At what point do people stop calling my “part time” work a hobby. I absolutely know that Elliot meant no harm by saying that people that domain invest in the evenings and weekends are hobbyist but how much money does one have to make to make this another job or owned company? I admit, this comes a heavy second to my nursery business but it’s no small business in itself. I will show a mid six figure PROFIT in 2012 and fully expect to hit $XXX,XXX in 2013. Not sales, but profit. That’s one hell of a hobby. I now can make a living domain investing but why would I want to do that when I can do both? I get to reap the rewards of both with 0 financial pressure to perform in the domain business. A lack of pressure that allows me to make more money and share resources of the two companies. All I am selling is how much time a person puts in to something is not how it is judged. It’s the results. It’s how much money did you make. I don’t care if you do this every hour of the week unless you make bank. If you’re working full time at this and you make less than me at my “hobby” my advice is this. Get a job. And again, this is nothing against Elliot, his statement was not guided at me nor was he chastising anyone. Now on to the names and the daily quote.
