Domain name pricing varies WILDLY. I often see them for prices in the 100k+ range. For this, my gut says 2-5k. But I’d check a domain broker for recent sales of similar names.

My guess is a few thousand, but get that pressure checked. Honestly - domain name importance is reducing over time, with all sorts of other non-direct ways to reach their site. So one thing to remember is that to them, this is likely a “nice to have” and less so a “must have”

If they trademarked that name and used it before you got the URL, they don’t have to pay you at all.

Thnx Good to know. My initials are actually their name. The extra word I’ve attached to it isn’t part of their company name but makes sense for them to want given what they sell.

If they manufacture industrial equipment using renewable energy and/or do good for the world in a way, just give it to them, since you don't care about the domain. If they aren't interested in helping the world in any form, charge as much as you want and don't settle for any less.

Don't sell it outright. Have an indefinite contract where they rent it per month.

In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years). Thoughts?

Genuine question: What are the most common exit options at Google BizOps? (1) For internal transfer to PM, those teams seem to prefer to hire Google engineers. (2) For internal transfer to Chief of Staff, why those teams don’t promote their own Strategy & Op folks? (3) For BizOps internal promotion, there are not many Director positions. (4) For leaving Google, I don’t know where people usually go… Please share your thoughts / correct me if I’m wrong. Thanks!
