One possible option is online education. Understanding the difficulties that busy adults face Chip Paucek decided to help solve the dilemma by co-founding 2U. Paucek explains in The Morning Blend interview, “For the first time ever you don’t have to pick up your life, quit your job and move to attend a great school and really become the person you want to be.”I’m a first-generation college student and that experience could not have had a more fundamental impact on my life.
You’re a first-time parent, and while you are beyond happy, it slowly begins to settle in that you need to buy baby stuff. Then the flurry of questions start racing in:Not to mention the dizzying selection of brands from Nosefrida to Stokke to California Baby.
You ask yourself, “There has to be a better way?” That is in part what drove Josh Wiesman to create Smilo. Wiesman explains, “I saw how family and friends would struggle to find the best for their kids, combing through retail aisles with lots of trial and error. I want Smilo to be the brand we wished we had available when our kids were babies.”My inspiration for creating Smilo came from years of developing category leading products for other brands.
There’s a darker side to culture: when we get so focused on our rules that we turn them into decrees about how life should be and label people or processes as good or bad if they don’t follow the rules. | vishen lakhiani #lifegoals#philosophy#strategy

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".
