Hey everyone! I recently chatted with Dan Michael to ask him a few questions about his work as the Envato Elite Program Manager. It’s a really interesting interview, for anyone who wants to hear about how Dan got involved with Envato, and to learn more about his role.

We really do try to put Community at the heart of everything we do and the Elite program was devised then, to celebrate how successful our authors were becoming. This was 2011 and I remember Collis telling me when I started that he never expected to be welcoming many people to the Power Elite club ($1,000,000 in total sales). Today, there are over 20 authors who have eclipsed that mark.

Awesome job Sam, this would be getting more comments but currently there’s a comment black hole at the top of the forums!

Keep it up :)
