Hi all, thank you for reading this.
I would first like to thank Audio Jungle for existing.
I love this community and people here, its awesome how fast I get a reply to my questions and whatnot.
Thank you all.

Now, I would like to tell you my story. Story behind my first sale.
See, here, where I live, its hard to get a job.To put it simply, government is taking(stealing) all the money they can get their hands on.
And whats worse, my family, my mom, had to raise me and my sister.
Father ran away long time ago.(I would like to quote Pac on this one “No love from my daddy cause the coward wasn’t there”)
See, my mom has a job but they don’t pay enough.(For 3 of us)So its hard.So now that I am 19 years old, I have to figure out a way to get some money to support my family, so we can live normal life.
Luckily for me, I love music, so I started making hip hop beats,and when I found out about this website, I wanted to give it a try,(Because,see,no one believes in me, my mom and sister just keep attacking me with “Go get a job”, but they know its hard.)
So to cut it short,I uploaded one of my beats here,and it got approved.I was happy in a mother%^&$.(Sorry I can’t put it other way).
2-3 days later, I log in.I take a look in the upper right corner…HOLY!
I can’t pick words to describe how I felt.One of THE MOST,HAPPIEST moments that I experienced in a long time.
It makes you really think.
I mean, one sale, because of that one sale I was allowed to be happy for a whole freaking day.
All those hours,days and nights,weeks,months I spent on learning how to produce payed off.
I just sat back, chilled.No stress, no pressure, no worries.I still couldn’t believe what just happened.
I loved that feeling.So I wanted to feel like that again and again.
But I didn’t want to get greedy, so I decided that, first 100$ I make, I will give to charity.

Thats it, that would be a short story behind my first sale and how it felt.

Again thank you for reading and have a nice day.
I would just like to add, that, this is not any attempt to make you feel sorry for me and by my music(or anything like that), no ! I simply wanted to share this story with you guys, and to let you know that I am thankful.

hi thesaka24,

Congrats for your 2 sales now… ;)

Some people believe that, “The MORE you give the MORE you GET!”... Of course you will not give 100% of your money for charity, but 2.5% is minimum… :)

i have the same feeling when i uploaded my first item. i never thought someone would really purchased and gets interested with it. i know this marketplace got a lot of elite artist, and its a global creative warfare.. i remember i keep refreshing my browser every 5mins just to check if someone buy.

until now, for me, every single SALE is a blessing in many ways. its not just about the money you got, but also, people believe in your art, in your product.. my first SALE was the one that gets me going everyday and try hard to create more. :)

i am even more proud to showcase my items here in Envato than my works in my workplace, coz my output in my workplace involves a lot of people; boss, clients, to trying to be creative office-mates.

WoW you guys are awesome, thank you for support and kind words !
@PrimaThemes Yes ! I believe in that 100%, that’s why I don’t sweat about spending or giving money at all, it doesn’t mean anything to me, but since I have this situation, I have to earn it. I know I have these financial problems but that won’t stop me from doing what I feel is right.
But as soon as I get a job, I will donate all of my money that I earn here to charity.
@insane23rd Exactly !
