I never had a job :|
Not even a paper round?!

What’s a paper round? :)

I’ve started working on Envato & various freelance gigs from high school, continued working through college and now i’m full time here. Don’t take too much freelance either..

You’re lucky, good place in good time. :-)

When did you decide to quit your job and become a full time author? And how do you deal with relatives asking, “when do you plan to find a real job?”

I was working a full-time job, doing support for an elite author and producing my own items as well.

I decided to quit when I knew for definite that I had my wage covered, not a second before. When I was happy that I had enough income from Envato I made the move :)

As for relatives asking when I’ll get a proper job, they all know how hard I work, and the income I bring in for my family, no-one has ever asked me this question because of that :)

thanks for your input man! i do have a full time job now, its been 7yrs and im still doing the same stuff, the problem with a job, i am just converting my time with money.. unlike here in envato, its a passive income.. job = work-earn; work-earn while in envato=work-work-earn-earn 100xxxx

Hi All! I’m kind of a newbie in this type of marketplace, i would just like to ask especially for the authors that are using envato as their main income to survive.

Pre, pinoy talaga. Satin lang may nagtatanong na kamag-anak kung kailan tayo magkakaroon ng full-time na trabaho. Ayaw nilang maniwala na makakabuhay ka ng pamilya working from home :)

I started to work only with Envato when my themeforest earn was more of my full work in my web agency. I pursued the two jobs at the same time for 6 months and then I decided to dedicate myself to ThemeForest. Thanks Envato for this opportunity :)
