I also done so much homework on this since I was planning to move to some other country. If you have other resources including envato income and can earn $5k than you can survive in Australia. Of Course thr visa policy etc wont let you in for long
You can try other countries like Thailand/Dubai/India/Indonesia/Nepal/Sri Lanka
Above all countries are good and cheap. If you do some research, and find appropriate resources than you will need $500-$700/month to survive in above countries except dubai. Dubai is more expensive but very hot in summer.
India you will find many places to and different weathers so you can shuffle between cities. versatile place and people in India. if you get the basic idea of living, You can survive in 300-500 dollars. Sri Lanka is also a very nice place if you like beaches etc. people are very friendly thr. one of my friend from ukraine is living thr for 5 months and he is enjoying.
Thailand is also very nice place with beaches all around. language is a problem but I have seen many foreigners living thr
If you need much more clean countries than look into singapore/malaysia. Very nice places but expensive too.
Think wisely, its not easy to live in other country. different culture and lot of other law issues based on specific countries.
Also important thing that you should always have some backup plan in case of worse situation so you can handle that time else you will be in a boat with alot of holes and no land near by.
Writing a proper support policy is not going to help. Rating system is again under controversy. 1 out 100 customer ask to do so many things after buying a template. They even dont understand that how much they are getting in low price.
I had this experience when one customer purchased the item and after asking new changes, he said my theme is not good in look and have issues in frontend. I told him that we have live preview before you purchase item thn how you can say like this now. He rated me 3star and thn I made some new changes for him and he given 5 and after a week time, he rated me 1 star
I hope envato staff is also looking into this matter and will come up with solution in newyear
1. Elite badge and accessories which envato send. 2. Featured author 3. A bigger and better team
what does it mean by first money? for me it was only few dollars so I bought a burger.
Becoming a fulltime author is a good idea overall when you see your Themeforest tree grow rapidly. Dont even think to quit your job if you earn only started 100-300 dollars a month. Its nothing to spend your life.
Always keep your focus on good work and save money as a backup. If other people started loving your items than it means you are going into a correct direction. Once you started earning good than also wait for few more months and see your earnings graph. if its stable or growing than its time to move to full time.
Apart from this, always keep a backup work option, dont rely on single source like themeforest, life is so uncertain so if you have other freelance option, keep going with other time to time so you are everywhere. If anything worse happen here, you still have things to step up.
Thanks to all, I also wanted to let everyone know that we are extending our team and if anyone wanted to work with us on our designs, Please let me know. I always have designs to work on
I am looking for some developers to join a project to develop an open source digital signage. The work is primarily consisted on CMS potion while we create the various clients for Windows and various Linux Distros and Android. A lot of this work is going to be primarily pasting together a lot of open source items with the most custom code being is interwining the various components to work together. We have the various specs all planned out. As far as payment goes there are two options, payment upon project completion and testing that it works correctly or higher payment in residuals. We have some customers who already backed the project. If anyone is interested in this can you kindly respond on here?
