He has a very interesting story in how he built his domain name business and how he saw the rise of the internet and the need for a domain name just as he saw in the early 90's with phone numbers. He shares some practical advice for those of you looking to get into domain names and you'll love some of the one liners that Rick dishes out in this podcast as well.

In this podcast episode I chat with Brian Jones who I first interviewed earlier this year about his interesting internet business. He runs several niche movie memorabilia websites surrounding the popular Christmas movies "A Christmas Story" and "Christmas Vacation."

On this podcast Brian talks about how he first got started making money online by building and selling the infamous Leg Lamp from the "A Christmas Story" movie out of his condo. We also cover how he took a big risk and bought the actual house from the movie on eBay and ultimately grew his business to a point that he needed a huge 10,000 square foot warehouse just to house the movie merchandise. This is a truly awesome story of a passionate internet entrepreneur who was able to build a successful business from scratch.

I am a huge fan of both of these Christmas movies and it's been a family tradition that we watch them every year so this conversation in particular was very exciting for me to participate in. I hope you enjoy it.

In this podcast episode I speak to Wendy Piersall who just released Mom Blogging For Dummies about how she used what was happening in her everyday life and translated it into a huge and profitable blog network of kids activity websites.

We talk about how she first got started earning money online and what projects she’s working on right now. The conversation we had as a whole was great, because I often hear from people that complain about not knowing what niches to build websites in and what Wendy has done by translating the activities she first put together for her kids and migrated onto the web is a terrific example of turning passion into profits.

Justin was the website broker on the seven figure website deal for DealofDay.com for our last guest on the podcast Joel Comm from episode 2.

I'm a huge fan of buying and selling websites as a way to make money online having sold one of my websites in a deal worth six figures in late 2010. I met Justin when I was in Colorado as the buyers consultant for Deal Of Day and thought he'd be a great person to come on the show.
