Some awesome stories on here, here is my less aweosme one :P

I am a 19 year old first year electrician working in Sydney Australia. As an apprentice my wages are pretty bad but by adding just 2 files to themeforest I have managed to earn another $50-$100 a week from file sales which is pretty damn awesome.

Thanks envato!

I found Flashden in August 2007 ; I’ve spent a lot of money here for my clients and projects. I owned 2 companies since 2002 and was making decent money to live well. Few months ago, my friend Danny (DDstudios) and I were chatting over MSN and he ask me to try ThemeForest. He said my skill was excellent and there’s a lot of money for me on this marketplace. I was not sure about this idea, no time at all, I had a lot of projects to do, a lot of phone’s call and email and almost no sleep!

Few days later I saw a template of DDstudios and I was surprised by the sales he did on it. Each days I was looking his template’s sales growing up very fast. So, I started a quick layout, called “Design Agency”, took me around 4 days of works and submitted it to ThemeForest.

One week later, I sold my 2 company’s shares to my partners, sold my clients, closed one of my business website, closed my company cell phone (I broke the contract, cost me 400$), rejected all new projects and I’m now working full time for Envato.

Already, I make almost the same money than before (Around 150$ to 225$ per day and I expect more in few weeks) ; I sleep, I have long weed-end, I have time for my family, my girlfriend, I play Modern of Warfare 2 and I’m HAPPY . No stress.

Thanks to Envato, hope this business will live forever!

Cheers!

The result of your actions are that now , we all can follow our dream. You gave us a wonderfull playground where we can learn , teach , build and be our own boss. I see the envato marketplace like a big big building with room for everybody who want to open their little store and showcase their little hand-crafted product. The only limit there is now is the one that we impose ourselves. Whoever work hard can succeed in this company and it’s awesome. Thanks for that , I really appreciate it.

@DDStudios

This is very well put. There is in theory an endless amount of money that could be earned as long has someone puts in the hard work and effort they will be successful here. Envato has essentially created a world where there are no limits. That is why I love Envato.

There is a lot of work ahead of me but thanks to Envato that work will be totally worth it.
