Hello, happy Saturday, and welcome to my weekend musings! We are on the plane now after an amazing week at New York Fashion Week. Fashion Metric was one of the sponsors for Nolcha Fashion Week and it was a blast seeing the runway shows and connecting up with some amazing designers and other awesome people in the fashion world.
When we’re in NYC our schedule is normally packed but with Fashion Week it was even more packed than usual. There wasn’t a single night where we got more than 3 hours of sleep and I can honestly say I’m probably the most exhausted I have been since college…and it was absolutely worth it!
I wanted to give a huge thanks to Raymond from Hybrid Domainer for filling in for me for most of the week and writing his usual awesome posts. I am very excited to finally having a few weeks in one place and while I love NYC, there really is no place like home.
On the domain-front we finished negotiating the biggest lease deal we’ve ever closed for a client. It took a lot longer than we expected but big deals do tend to take a long time. I also had a couple of domains sell from my own portfolio one of which I’ll be announcing on Facebook soon, the others were requested to be kept private by both the buyer and the seller which I’m finding to be the norm.
This week we also started working with some teams from Paul Graham’s Y Combinator and I’m excited about helping some really incredible startups get the domains they are looking for. Linton Investments is adding two new brokers to the team since my full time focus is Fashion Metric I’m continuing to hire and grow our team in LA and both of these brokers will be based here.
Okay, only an hour of battery life left and about 300 emails to go which means…back to emails! I hope you’re all having a great weekend, as always feel free to comment on any of my musing or share some of your own!
