Mark had a great writeup about his history with domain investing. It’s always interesting to see how people got in this industry and what they’re doing in today’s markets. He’s done and is doing a great job and most importantly, is making a living. That’s more than 99% of the people in this industry. For me. I’ve always felt there is no better way to make money than to build a business. I feel more comfortable selling things to help people do something than actually doing that something. While I giddy over the amount of money I make a year domain investing, I can make more money in one day at the nurseries and garden centers than I do all year in domain investing. But I do this because I enjoy it and the money I earn goes to the fun things in life. There is zero stress (although getting kicked out of DBR was unnerving) and it gives me the opportunity to do some things I may not otherwise had a chance to do. I also realize because I don’t have to live on domain money that I am able to reinvest and take some chances that I wouldn’t if I had bills to pay. My goals are simple. Make at least $50K a year in profits in domain investing. Buy at least $35K worth of new names every year above what I sold. To ONLY spend money that I’ve made in domaining. A complete reinvestment strategy. No outside money. It’s pennies for some in the industry, a goal for others. I’ve reached my goal three years in a row and therefore I’m completely satisfied. I will continue to concentrate on the nursery as there are millions a year to be made. And I will continue to buy and sell domains, because there is a lot of “extra” millions to be made and I might as well be the one to make them.
