Hey guys,

Something I have been discussing with friends recently… how do you all position being a Videohive author on your resume/CV?

Some of us do this part-time, others full-time, and I’m sure everyone has a very unique way of wording this when trying to promote yourself. What’s your take?

Interesting… I’m always battling this thought. Is stock media creation, digital goods, online marketing, customer support & entrepreneurship looked down upon? Isn’t this what we are doing? I don’t put it on my resume right now but I’d like to find a way for it to be valuable (professionally) and to make sense in a chronological context..
