How do you become the richest self-made woman in American real estate? For Dorothy Herman, the path to success includes surviving childhood trauma and raising a daughter as a teenager. Nicknamed Dottie, she joins Forbes' second annual richest self-made women list this year with an estimated $270 million net worth. It's all thanks to the real estate brokerage empire she started building in the 1990s, first with Prudential Long Island Realty and later with storied brokerage house Douglas Elliman.
This story appears in the December 12, 2017 issue of Forbes. SubscribeA lot has changed in corporate America since 1976, when Whitney MacMillan took over Cargill, his family's midwestern grain-trading giant. According to MacMillan, common sense and decency have died off — two elements on which the billionaire prided himself while running Cargill until 1995. "The history of virtue in the grain trade goes back a long way, where your word is your bond," says MacMillan, 88, in a rare loquacious moment.
Culinary trends can be as fickle and fast-changing as any other fad -- just ask any owner of a now-shuttered frozen yogurt store, or the former employees of once-popular cupcake shops. But for the members of the 30 Under 30 class of 2018 in food and drink, shaping America's meals is less about zeroing in on what's next and more about balancing what consumers say they want with strong business fundamentals and products that will withstand the test of whims.
@RMac18 Can I also just add here that young journalists have it hard enough as it is - subjects can immediately write you off as young, naieve, not understanding etc if you make a mistake - and this email just makes it worse out there for everyone who has to deal with the stereotypes.
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".
