I’m a staff writer covering all things Wall Street and Investing. I have a love hate relationship with the world of finance.

Emily Bach’s father said her plans to become a lawyer were horrible, and that she should become a financial advisor like him. As a financial advisor himself he was biased, but it turned out he was onto something. Bach gave it a shot and landed an internship at what was then Dean Witter Reynolds. "I had fabulous manager who showed me all the different aspects of the industry. And by end I said, 'This is for me'", Bach recalls.
The very trait that often makes entrepreneurs successful is the cause of a big money mistake they tend to make. “The biggest mistake we see entrepreneurs making is thinking they can do it all themselves,” says Gouraige, 58. Gouraige, a Haitian immigrant who graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard Law School, manages some $1.6 billion for wealthy clients from his UBS office in Coral Gables, Florda.
Mike Poppo had his choice of jobs upon completing his PaineWebber internship some thirty years ago, but he ended up taking one of the lower-paying options. He chose to work as a stockbroker rather than a higher paying role in institutional sales or investment research. Not only was it a lower paying job but the pay check was only guaranteed for a few months. “I figured I could build my own business and talk to clients. I thought I was cut out for it,” says Poppo, 53. Turns out he was.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
