For many people active in the domain investment space, domain investing is not a full time job. Bob Olea is a California-based domain investor who recently co-founded a web development business called imPowered. In addition to this, Bob also spends his time piloting commercial aircraft for United Airlines.
Yesterday, United Airlines final Boeing 747 flight took off from San Francisco to Honolulu. For the past several weeks, United was flying its 747 aircraft in something of a farewell tour. On its last flight to Washington DC’s Dulles Airport, Bob Olea was the pilot. The flight made the news in the local NBC news affiliate station, and Bob was also interviewed on WJLA.
It is always fun to learn about the “real jobs” of people who invest in domain names as a profitable side gig or a fun hobby. Bob attends domain investing conferences, and I have had the pleasure of spending time with Bob over the years. It would be fun to fly on an aircraft piloted by Bob someday. Perhaps on my next cross country flight on United!
