My friend and referrer to Wealthy Affiliate, Nathaniell, agreed to participate in my Wealthy Affiliate interview series. Who is Nathaniell Brenes? His real name is Roderick, but he’s better known on the internet under his pseudonym “Nathaniell”. He is an all-rounder. From a former kindergarten teacher, playing and entertaining little children, he went to China to learn Mandarin which he became fluent in.
Nathaniell saw the shortcomings in his future retirement provision and that made him decide to try his luck online, after a few wanderings he started the course at Wealthy Affiliate and after a few months of hard work he managed to earn more than $ 10,000 with his website and he bought a plane ticket to return to the US.
Nathaniell is a full-time internet marketer and here are his answers to my questions.
I started my first website when I was 25
Note from Loes: This is not his first website but it’s his most successful website. On this website, he is exposing online scammers and he is reviewing legal online products.
I spend the most money on written content.
I brew beer in my spare time.
Note from Loes: One of his hobbies is brewing beer. When you are inspired by brewing beer too, you have to read his recipe page! He creates his own beer recipes, and this one, in particular, is very suitable for the upcoming Christmas days.
“Orange Clove Witbier All Grain Recipe.”
I prefer to work by myself so I can set my own pace and expectations.
My first blog posts were terrible and boring because I didn’t know what to write about. I didn’t understand how to create content and express my opinions online.
The most difficult part of writing is figuring out what you’d like to write about. You can say anything online, but what will have the most impact?

The best advice I can give to make a multi-year commitment. Think 2-3 years in the future. What do you envision for yourself? Your future self will thank you for putting in the hard work.
I’ve never made a mistake that I didn’t think turned out for the better years down the road. I don’t really regret anything!
I really dislike when people can’t see the other side of an argument. You may not agree, but at you should be able to sympathize with other viewpoints.
25. I’m most passionate about trying to piece together affiliate marketing strategies that work. It’s frustrating, but exciting at the same time.

It’s easy and fun to create your own website and to join me and Nathaniel at the Wealthy Affiliate platform.
Note from Loes:
Not only at the Wealthy Affiliate University, but all around the world, Nathaniell made tons of friends. During his period in China, but also traveling Europe. His online business gives him the opportunity to live the laptop lifestyle by simply blogging on websites. Nathaniel is a good example of “following your dreams”, and created the lifestyle that everyone would love.
It’s my hobby to make animated signatures. And I made a special one for Nathaniell too.
