What kinds of changes do you foresee in this industry within the industry in the next year? The next 5 years?

What are the current trends that are directly impacting your business?

More competitors springing up on the Discord platform

Describe a recent challenge that you overcame.?

Making the crazy decision to build out and grow a domain name investor community on a platform designed for gamers at the time and doing it successfully.

What was the best advice you were ever given?

“You can’t connect the dots looking forward. You can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.” – Steve Jobs

What are you most looking forward to at the upcoming NamesCon?

Networking with other investors and promoting Domaincord

How would you describe NamesCon to a new domainer?

As this will be my first time attending this event specifically, I don’t really know what to expect. I have been active in the domain industry for a number of years though and even partake in Clubhouse rooms for domainers regularly.
