Subscribed, Boomer Tuber. This is a great initiative on your part. All the best in getting advertisers. How many do you need to reel them in?

Thanks so much for watching, subscribing and thanks for sharing.  I really don't know what my numbers have to be before I get advertisers and make some money.  But, my goal is to find new way of getting older people (like me) connected through technology.  I know there are a lot of people who feel isolated.  Doing the channel helped me feel less isolated.  It can happen so fast especially if you don't work and have not regular way of connecting.  Someone tod me you need at least 100 subscribers before advertisers look at you.  Then I have gotten different information too.  But, I am certain I need more than I have.  Any ideas you have about getting the word out are most welcome.  I recently got business cards made up and O hand them out wherever I go.

This is one of the best videos that I've seen on starting a biz. It surprised me bc I've just published an ezine article, "When You Retire, Who Are You Going to Be?" http://www.ezinepost.com/articles/article-285150.html
It is not difficult to ask an entrepreneur what is he up to and hear back that life is extremely busy and everything around how difficult it is to measure the progress when they are all dipped in boatload of work with milestones and hackathons.

Story
Tagline
Retiree who helps other retirees start a business of their own in retirement
Introduction
I help other retirees like myself and those approaching retirement start a business of their own in retirement.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be the Rev. Dr. Russell Burck, but for decades now, I’ve preferred to call myself “the irreverend Russell Burck.” Irreverence is part of who I am. Irreverence also has a spiritual side. Oops, sometimes a serious impulse sneaks in. I am a retired Presbyterian minister who brings a wealth of various experiences in the US and abroad to the world of business.
About a year into retirement after successful careers in several areas, I decided to increase the income that my wife and I were receiving to more than I had ever earned before. That’s when I started my first of several businesses, and now I'm helping other retirees do the same.
I have a travel blog, I’ve run an online store and I’ve helped other business owners secure top-rate, honest merchant account services – to name just a few of my business ventures.
As I’ve gotten older and wiser, I’ve continued to fuel my passion for business as well as to hone my skills for being successful.
I have the distinction working one-on-one with Steve Sipress, the top entrepreneur-coach in all of Chicagoland. Working with him, I learned many ways to increase any business’s chances of being successful, and I am now offering to share these strategies and tactics with you and other retirees and near retirees who refuse to settle for living out their days in quiet desperation, hoping that the government or someone else will take care of them, or their money won’t run out before they do. And for retirees or near retirees like yourself who want to make a contribution or provide services that people need through a business.
I have a special knack for helping others develop solutions to their problems – a skill I developed into a major strength back in my days as a chaplain and hospital ethics consultant.
Right now I am offering you the opportunity to explore having a business in retirement, at no cost to you.

At Biblical Sem in NY met my darling and brilliant wife, Dorothy. We have two children, Peter, whose wife is Susan Hoines, and Lise, whose husband is Allen Varner. During grad school, I found that I loved visiting people in the hospital, and that was confirmed a bit later, when I spent a year in Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) in Hartford. At that time, I was preparing to teach pastoral care in Wuerttemberg, Germany. The time in Germany was wonderful, speaking German and teaching and writing in it. Came back after three ys to bring our children back to the US. Completed PhD and supervisory ed in CPE. Two yrs in KS as Dir, Chaplaincy Sxs, then rest of my career as hosp chapl, religion and health prof, health care ethics prof; hosp ethics consultant. About 75 publications, incl a bk that I co-edited, Clergy Ethics: Mapping the Terrain. Now working with Enneagram through Assn of Enn. Teachers in the Narrative Trad, writing sevl columns a yr for Talk Journal. Wife, Dorothy and I travel a great deal, "while we still can." Establishing travel blog to record and explore our travel experiences.
