ATTORNEY'S ADVICE - NO CHARGE Read this and make a copy for your files in case you need to refer to it someday. Maybe we should all take some of his advice! A corporate Attorney sent the following out to the employees in his company.

1.. Do not sign the back of your credit cards. Instead, put "PHOTO ID REQUIRED."

2.. When you are writing checks to pay on your credit card Accounts, DO NOT put the complete accou nt number on the "For" line. Instead, just put the last four numbers The credit card company knows the rest of the number, and anyone who might be handling your check as it passes through all the check processing channels won't have access to it.

3.. Put your work phone # on your checks instead of your home Phone. If you have a PO Bo…

iReport.com SOLD for $750,000

I'm reading Rick Schwartz blog today and found out his sale for iReport.com to CNN and got some interesting thought to share with you.

The domain name iReport.com sold for $750,000.
$750k is a stepping stone. What it does is take what we do from theory to reality. When we look back at this sale in 10 years, people will say it was cheap and should have been sold for 10x that number. It's a stepping stone because sometime soon it will be unusual for any good domain to sell for under 7 figures. Then 8 figures. We are entering the period of time where we will see some significant domain sales.

Domain Appraisal is worthless according to Traffic founder Rick Schwartz:
If domainers want to be FOOLS and keep selling for "X", I will keep saying that domainers are leaving a FORTUNE on the table and don’t understand the anatomy of a great domain name. Maybe this will blow the lid off all the appraisals services. They are ALL WORTHLESS. Absolutely worthless. Not a single one has a …

New home for EMIL.KING.NET

Hello to everyone,

This is to inform you that we have a new home, new mailing list, new template and; neat tools to keep you posted and interact with fellow entrepreneurs.

This website (blog) is now powered by blogger.com courtesy by google. The main reason of moving from dedicated hosting to google hosting service is to eliminate server administration on my long list of daily routine. Without server administration, I will be able to allocate my time to manage our projects, advertising and marketing services, buying more domains, be able to respond on some emails on a timely manner, etc.

Transitioning documents, this will be a slow process as I intend to re-upload only 3 months old articles useful to some of you. For the mean time, please peruse the website and don't hesitate to let me know if you have any good feedback (^_^).

Just in case you want to see our old website, it is right here:

Cheers for now,
