About Stephen Gardner

Lean In and Take a Closer Look

I want you to see the real me.

I’m Stephen Gardner, a 40-year-old guy from Batavia, New York who turned in my resignation at a manufacturing firm and designed a life that’s right for me and those I care about the most – my family.

I’m pleased and proud to say I make a living on the internet.

This Is Where I Tell You I Didn’t Win the Lottery

But I’m one of the luckiest people on earth.

You won’t find a Lamborghini in my driveway, I don’t hold an ounce of celebrity status, and I’ve never cashed in on lottery winnings, (although I do love scratch off tickets).

My fortune lies in having a beautiful girlfriend, a loving family, truly awesome friends, and a line of work that allows me plenty of time to make some lasting memories with all of them.

Once Upon a Time

I made a terrifying life-altering decision that ended up being the very best thing that could have ever happened.

Following a miserably unnerving day at the office engaging in a disagreement with my boss, I awakened the next morning and decided NO MORE! I submitted my resignation and bid farewell to the time clock and the rat race.

In fact, my 9 to 5 job was holding me back from the fervent desire to earn more money and work fewer (and more flexible) hours.

Truth is …

As a whole, I enjoyed my daily assignments as a Database Developer / IT Manager at that manufacturing firm. However, I was totally convinced that working for someone else was never going to fully satisfy me and never going to give me the financial independence I wanted for myself and my family.

I’m not going to pull any punches.

The first few years of running my own business from home were challenging. I was devoting 60 to 70 hours a week to build a rock solid business foundation.

But I want you to know the rewards far outweighed the rough spots, long hours, and bumps in the road.

​In 2011, I opened the virtual doors to eCompany Solutions, an internet services company specializing in WordPress website development and search engine optimization, fondly referred to as SEO.

Thankfully, WebOzy grew quickly and has allowed me to have a full time income while serving some darn cool clients.

Meet My Blog, “Passive Profit 101”

I want to be as transparent as possible about everything I do online - my approach to business building and management, my strategies, and my income.

It’s all out there for you to see.

No, the purpose of my blog is not to show off my success.

Passive Profit 101 demonstrates how I’m able to work part time, enjoy what I do, and earn enough income to be financially secure so I can embrace life to the fullest and not stress over money.

If you’re already doing business online, I trust that my experiences, both my wins and my failures, will help you get much closer to reaching your goals.

Not yet doing business online but thinking about it?

Help yourself to a front row seat to observe what it’s like, examine what’s involved, and make decisions on your own without having to pay someone and be subjected to the possibility of false claims and wasted money.

Earning any type of income online takes a lot of hard work, a lot of patience and a little bit of luck - although I honestly believe we create our own luck.

I’m here to inform, educate, and inspire you.

Above all else, I want you to do this the right way. You won’t get any hard sells from me, long rambling sales pages, or fluffed-up hype – just real life case studies and recommendations based on my own experience with online business and blogging.

Well, look at you. High five! You’ve made it all the way down the page. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I hope to see you soon on the blog.

All the best,

Stephen​ Gardner
