Video only here but signs of things improving after traditionally slow Jan / Feb / Mar. No freak outs this year though, given that this time last year everything just crashed suddenly and I thought everything was falling apart. Thankfully everything recovered nicely and the year ended up good. So far 2017 has exceed last year so fingers crossed all continues well.

However I'm under no illusions that this is a safe and steady industry to be a part of with wild swings up and down and agencies making major decisions with affect our livelihoods at a whim. It's only getting harder!

This is my full time job with no other sources of income.

Definitely not safe and steady, but fun and full of freedom.  :D You just have to make sure that the worst months are at a comfortable level and the best months are a nice bonus.

It's so easy to get used to big numbers when they occur, but I find it better to think of them as bonus months and aim to keep the lowest level high enough.

After 6 months of steadily declining sales, February was pretty decent and March appears pretty good so far too.
Anyone else experiencing this?

FAKE NEWS!

You are resurrecting really old threads. Sales threads happen every month. Why wouldnt you post in last months May thread, instead of something from 2017?

It's something weird which often happens when newbies arrive on the forum. It was explained once, but I can't remember the details.

Yes, I have seen the explanation, too, but dont remember. But still. I suppose we all missed the dates and posted on old threads when we were noobs too.  :-\

They don't get full rights in the forum until they've made something like 10 comments. For example if they want their links to be clickable etc.

BINGO!!! There's the answer.

I thought it was the "related topics" at the bottom after the thread - If you just click on those without looking at the dates you could easily end up reading an old old thread and then commenting on it.

Yup! Especially when last posts are from active members, it is easy to confuse and consider that this was a live thread.
