I dislike not been employed from time to time. I really do miss working in a team of developers in a fancy office with lunch breaks, deadlines, customer meetings and general social stuff. I’ve thought about getting a job again just so I can have that social aspect back.

Man, by the time you are in the expected team/environment, you will probably feel why nothing works in the dreamed way, or even worse if you forget about the fact that you wished that to happen; learn the life science! :D

Envato Authors have to do their own tax.

What? Do Envato authors need to pay taxes for the money they make here?

In Australia you do, it is no different from a real job….

I have a company, so all Envato income goes via the company first, so taxes are all done as part of that.

I don’t know if it differs on any other countries but this is certainly a taxable income.

btw, on topic:

Regular job guy says: “Sorry, I will try but there is no chance to get leave on that day”.

Author thinks on same situation: “Damn, because of you I have to postpone the upload to next week” :P

We all have some chains around us , anybody in this planet has them…
But as great novelist Nikos Kazantzakis once said , at least our chains are more long than “regularly employed” ones.

My opinion,make a team of friend to work with on envato ,every one what they make they sale ,but the idea of a team will be used to come up with design ideas and sharing stocks with others seems fun for me. XD And so the being lonely idea will be solved and it will be like working as an eployed person but more fun and with a lot of more advantages,but some rules will be needed.
