A bittersweet Level 8 Badge and a time to be grateful.

Yay, I guess! Made it to Level 8! :confetti_ball:

I made a quick math and at the current pace I’ll be Level 9 when I’m 107 so let’s call this a wrap. It’s not news at all I’m quite dissapointed with the way things are in stock music, but this time gratitude prevails.

My brief story: I joined AJ around 2016 with a handful of tracks and at 2017, bam, I lost my day job. Envato literally saved my life; I wouldn’t have been able to make a living transitioning from my 9-to-5 at the production house I was working at to full stock freelancing, which is now my main source of income. But, man, it took a bunch of time and effort to build a decent client book.

Envato and only Envato gave me the possibility to keep doing what I love without having the urge to jump into the first job I could manage to grab. Now I still make a decent bonus and just recently discovered the stream of ContentId which is awesome. It all adds up.

I really want to thank all the community in the first place; some very dear and very helpful colleagues that helped me countless times, too numerous to mention but you know who you are guys. I want to thank @collis , @BenLeong , @KingDog and all the Envato team who always gave me support when I really needed it.

I wish the new generation of authors and everyone here the very best.

Over and out!

Congratulations and thanks for all you’ve done for the community. Having you experience and expertise is a great asset.

BTW, I’ll be 107 before I reach that 70% positive threshold and have more than 10 tracks, so don’t feel bad :joy::joy:
