Well, it’s Saturday morning here in Australia, and we’ve hit the end of another week, and another month. The year is vanishing, and there’s only two weeks to go before I have a holiday. Woohoo!

I’m typing this at the local McDonalds while I sip a mango smoothie, use their free wifi, and watch my almost-two-year-old play in the playground. Do you ever work outside the office? Where do you go?

There are many factors involved when it comes to being a top author, but one of the big ones is using your time efficiently. This isn’t like a normal job where you can zone out for an hour and still collect the same paycheck. If you’re not working, you’re not making money. On the other hand, if you can do twice as much in the same amount of time, you can make twice as much.

Introduction to the Envato Marketplaces & How to Start Making Passive Income

Envato Marketplaces Introduction

During our recent Chicago meetup, I was able to meet a lot of great people with some serious skills in their respective creative fields. However, there was a strange trend that started to emerge as I talked to more people. It seems that our community typically falls between two categories: those that use the Tuts+ sites and those that use the Marketplaces.

So for those users who are getting trained on our Tuts+ sites, it’s time to showcase your talents on our Marketplaces and begin making some serious passive income.

We start with our Support & Community Manager, Jordan McNamara.

Jeffrey Wins a Bet

Many of you might remember the lowest point in my life. A month ago, after a miserable three-game Scrabble defeat, Allie (my wife in training), forced me to eat a giant spoonful of Vegemite, and then announce it on our company Yammer feed.

But all things change, and revenge is a dish best served cold. After an inspiring five-game winning streak on my part, this time, Allie, per the terms of our bet, had to stand in our central Chattanooga park, and perform a corny punching motion for five minutes straight — all while being watched, particularly by a group of nineteen year old boys, who struggled to contain their laughter.
