  1. Chef Patrick -

    all very true myths. i wish domaining was easy.

  2. The second myth, very very true. 🙂

  3. Now everyone is talking about the American economy and eclections, nice to read something different. Eugene

  4. Domaining is easy. It goes through similar cycles every couple of years. 2009 is probably the last year to get in on the action so keep your eyes wide open.


  5. Samit,

    #8 is where you are not exactly right. Increasing the breadth and width of your portfolio certainly does allow you to make more sales. The catch is, to increase the quality of the portfolio as well.

    I am saying this from experience. Had I not done this, I’d never have cracked the 100k sales barrier.
