It will come as no surprise to most of you that my first “A” list company is RookMedia.net. They may seem like the new kids on the block but they are far from it. From their website:

Rook Media is a collection of some of the most experienced domain monetization specialists in the industry coming together with one purpose: to make its customers more money.

With over 55 years of combined experience in the management and sales level of 4 different domain monetization providers, there’s no team in the industry that knows more about making money with domains.

While Rook was founded in 2011, the team already started forming years ago. Most everyone met in 2005 while working at a small internet startup called Sedo. The team left in 2006 to help found NameDrive. You’d think two parking companies in one lifetime would be enough, but you’d be wrong.

adamAdam Strong, There’s enough good to say about him that I could write a book. Of course he meets all my main criteria outlined in my first “A” List post.  All that and more!

I first met Adam way back in 1999 in either the Great Domains chat or Afternic chat. I can’t recall which one. We were both members of Ricks forum until 2007 when I opened my own. He is a well respected and active member of my forum to this day.

Even as a young man in his twenties, you could tell Adam was going places. He was always polite and friendly. He stayed out of the drama and built relationships that last to this day. He stayed focused.

Adam has been one of my “Go To” people and I have had occasion to be his 🙂 Whether it be personal or business, your conversation goes into the vault of his mind and never comes out.

I tried to lay out Adams history here myself and realized that his story is so awe inspiring and inspirational that I needed his help to do it justice.  He’s a very humble man and rarely speaks of himself so I am honored to introduce to you my friend and colleague, Adam Strong, as told in his own words:
