    Glad to see someone woke from the dream sooner than most.

    It's smart and brave to quit when it's time to do so.. good luck to you!

    After graduating my dream was to get a contract on a national tv channel as a content producer, and after a lot of time and expense, I achieve it, to finish realizing, that it does not matter what I wanted, It depends on whether someone wants to renew the contract or not, so after several years the contract was not renewed, then ask me, this is what I want - bet for others and not for me ?, Then, i make the decision, never again depend on anyone, my dreams will be possible for what I can do. - this was 6 years ago.

    Yes we can.

    Well, it's your call to make, of course, after all this loooooong time domaining for... 30 days! O_o

    Seriously now: domaining is, well, a marathon. You're obviously a... sprinter. So, a good call, I think. Better luck in your future endeavors.

    Sounds to me like your approach to domaining is all wrong. Whether you are new to domaining or not, it might be worth coming up wih a new strategy to avoid wasting time and money. If you don't want to put in the work - fail, and take the easy way out.

    You've been a member for barely a month.
    Did you expect overnight success ?
    You've wasted money because you've bought bad names. As simple as that. Had you done more research (educate yourself), then you would have bought better domains, and made sales with perseverance. But again, patience is needed in this business.

    Maybe this is not for you, but most domainers should start over anyway (or quit). Don't feel bad, it's not like you have failed where everybody else succeeds.
    Perhaps the best right now is not to quit, but to step back, read, read, read, and do not buy anything until you get a better idea. Good luck.

    Not everybody is built for it, it's not for everybody. He lacks the patience and money. Probably better off doing something else.

    Trust me, i made more $$$$$ in web developing than domaining, domaining is not for me either. I just buy domains to develop , rarely i hand reg for fun if its for coupon .88

    its not for everyone. Keep at it. learn about crypto you may end up doing good in that.

    What kind of domains have you invested in ?
    And how long have you tried to sell them?

    Domaining 2017 requires alot of capital, back even 5 years ago, you could still acquire, and accumulate good domains for $8-$100, those same domains today are costing a minimum of $69 - $2,xxx in auctions, as there are about a dozen large players dominating 80% of the action.

    Unless you have alot of capital, or want to put in alot of sweat equity, domaining is not easy, especially starting with a limited budget, and no domains, I am not sure why everyone thinks it is an easy industry?

    Sure the barrier entry is reg fee, but the cost to build out, hold, and renew a portfolio is massive.

    Better to learn the lessons of dollars and time spent early on rather than after years and big amounts of dollars spent that can never be recouped.

    Best wishes in your future endeavors.

    Nothing wrong with leaving. Plenty of dying fish flopping around in the ntld threads who’ve convinced themselves they’re succeeding, so you’re already ahead of many

    Doesn't that take massive capital, I think many domainers come here thinking they buy 10-12 domains for $100, turn it into $5,000, and rinse, and repeat.

    If domaining were quick and easy money, everyone would do it and eventually it would be flooded with tons of people looking for quick and easy--oh wait.....haha. Best of luck to you in whatever you do but please do know that anything worth your time and money is going to take just that--your time and money.

    Maybe you are too impatience (??)

    You joined "Oct 27, 2017" according to your profile.

    How long have you been investing in domains, and how much money have you spent?

    May I suggest.. find out how much you are willing to risk yearly, and slim down your portfolio accordingly.. keep the best and let the rest go.
