Green Light Income~A New Blog I am Working On

Hello everyone! I hope you all are having a wonderful day.

Did everyone get a chance to watch the Superbowl last night? Did your team win? How many of you placed bets on their favorite team and won? If so how much did you win and what are you going to do with your winnings? (I couldn’t win something like this even if I was to place a bet because I would feel bad taking peoples money just because I picked the right team. I mean how is that fair? What would I have really done to EARN the money?)

I am not a big football fan if you haven’t picked up on that yet lol, I have never really understood what everyone was so thrilled about but to each their own I guess.

I have been working on a few different things the last few weeks, some of you may know about one of the things I am working on, those of you that are friends with me on Facebook or follow me on  anyway.

I started a new blog called “Green Light Income” and this is a review site about legitimate online and offline income streams and creative business ideas for businessesJP Freelance writing serrvices you can start from home. No more 9-5 for you. I want to turn this blog back into the journal/diary that it started out being so all of the income streams and money making reviews I have on this blog I still stand by 100% BUT I will no longer be posting this type of information on this blog.

I feel like I have failed my readers by selfishly changing the content from personal topics you can relate to to another site about making money online. My new blog; Green Light Income will be different than any other review site about ways to make money. I plan to include every single legitimate way you can earn along with resources needed to get you there. I have tried everything I write about and been paid so they are all verified. I also will be including things close friends of mine are doing or have done and I will let you know that in the post.

If you would like to read about real ways to make money online; from making a little bit to making a full time income please follow my new blog. The topics on GLI will not all be about online income but will also include creative ideas for making money from home offline also.

If you have any questions, comments or recommendations while reading “Green Light Income” PLEASE by all means Comments below the post or send me an email (Make sure you put the blog name or post title in the email subject line to weed out all spam). I will respond to all comments (that are not spam) and all emails within 3 days at most. I give myself 3 days because we all have a life lol and I don’t want to set myself up for failure.

I look forward to connecting with you, helping you and reading all of your comments and thoughts 🙂

PS: I am working on a website (not a free blog) and the system I am using pays you so I will definitely be sharing a post in GLI about it when I am done. I cannot wait for the unveiling! Also if you are interested in having a website built for your business or a personal blog (hosted or free) let me know, my rates are very reasonable and I do all the work myself at this time I DO NOT outsource my work. I also offer writing and editing services (separate businesses of course) for my writing services please read many of my posts on this blog (or others) as this is where my writing samples will most likely come from. I do not feel comfortable sending writing samples that are work I have completed for others as they have utilized the work on their websites or blogs. I prefer you contact me regarding the services I mention above at my GLI email ( margojohnson5@aol.com ) so that I can keep all business related emails together. In the subject line put “website/blog building services” or “writing service” or “editing service” do NOT spam me or I will block your email address.


The Economy is BAD! or is IT??…I think NOT!

The economy is BAD! Or is it? Is it really that bad? People are making a bucketload of money everyday,..so just how bad is the economy and what are our choices BESIDES the 9-5 or 11-7?

Well I will tell you there is one option that I LOVE! I tell everyone to do it and I am telling you right now to do it too!!

JUMP on the BAND WAGON and lets TAKE A RIDE!! The HUGE world inside this tiny screen is waiting for the likes of you!

Oh,..I see,..where do you start? Well I have a few answers to that,..maybe you will like them maybe not BUT they will get your brain rolling and who knows you may just be the next Albert Einstein!!

Here is some comedy BEFORE the rest of this LONG post LOL enjoy!!!


There are many ways to make a legitimate income online and many people think that everything online is a scam so I wanted to let the world know a few facts.

As of 2013 greater than 50% of individuals between the ages of 35 and 64 work online, whether  part-time to supplement their income or full-time running their own business or as a network marketer, making enough if not more than enough money to retire with. This makes complete sense considering that the majority of businesses these days are online.

The employment rates of kids between the ages of 16 and 25 has dropped another 18% and most of these kids do not realize that they have the option to work online. They don’t know about these options because of lack of their parents knowledge and because they are taught that you go to school, go to college and have a career, but many of those raised this way get their degree and can’t even get a job at McDonald’s making a lousy $9 an hour. This $9 an hour wage isn’t enough to live off if you think about the cost of housing, food, utilities, transportation and the cost of their loans they utilized for their education.

I, of course have a solution to this situation, many just don’t want to listen.

For those of you that have a skill like writing or web design you can utilize the Elance Platform, fill out your résumé” and search jobs. Once you find a job you like you can place your bid. If the employer likes your proposal and accepts your bid your hired. You complete the job and are paid within 30 days either via PayPal or check. To Check Elance out CLICK HERE!

There are similiar sites like this like Freelancer, or even Fiverr. Fiverr pays $5 per job or GIG as they call it and after fees ends up being $3.92 per gig. If your able to do a couple of gigs an hour you can make a pretty good income. To read more about Fiverr go to the Fiverr Forums HERE!

There are also several similar sites like Fiverr at Top 20 Sites Like Fiverr . I personally signed up for and used these sites to make money in the beginning but soon found it wasn’t for me.

You can also make your own business, if your creative at all. I have my own freelance writing business called JP Freelance Writing Services. Do you like Social Media, be a social media manager, make a website and advertise your services. A lot of small businesses don’t have an online presence, the know how or the time to do this themselves and you can make great money managing accounts for others. Be creative!

You can also be an affiliate marketer. Find a company or a product that you like, something you are passionate about and feel good about, read up on affiliate marketing and start advertising. Some companies only pay 10% commissions, but other companies like Clickbank; pay upwards of 75% commissions and the best products are the ones with recurring purchases and billing so that your building a residual income. There is Commission Junction that I applied for myself because I am always sharing tools and other marketing products to others so why not make a little money doing it. Also CJ has physical products as we as information products. Honestly you can be an affiliate for anyone; Amazon, Walmart even Google wants affiliates.

Here is an example of a Clickbank Product you could promote, who that uses WordPress wouldn’t want this course! Also this product is a 50% commission,…

Learn To Use WordPress

There are more options but my favorite is Network Marketing.

I love the thought of building a residual income, leveraging my income with the effort of myself and others and the products. Now some companies are seen as ” pyramids” but they are no more a ” pyramid” then the famous McDonald’s,..actually they would be more of a pyramid scheme then most Network Marketing Companies. McDonald’s pays their employees $9 an hour while the owners are making millions,…that’s a true pyramid!

There are a couple of companies I partnered with and my BIG company is North American Power, I have talked about them before so I won’t go into it too much in this post, but they pay a minimum of $5000 in bonuses as you reach different Ranks in the company like manager and senior manager. NAP Saves money on their necessary utility bill and is for the USA only, they also allow people such as you and me to create our own wealth and they growing at an exponential rate,we are currently in 11 states but going to have their footprint in ALL 50 states by the end of 2015 (typo in last post said 2013) so for people like me, who have struggled NAP is going to change lives.

Start Here

I am also with MyFUNLife, which I have not talked about a lot but they are a mobile app company and they are another huge revolutionary company like NAP but in a totally different area.

Everyday Feels Like A Vacation

MyFUNLife helps people save on their travel and vacation expenses and currently have three apps but are going to be growing to include another 9 apps in the areas of Health, Fun, etc..they too are a company that allows you to create your own wealth and neither company requires you to have 100’s of people to make an income either,..5 for NAP and 3 for MFL. Its teaching duplication to your business partners that makes your income increase. Both offer residual income, commission, a way to leverage your income and are free or very cheap and once you get your first pay covers your monthly fee if any at all.

See I LOVE products that help people and companies that LOVE people and BOTH of those companies do just that. They both help people save in different areas of their lives.

Another company that I would love to talk about is one that is literally BLOWING up right now. A perfect company for people such as myself, who LOVE to blog and help other people. This company is called Internet Lifestyle Network.

Internet Lifestyle Network is the Premier Online Business & Entrepreneurial Community. Our ILN University is compiled with educational courses to guide you along your successful entrepreneurial journey. The Internet Lifestyle Network’s Blogging Platform is the most advanced system that is simple enough for the newest user and robust enough for the seasoned gurus.The basic Apprentice with the company gets $20 per person they get signed up per month, so your creating a residual income and your able to make a presence on the internet with the blogs they give you.

Now these are very few companies and options and you could literally just research a anything you love, find a product or service you love, find the company that has the product or service and offers you the best commission plan and promote your heart out. Start your own business as a house sitter and even better be a traveling housesitter, (this may cost a bit) you could join MFL as a free member, get the booking app and book yourself flights and such to anywhere in the world at a ridiculously low rate, charge more because you’re a traveling housesitter and start traveling the world!

Wow that idea just came to me lol,..kind of an odd idea but if you really think about it, it could be an interesting and FUN way to live you life,..bounce from state to state, home to home, make HUGE money and meet amazing people!

Okay so I have rambled enough for today anyway and I may copy and paste this into my NEW blog 🙂

~I Work Hard,..is it not hard enough though?~

I reblogged this because I actually realized that things are not so different now,..well except that there is snow on the ground so we are not putting trees in. LOL. I also do more online in the way of making money. I work with Instant Rewards for one,..but basically it was important for me to re-read this and think about that day. Letting myself see where I was then and where I am now, even though there hasn’t been a huge change there still have been changes. Positive changes 🙂 There are more changes everyday, the biggest change is within myself and how I look at life.
Please enjoy my blog and comment about anything:) Thank you!

Stay at Home Mom Tells All

Today the sun is shining and we are headed to bolducs (a junk yard) to bring back some ferrious metals.

It is one of the ways we make money to feed the children and pay our bills.

On an ad I posted to craigslist a few days ago (see blog post below) I got a response from someone telling me that I wasn’t looking for work hard enough or doing what needs to be done to pay our bills.

The person who made that comment has no idea about how hard I work and what I do to provide for my family.

We go to random houses And Knock on doors trying to sell trees, letting people know we put in privacy hedges and mow lawns, we clean up scrap metal, and tear down buildings.

Our tree hedges we sell for less than most of our competition! We hand dig…

My Journey in the Last Eleven Years Online~

Back in 2003 unemployed and expecting
a little girl…

She was frustrated at her life.

She didn’t know which way to turn.

What to do.

How to provide for her family.

She watched the info-mercials on
the television.

And right then, in the middle of
the night, she knew exactly what she
was going to do to provide for her

She was going to start a business
of her own.

Buying wholesale and selling physical
products through the internet and
marketing online.

After trying and trying for months
on end, about 24 months,..nothing was budging.

No results.

No income.

Wasted effort.

And as you can imagine, even greater
frustration came about.

Jumping from the next big thing to
the next, like a mad-woman going crazy.

And the job market?

Couldn’t a job have solved this problem?

After applying to countless jobs, she
knew that putting in the same effort
into her own business would be a much
better route to take.

But confused and frustrated at the
results, or lack thereof had her wanting
to give up completely.

As someone who is new to being an
entrepreneur and taking charge of your

You’re going to go through some tough

But I’ll tell you, it’ll all be worth
it in the end.

The girl in the story above?

That girl was me
And I have finally figured it out.

The key for me was to go where the
support and money were.

Where people were able to quit their
dreaded J.O.B. and finally be in charge
of their future.

A place where many 4 and 5 figure
earners have been birthed.


Probably the best and easiest place
to start a business nowadays.

It’s something that is honest,
Something genuine,
Something that if you apply yourself and follow proven methods
You will get your results.

I am here and willing to show you this method,
So if you have a few minutes I will introduce you to what I finally have found that works for me AND many many others!

I look forward to talking to you and helping you change your life.

~Raising Money For A Great Cause~

Working without a computer and trying to blog from a smart phone is quite a bit more difficult than I thought it would be. Due to the lack of a computer at this time this post will be very short.

I am trying to raise money for my family, to repair my car, my door and replace my windshield. I am also hoping to raise enough money to replace the money I was supposed to make from a freelance writing job I was supposed to start the day after the Break In and Bombing at my home….I have lost so much. I believe that what goes around comes around and that those who give to my family out of the kindness of their hearts will get that back tenfold.

For those who donate to my campaign there are two prizes being offered. One prize is $60 and the other is $20..if I remember correctly. These prizes come out of the money I raise and go to the two people/families/corporations that donate the two largest amounts.

My family appreciates everything everyone has helped us with at this point. I have gained new friends and learned so much. Thank you everyone.

The link below is to help my family, help can be in the form of sharing my link for me on your social media sites and blogs and also in the form of monetary donations. Again Thank You All!!

Holding Onto Hope (showing link if you could please kindly copy and paste in your sites 🙂


~31 Day Blogging Challenge~ DAY 9

What are my worst habits?

I have had many bad habits throughout my life. When I was in first grade I used to twirl my hair and then chew on it, I bit my nails until I was in my teen’s. I used to curl my bangs in the 80’s style and roll my pant legs and where high tops and scrunchy socks..LOL


My bad habits that I have now are only a few,..at least I think so.

The very worst habit I have, and I can not seem to break is that I am a smoker. I have smoked since I was about 13 years old and I am now 35:( I have watched people I love die from this disgusting habit and yet I still can not seem to quit. I have quit temporarily a few different times and something always happens that I start up again.

My next bad habit is that I have a very hard time saying NO! Even if I am getting a bad deal I still can’t say no. I have tried to be a hard-ass and stick to my guns but I just can’t.

I also have a terrible habit of never putting my wants and needs first. I think this is partially because I am a mom but I know part of it comes from wanting others to be happy, even if it means that I will be miserable. I wonder sometimes if I am the only person in the world that has the tattoo SUCKER on my forehead..LOL!

I love to spend time on the computer, another bad habit, if you ask my children and James it is anyways,..but I am working. Whether it be blogging to get my name out there or advertising myself, or actually writing for a client. James hates it because I have joined so many MLM businesses in the past and been ripped off, so he thinks that the same thing is going to happen with my freelance writing. I assured him this isn’t going to happen and then implemented a solid rule for myself. When I get a new client, or a new job I let them know right away that if the job is under $200 then I require payment UPFRONT VIA PAYPAL OR CASH ONLY, if its over $200 then I require 25% of the total payment UPFRONT VIA PAYPAL OR CASH ONLY!! This was difficult for me to do, but after being ripped off through content mills and clients there I really had no choice but to do something different.

I also have a terrible habit of working with James and busting my tail off,..and getting nothing for it. I do all of our business advertising, talking with the customers, scheduling and billing, then I go out and actually get my hands dirty and do the work right beside him,..only to walk away with NOTHING! And if I ask for any money he comes up with some lame excuse as to why he isn’t paying me, or gives me $80! Like today we made $450.00 and he had a fit and threw $80 at me!! I work beside him everyday and NEVER get anything and the one time he gives me something its an issue. And he is outside running his mouth about me to my children because he thinks he gets to keep all the money WE make and I am supposed to shut up about it.  The truth be known, he treats me like this because he has worked for his father for 15 years and he does all of the work and I mean LITERALLY ALL of it and gets paid $100 a day while his dad gets to keep the difference for the job which is anywhere from $2000 to $5000 per job!!

I guess after reading this I would have to say that my worst habit I have is NOT respecting myself enough to put my foot down and do what is fair to me!


Please join this challenge!!

Questions When

Why is it that when I tell someone that I am a freelance writer they always seem so skeptical and ask me a million questions?  They act as though working from home and writing my fingers off is just a hobby.  They always say, “Oh, that’s nice!  But when will you get a real job?”

Well, um, excuse me, but I am a professional writer, thank you!  I work 42 to 56 hours a week on my writing, and I do get paid (no matter how low that might be).  I see it as my life’s work and calling.  I take it seriously and never give up.  I plan, set goals, and dream of where I’d like to go with my writing.  I study, practice, and read, always searching to hone my craft.  I eat, sleep, and breathe writing (pardon the cliché).  So, what part of I’m a freelance writer…
