It’s crazy. Its the end of September. I realize its a difficult time for everyone but the days are just flying by for me. I sold exactly ZERO domains in September and had the worst commission month in the history of DSAD in August. But the spring and summer was enough to hold me off the rest of the year and my trading has my account up 300% so its made up for the no income August September.
The no income month does have me grateful I don’t have to pay bills with sales. I guess I would be much more aggressive on my sales. I had some good offers that I probably would have taken if I had a car payment. For instance, I had a name I bought at closeout that I had a $100 offer that went to $500. A great return but I wanted $1000. I’m so lazy and my needs are so small that it’s not worth my time for $500. The name was Labor Share in the dot com and despite my purchase price, I think it’s worth even more than $1000. Ask me again today and I don’t even sell it for that. I am a very unmotivated seller. I know my names will be worth more down the road than they are today. I had another offer for $5K for L22.com. That name, my LLLs, and 123.io are my most offered names. They are also my most liquid. Between the 5 names, I could have $100K tomorrow. I would be underselling them but the liquidity is a security blanket and in my opinion a much better upside and value hold than bitcoin.
I’m hoping fall picks up like it always does. I’m hoping to sell at $50K to $100K worth of names which would be a great fall for me. I’ve been overpaying my quarterly taxes because I’ve such an incredible year and I hope I add to my tax liability, even more, this fall.
PS. Had a good chat with Steve Webb of Park.io. What a great guy and so smart. Knew he was a computer scientist but had no idea he had a Ph.D. in it. Look next Monday on Sherpa for the chat.
