I’m 39 but due to my advanced cleansing routine, I could pass for 38 and a half. Maybe a bit less. So I guess I could be classed as ‘very young’. Not entirely sure if I’m single… you’ll have to ask her.
But still… the majority of people can’t make a living just through Envato. It is possible though, so it’s worth a try if anyone has the time to invest in it, but it usually requires one of two things. Outstanding work and/or just lots of work… but usually both.
It’s difficult though… if you’re not working full time at Envato then you won’t have enough money to work just through Envato, so it’s not really possible to do it full time as you need additional money coming in. It’s a bit of a chicken and the egg situation. I did about 80 hours a week from the middle of 2014 so that I could transition from freelancing to making stock full time. Thankfully it paid off.
Now I whip up a few new items every month or so, annoy people in the forums and spend far too much time in the pub and on my PS4… with money rolling in every month to support my inherent laziness. I remember as a small boy, saying that I wanted to be an astronomer, an astronaut or a quantum physicist… when I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I should have said I want to spend too much time at the pub and playing on my PS4, as it’s a pretty sweet gig.
I will be stepping up the work game over the next year though, sales will always tail off slightly if you’re not contributing to your portfolio. Aiming to increase my earnings by 35% which is going to be very difficult.
