Entrepreneurship can take many different forms, as well as multiple forms—sometimes all at once—as Kentucky businessperson and author Angela Correll very well knows. Correll just released “Granted,” the third novel in her May Hollow Trilogy. Her first book was adapted into a stage production for the historic Pioneer Playhouse in Danville, Kentucky. She also is the co-owner of The Bluebird Café in Stanford, Kentucky, and founder of Kentucky Soaps & Such.
Physician and entrepreneur Luke Murray, co-founder of the Kentucky Entrepreneur Hall of Fame (EHOF), shares his experience writing “Unbridled Spirit: Lessons In Life and Business From Kentucky’s Most Successful Entrepreneurs.” The new book profiles 19 successful Kentucky entrepreneurs and examines many of the core challenges of starting and running a successful business. What inspired you to write ‘Unbridled Spirit’?
A few years ago, I was teaching a post-college level leadership course. As part of the course, participants were to introduce themselves and describe what they were doing with their lives. One student, who appeared confident, sat in the front row. But when it came his turn to introduce himself, he replied weakly. “My life is a mess,” he said. “A hot mess.”The rest of the students applauded. Mess was an apt description for many of them as well.
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".
