a new type of entrepreneurship, revealing innovative business principles and the emotional reality of entrepreneurship that goes tragically unmentioned during business school. Through the characters of Owen and Sam, All in Startup focuses on:

    The counter-intuitive ways in which successful entrepreneurs think differently than wannabe-entrepreneurs.
    Help entrepreneurs figure out if they are ready to quit their job and invest their life savings to go “All In” on their big idea.
    How to significantly reduce the risks involved in launching a new idea.

“You will likely get only one opportunity in your life to go “all in” on an idea: to quit your job, talk your spouse into letting you drain the savings account, and follow your dream,” says Kander. “All In Startup will prepare readers for that ‘all in’ moment and make sure that you push your chips into the middle only when the odds are in your favor and hold the keys to significantly de-risking your idea so that your success appears almost lucky.”

All In Startup is more than just a novel about eschewing temptation and fighting to save a company. It is a lifeline for entrepreneurs who are thinking about launching a new idea or for those who have already started but can’t seem to generate the traction they were expecting.

Chippendales® is Pumping Up To Celebrate 35 Years as The #1 Male Revue in the World with a Celebration Featuring Performers From The Last Three Decades
















Chippendales 35th Anniversary Logo

Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 17, 2014

1979 was the year that introduced the world to the Sony Walkman, Donna Summer’s “Last Dance” won the Oscar for Best Song, “The Dukes of Hazard” and “Dallas” dominated the small screen and Bo Derek made her famous jog on the beach in the film “10”. It was also the year that the Chippendales began gyrating their way into the hearts and laps of women everywhere. By putting a new twist on an old profession, the striptease, the Men of Chippendales, one of the most exclusive fraternities in the world, became the first all-male dance troupe for women.

On September 20, 2014, the iconic brand will celebrate its 35 years of ‘making women happy’ with an invite only event that will reunite more than three decades of Chippendales performers (from 1979 – 2014) at the show’s flagship location, the Chippendales Theatre inside the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. In addition, the evening kicks off a year-long celebration of events and projects that will include performances in Europe, Asia, and Australia; as well as a 35-city USA tour (including New York, Chicago, Dallas and San Diego among others) in partnership with LiveNation; and the beginning of production of a Las Vegas based reality show and Alan Ball’s highly anticipated film, “I Am Chippendales,” the true-life, and often scandalous story of how the brand became one of the most famous adult entertainment shows in the world.

Named after the Chippendales-style classic furniture that adorned the original club in Los Angeles, the brand quickly became a pop-culture phenomenon in the late ‘70s and early ‘80s. The success of the Los Angeles club spawned a New York club as well as other permanent locations and touring troupes that traveled the world, producing shows across Europe, the UK, Australia and Asia. Over the last 35 years of Chippendales, the men have performed for more than 100 million women in over 100 countries, have traveled more thank 6.7 million miles while touring, have torn away over 1.2 million tank tops, worn 56,000 bowties and cuffs and have been photographed more than 70 million times. The famous Chippendales calendar became the first all-male calendar targeted to women and has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and has been printed in over nine languages.

The Chippendales perform nightly in Las Vegas at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino. For a list of touring cities, please visit http://www.Chippendales.com. You can follow the Chippendales on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @Chippendales #Chippendales.

The Chippendales have been featured on numerous national television shows, including the Emmy Award-winning CBS series, The Amazing Race, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

‘Beverly Hills Pawn’ Returns to REELZ With New Episodes













Albuquerque, New Mexico (PRWEB) November 24, 2014

REELZ today announced that new episodes of the network’s hit reality series “Beverly Hills Pawn” return Saturday, January 17 with two new episodes back-to-back starting at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT. The workplace docuseries explores Yossi Dina’s extraordinary pawn shop in the heart of world famous Beverly Hills where Hollywood’s elite go to find a lot of cash…fast. The master businessman and former army captain runs his luxury shop with an iron fist and is known for his savvy negotiating and his superior taste when making million dollar pawn deals at a moment’s notice. In new episodes Yossi and his loyal team of Dominique, Aria and Cory are back with once-in-a-lifetime deals involving extremely rare items including a powerful piece of Israeli military history and one of their biggest items yet—a Beechcraft Bonanza airplane. The team also negotiates for a ball autographed by Joe DiMaggio, Lou Gehrig and the rest of the 1937 New York Yankees team, a dress worn on-screen by Elizabeth Taylor and an iconic prop inspired by the cult movie “This Is Spinal Tap.” New episodes of “Beverly Hills Pawn” will air Saturdays at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT.

“Beverly Hills Pawn” – “Flight of the Pawn Broker” premieres Saturday, January 17 at 9pm ET/ 6pm PT. In this episode Yossi and Dominique have a special opportunity to acquire an extremely rare piece of Israeli military history… a flag used during the daring Entebbe hostage-rescue mission in 1976 when an Israeli commando squad rescued 103 Jewish hostages from Palestinian and German terrorist groups. Later, Yossi and Aria try to sell an Elvis-loving customer a gold and diamond necklace worn by The King himself. In the episode’s final deal, Yossi and Cory look to sell a classic Beechcraft Bonanza airplane that was featured on the cover of “Plane & Pilot.”

“Beverly Hills Pawn”– “Ball Players, Hard Rockers & Dame Taylor” premieres Saturday, January 17 at 9:30pm ET/ 6:30pm PT. A customer pays a visit to sell Yossi and Dominique a softball that his father instructed Ronald Reagan, a sportscaster at the time, to have signed by the entire 1937 World Series-winning New York Yankees team. Next, Yossi and Cory meet a first-time customer who wants to buy a dress worn by Elizabeth Taylor in “Poker Alice”– but Yossi is so attached to the piece he may not want to sell. Then, Yossi and Aria have a chance to buy and sell an iconic prop inspired by the cult film “This Is Spinal Tap”… but will this deal end on a sour note?

In new episodes of “Beverly Hills Pawn” starting Saturday, January 17 viewers will see Yossi, Cory, Aria and Dominique putting dollars at stake for incredible collectibles including the golden snitch from the “Harry Potter” franchise, Marilyn Monroe’s dress from “The Prince and the Showgirl”, a rare vintage car—a 1965 Alfa Romeo and the blueprints of the Starship Enterprise from the classic TV series “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” “Beverly Hills Pawn” is produced by Asylum Entertainment.

PROGRAMMING ALERT – “Beverly Hills Pawn” marathons:

Before you enjoy the new episodes, celebrate the holidays with Yossi and the pawn girls during REELZ’s Christmas Eve marathon on Wednesday, December 24 featuring 14 episodes of “Beverly Hills Pawn” back-to-back starting at 12pm ET/ 9am PT. Then, bring in the New Year with the pawn team when a 16 episode marathon airs on Thursday, January 1, 2015 starting at 12pm ET/ 9am PT.

Refund Management Services Congratulates World Series of Poker Main Event Champion











Refund Management Services Congratulates World Series of Poker Main Event Champion


Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) November 27, 2014

Refund Management Services (http://www.RefundManagement.com), the number one choice for Canada’s biggest winners for U.S. gaming and casino tax refunds, is issuing its congratulations to the World Series of Poker (WSOP) Main Event champion and weighing in on international gaming tax exemption laws. The WSOP is held annually in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“The winner of the prestigious WSOP Main Event is considered by many to be the world champion of poker,” says Brooke Sacks, vice president of marketing & business development at Refund Management Services. “This year, Martin Jacobson of Sweden won the $ 10.0-million first prize. But because of different international tax exemption laws, the amount of money the winner or any runner-up can take home will differ significantly from the original prize amount.” (Source: Kirschen, R., and Dalla, N., “Martin Jacobson Wins 2014 WSOP Main Event Championship and $ 10 million,” November 12, 2014; http://www.wsop.com/news/2014/Nov/5127/MARTIN-JACOBSON-WINS-2014-WSOP-MAIN-EVENT-CHAMPIONSHIP-AND-10-MILLION.html.)

Sacks explains that the gambling income won by non-residents while playing in the United States varies wildly depending on their country of origin. Because of tax treaties negotiated between the U.S. and a small number of countries, gambling income is not taxable by the IRS. One of those countries is Sweden. As a result, WSOP champion Martin Jacobson gets to walk away with his $ 10.0-million winnings intact.

Most countries have a tax treaty with the U.S. whereby their gaming winnings are subject to a 30% withholding tax, says Sacks. At this year’s WSOP tournament, Chanracy Khun of Laval, Quebec came in 69th place and won $ 103,025. But because of the 30% withholding tax imposed by the IRS, Khun actually took home just $ 72,119. Back in 2010, Jonathan Duhamel from Boucherville, Quebec was crowned the champion of the WSOP Main Event, winning $ 8.9 million. He had $ 2.67 million taken off his winnings as a result of the 30% withholding tax. (Source: WSOP.com, “Event #65: No-Limit Hold’em Main Event; Results,” http://www.wsop.com/tournaments/results.asp?rr=5&grid=1052&tid=13665&dayof=, last accessed November 21, 2014.)

“Gambling is a $ 40.0-billion-a-year industry in the United States. It generates more revenue than movies, recorded music, cruise ships, spectator sports, and theme parks combined. And the U.S. government wants its share,” Sacks adds.

While there is a way for Canadians or any non-U.S. resident to get some or all of the 30% withholding tax back, it unfortunately means having to deal with the IRS. For the most part, IRS tax refund regulations and forms are both difficult and confusing, says Sacks.

“Refund Management Services has successfully completed the most U.S. gambling tax refunds for Canadians and other non-U.S. residents since 1998,” Sacks concludes. “We have a CA designation and are certified agents of the IRS for filing W-7 applications. On top of that, Refund Management Services has never been refused an eligible refund and can get gambling winnings refunded in as little as six to nine weeks depending on when you’ve won.”

Importance of Maintaining Focus in Blackjack

There are many psychological articles related with the game of Blackjack and deals with the basic as well as advance strategies which can allow a player to avoid tilt or negative variance.  The importance of these strategies allows a player to play more effective game and thus creating more interest in the game.  In our previous articles we have dealt with the strategies which can allow players to play longer session of Blackjack but today we will discuss the importance of maintaining focus during the game of black jack and keeping the negative variance away.

Though it may seem quite difficult to remain focused on the game itself in the entire session, without any impact from whether you are playing online Blackjack or in a physical casino, but it is not so.  The first thing which you should concentrate on is the fact that in no way you should force yourself to stay focused for the game.  If you can self realize when your level of concentration is faltering then you will be able to stop the game for some time and then resume the game when you feel quite comfortable.  This type of intermission varies from players to players while some can resume the game after some minutes, other can take time of up to a week to feel in the comfort zone.

The next thing which should be observed by the players playing Blackjack online is that they should keep all the distractions which are quite common in a household away.  These distractions can be limited by switching off the TV, shutting the web browser, and by switching off the mobile.  Keep in mind that you are playing the game of online Blackjack to make money and these distractions can disturb you to maintain focus in the game.
