    So I thought I would finally start a journey too. Its probably different than most journeys posted here, but I needed a place that would hold me accountable and I dont waste more time procrastinating and can focus on one thing I know makes me money and has made me money.

    Im a level 5 author on themeforest, without any rejections so far and 4 items for sale. Usually I would obsess over a project spend a couple of months completely focused on it and by the end of it I loose the fire. Im sure this "loosing the fire" thing happens to alot of people, it would be nice to know how you guys deal with it?

    Coming back to the point - I started developing an item 5 months back, first 3 months I was fully focused, but past couple of months Iv been dragging my feet and grudging to put time into finishing what I started.
    The item is 98% complete and Im half way through documentation now. So I decided to post this journey so I can stop lazying around. To be honest I switched to setting up a niche site a month back and to date I have made 36 dollars. - maybe this is for another journey .

    Whats the sitch right now

    So the template is 98% finished, over 250 pages, dozens of elements etc. I am aiming to finish it this month (like the past 2 months). Maybe If you guys can push me I can have it finished this week. On top of that it will take 15 - 20 days for the item to be accepted * given that it is accepted. Otherwise the journey fails.

    So Im looking at march 15th to be the go live date and by June Im hoping to have banked 15k that roughly equates to 900 sales give or take. Thanks for reading and hoping for people to push me to finish this and not waste time on the next get rich quick method.

    Good luck buddy. You're not the only one who "loses the fire."

    Starting a journey thread or maintaining a journal has worked well for me (most of the time.)

    Go for it dude.
    Since you are a designer and all, I have a 2 page website that I'm looking to get done, I have all the content and stuff. If you are looking for a small bit of funds between now and your eminent success just PM me :)

    Very unique to see a theme journey.

    I have one question. How much are you selling the theme for? Because if it takes 900 sales then you are only getting about $17 from each sale after themeforest fees?

    Best of luck, and I hope you hit your goal.

    I think Im going to set the price at 19 dollars and im adding an estimate of client work i will get out of it to reach 15k. However as i said give or take 900 it will most likely have to be a little higher than 900 sales

    Good luck on the journey. Always wanted to get into wordpress theme development but never found the right direction to learn.
