going to meet at a domain conference
or what kind of opportunity
may come from casual conversations
with fellow attendees. I was
reminded of that in a note I just

Veteran owned domain sales and
consulting company at TargetRichDomains.com
with Don Nelson, a partnership
that blossomed when Toby and his
wife, Susan, met Don at the inaugural
Asheville Professional Domain Investor's
Meetup that DomainKing Rick
Schwartz staged in North
will serve as the new company's CEO
with Don filling the CMO role.
Nelson, who spent nearly four
decades in the cyber security space
after retiring from the Air Force,
will represent TargetRichDomains at
NamesCion Global conference
in Austin, Texas. It will be
a short trip for Don since he now
makes his home in San Antonio.
will regrettably miss this NamesCon
as Susan is undergoing knee
replacement surgery the same week.
However, he urged show goers to look
Don up (he can be contacted via
email to don @
noted "Don's deep data research,
analytical skills and insight are
invaluable to our mission of
matching end users with our domain
brands for sales, joint ventures,
startup partnerships as well as our
services as brand advisors."
