Dear Domain Name, It’s not you, it’s me. It’s time to let you go!

Last night I made a difficult decision and sold my premium domain name to another Domainer. I owned it for almost 5 years and not a single day went buy that I regret investing high $XXXX U.S. Dollars to acquire it.
The amount I accepted was not what I was hoping to get for it. Domain names like the one I sold last night sell easily for $10,000+ to End Users.
It’s not easy to say “Goodbye”. After all I had hoped to sell this domain name for $100,000 U.S. Dollars!
I wish I could say luck was not on my side but luck is irrelevant in the art of sales or in life. When you sell a domain name for a nice amount, people quickly call you lucky!
“Lucky?” Did luck play a role in my success in turning a hobby into a profit? Is my Brother, Father and Best Friend unlucky for being diagnosed with a terminal disease? Am I unlucky for having half of my thyroid removed so I don’t get cancer?
Luck is irrelevant. I spend the last 12 years and 4 months and 24.5 days investing time and money to learn the Art of Domaining. I flip Reg Fee expired domain names on a monthly basis and walk away with profit not because I depended on luck! Rather because I took the initiative to take the first step like everything else in life and chased a dream.
In high school kids laughed at me for dreaming big in life. They referred to me as the dreamer. Growing up being shifted from school to school, refugee shelter to shelter, country to country every 8-24 months for the first 18 years of my life was not easy. Dreaming of a better life is all you have when you are born at the bottom!
I dreamed of a future where I would sell my premium domain name for $100,000 dollars. My dream also had a backup plan “buying and selling expired reg fee domain names” on the side.
Instead of profiting $100,000 dollars from one domain name, I managed to sell an X amount of reg fee expired domain names and collect $100,000 dollars in small amounts; ranging from $1-$995 per domain name.
Be realistic with yourself and don’t dream of winning a Million Dollars rather dream of making a Million Dollars.
If I had enough money believe me I would not have sold my premium domain name last night. Sometimes in life we must make sacrifices!
Below is the letter I wrote this morning to my Premium Domain Name:
Dear Premium Domain Name,
It’s time to let you go, I tried for 5 years to make this work but it’s just not working out. You’re too good for me; I think you deserve someone better.
It’s just bad timing. I really like you.
I think we both know this isn’t working out. I feel we have grown apart and gone in two different directions.
It’s not you, it’s me! Good bye my Premium Domain Name
Until my next Domaining Article, Happy Domaining!
