Envato definitely comes in handy and makes my work so much easier when I need to tackle bigger projects that involve commercial work because the wide variety of video templates that are available are super easy to use.

As soon as I became an author on Envato, I quickly had some success and started to see revenue coming in, it was apparent very quickly that I did not need to keep my regular job. So I started my own company...it gave me a lot of freedom to do what I want and work for myself. The idea that my success is driven by my own ideas, having that control is a really nice side effect of working for yourself.

Envato Elements is one of those platforms that I log onto on a daily basis sometimes even when I don't need to design anything. I get visual inspiration and feel empowered having this library of resources to make our ideas come to life.

The benefits of being at Envato are that you get more eyeballs on your work, people get to see what you can do. I've seen people use my templates for commercials, corporate videos, video greetings for customers...pretty much anything you can think of.
