After graduating from Texas A&M with a bachelor of science in Journalism, she worked for Dell for 15 years, navigating her way up the ladder into its highest sales position – Global Account Manager – a far cry from the initial job she took after college, answering the tech giant’s 1-800 numbe...
In 1999, I moved to Atlanta, Georgia to do outside sales for Dell. I was replacing a seasoned sales executive on a large account with great potential. Early on in my training in 2000, he took me to the 191 Club in downtown Atlanta. The walls were dark wood, I was the only female in the club that day, and there was an elderly African American gentleman shining shoes. It felt like the Confederacy was still alive and well. It was unappealing, dark, and depressing.
I've personally watched coworking grow from a few spaces (less than 100) to what I'm guessing is about 15,000 spaces around the world. There is coworking in every corner from Mongolia to Vietnam to Ecuador. Coworking is not just an open space for working; Coworking is a movement. Its about working in a community and it's on fire. Try to find a business center that doesn't identify as Coworking - in fact Regus claims they invented it (they did not).
You hear Global Coworking Unconference Conference (GCUC) and you are immediately intrigued and confused...Is it for you? Here are some groups that should be attending GCUC in NYC this May that might just surprise you...1. You are a developer investigating the Coworking Industry. We know you saw Wework's valuation and you want in.It looks pretty simple, right? Just make a really pretty space and wait for the hipsters to show up. It's not that easy.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
