Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Wednesday March 1st



It’s one of the most exciting and scary parts of running a business. Borrowing money.  “I don’t need to borrow money, I self finance”  Congrats.  You are a rare breed. The rest of us have to borrow money to scale up.  To meet operating needs if you are a seasonal business.   I need over a million dollars up front to float everything before the spring sales come in and I hate asking for it every year.  Every year I hope that I will have enough in the bank so I don’t have to borrow.  Yet every year the business grows and money gets put back in.    Finances are usually personal but I don’t mind talking about it because financing is what drives, stagnates, or kills a business.  The numbers and the zeros may change but plain and simple, most businesses have to borrow money from other people to get bigger.  The key is trying to put assets as collateral not give away equity.

I don’t need to do that.  I am confident in the time frames of my business model that I can borrow the money and pay them back in a timely manner and keep the company and all the profits.  The difference between my business and a number Internet businesses is I actually make money.  I have to make money.   There is no burn rate.  The only burn rate I have is if I try and burn the place down to get insurance money.   All of this is why I approach things a little different in domain investing.  In some ways it helps, in some ways it hurts.   I often sell  too quickly to make profit because its in my nature to sell things when profits become great.  But all in all I make money and that’s probably more than most Internet businesses can say.

Here are today’s names.  Click the links for current price
