Entrepreneurship certainly isn't for the faint of heart. To prove it, here's an alarming statistic from Inc.: 96 percent of businesses fail within 10 years. Of those that survive, a shockingly low percentage have revenues of $1 million per year. With odds like that, it's no wonder many successful entrepreneurs wish they could travel back in time to give themselves advice before they launched their first startups.
2017 was a pretty great year for the artists spotlighted on last year’s Artists To Watch list. Carly Pearce inked a record deal and scored her first number-one hit. Brett Young and Luke Combs found themselves on top of country radio charts two times each, and almost every other artist had their best years ever, including award nominations, headlining tours, and critically-acclaimed albums. The ten newcomers below are on track for breakout years in 2018.
When I moved from Manhattan's Upper East Side to Franklin, Tennessee, several of my New York friends asked, "But aren't you going to miss the culture?!" While it's true that New York City has cultural gems around every corner, it certainly doesn't have a monopoly on interesting things to see and do. For example, Franklin is brimming with historical importance and exciting things to do year-round — just like countless other great communities around the country.
I often hear friends say they aren't sure how to talk to their kids about things @realDonaldTrump says, so I made a crossword puzzle with some of his most notable quotes to help start the conversation. I hope families on both sides enjoy it. #FakeNewshttps://t.co/Yaaee27d0D
Imagine all of your favorite musicians got together to form a supergroup and only played hits. That's basically @Mixmax, but for your inbox instead of your stereo. Life-changing. I'm addicted. https://t.co/OtXm35f1gy
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".
