About Harry Parker

Follow my journey as I share the roadmap to living a comfortable retirement. Like many people around my age we are redefining what retirement is all about. Our generation is not satisfied with just sitting around waiting for time to pass. We’re breaking the rules and making our latter years mean something.

Start Up Seniorpreneur

If you have just joined us you can get a full update on my progress and previous month’s income scorecards by visiting this page.

As I move in to the second month of operating Seniorpreneur there has been some great progress in finding contributors who are willing share their knowledge, expertise and years of experience with other later life entrepreneurs and non-retirees. Contributors to date include Tony Watts, Carol Wyer, Brian Weatherdon and Cathi Bew. Take a minute to view their profiles and their thought provoking articles. If you would like to contribute your expertise or story to Seniorpreneur you can do so here.

Tony raised some very interesting points in his article, Retirement isn’t for everybody, highlighting how we are heading in to an era of “no retirement”, where flexible working arrangements can benefit both the employer and employees.

October Scorecard

My 12 month target is to be earning £1,000 per month. As I’ve previously highlighted this is over double the monthly State Pension of £452.40! For October the monthly income target was £120. Lets see how the numbers stack up.

Income Sources

The two main sources of income for October have remained – Google Adsense and Bing Ads (Media.net).

Adsense

Adsense income for October was £554.92 Adsense October 2014

Adsense income from September 2014 was £263.13, so I’ve seen a £291.79 increase in Adsense revenue for October. Over the course of the month the Adsense dashboard is showing a total of 9,875 page views, 521 clicks with an average cost per click (CPC) of £1.07.

Bing Ads

Bing Ads income for September was $145.76 (~£92.71)
