Iâ€™m kind of obsessed with minimalist budgeting because you can prioritize your financial goals, while simplifying the process at the same time (aka makes life easier). The minimalist budget is a system that simplifies your finances while helping you achieve your financial goals. You probably have heard of minimalism, but you may not know what it has to do with money. In general, minimalism means prioritizing whatâ€™s valuable to you, while intentionally reducing clutter inÂ other areas.
For as long as I can remember, people are always asking me how Iâ€™m able to do everything I do-Â I work full time, run a blog on the side, maintain relationships with friends and family, eat a healthy diet, read, listen to podcasts, journal, practice my faith. I am not perfect, and I make a lot of mistakes, but I have managed to master my days so that I’m living intentionally and designing a life I love. The way I have managed to do this is in large part by having a plan for my mornings.
The feeling of having so much of your paycheck to debt payments is stressful and depressing. This is how I felt in 2011, when I graduated law school. Fast forward to today when my debt has allowed me to find a career I love and make money blogging (and I’ve paid off over $100k in debt along the way). I never thought any of this was possible. I graduated law school in 2011 with $206,000 of student loan debt. The interest rates were between 6.5%-8%.
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".
