Billionaire Tilman Fertitta, the founder of restaurant and hospitality corporation Landry's and the owner of the Houston Rockets, says it's essential to send thank you cards to others. "In the hospitality business we like letting our customers know how important they are to us," he says. The billionaire spends about $150,000 a year on stationary to thank patrons for visiting his many establishments. "Customers love to know they're appreciated," says Tilman.
The companies at the top of the list shifted just slightly from last year. Microsoft jumped up by one spot to take third place, while electric car company Tesla fell from No. 3 to sixth place. Retail giant Amazon climbed from fifth place to fourth place and Netflix, which made the top 10 in 2017, fell to No. 13. In the most recent report, two new companies managed to push their way into the top 10: ride-hailing app Uber and e-commerce site Alibaba.
Self-made billionaire and Virgin Group founder Richard Branson looks for three key skills in all of his CEOs: They are disruptive, they know how to have fun and they are not afraid to take risks. In a recent blog post, Branson explains that none of these crucial traits are taught in schools. "Children are taught to pass exams rather than understand concepts and expand their minds," writes the billionaire. This push to cram rather than understand is hugely problematic, he says.
Also asked @carolynryan and @deanbaquet whether they consider babe’s article on Aziz Ansari irresponsible journalism. Dean stated that it was not. Carolyn said that it created much needed discourse on this grey area that’s not quite sexual harassment on the #MeToo level. @NYABJhttps://t.co/is8PehHj2B
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".
