About Nate

Hi, I’m Nate and with one simple trick I’m going to make all of your dreams come true!

Just kidding. Wouldn’t that be nice though?

Well, I am Nate and I am here to help you live the life that you’ve always dreamed of but that “one simple trick” is actually not as simple as it sounds. If it was simple to create wealth from scratch then everyone would be living the life of their dreams and the world would be a much happier place.

Sadly, that’s not the world we live in.

But is it possible?

Ever since the dawn of the internet there have been countless stories of regular people, people who would have otherwise probably never made it out of their hometowns, amassing enormous amounts of wealth for themselves just from working online.

And I wanted in.

To be able to earn a living for myself without having to answer to someone else has always been the number one goal in my life. You’ve probably had the same goal at some point in your life as well.

A life that you can live on your terms that allows you to do all the things that you love.

For me? I would love to have time to travel more, attend all the summer musical festivals I want, fly a helicopter over the Grand Canyon, go snowboarding in the Alps, or wake up on a different tropical island each month for a year.

Earn a living working online and take your life on the road.

Unfortunately those things aren’t really possible if I’m spending 40-50 hours a week working for someone else and barely making enough money to scrape by.

I have always rejected the idea of having to work a 9 to 5 desk job for the rest of my life but have always came up short when looking for a legitimate way to earn a living working online.

Online gambling isn’t really a great long-term plan. I could use my Finance degree and trade stocks online, but that’s riskier than gambling and takes a lot more money to start than I can afford to lose. I don’t think online modeling is my thing and YouTube fame doesn’t seem like it’s going to happen, so those are out as well.

I might be exaggerating a bit but if you’re like me then it probably feels like you’ve considered just about anything in order to try to earn a living working online.

And so i kept on looking.

One thing I hadn’t considered, mainly because I assumed I needed a lot of money and multiple investors in order to do so, was starting my own business.  I was stuck in the old way of thinking, the pre-internet way of thinking, that I needed to have a brick-and-mortar business and own a franchise that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to start up in order to start a successful business.

It turns out, with the beauty of the internet, anyone – you, me, your Uncle Joe, the girl bagging your groceries, the corporate bank CEO – can easily start their own business online and work from anywhere.

Whether or not that business makes any money is completely up to how hard you are willing to work in order to make it successful.

If you want to stop having to always answer to someone else and start earning a living for yourself by working online then you have no other choice but to stop making excuses and start taking action.

That is where I would always get stuck in trying to make money online – I would give up before I gave myself long enough to really find something that was legitimate. Sifting through scam after scam promising to make me rich fast – all they needed was thousand dollars first – gave me little hope that there was anyone out there that honestly wanted to help me earn a living working online without trying to scam me.

until one day not too long ago…

While going through a 14-day ‘get-rich-quick’ scheme, I Googled the website after they asked me to start paying $400 in order to “really start making money” and eventually ended up reading a review of Wealthy Affiliate.

Keeping a skeptical eye since I had literally just came from being told that the website that I was just going through was a scam, I took a look at Wealthy Affiliate’s website, what they had to offer, and what they were all about and it kind of took me by surprise.

Think Facebook when they only allowed registered college students to join and it was more of an exclusive club than a place where your Aunt Betty posts pictures of her dog’s birthday party.

Wealthy Affiliate is an exclusive club of thousands of like-minded people all with the same goal of starting a successful online business and earning a living working online – and I wanted to be part of that club.

The best thing? It was free to join the website and the initial training and access to the site was also free so I could check it out without having to worry about getting ripped off.

As many times that I’ve been asked to pay hundreds of dollars before I was able to get the “real secret” from websites trying to scam me, when a Wealthy Affiliate allowed me full access to their entire site in order to determine whether or not I want to join full-time, it didn’t make any sense not to give it a try.

And so I joined – for free – and started building my business from the very first day.

I make it sound easy because it was.

Wealthy Affiliate provides all of the training and support that you could ever ask for when starting your own online business. Even with no experience you can be up and running, like I was, the very first day.

Once I got started I realized that if I was serious about finding a way to earn a living working online and start working for myself then it was going to take a lot of hard work and the only person that was going to do it for me was myself.

And that’s where I am now – building my online business.

Businesses, actually.

The first website that I created is about something completely different than helping people earn a living working online, but after seeing what I have been able to accomplish with the help of Wealthy Affiliate I knew I had to share it with as many people as I could.

So that is what I plan to do with this website and I hope that the insight that I offer and the topics that I cover are able to help you to earn a living working online and start living life on your terms.

If you have any questions or thoughts about anything that you see on this site please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment or send me an email at nate@earnalivingworkingonline.com and I’d be happy to chat!
