Never doubt your greatness. It’s inside each and everyone of us. But too many times we shy away from the amazing creatures we are because for some reason we start to believe we are not enough. So untrue and so unnecessary. You need only look around at those doing amazing things each and every day, those you observe who are no smarter or more talented than you are. They simply made a singular choice to believe in themselves and their infinite possibilities.
If you want it, there it is, go and get it. It’s all right there in front of you, in business, as in the rest of your life. After all, business is such a big part of this life you might as well make it the best it can be. Just never forget to make your business plan fit your life plan, not the other way around, or you’ll miss out on some of the best life has to offer. Do it right and you win, everyone wins. This becomes your story. I am Mark Brodinsky and this is Storytelling for Business.
Don’t give up. Never give up. Through whatever challenges you face, or decisions which seem difficult – the secret is to keep going. Obstacles show up to measure how badly you want something. That something may be different for everyone. But in business, as in life – for business makes up such a large part of life – that something can be as simple as progress. Making progress every day means you are giving more – for no one prospers and no business can flourish if not in service to others.
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".
