Your Say: What do you carry in your purse or wallet?

Wallet by Sean T Evans

We want to hear from you. Each week we give you a chance to share your thoughts, opinions and ideas. Have your say!

When Bill Gates was first braining the handheld PC, he was in the habit of getting people to empty their pockets and wallets to get into his head what people need to get handy. What about you? What do you carry in your purse or wallet?


Video: Nigel Marsh on Work-life Balance

I love Ted Talks. They really are ideas worth spreading. Recently FreelanceSwitch introduced me to this one.

This week we look at Nigel Marsh: How to make work-life balance work by Nigel Marsh. In this video he lays out an ideal day balanced between family time, personal time and productivity — and offers some stirring encouragement to make it happen.

Do you need to evaluate your work-life balance? What did you get out of the video?


Your Thoughts on Meetup 2012

Posted: 06 Sep 2011 08:24 PM PDT

Hey everyone!

We have been discussing a possible get together for the Envato community. The Meetup is a huge highlight on the Envato calendar, providing an opportunity to get together, discuss any important matters and celebrate your hard work. Last year the team traveled to Chicago for the first ever Envato Meetup (follow the above links). To no ones surprise, it was a huge success, which is why we want to do it all over again!

This year the tentative destination is……Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia!

Fun facts about Malaysia

Internet usage in Malaysia has grown a staggering rate over the past decade. Malaysia is ranked seventh in Asia with a total of 9.4 million Internet users.

At 1,483ft the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur are the tallest twin structures in the world!

Tropical fruit is part of the staple diet in Malaysia, the famed Durian is a local favourite. It’s tagline?

Smell like toilet, taste like dream!

Despite being known for its modern cityscape, Malaysia is home to some of the most beautiful islands…tropical jaunt anyone?

A place for a swim

For those unable to make it, we are considering live streaming the event and you will be encouraged to tweet us questions!

With the plans tentative, now is a great time for your feedback. Come on, you know you want to! Fill out our 2012 Meetup Survey.


Congratulations to the Winners of AudioJungle’s TRAX Contest

Posted: 06 Sep 2011 06:44 PM PDT

AudioJungle’s TRAX category allows you to purchase music with a personal license for just $2. This allows you to inexpensively download the tracks for your own personal listening pleasure – whether at home, at work, in the car, or basically anywhere and everywhere your MP3 player goes!

To celebrate the launch, we ran a competition which was basically a race to make the most sales. The competition has now finished, and we’re ready to announce the winners!

But before we announce the winners, here’s a huge thank you from marketplace manager Scott Wills:

Thank you so much to everyone who participated in our TRAX contest by uploading and selling your music in our brand new TRAX category that we launched a couple of months ago. The response has been fantastic and the TRAX library has already surpassed 200 items in such a short period of time!

Scott recently announced the winners on the AudioJungle forum. Congratulations! Here they are:

Grand PrizeAuthor with most TRAX sales overall

Congratulations to timmcmorris! Tim uploaded several tracks, promoted his TRAX submissions inside and outside the Envato marketplace network and his efforts paid off!

Tim also technically won the runner-up prize too with most sales for an individual item with the track Living It Happy but as per the contest rules, any author achieving this is only eligible for the Grand Prize.

Tim wins $1,000 "cash" (payable via PayPal), a homepage feature of his AudioJungle portfolio and the rare "Won a Competition" badge! Well done, Tim, we'll be in touch very soon with prize information!

Runner-up PrizeAuthor of the individual TRAX item with most sales

Congratulations to adamjamescuz! Adam's Dubstep track Dark Wobble sold the most times during the contest period.

Because Adam lives outside of North America as per the competition terms and conditions, he will receive $499 "cash" (payable via PayPal) in lieu of an iPad 2. He also wins a "Won a Competition" badge!

Great job, Adam, we'll be in touch very soon with prize information!

Bonus PrizeAuthors of the Top 20 best-selling TRAX items

As promised, we've assembled the Top 20 best-selling TRAX items and will be featuring this collection on the home page for the next four weeks. Well done to everyone who made the Top 20!

Thanks again to everyone who participated, enjoy all the outstanding music, and enjoy the awesome prizes if you're one of our winners!
