What do you do to get reconnected to your center, your purpose, your Why? It’s Friday. Yay! And for all you side hustler’s and day jobbers out there, today is often a big day. Why? Because it’s the last day of the week and we’ve got the weekend, right? But if you’re an entrepreneur, often the weekends don’t mean anything. I follow a lot of entrepreneurs and being one myself, I know that sometimes your work just kind of goes all seven days.
Have you ever watched someone give a presentation and thought that they made it look easy? Believe it or not, they were probably shaking in their knickers a few minutes before they stepped upon the platform. Accept the fact that you may be nervous and move on to the more important things, such as turning an idea into a stellar speech. No pressure … but, giving a presentation before a live audience is a big deal. People are giving you their most valued resource: Their time.
I got a little emotional recording today’s Weekday Wisdom, in which I talk about the importance of kindness and share some rather unkind experiences I’ve had. Today on the way to work, a guy got on the bus who was in a wheelchair and he was totally Mr. Grumpy Pants. He groused at the bus driver. Everything she did was wrong. And at some point during the ride, I noticed him talking to another bus passenger saying, “I’m your problem! I’m your problem!” And I thought, “Wow!
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".
