About Stephen Gardner

Hello, my name is Stephen Gardner, founder of Automation411 and family man with my lovely wife and business partner, Laura, our two daughters, a Siberian Husky who considers herself my third child, and our newest addition Remy, a Lab Mix I affectionally refer to as “meatball.”

I had known I wanted to own a business since I was young. When I was six, I remember setting up my own “office” in the basement to start caring for work. I had no idea what business I would run, but I never liked working for someone else. I am not one to put my future in someone else’s hands.

College Years

After graduating college with a Master’s degree in Computer Science, I was hired by Google, where I spent the next six years learning search and logic from some of the best minds in the world.

My Career

In September 2019, I accepted a remote position as the Director of Marketing Technology for a coaching company, The Life Coach School, under the business and marketing mastery of its founder, Brooke Castillo, where I remain working. My responsibilities include Ontraport CRM Management, WordPress Website / Membership Management & Marketing Funnel Creation, Optimization & Reporting. During my tenure, I’ve received certifications in SEM Rush, Ontraport, and Clickfunnels, as the company achieved record growth, exceeding 50 million dollars in revenue in 2022.

Daily Life

I moved with the family, purchasing a home in NY, where I opened my blog marketing business, the fruition of that childhood dream. I am grateful to my family, friends, colleagues, and customers for making this dream a reality.

Thanks for visiting the Automation411.com Kartra Blog. Please let me know if I can answer any questions or be of service.
