DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Monday, August 2nd 2015

Aug 03 2015
We are in the Trophy culture. I watched HBO sports and they talked about all this and it reminded me of the conversation I have constantly with my family.  We do not like the way society is now starting to raise people to think that effort and being better than someone else at something is wrong.  I’m not one of those people that thinks that my generation is better than the new or how I was raised is better than how our kids generation is being raised.  But I will say this.  The next generation doesn’t know how to lose. They are rewarded for everything. Trophies for all, first or last, effort or not.  The have no measurement of true success.  They measure success in their life by likes from fake friends on Instagram and Facebook.  The biggest positive of moving to a new school is a chance to add Instagram friends that will like their photos.  By not acknowledging ordinary I am now labeled as cruel.  By giving praise for effort and the hard work and not settling for “best they can” I am labeled a Tiger Dad.   My daughter is chastised at school and practice for being a “Try Hard”, which evidently is now frowned upon.  I just hope we don’t get to a point where just showing is good enough. It’s half the battle but once you’re there the second half begins.  Sorry for the rant. Here is today’s list.   19 years old.   Great tech brand that really could be used for anything.  First thought is online security  Getting lots of bids and the 24 million Google results are all League of Legends stuff. 19 years old  Quite a few businesses named Amanda’s.   18 years old and under $100 at press time.  Pretty sure your can sell this for at least $300 to one of them  I think water is our most precious resource and getting it and keeping it is a big business.  No bidders  The positive is it has the word Pup in it. The negative is the Far East doesn’t like U   QT sold for over $600K.  Putting a 9 in front of it saves you a little money  A steal under $350 IMO. I’m a bidder   I’ve been to NY and I’m pretty sure there isn’t a big donkey network.  A few bidders if you want a piece of this  Double Qs bring all the boys to the yard  Many of you are and many of you would do well to own this  Like this a lot because I like all the 5Ns that end in 50.  Its my thing  159 visit per month for under $50   There are lots of .cc that come through the auctions and I don’t like most, but this one I like   This was up for auction not too long ago that got canceled and was up to $3400.  Up again with a much lower bid  Ending later but great name and I can tell you the results of the health price is always high

New GODADDY COUPON CODE: None Work, None.  Click the link to See that None of them Work Godaddy Click This For No Savings   One V bad, Three Vs good  Not really what its called (home schooling) but everyone knows what it represents and that makes it valuable  at $7900   I saw this for sale for $6000 on a sales newsletter in 2014   They capitalize the D in the writeup.  I think keeping it small makes it cool and tech. The ONLY domain in this themed auction worth a bid IMO

SEDO’s Live Auctions Going on Now   My favorite name on the board today but I don’t think I can flip it quickly.  I think the price will not be low enough that it will be able to sell quickly in the near future. Just my opinion  2nd favorite and on the contrary here.  There is always a chance to sell an for more, regardless of the price

    Shane, just wanted to comment on your opening line. I am in 100% agreement with the whole trophy generation culture. I’m glad that Real Sports did this show and I can see why it’s sweeping the nation, because the majority of young children don’t have good role models and apparently they either aren’t good at sporting activities or don’t understand you must try hard, as well as practice, practice, practice to get better. I see kids nowadays that have no clue that trophies and awards are only for winners or for distinguishing the best from the rest. I can tell you from my experience growing up, I wouldn’t even want a trophy for second place or for participating. I cringe when I hear other parents think it’s OK and good thing to award children for participating.

    The scary part is that they don’t see the correlation between hard work and desire and how it relates to work ethic as an adult. Real Sports did a good job by bringing in psychologists to point out the fact that this is having a detrimental effect on young adults moving forward. They think that everything should be given to them just by showing up and don’t know how to process rejection and struggle with it.

    Kids are simply younger adults and their actions at a young age will have a direct impact on how they transition into adults. Challenging kids and making them “earn it”, is the only way to help them develop and become successful adults. I’m thinking the parents who allow their children to be trophy kids are the same people who rarely challenge themselves in any situation and avoid situations that are formidable or demanding.

    Shane you are so RIGHT! How to we turn it around?

    Thinking about this “problem” just hurts my brain. Thank you for the insight and speaking on topic about many of life issues. I may not always agree with you, but I find your thoughts and opinions ALWAYS get me to thinking (in a good way). It pays to consider all sides of an issue and then strive to be part of the solution rather than aggravate the problem!

    I was actually having this conversation this weekend. The participation trophy just shows that you have to show up the get through life. Always expecting a pat on the back no matter what.
