Chinese Domain Market Newsletter

The internet enables us to work at home and enjoy the same lifestyle we once had before arrival of the industrial revolution. I'm a good example. I work at home but my clients are thousands of miles away in another country. A few days ago, I had a Skype chat with a domain professional in England who also works at home. He plans to travel in Europe for an extended period while still running his business on the road. Yesterday I was busy writing Namepros private messages to help a friend with an urgent issue while he was literally driving to Las Vegas for the Namescon conference. Today I'm recording myself giving a brief talk on the Chinese domain market. The video will be sent to Europe for an upcoming domain conference. All from the comfort of my own home! Here's the post.
