What are you thankful for this holiday season?

Amanda Waltz & Jeffrey Gabriel

We have so much to be thankful for. First, our families and friends are what keep us going. We are so thankful for them and their health, this year and every year.

We are so thankful to have just celebrated two years of Saw.com. We have come so far since our launch in 2019. Besides working through a global pandemic, we overcame so many other obstacles and have had so many successes. We also have the best team to do it all with! To our six domain brokers and ten support staff, thank you for being on this ride with us!

Brooke Hernandez

I think the question is what am I not thankful for. This year I have been more than blessed with having a healthy family, wonderful job, and living in a place that I love. I am thankful for everyone I have been able to work with this year and have made some amazing friendships along the way. I am so excited to see how next year continues and what opportunities arise.

Rob Wilson

As always, I am thankful for having great friends, family and colleagues. I am grateful for my position at Saw.com where I can work with people I consider friends and be a part of so many great deals.

Paul Thomson

I am thankful for my family’s health and safety. Also seeing everyone in one day is a lot of traveling but well worth seeing their faces of joy on Christmas day. It is also my first family Christmas as a new husband to my wife Louise, so extra special.

Kris Hou

I am so thankful for everyone around me – my family, friends, colleagues, Amanda and Jeff. I am looking forward to what 2022 brings!

What is a personal or company goal you have for the New Year? 

Amanda Waltz & Jeffrey Gabriel

We built Saw.com on our passion for the domain industry and helping clients meet each and every one of their goals. We value honesty and transparency while working with our clients to help them be seen. In 2022, we know our team will continue to serve our clients and help them meet every goal our clients set.

On a personal note, we both wish to continue being a good parent, partner and friend to our loved ones.

Our company goal is to continue helping our customers be seen. Additionally, we hope to grow in the next year – work with more amazing clients and of course, buy and sell more domain names! 2022, we are ready for you!

Happy New Year everyone, wishing you a safe and happy holiday!

Brooke Hernandez

My goals for this coming year is to grow as a professional, mother and wife. I look forward to always trying to better myself in all aspects of life and hope to make a difference for clients.

Rob Wilson

I have had an amazing year professionally and am hoping to do even better next year. I know this will be no easy feat but I’m up for the challenge! 

On a personal level I’m hoping to buy a house in 2022 and to do some traveling and show my children this amazing world we live in. 

Paul Thompson

Personal Goal: To spend quality time with my loved ones, and be a super husband to my wife and a terrific dad to my extended family – in all 6 children and 2 grandchildren.

Company Goal: To be more successful working hard and achieving company goals with growth.

Kris Hou

My personal goal for 2022 is to continue learning and working hard to be the best I can be at my job. I know Saw.com has a bright future ahead in 2022 and I can not wait!

Mistakes Small Business Owners Make

Starting a small business is so common nowadays. People see small businesses on Instagram, TikTok and other platforms and think, I can do that! It looks easy, but running a small business is anything but that. It takes hard work, dedication and perhaps the most often overlooked factor, time. Unfortunately, small business success does not happen overnight, as it may seem online. 

Saw.com has gone through this process before, and now we are here to help you be successful. Here are common mistakes small business owners make when starting their business. And of course, how you can avoid them!

1. Not Having a Plan

When you are starting your business, it is crucial to plan. Yes, it takes some time. Yes, it can be overwhelming. But, not making plans can hurt your business down the road. 

There is so much to consider when starting a business, and you simply can not rush the process. We suggest making a business plan, marketing plan and financial plan. While doing these, it is crucial to stay organized and take your time. 

Do your research; study competitors and other industries and look at what consumers are interested in. Evaluate your own resources, your connections, experience, your money and planned investments. Create ideas for the future And of course, set goals.

2. Relying on Social Media

In this day in age, many people assume they can start their business using social media platforms. It is free, easy to upload content and accessible to people around the world. However, social media can only take you so far when it comes to running a business. You also lose control over some aspects of your company. Essentially, do not use social media to build your business.

What should you do instead? Buy a domain name and build your company website. Not only will it be easier for customers to find you. But, this will ensure you have full control over your content, traffic and brings credibility to your site.

3. Overspending

We hear too often, “you need to invest money to make money”. Although this is true, there is a balance when starting a small business. You do not need to buy the newest and shiniest of everything when you are starting out. It is possible to find equally reliable equipment and software at a lower price. Additional ways to avoid overspending is not hiring non essential employees and not diving into unnecessary purchases like a huge office space or storefront right off the bat.

To avoid doing these, make a business budget. Decide what is worth investing in, and what is not. 

4. Underspending

The other side of the scale is underspending. Although it is good to save and be aware of your spending, never investing in your company can also hurt you down the road. Again, you need to decide what is worth investing in to make you successful. 

Sometimes new small business owners lack confidence and have a fear of failure. So, make sure you are not underpricing your goods and services. Research competitors in the industry and across other markets. More importantly, have confidence in yourself and your product!

5. Trying to Do it Alone

Many small business owners try to juggle everything alone. This is inefficient and can lead to stress, un organization and end up hurting your business. Make your business stronger by putting together a strong team of people who support you and your vision for your business. When you hire driven, intelligent people in the areas that you need to make stronger, your business will benefit. These employees will become the people you can bounce ideas off of, learn from and trust.

As a business owner, it is also important to learn effective delegation. It is one of the core concepts of management leadership and crucial as you start to manage a team of employees. Being able to assign authority as well as distributing and entrusting work to another person will help your business become more efficient.

6. Not Setting Goals

Going along with creating your business plan, you need to set goals for your business. Goals give you direction while you are starting out, and help you stay on track long after. They also help you measure your success. You can develop steps or checkpoints as you move towards reaching those goals. 

Business goals come in all shapes and sizes. They can be little victories or huge wins. Additionally, they can be daily, monthly or weekly! Do whatever you feel works best for you and your business. However, be smart with your goals. It is important to have a dream, but also try to be realistic. Make sure your goals are measurable and attainable.

Meet The Team: Brooke Hernandez

Brooke Hernandez, also known as “Broker Brooke” has been with Saw.com since the start of the company. She stumbled upon the world of domain names ten years ago, and is now one of the most well-respected domain brokers in the industry.

This week, Brooke Hernandez sat down to discuss her hobbies outside of work, her secret talent and passion for working with companies to help them meet their goals.

Read on to get to know more about our team member, Brooke Hernandez!

1. Name 3 words that best describe you.  

I would describe myself as Attentive, Tenacious and Adventurous. 

2. What are you happiest doing when you are not working? 

I love being outdoors. Anything that involves getting outside and being active is for me! My perfect day is spent at the ocean, playing around on the beach with my family.

3. Do you have skills or talents people do not know about?

I have the gift for gab. In school I was always the one selected to show new students around. I had the ability to make the new students feel welcome and safe. This carried into my adult life, I can talk with anyone and make them comfortable.

I understand people process conversations differently and have their own preferred language of communication. I am good at reading people and figuring out how to make them the most comfortable. Usually this leads me to great, in depth conversations. These social skills have become my own secret talent. Truly, I just love being around different people! I love seeing people open up more and learning about people’s backgrounds and passions. 

4. What would your personal motto be? 

Lets go for it! This is my motto.

You only live once, so there is no reason to not try. It is truly that simple.

Brooke Hernandez

5. How did you get into the domain industry? Why did you join the Saw.com team?

I have been in the domain industry for ten years now. I had no idea this industry even existed. But, this industry is just so fascinating. It is not just buying and selling, there are so many different levels to it.

It has become my passion to work with companies that do not have a clear understanding of how the domain industry works and help them through the process of acquiring the domain for their brand. Seeing new ideas and being able to assist in initial branding and rebranding has become a real priority for me.

Additionally, I love working with companies that are making a difference in the world. To be able to give guidance to these companies on how to acquire a domain name and improve their brand is so rewarding. I love being a part of companies growing and becoming more successful. 

I thought this would be an excellent step in the right direction for my career. With the leadership of Amanda and Jeff, our team has become so strong.
