Do you ever have one of those days when you wonder: Why am I even bothering? Sometimes work and life can be overwhelming.What if I told you there was a simple mental technique to improve your attitude and your performance?I call it framing. It can help you at work and home. I first realized the power of framing when my children were small. I was up late one night, feeding a new baby. I had a movie on in the background that was about President Richard Nixon.
If you’re an entrepreneur, odds are, you’re tired.People often become entrepreneurs because they want more freedom.Yet in the quest to make money, many entrepreneurs work longer hours and treat themselves worse than any boss would. As both the doer and the supervisor, the entrepreneur gets two jobs, labor and management. Dorie Clark, author of "Entrepreneurial You," says, “The first challenge is how do you become successful as an entrepreneur.
Have you ever tried to eat a live scorpion? If so, you’re a more adventuresome eater than I am. But if we’re going to eat a live scorpion, I would get some training from a meerkat before I took my first bite. Adult meerkats teach their young pups how to dismantle a live venomous scorpion and then eat it. They do it, using tiered coaching. It’s a great model for sales leaders. Here’s why: When sales leaders coach their salespeople the end game is usually to increase the win rate and the deal size.
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".
