BREAKING: United States Congress is coming to T.R.A.F.F.I.C.!!

Afternoon Folks!!

We are happy to announce that Congressman Cliff Stearns, (Rep. Fla.) member of the very powerful 'Energy and Internet-Sub-committee' will be speaking at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. SOUTH BEACH on Monday, October 18th on the latest bills that effect Domains and the Internet.

With the new Bill sponsored by Senator Leahy causing such an uproar around the world, this could not be more timely. To our knowledge, he is the highest ranking person in the U.S. Government to ever address a Domain conference. This is one that you won't want to miss!

A very special thanks to Chad Folkening on his efforts in behalf of everyone in the Industry!

We are working on another huge surprise as well. A real long shot, but we are swinging for the fences at this TRAFFIC. A TRAFFIC like none other. The schedule will be complete next week.

Have a GREAT Day!

Rick’s 36 Tip Checklist to Help you Start Successfully Domaining TODAY!!

Afternoon Folks!!

So you want to be in the Domain Game? You are sick of Pigeon Shit. You are ready to see what you are doing wrong. Here is MY VIEW on domains. MY step by step guide to free yourself from Pigeon Shit!

If you seriously want to do this, just abandon all the bullshit you think you know. Before you can progress you have to cure the disease. The posts of the last few months and particularly the last few days was to do that. Now onto the real method.

1. You are planting a SEED not buying a domain name.

2. You are staking a claim not buying a domain name.

3. Seeds take time to germinate, mature and bear fruit

4. You are planting trees not grass.

5. This is a 5 year plan

6. If I just lost you, you may be lost forever. Don’t have 5 minutes? You will piss away the next 5 years and still end up right here to figure out where you went wrong.

7. Your mindset has to change from the immediate gratification to that of investor. Hooker or Call Girl. One gets $50 and stands in the rain one gets $5000 and sits in a penthouse. Choose!

8. Why am I wasting my time with this? Because the start is where folks go off course. THIS is the PLACE they all goof at.

9. Don’t quit your day job! Seriously. You need $$$ to fund a hobby into a business.

10. If you don’t have a day job, get one unless you don’t need to.

11. Take a deep breath

12. You FIRST purchases are VERY important so you MUST get these right or you are off course and out of the game until then and by that time you will likely be broke and confused and frustrated and angry.

13. Pick a category. Any category.

14. Make sure there is a Yellow Page listing for that category.

15. Find the listings with the most advertisements

16. Start drilling.

17. You will see that vein picked apart like a Friday Morning Turkey after Thanksgiving.

18. Try xylophones. Less crowded.

19. Work up to better categories.

20. Start with a noun like Insurance.

21. Add adjective to the beginning like:,, THOUSANDS to try and find. Drill. Don’t be lazy. Drill. Thousands.

22. Use Verbs.,, They are taken. is available as I write this. The audience there is tiny. So look for bigger audiences. More common items.

23. When you know the difference between a domain and Pigeon Shit, THEN you will recognize domains of value the INSTANT you see them. Just like I know Pigeon Shit the instant I see them.

24. Drop lists now come into play. When you know what to look for you can go thru a list of 100 in 3-5 seconds.

25. Domains of value standout

26. Set a realistic budget. You buy your car for $20k or whatever, invest in yourself

27. Buy with a rifle not a shotgun.

28. Don’t be a spammer.

29. Be creative

30. Don’t buy and try to sell 10 minutes later

31. Activate the domain and monitor for traffic.

32. Don’t be a whore and try and sell 30 minutes after that

33. Just put it in inventory and assuming it was a value, pat yourself on the back for a good grab! It’s a fish!

34. Repeat, repeat, repeat

35. There will be a time for selling.

36. If you do it right, you will be too busy getting domains to worry about selling them and then they will be chasing you too.

Yes, I hear ya. You have no money and you need to flip fast. Fine! But you still have to go through these steps to find a domain of value. And if you do it right., you will find a liitle income along the way.

My test for a truly valuable domains is if it stands alone can I build a business around it if all I ever did was focus on that one domain from now on. That’s the test. I have the luxury of not having to do that. But you MUST do that if you want to start in the right direction.

Of course you can’t start going the right direction until you come to a complete stop and change course. Folks have a choice. Buy pigeon shit and make pennies and lose dollars or understand what makes a domain have value and transform what you do.

Clear out the inventory and start fresh again if you are losing $$$.

Just KNOW there gems that sell way below what pigeon shit sells for.

No one post will give you all the answers. But almost all the answers lay within the confines of these several hundred blog posts.

Have a GREAT Day!

Life is About”Time Management” How Well do you Manage Your Time?

Morning Folks!!

So many wonder why they are not having the results they would like. But I find one thing interesting. I have been retired or semi-retired since 1998. But even in my state I start earlier in the morning and work later at night than most. But to me it is not work. It is called 'Life' and my work is weaved in it. So I look forward to Monday when others dread it.

My job is to get up before the sun and do more work before breakfast than most folks will do next week. I start and finish projects. I plant seeds. I learn new things. I test new whatever. I read the headlines. I check the market. I make decisions. I set a course. I make a list every Monday of things that MUST be accomplished that week. I make sure I use my time wisely and don't waste time on 'Gopher' things. I do most of my purchases on Amazon so I don't piss away time doing the same thing and having to run all over town. I don't leave this keyboard unless there is a REASON to do so.

The ONLY natural resource any of us have is 'Time.' That's it and it is limited. Not only is it limited it usually does not come with a meter to let you know when it is running low. Time. Nothing matters more. So making the most of your TIME is the true key. How much time do you waste? Don't laugh. It's really not funny.

When you can prioritize life, you will never have to work again. Read that once more. When you can prioritize life, you will never have to work again. You will find more time than you knew existed and when you find those extra hours you will produce $$$, be more effective and use less energy. But if you are a SLAVE to the bad TIME habits you might have found comfortable over the years, they are actually the chains that hold you back.

You know the type. Always too busy to do anything but accomplishes nothing as opposed to the guy that is busy as hell and always finds TIME to do whatever is needed, whenever it is needed. That is what is the TRUE dividing line in life. The doers and the talkers. The talkers look at it as an insurmountable workload and then their mind does not allow them to do the job and be successful. The doers don't say a word. They just do. They just roll up their sleeves and make whatever is needed HAPPEN. So which are you? Which do you want to be? You do have the control to change it if you are willing to STOP. Stop and consider. Stop and take a deep breath. Stop and question why you are not where you see yourself?

I can never stop a winner and I can never make a loser. Only you have that power and it is your attitude and approach that determines your destiny and success more than any other factor. Olympians are champions because of strong minds not strong bodies. Anyone can make a strong body. But it is how you use the body controlled by the mind that counts. That separates the winners from the losers. Study Olympians and their discipline and you apply that to anything in life and you will be a winner, a champion.

Have a GREAT Day!
