Frank Schilling needs to find someone to bounce things off. To that I’ll add an image manager. He has had a terrible spring and seems to be losing touch with his market. Just yesterday he presented some ridiculous emails about .XYZ and how they could be used. He breaks the golden rule about talking about your expensive stuff and posts about his nice car that he had someone wash, getting rained on. He posts a tweet about his app that lets him see live, all the names that are being sold on the Uniregistry market. Our names, my names. He gets the data. And this was just yesterday. It’s almost like he can’t relate anymore to the average domain investor because he hasn’t been average for decade. He is in a whole other world. Most of us don’t have jets or fancy cars and live on an island. At least not from domain money. He is Apollo Creed when we are all still Rocky. And it comes across in his twitter account and his announcements.
And while I think he is struggling as a figurehead, I still think Frank is as intelligent and passionate about domains as anyone in the business. He is overly optimistic which I will still take over the people that complain and find every negative in our space. That’s why I am still a friend and a fan and would be on his team any day. That being said, he needs someone that is not a yes man to talk to. To ask if what he is about to say or announce is a good idea. Someone that will say it like it is. The ridiculous statements about Frank trying to scam people is ridiculous. He genuinely thinks what he is presenting is a good idea. He just needs that confidant to let him know it isn’t.

Quote of the Day: “I didn’t buy my first luxury watch or car until my businesses and investments were producing multiple secure flows of income. I was still driving a Toyota Camry when I had become a millionaire. Be known for your work ethic, not the trinkets that you buy.” — Grant Cardone

Have a name at auction and need more exposure? Send me an email. I Charge $10 per name per day. We may be able to help. If you have an auction you want to promote, email us for details.*All names chosen by me, Shane . (ie you click through and purchase a name you like) or an occasional paid listing.
