About Me

This is MEHi, my names Roderick, but on the internet, I usually go by my middle name, “Nathaniell”.

I’m an internet marketer, and One More Cup of Coffee is a website where I teach people how to start an online business and make money from home.

I wasn’t always an internet marketer; in fact, I’ve done quite a few different jobs over the years.

But internet marketing was the career path that ‘clicked’ for me, mostly because I could do it from the comfort of my own home and according to my own schedule.

But let’s start a bit further back; if you’re going to get to know me, you should know a bit about where I’m from and what I’ve done.

I grew up in California, but left soon after graduating high school to travel in Europe. I was completely bored in the US and wanted to see the world. At the time, I had a friend living in Prague, so used her house as my “home base” between trips. When I needed money or had some down-time, I freelanced as an English teacher.

Eventually I landed a pretty sweet job as a kindergarten teacher, so I was officially getting paid to play duck-duck-goose and hide-and-seek for a few hours a day.

After a few years doing that, I broadened my horizons and set my sights on China. I wanted to learn Mandarin and start the next chapter in my travels: Asia.

So that’s just what I did.

Travel The World

China was wild. I made tons of friends, traveled all over the country, and became fluent in Mandarin.

But after being in China for a while, I began thinking about my future. It had been ten years since I left the US. I was having a blast traveling, but I was still changing jobs every couple of years, working in places without any job security, for wages that made saving any money very difficult.


I needed a plan.

Make Money OnlineI can’t really remember how the idea was born, but it occurred to me that I could make money on the internet.

If I could somehow make US dollars while living abroad, I could live like a king.

I could work anywhere in the world and have cash flowing in while I sleep (on US time).

It took me about six months, from about January to June (2010) of browsing around different sites, joining tons of mailing lists, watching hours of promotional videos, and following my share of purported “gurus” before I came across Wealthy Affiliate.

In fact, I don’t even remember which website referred me to WA, but the point is that I got there and started my training in June 2010.

By September of that same year I had made my first sale, and I was hooked.

I could actually make money online.

The rest of my internet marketing journey takes off here, which you’re welcome to read.

But I want to talk about myself some more!

So it’s 2013 now, I’ve returned to the US, and work full time as an internet marketer.

Give You a Money TreeI’ve got a couple sites, but what I really enjoy doing is building different types of websites, looking for new revenue streams, and experimenting with different types of marketing strategies.

One More Cup of Coffee is about helping YOU.

So many people have helped me along the way, I think it’s time to “pay if forward”, and give back to the community.

After being in this industry for about 4 years now, I’ve seen hundreds of scams, misleading offers, and hyped sales pages claiming that you can make a billion dollars in 5 days with this one “secret system”

It’s a load of BS.

At the same time, even lots of the honest guys have trouble explaining things in a simple way, or just don’t have the patience to walk you through the baby steps.

I do.

I’ve got a free starter course that you can join that is designed specifically for newbies looking to start making money online. I’ve taken out all the hype and scam tactics that gurus use, and explained the concepts of how I (yes, ME) make money on the internet.

You can join the free course below, PLUS, if you join, you’ll be automatically signed up for future updates that I send out to my subscribers. This includes free insight about how I build my websites, silly mistakes I’ve made, and suggestions for squeezing more profit from your own businesses.

I love my subscribers, and respond to all emails, which is another awesome thing about being an exclusive member of my site. Where else can you get 1-on-1 support building an online business?


If you have any questions or comments you can contact me here, leave a comment below, or just respond to the email that’s in your inbox waiting for you after you sign up for the course.

I’ve got a couple of social media accounts, you know, Facebook, Twitter, etc, but most of the time I’m on Google+

Teach Me To SailIf you’re in the Central Valley, drop me a line. We can grab a beer (or coffee) and talk internet marketing or just life in general.

And on one last note, I’d really like to learn how to sail, so if you know how to sail, or know someone that does, I’d be happy to discuss some kind of teacher-exchange where we can learn from each other.

Here are some pages I suggest you read, to learn more about what I have to offer at One More Cup of Coffee, and how you can start your Internet Marketing Business.

What is Wealthy Affiliate?


  1. "G" says

    Hi Nathaniell, can’t believe I actually looked at something like “12 minute payday”…AGAIN lol, but at least I did my research and ran into your review in the process. I’m promoting [removed], just started, my primary is 4 corner alliance…[removed]….. I respect people that make themselves available, that’s the first indicator for me whether something is legit…hats off sir, maybe our paths will cross in the future.

    • Nathaniell says

      Yeah, stuff like 12MP should be avoided!

  2. zwizard says

    I had to do actual math to leave a message – forced me to tax my few remaining cells! Love your blog. Found you while considering freemoneyprinter. I DO think you missed the concept somewhat from your comments, but I think you were mostly correct in figuring how slowly it might be to create any decent income using that method. It is much more like being an affiliate for BigKaBang. Once you “qualify” by doing your 1 credit worth of trials, you simply get paid whichever level you choose (they recommend $40), you will be paid that amount for every person you get to complete their 1 credit worth of free trials (qualification) at BigKaBang). It really doesn’t cost anything unless you screw up and don’t cancel the free trial before they charge you.
    I have a WA account and will be starting there shortly. I also love that site and wanted to tell you I like what you’re doing here. Love to talk if you’re ever up closer to the Sacramento area. I do know how to sail – don’t have a boat of my own. Know a lot of other stuff too. If you like, shoot me an E.

    • Nathaniell says

      I suppose if so many people tell me that I misunderstood it, I need to go back and look at it. I swear I’ve been over it a few times. Ah well. Point is that it was deceptive marketing IMO.

      I’m in Modesto, so I may go up to Sac-town one of these days!

  3. T Koenke Diaz says

    Hi Nathaniel, I looked at your products review page and didn’t see Automobile Code – are you familiar with this product? I also came across the Empower Network (aka Pizza Boy Millionaire”) and IPAS, which looked to be an offshoot of Empower somehow? Like everyone else, I’m nervous about being scammed, while at the same time hopeful and just keep trying to find something that works, but so far no luck! I’ve at least gotten refunds for products, so not completely scammed :) I came across your site a couple of times while googling reviews on internet business opps, and my immediate thought was, “One More Cup of Coffee, what a cool name!” Planning to subscribe and see what you have to share. You seem refreshingly honest!

    • Nathaniell says

      You are right to be nervous. Yes, both Pizza Boy Millionaire and iPAS are Empower Network groupies, which is odd since the company has lost a lot of traction in the MLM community in the past year.

      I also have a review of Auto Mobile Code.

  4. Shabbir Khan says

    Your Blog does remind me of something… something that I am going through…my only Goal is to become an Internet Marketer… a 7 Figure Internet Marketer and I Grind Day and Night for that…. let me know if we can connect?


    • Nathaniell says

      We’ve already connected! You are here on my blog aren’t you? LOL

  5. Ryan says

    Hi mate, what are the overall monthly costs of being a WA member?

    Are there any additional costs / expenses to run a blog or two through them?

    Cheers, mate.

    • Nathaniell says

      It’s $47/month. You will also probably want to buy a .com from a registrar which is like $10/year. Those are the only costs required. The rest is just your time!

  6. Sanjin says

    Hey Nathaniel,
    this site really is refreshing.Finally something without “make 10 000$ in just one day and similar BS”. I’m real newbie in this kind of work(and not satisfied at all with results) and I hope I can learn something here (or else I’ll just get mad and quit lol).

  7. Louis Blake says

    Hello Nat

    Have you done a review on ‘Income Black Box’? If not I got the following promo URL

    Looking forward to your response.

    • Nathaniell says

      I haven’t seen or heard of it, but will add it to my list! I might even do it today if I get time!

  8. Jason Waite says

    Yo Danielle digg’n your blog man. Yeah I was an Empower Network affiliate, was awarded #72 in San Diego 2012 for one of their affiliate contests. I LOVE blogging as well, and am a REAL blogger not some ‘get rich quick’ signup trying to hit it big LOL. I’m love’n your blog man, because I like backpacking Central and South America, and my favorite places is in the coffee shops and hostels LOL. You should reach out to me on Facebook man. Just use my name or email. :) … By the way too man, I’ve been using the Genesis Framework for my blog as well for the last year or so. Just thought I’d reach out! 1 love man!

    • Nathaniell says

      Thanks for the compliments on the site man. I’m not sure I would be excited to be a top Empower Affiliate considering the state of their company and how they present themselves, but I guess a congrats is due on your marketing skills :)

  9. Reny says

    Hey Nathaniel, I think it’s awsome to have honest entrepreneurs online who are willing to spend some of their time supporting “newbies” and help them create weath and freedom instead of cheating them. I would like to send you a private email ‘coz I wanna join a legit business opportunity.
    Keep up the great work.

    • Nathaniell says

      Sure, just send it on over!

  10. Janiece Lozada says

    Thank you for the enlightenment. I would like to try you’r FREE system and hopefully make the extra cash we all need in these hard time’s. I just hope it’s the right decision

    • Nathaniell says

      You can’t go wrong with free, right? Just remember that there ARE some limitations to the free account, namely the amount of training and support you get. But if you are an independent learner and very motivated, you can absolutely make this work for you.

  11. Karen says

    Hi I hope this finds you doing well. I have been trying for many years now to try and find something I like that I can do in my own time and pace. I worked for over 35 years total ,but 22 years for the same company before I had to take a medical retirement. I loved my job and can say it was so much fun it was like never working and getting paid. The illnesses I have that caused me to leave puts me in hospitals and regular doctor visits at anytime. Since I only collect a very small part of what I used to make, things have only gone downhill for my family and I . I have been scammed once but will say the positive was finding your website. I do hope that I will eventually be able to make some money to help offset the debt that has built up over the years do to my illnesses. I just want to make sure that when I say I am a newbie you know I really do mean it. I look forward to learning new things to help out my family and one day being able to “pay it forward”. I am looking forward to learning from you. Thank you, Karen

    • Nathaniell says

      You are in the same boat as a lot of folks – scammed once, twice shy. If you focus on creating a solid foundation to your business and look to help people instead of just “make money”, you will have a recipe for profit. Contact me within WA if you need help with any of the training and I can answer any specific questions or send you in the right direction

  12. Miriam says

    Hello Nathaniel, I’m going to be very frank with you because I have to avoid the scams and I’m new to internet marketing. I want to do internet marketing for 2 very important reasons: a) I’m the life line for a family member with a chronic illness and I’m committed to make money to do just that so that she can have as good a life that money can afford, and b) In supporting her I’ve realized that working 9-5 is not going to allow me to do so and I need to stay on top financially so that I can maintain my health and strength to take care of her.
    So I’m asking you, from one human being to another, what is real out there in the world of internet marketing?

    Thank you

    • Nathaniell says

      Hi Miriam, if you go through my “about me” page, it should be very clear which program I recommend and why. As with any business venture however, and especially since you are the lifeline of a family member, I strongly recommend you make sure you are in a financial position to invest money into your education about online business before moving forward. Making money in any business venture will not happen over night, and nothing is guaranteed. Online business is not a last-ditch effort to fix financial problems, but it can be an amazing opportunity to create a new life for yourself.

      Please read the above page for details on how I got started and how you can take the same training I did.

  13. Victor says

    I was looking up reviews on the ShoeMoney system and found your review. You didn’t really slay the guy like I would have, but you took it for what it was and gave an honest review. I was impressed. The ShoeMoney system is sold in the old-school, limited-time, special offer, up-selling, hard selling, page after page of video and wanabe motivational stories and I was gagging myself wondering how did this guy ever rank so high on Alexa? I guess there are a lot of sheep out there lol.

    To make a long story short, I tried Wealthy Affiliate even though I had already launched my website and wasn’t THAT much of a newbie (still pretty newb though really) and all I have is gratitude. I check your site regularly now and I really appreciate the support you and Kyle and everyone else give me ‘inside the WA community.’ So here’s my plug for you on your website Nathaniel.

    Love your story, love WA, and thanks again. I’m hoping my gravatar loads in your comments so people can see how devastatingly handsome I am. Bahaha. See ya later bro.

  14. Lance Harkey says

    Hello, Nathaniell,

    ten years. and i make a comfortable living working from home. My goal is to help others do the same.

    I believe wealthy affiliate is one of the greatest sites i have come across. Please review my site I could use some pointers. I’m using this to promote wealthy affiliate

    • Nathaniell says

      Hey Lance, great to hear! Send me a PM and I can take a look at your site.

  15. Michael Esho says

    Dear Nathaniel,
    Why am I saying this? I started looking for ways to make money on the internet in year 2010 (like you).
    OBSTACLES, SCAMS GALORE HAVE BEEN MY EXPERIENCE. Instead on making money, I am losing money right, left and centre.


    Many Regards,
    Michael Esho

    • Nathaniell says

      All you need to do is sign up with the form on this page Michael. We can get you going in the right direction.

  16. deborah says

    Hey Nathaniell,

    I was about to purchase the “IPAS 2″ and ended up running into your review on it. I’m glad I come across your site and I definitely will start my free membership on WA :) I am a college student with a mindset of being my own boss one of these days. >:D I am meticulously looking through scams so I dont get scammed lol. Ive only been tricked once and wont have that happening again! I am extremely patient and hard worki and know earning a decent amount over time will not happen over time but i am a hard worker and am curious how long it took you to start profiting?

    • Nathaniell says

      Glad I could show you a better path to profits Deb. Personally, it took me 3 months to make my first sale, and I was making regular sales after 6 months. In my first year I spent about $400 on my membership to WA and in total profited about $6k. It certainly wasn’t enough to quit my job, but I did end up quitting after another 12 months or so because the business took off soon after that.

      How fast you profit really depends on a number of factors, mainly how much time you dedicated to your website and learning what your audience wants. This will depend on the niche you choose!

  17. Jackie says

    Hi Nathaniel. I am a single woman who has been traveling by car 1000 miles per week for the last 20 years. I have been in a. Drop Shipping scam, but got my money back. Now, I am in an Affiliate Marketing scam. I just want to learn how to make money online. I don’t want to travel like this for the rest of my work life. What do you suggest?

    • Nathaniell says

      The links on this page will take you to my recommended training. I personally provide support for this as well. You will learn affiliate marketing, but it’s legitimate training – the same training I took 4 years ago (but updated). Try the free membership and see if you like it, then decide if you want to upgrade or not.

  18. KB says

    Is there a way where we can suggest a product for you to review?

    • Nathaniell says

      Sure, send me an email! Just make sure you check that I haven’t reviewed it already :)

  19. Demetria Parker says

    Hello Nathaniell, I am a single mother of two in college for business management. I hate my 3-11…lol.. and I would love to be able to make money online. if you were me where would you begin?

    • Nathaniell says

      I would start at Wealthy Affiliate. It’s linked above. Plus, if you use my links I offer 1-on-1 support for free. Remember, it’s going to take time to build your business…your 3-11 will have to be extended an hour or two in order to get your business off the ground. But the stuff you learn is life-changing, and if you can stomach the work, you can do awesome things.
