Business.com For $300 Million?

I’d pay $300 million for Business.com if I had it.


But… Wired has a good point.

When I found out that Kevin Rose originally wanted Dig.com but settled for Digg.com instead, I remember thinking that sometimes a domain can be “too” perfect. I like “digg” much better than “dig.” I lost my domain puritanism for good when I watched BoingBoing.net hit number one on Technorati despite the unsexy dot net domain. Business.com will never be worth $400 million, but it would be entertaining to see it sell for such an insane price.

Did you know that Google creators originally were going to get something like Goggle (I think), and they typed Google by accident in the search box?

$300 million seems steep, but so did $7.5 million back in 99 when they bought it. What would/could it be worth in 5 more years?

Actual Amazon.com Reviews...

"Jim Kukral's new book pisses me off. And not because it's a lousy book, and reading it was a waste of time. His book pisses me off because in it, Jim interviews really, really, successful people who ARE living their dreams. And, I'm jealous. I want a turn, you know?" - Joel Libava

"I loved this short, informative, encouraging e-book. The stories of others who have been successful building a business around their lifestyle is a wake up call for me to get off my butt and do it! Thanks Jim for this book!" - Sienna

"I was having kind of a blah day, I read this book, now I feel like a million bucks and have renewed inspiration to go make a million bucks." - Eric Woodard

    They have a solid business model, that’s for sure. At $15 million EBITDA that would be a solid sell.
