My name is Margo Johnson, I am a mother of three wonderful children ages 14, 12 and 10 and I am engaged to the most wonderfully supportive man.
I am a native Vermonter and I would have to say I love it here, except for the fact that two days ago we had barely any snow left and it was as if we were headed into mud season. Now, today, we have a little over a foot of fresh snow. It looks like the first snow fall of winter all over again. Pretty, but sad. I was ready for the smell of spring in the air and fresh cut grass.
I have been searching online for about a year now, for ways to make money. And I have, made money I mean, a little here, a little there, But far from enough to even come close to paying my bills, much less call it an income,..lol.
During my year online I came across a lot different opportunities, some promised me 'riches overnight', others said that I could start earning 'Ten minutes from now' and still others said I would be making '$20 to $80 over and over again all day long on auto pilot while doing no work'.
I also came across some opportunities that were about 80% honest, telling me I would have to work for it, but leaving out the fact that after my initial investment of $47 or $97 or even $197, in order to start making money I would need to invest another $297 or some other crazy amount to get what I needed to LEARN to understand what I NEEDED to do, so that I could implement it to make the money. (I hope that's not too confusing..LOL)
Many times I came across 'opportunities', and I use that word lightly, that left out more then what they gave me. I had no idea of how to make the money. I heard things about SEO, Article Marketing, Google Adsense, Social Media, uplines, downlines, MLM and network marketing, but I had no idea what any of this really was. No one explained any of it to me.
I ended up spending $100's of dollars on things that never worked. I have over $1000's worth of e-books, software and programs on my computer that most of them I have never used, or after buying them I was told I needed a license number for them and never received it.
During all of this, I started writing. Blogs and reviews became an every day 'job' in themselves.
About three weeks ago I had posted a talent for sale on Apsense, a business social media platform. A connection of mine bought my talent, "Write an Article, topic of your choice". After I completed the job for him, he commented and said "Margo writes beautifully, and did an amazing job, she doesn't charge as much as she should. I recommend that everyone in our Apsense family use her services". From that point on, I decided that I was going to find a way to make money online, as a writer!
I have always had a passion for writing, I have always been told I was great at it. So that's it, I am now starting my own freelance writing business. What better way is there to earn money? I am doing what I am good at and better yet I am doing something I LOVE!
Since the sale of that first article, I sold another to that gentleman, got hired for three jobs on Elance, one of which was an 1800 word article, another is still in progress but I have already wrote six articles, 500 words each for the client and she still has about ten more for me to write, and the third job I got hired for is 10 pages, 500 words each, for $10 a page. That job starts once I have completed the one in progress.
I also have three articles published on SelfGrowth.com! I am so excited. This is just the beginning and my career is taking off.
I hope to be able to both educate and enlighten you through my posts. I hope to also keep them entertaining. I promise to keep them 100% honest and factual. I will make it my point to let you know different aspects of opportunities that the people trying to get you to become a part of, will tend to leave out.
I am going to say that I do not think people lie on purpose, for the most part anyway, but I do believe that they leave things out because they are afraid you won't join them. I believe though that if they want others to join, if they are honest, there is a better chance that if you join. You will also stay at it and in most cases you will become successful with it, and in turn that helps with their success. So, I guess I am saying, if they want success, they need to be upfront and honest.
I would appreciate it if you have any questions or comments if you leave them. I promise I will get back to you.
If you have something to say, that you don't want to post publicly feel free to email me.
Also I am looking to take on new clients all the time, so if you are looking for content for your website or blog, need help writing an e-book, want a book, article or website proofread or edited please send me an email with what you need. I am going to be posting links to some of my work below. So review them and if you are still considering hiring me, I will reply to your email and we can either hash it out via email or we can have a phone conversation to work out the details.
