An Interview with Marlene Bernstein of Savour this Kitchen
It all started with a trip to a cookie shop. In this video, Kristen Tomlan tells Entrepreneur Network partner Jen Hacker how she and her friends decided they didn't actually want the cookies -- they just wanted the dough. Tomlan realized then and there that there was a hole in the market, and she started telling her friends that she wanted to open up a cookie dough store. After a while, her friends would ask her about the business, but she hadn't gotten it started.
When Amanda Zuckerman first started looking for things she could use to decorate her freshman-year dorm room, she found it more than a little difficult. There simply weren't a lot of good options for bedding on an extra tall twin bed, which comes standard in many dorm rooms, and Amanda and her mother, Karen Zuckerman, found themselves frustrated by the options for other decorating ideas, too.
Want to come up with a great business idea? Figure out what you need in your own life. Melissa Mash noticed that her friends had difficulty finding a bag that could handle a diverse lifestyle. For example, a bag that looked professional often couldn't carry workout clothes, and a workout bag simply didn't fit into formal settings. As a result, Mash and her friends often took to carrying around two bags, which seemed unnecessary and annoying.

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".
