It’s a good habit to build into your life. Not all of us know what our motivations are. We don’t know the things we would do for free. We struggle to find a reason to work hard. If we don’t know our motivations we often look for things that inspire us. These usually come from the outside. And it’s possible for those things to help us in the short-term. And it’s possible that inspiration will lead to the discovery of our motivations. But it may surprise you the way they find inspiration.
My wife and I recently moved. We love our new place. We’re renting and we like renting. It’s a little more expensive on the surface than a mortgage, but we’re still looking for that flexibility to not be tied down just yet to a permanent home. But we are starting to look at places to buy. We’re using what seems like every app out there in real estate. My wife is especially looking at homes for sale in our area and in areas that we like.
One of the benefits of starting a business is getting to do more of the things you love. Now, I love running a business, but it’s not the only thing I love doing. I enjoy golfing and I enjoying hunting and spending time with friends and family. There are a few times in my life when I looked at the people that really seemed to be happy. I paid attention to how they lived their lives and I’ve even asked them a few times about their approach to life and why they might be so happy.
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".
