The website and emails are written almost exclusively by me, Kim, wife and mother of three.
Five Green Lizards was started as a way to document our family’s journey making money online. We are a family of five, currently living in the Phoenix, Arizona metro area. The website name reflects the number in our family (FIVE), that we are trying to make money (GREEN), and that we live in a desert climate (like LIZARDS).
The funny story behind that domain name is that I originally bought it after reading some step by step “make money online” ebook that promised to make us thousands simply by “copying and pasting” ads online. The ebook author instructed to buy a domain name that was so crazy, yet specific, that people would remember it. The author gave examples like “twenty purple elephants” and “two fat cows” or something like that. I choose “five green lizards”. I thought it was simple enough that people could remember it, and the words were easy enough that misspellings wouldn’t be too much of a problem.
That “make money online ebook” was one of my first failed attempts at making money online. But I kept the domain name. The lesson learned is that there are no “easy” ways to make money online. It takes real work!
After that, I tried numerous different ways to make money online, but could never really make any headway. But I kept trying, until I found a few ways to make some money that I enjoyed doing. After I had some success, I wanted to help others have success too. I wanted others to be able to avoid the pitfalls and have some direction in their journey.
This website was born out of the desire to share with others the things I’m doing that are working, and also what’s not. I certainly don’t know everything there is to know about making money online, in fact, most days I still feel like I don’t know what the heck I’m doing, even though I’m successfully making a full time income online now.
I no longer share our specific online earnings amounts, but I still document what we are doing and how we are doing it, in the hopes that others can duplicate our success. I love to learn new things, and I’d like to share what I know with you.
I hope that our website is an inspiration to you and that it has valuable tips and tools for your online business.
