About Jeff

Website MarketingMy name is Jeff Kastner.  I am the co-creator and webmaster of web-design101.com along with my beautiful and wonderful wife wife, Amy.

I'll quickly describe my professional online experience and what I can help you accomplish and then I'll introduce myself and my family.

Here's what you should know about my professional experience:

Now, if you're like most people, you breezed through those first three bullets pretty fast and you slowed down at the last three. Dollar signs have a way of creating pause.

Make no mistake.. My online earnings to date haven't been enough for me to quit my job and support my family (nor have I made as much as my wife, Amy) but I have two points regarding this:

  1. My earnings have afforded me the opportunity to really enjoy life and always have extra money to spend on my family, which was my goal from the start.
  2. I feel confident that I could have easily made six figures working online in the last two years but with a full-time job, these earnings represent me working an average of about 1-2 hours online, 5 nights a week.

Pretty good part time income!

I make these points not to brag in any way but because web-design101.com is about showing YOU how to build a website and make money with it. Between Amy and I, we understand several ways to create income online and we're very good at it. I developed online for years and started down the road of online income only in 2010, after witnessing the success my wife was having. I've been doing it ever since and it's happening for me right now as I type this and sit in my EZ Chair watching television.

Let us share what we know with you and help you create passive income online!

The Personal Side

I am fortunate in that I love my full time job and I have no desire to give it up. I'm a Database/Network Administrator for McKesson Corporation, currently #14 on the Fortune 500 list. I love the work I do and the people I get to work with. I need the social aspects of going to a job every day and being around people. It fulfills me and I don't believe I would be as happy working from my home every day.

In addition to playing online, I love working out, playing volleyball, music.. including playing the guitar, piano and singing. I've been in bands for years and finally put that on hold when my kids were born a few years ago. No rush to get back but I do plan to someday.

My Family?

My wife and kids are the source of my inspiration. I couldn't be happier or feel more blessed. I've got two young toddlers that make me smile and laugh like I never have before. I always knew I'd love being a Dad but it's an even better gig than I dreamed it would be.

As for Amy, I can't say enough. She's the most beautiful girl I've ever known and it's great to be married to my best friend. We enjoy all the same things (playing volleyball being the only exception I can think of). We're both very passionate about everything we do and we're both addicted to our computers!

About Web-Design101

We created web-design 101 for the sole purpose of helping beginners to create a website and make money online. As popular as the internet has become, there are still millions of people who don't know how to create a website or blog, but have a strong to desire to learn.

I think there's a very big misconception with web design that only a professional can do a good job.  Today, there's such a wealth of information and tools available that anyone can learn what is needed to know and succeed in designing the perfect site.  The first goal of this site is for showing the basics of web design and making it easy enough for anyone to understand.

Creating a website for the first time can seem like a daunting task but I've learned that anyone can do it with a little patience and guidance. Creating your own website can be a very rewarding and exciting experience. From making blogs to business sites to online marketing and creating unusually unique and useful websites, I've learned a great deal about making a website, promoting it and earning online income. It is these experiences that I want to share with you on this website.

You'll find a wealth of information here. The knowledge is all free and I want to see others profit like I have. This pie is plenty big for anyone who wants a piece.

The internet has created some great new experiences in my life as well as a new source of income that I never imagined possible just a few years ago. In furthering my online journey, I hope to share what I've learned, collaborate with others and challenge myself along the way.  Web-Design101 is a site that I will promote and use as a tool to show others that you can start from ground zero, build it and then create a profit from it. It also allows me to meet some new friends along the way.

I sincerely hope you say hello, collaborate and jump in head first. You'll likely be surprised at the first check you receive, and I can guarantee you the path to getting that check.
