Hi, my name's 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.
Internet marketing was just 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.
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 had no job security and saving any money very difficult working for low wages.
So I hatched a crazy plan to make US dollars while working in China. I wanted to start an internet based business so that I could work on my computer in China but earn US money. Even just $30 per day was basically a full time income in China.
I made many mistakes along the way. I wasted time taking surveys. Then I joined a pyramid scheme. One time I stayed up until 4AM to watch an educational webinar that turned out to be a total scam.
It took me about six months of fumbling around: 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.
They were the legit online training center I was looking for. After three months of training I had made my first sale through my website. Six months after that I was generating regular sales. After a total of eighteen months working on my website I was earning over $10,000 per month so I quit my job in China and bought plane ticket back to the USA.
By 2013 I owned my own home, a brand new truck, and a motorcycle!
I was actually making money online!
So it's 2019 now, I've returned to the US, and work full time as an internet marketer. I've been running my online business full time for 5 years now.
I've got a couple sites, but what I really enjoy doing is helping people make money online. The website you're looking at right now is my passion.
One More Cup of Coffee is about helping YOU.
After being in this industry for about 9 years now, I've seen hundreds of scams, misleading offers, and hyped sales pages claiming that you can make lots of money fast with a "secret system". It's all a load of BS.
Making money online is possible, but it takes work. Looking at the big picture, two years is not a lot of time to turn a website into a six figure business, but it can seem like a long time when you're grinding out content day after day.
I made a lot of mistakes along the way. I wasted time, money, and energy over the years. But I also learned a lot during the process!
Now I want to share my knowledge with you and help you start earning money on the internet, through your own website.
