    It was a privilege to be interviewed by Mike Cyger for his excellent show. Check it out if you haven't yet.

    Really enjoyed watching it Rod. Fantastic flip and great story, especially how NamePros played a part in the sale of the domain name.

    Rod, Congrats on the sale and every nice ROI!
    I read your story and it gave me new motivation to stay in this domaining hobby of mine. Do your research and there's still gold in the expired lists!

    Greate deal!
    Congratulations!
    Fast sale, good profit.

    But it's not a top price for the domain name. I'm sure.
    Insurance - huge and very rich business in Russia.

    Hello @indiegrind ,
    I really enjoyed the video as well! Great to see what can be achieved just by thinking outside the box a bit,
    it was Russian, you are clearly not Russian :xf.laugh:, but you made it happen regardless.
    Great ROI and I hope to see more of you and your thinking around here!
    Also, that 5k and other sales you and Michael spoke of early on in the video on the hand reg. is great stuff! Keep on hustling man, you're an inspiration to a lot of us! All the best! :xf.cool:

    Thank you all for the positive feedback. So sad to hear the news that DomainSherpa is ending today. I'm so glad I had the chance to share through that platform.

    It definitely was a shocker, I came across the news on Fbook and was just like "wow!", but at least you and Michael got to close it with a solid video and end it with a bang. I feel for the domainers who were still hoping to get on there with an interview of their own. Heck, even I had hopes for one day when I'm all grown up in this industry! :ROFL:
    It will definitely take some time from here on, but I am curious to see what/who will rise up and take the lead on this, as there's kind of a hole now with no more Sherpa vids coming out. Yet, it'll never quite be the same. So, congrats too in being the 404th to end it with!:xf.smile:

    I watched the whole interview, brilliant!

    It was great to get an insight into your domaining experience, Mike asked some great questions.

    Thanks for sharing your story.
