    I was reading an old article about the sale of candydotcom for $3 million. Looking at the whois, it shows 2 drops!


    I love the fact that it was a watermelon farmer(Scott Day) and a furniture salesman(Rick Schwartz) who

    saw the future in the mid 90s.

    Money comes and goes, can't dwell on the what ifs.

    People do this all the time. While it's not $3 million, I recently acquired a 37 1/2" tall and 59 1/2" wide $200-600 vintage Finesse Originals 3D sculpture for $30 at a yard sale. The woman who sold it to me didn't know what it was (one of her relatives gave it to her), but I saw the value, and now it's hanging up in my living room.

    Rick Schwartz also has equity in the company.

    More than just investing in great names, Rick Schwartz doesn't just take the first good offer that comes his way on a domain. I think the difference between great domain investors and everyone else is the ability to turn down a high 6 figure offer on a domain in expectation of receiving a 7 figure one, even if it is ten years down the road.
