Finally sold a domain yesterday. It’s been a while but I figured if I keep making good decisions and doing good things then eventually I’ll sell something. I did and one sold. I’d tell you what I sold but I’ll save it for Sherpa. Call it what you want Karma, God, whatever it is, I’ve been taken care of this week.
Someone emailed me and wondered with all this Africa talk if I was going to start trying to raise money for my charities. The answer is no. Not at this point. I have never asked anyone to donate money. The only time I ask is for someone else’s cause, not mine. In 20 years I have never asked one person for a cent to help my causes. I won’t let my daughter sell anything for a school or organization because I don’t want to impose on others while she tries to raise $25 for a field trip. I have never felt right asking someone to give to my cause, to support my endeavors. I feel like I am using my friendship, my relationship, or my position to force them to give. If they don’t they feel guilty. I have never wanted anyone to feel like they have to. Putting my kid in the middle is even worse. I always just bought whatever my daughter had to sell to avoid asking others. And buying everything was a bit of a strain back in the early days. I remember selling some stuff on eBay to try and buy 30 containers of cookie dough. I cringe when I see my wife’s boss bringing in sales sheets to her place of work. That’s as bad as it gets. Asking subordinates to buy something.
I’m not saying that someone raising money or asking for money is bad. I just struggle doing it. I guess I have always hoped I make enough money that I can be like Gates or some other wealthy guy and do it on my own. I know its not realistic but it’s worked so far. Just on a much smaller scale. I’ve been able to give my time and some money and made my own little dent. I’m not doing a good enough job myself so I see no need to ask someone else to help when I’m not doing all I can personally. Once I’m tapped out financially and time wise, maybe them I will ask others to chip in. Until then I will keep plugging away and like I said in the beginning paragraph, I feel confident that good things will happen as long as I keep running hard on a good path. Here are today’s names.

Godaddy Names With Bids
All names chosen by me Shane, or Josh . (ie you click through and purchase a name you like) or an occasional paid listing. Everything I say is based on my own research or is opinion. Do your own due diligence. That means look it up yourself if you don’t think the stats or my opinion is correct. I hand choose my names but I am paid to make this list by the auction houses, individuals that are auctioning names, and Godaddy affiliate links. Keep that in mind and only buy names that YOU think are good
