Hi, 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.
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.
I 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.
I’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’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+
If 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.
