Hey friends, I wanted to pass this along. Eugene is a homeless entrepreneur working odd jobs. Domaining could become one. “I’m buying land!” ~ Eugene, a homeless man in NC buying his first domain, for under 2 bucks. Who knows whether (BlackGolf.club) will fetch him enough for a pair of boots…or more. Surviving is on your mind in a shelter. Owning real estate is not even on the map. I've often wondered about the idea of educating someone living in a shelter or a car to develop domains as virtual real estate. I had a scholarship to attend Namescon in Austin Texas recently. The people I met were incredible. I was blessed to have time with Harold Nue, Dave Evanson, Rob Monster, Alvin Brown, and then, thanks to Jorge Verdugo, go to lunch with a few veteran domainers and the Booth Brothers. One day looked down, out my 6th floor window at The Omni, and saw a surreal picture. On the left, an international group of investors/CEOs/domainers... eating breakfast, networking and about to bid on seven figure domain names. To my right, just outside the hotel, a group of homeless men and women waiting in line in the cold as a church opened it’s doors for a hot meal. Surely, I thought, someone in that group to the right could turn a profit if given a chance to invest. I've been working on this in my city. For Eugene, a homeless hustler, buying BlackGolf.club wasn’t his first step. He pulled an old laptop out of his bag at the soup kitchen a few months ago, and asked for help using it. I became convinced that his curiosity, intuitiveness, and street sense made him a great candidate for a new type of social entrepreneurship. Besides, he’s been my friend for years. So, after weeks of tutorial over lunch (and providing him clothes, reading glasses and bus passes) we researched, strategized, and opened his own account. With the popular “.club” domain on sale at $1.57, and, although high, an Estibot appraisal of $1,900, he laughed and pulled the trigger.
