How to find a nice domain name

This article is not written for Elon Musk or Seth Godin 

I am supposing you are a nice person with some necessary bad qualities and a beginner like I was sometimes back, now I am starter.... and a bad fellow... urghhh ....

Are you looking to take your business online? Or you have a business and want to sell on internet and looking to make your first website.
You already have a thought and may be list of very nice domain names that sound cool. Suddenly you see a competitor in Bill Gates. That's exciting.
Wait a minute, before taking a very nice hot and cool domain name. You mean business and more business through internet.
What is that exciting name, is it associates with you? I bet it's not. You are betting for a dot com with that honorable word in the oxford pocket dictionary.
What is plan of selling, how you going to tell people that they can order for your product online?
You will start telling right? First in person I suppose. And you will expect them to remember you, your services and products, your website name and that you sell online too.
Sorry being honest, if you tell one such a thing, why I will remember you? Are you the only person selling.
I will never trouble me to remember if you are not the only doctor on the planet for health check. I won't give a shit.
Attach your business name with your name. Make yourself a brand instead of hiding in the bushes or trying to fly without enough of fuel in the tank. Your identity is like a fuel to your business.
Your Identity is not hundred but thousand times better for your business specially if you are beginner.
 Instead of going for a flashy dot shit go for something like yourname.tld or yournameplusbusinessdottld.
That will be easy for your neighbors and customers to remember.
In real life how many people call you by your name in Identity Card? Perhaps very few.
How your parents call you?
How your friends call you?
How they remember you?
What they say over phone? Hey johnny wassup or they say hey mr david john walker its long gone we never talked can you spare sometime time.
If people like you call as Johnny they will like to remember your business with you and not separate. 
They will like to order from a
johncleanmyhome.tld
johneditmywork.tld

Names in this article are used for explanation purpose only and has no relation with any real human. I would love chimps though.

What about search engine?

You want to rank on top for top egg bakers in Wayanad.
Do you want your customer from Wisconsin?

Search engine don't like a talking Toronto eyeing Japan type domain. Go simple and search engine will tell people near you who is the best baker.

Looking for a (Niceeeee) domain name? Give me a shout out.

Learn to read

Do not read to learn. Kids go school for reading and comeback exhausted. In many higher education institutions Ph.D candidates read and compile thesis based on how much they have learnt based from reading over say 3 or 5 years or may be more sometime with grant or without grant. Often I have seen one trend the people who impress you own many books, think any name that come to your mind and check what the person read. You will find a coal business person may have books on literature. A mathematics professor may have books of archeology. Talk to them. Often you will find the person attached with a certain profession can only speak or debate around that area only. Or discuss something random and you will be taken that certain area of work or passion. Consider sports. Cricket.

No matter how many money making classes yo
