The marketplace (and all it’s badge changes) updates around 10 a.m. here in central Indiana. Ten minutes before the update, I sold my 5,000th dollar!

I really do enjoy reaching these achievements alongside you, my colleagues. I think colleague is the right word. We are all on the same team. As you grow, the marketplace grows, I grow… We experience growth and success together. I need you to sell in order to do well. You need others to sell…

I’ve been here since December and for a while questioned if I would even make black paw in my first year. I feel fortunate to have done it. What I didn’t foresee what meeting all you wonderful people. And, yes, some of you I have met face-to-face. It happens.

I would say don’t be afraid to share your experiences and milestones. Get involved in this community. Things begin to happen because of these marketplaces. I’ve met a buyer of mine in the last year which led to them investing some money into better equipment and MIDI libraries for me and working alongside their clients.

I’m fortunate to be here. You guys have made me feel welcome. Keep doing that for other newbies and have patience with the newbie questions. I sure had them and I’m sure you did too.

However, now I am personally deciding to refrain from my own milestone threads until SILVER PAW ! Boy, that’ll be cool to see. :)

Thanks for reading and caring,
Phil
