In 1989, Daymond John and some friends spent $40 and some elbow grease making hats in the home he shared with his mother. They sold out. Pretty soon, half of the house was a factory, and Mr. John and his friends had a feeding frenzy on their hands. Building on their success, they branched out into other products.
Gen. David Petraeus is a retired four-star general and former director of the CIA. He is currently chairman of the KKR Global Institute. A great boss provides inspiration, encouragement, counsel, direction, example, energy, and all the other elements needed to help you ‘be all that you can be.’ A bad boss does the opposite. I have had many extraordinary bosses, but if I had to choose one, I’d have to select General John (Jack) R. Galvin.
When they married two years ago, this couple was making close to $100,000 in Minneapolis. But they felt like they were treading water. So, Morgan Roddy, 37, and Cheri Ellefson, 34, moved to Muncie, Ind., where they can live off Ms. Ellefson’s salary while Ms. Roddy focuses on their new small business, Queer Chocolatier. The company sells chocolate truffles on their website, at farmers markets and in a retail storefront above a coffee shop downtown. They pay $250 a month for 250 square feet....
In the latest installment of Best Bet/Worst Bet, @ABCSharkTank's Daymond John tells me he invests in people who are doing what they do best and can benefit from him doing what he does best.
Jean-Claude Van Damme tells me YouTube is his spy: "I’m always on YouTube looking at lots of subjects so I know what’s going on around the world. Nobody can fool me. Since YouTube started it is, in a sense, my spy."
Jean-Claude Van Damme tells me why he travels with leather slippers: "Because lots of hotels have carpet. I prefer to walk on wood or cement floors. But carpet is full of disease. I cannot walk on it. I don’t know why, it’s something strange in my head."
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".
