Also diversify your portfolio. Never put all of your eggs into one basket, in this case, Envato. You need to figure out multiple income sources so that if any one of those fails, the other ones can keep you sustained.
Especially when dealing with internet based income, nothing is set in stone. Websites come and go, trends move quickly, and your audience is ever changing. The more versatility that you can bring into your business plan, the better your odds are of succeeding.
Ok ok, so maybe I meant to post a 25 sales thread, and somehow put 100,000. It happens!

This is where the world today is going. This is what humans are being fed with, that true success is to have a porsche, big house, a lot of money… and you will be happy. In USA, one of the highest suicide rates are amongst financially rich people.
