After working 2 years as freelancer besides my day job it has become to much work to combine these two things. So I quited my day job to give fulltime freelancing a try.

I hope this way I can give better support for my items on the marketplaces and finally take some time to finish some of the projects I was working on.

Without Envato this decision would have been a lot harder to take. So I want to thank Envato and all buyers of my items to give me this opportunity.

Indeed, it’s really hard to cope up with more than two things at once, specially in freelancing. Wishing you all the best for the future and happy sales. :)

Congratulations!

This is something I eventually want to do too, but the risk is too high at the moment. Envato offer such a great safety net with this marketplace though, so I am hoping to do a similar thing over time. The decision is always going to be so much easier when you know that whatever happens you’ll always have a passive income from the marketplaces.

Good luck with sales and your various projects! :)

I’ve been hesitating for months but after my first upload to ThemeForest I’m convinced that freelancing is a good choice.

Good luck to all who made the same decision :)
