1, Themeforest decided to go full time when I got laid off from my old job last January best decision I’ve ever made.

How much hours do you think you put in daily for your TF products?

If I’m not working on a new theme, I usually have 2-3 hours of support per day. If I’m working on a new product on top of that I’ll work anywhere from 8-14 hours in a day.

8 hours isn’t bad. I don’t know if it’s just me but I find it hard to focus one task at a time so it usually takes me longer to do something than it should. I need to get better at that. 8-14 hours a day that’s a lot that could be accomplished.

Seem like the majority of people have about 3 sources of income. Depending on how much your making you should be able to live comfortable. I think that if your a full time freelancer the only way to survive is to have multiple income.

If you want to make a living as an author you should be aiming to sell around 30~ WP themes a week, depending of the country obviously but if you live in europe/usa then thats the minimum number you should be aiming for. Lets suppose worst case scenario of you earning only 50%:

45×25x0.5: thats 562$ a week around 2250$ a month so its not a bad starting salary. If you think about it, its not that hard if you have 2-3 themes :)
That was simply explained I hadn’t even thought of it that way. Making that a month I live in Canada and in Toronto that’s better than working full time and getting paid minimum wage.
Yeah but to achieve your first approval in a WP theme you will have to work full time + your job if you have any. In the last 3 months I used to work 9-5:30, go home, break, and 8-1am. Was it worth it? definitely, I would do it again without a doubt. I’m living in China now until July couse I can, and still earning a good income :)

Are you Chinese?I want to learn how to earn money here….can you help me?

I’m a full time piano teacher and have been for 20 years. Audio Jungle is a hobby and the income is a nice extra bonus. I also get a few pounds here and there from my AdSense account.

Full time job (35 hours per week)
Audio jungle (2-3 hours some days..4-8 hours some weekends)
AdSense (a few hours a week updating my websites)
