    Very hard to follow! What was this episode about?

  2. Data Glasses says:

    Many thanks for your time!

  3. Green Jobs says:

    Great interview and assumed that LinkedIn would have owned

  4. Carl says:

    OUTSTANDING!!! Thanks Chad for sharing this incredibly motivating and powerful information! And thanks to Drew and Tess for producing one of the best DomainSherpa interviews ever!!! Cheers, Carl

  5. steve says:

    Maybe it’s my small mind but does having foul breath add to the integrity of the conversation?

  6. Bill Kara says:

    Starts off with registering TMs and holding off valid owners for 6 months… that low point was pretty much the only thing that made any sense…


    1. doob says:

      WoW… you got any sense out of this. you are way ahead of me.

      1. Bill Kara says:

        He starts in the first few minutes letting us know how he’d register TMs of big brands that launched products before they secured the url….

        The rest was cringeworthy the entire time. Cudos to Tess and Andrew for trying to pull it back in.

        Andrews great analogy on a commercial property was completely lost on Chad.

        Very weird overall.

        I have a future show I’d pay good money to watch…
