I have, just, passed the 1/2 million mark here on ThemeForest. I’m still sat here thinking just how amazing this journey has been, quite remarkable!

I don’t want to make this a big list of thanks, but, well here we go:

Envato

First and foremost I have to say a big thanks to Envato and all of their team, all across the world. You guys come under a lot of criticism at times (I’ve given my fair-share) but without this wonderful community I wouldn’t of increased my skills, managed to talk my wife in to learning to code and be able to sit together, at home, producing items I love. I still miss Collis’ replies in the forums however ;)

Buyers

Really, without you, none of this happens. Your confidence in buying my items, providing feedback, requesting features and being so awesome in general has made my journey so enjoyable – thank you all so very much. Oh and there’s almost 22,000 of you – WOW!

Community

When I first started here I lived on the forums, no seriously it actually became an issue as it stopped me getting new products out of the door. In the early days (yup I’m coming up for 6 years now) the community was a lot smaller, we all joined in with ideas and help, overtime it’s grown, people have left and new people have arrived – but this is just a reflection of real-life, and goes to show how healthy the system really is, it’s a true online community! I’ve made some awesome friends here at ThemeForest, many of whom have helped me grow my abilities, offered assistance and support – you all know who you are, too many to list – thank you!

Well I could write lots more, but I will spare everyone from that pain :)

Here’s to the next 6 years, and that pesky million dollar amount!

Jonathan and Barb

PS – I just thought of something – there’s so many people looking up at Elite authors and wondering how we got there, what’s the secret sauce, well here we go.. the secret to sales is – hard work! Nothing else, just plain ol’ hard work.

Without a doubt very few people as deserving of this as you guys. Congratulations and thank you both for the great files. Look forward to many more during the trip to $1million.
