Monthly Income Reports and Traffic Reports

Aging and More with Grace + Frank - Monthly Income Reports and Traffic Reports

Monthly income reports and traffic reports serve to help us to keep track of our progress and learnings. They also provide us with real, hard numbers.  And real, hard numbers about our income and expenses look back at us square in the face, and do not lie.

We are going to put these income and traffic reports together, firstly for ourselves.  And secondly for any of you who are remotely curious about our blogging journey.  I hope it will prove to be an encouragement to others who are considering stepping out into early retirement and feel that they have something they’d still like pour into others!

Let’s start at the very beginning
A very good place to start
When you read you begin with A-B-C
When you sing you begin with do-re-mi

Starting at the very beginning

Thanks to Maria in Sound of Music for those wise lyrics about starting! So, while it seems a little ridiculous and almost futile to be putting together a monthly income and traffic report for a blog that is just launching and does not yet have a single reader, our hope is that we will see progress month-over-month and be able to work with a feedback loop that allows us to course-correct as we go! I suppose it is a little like employing an Agile approach to project management!


Follow along with our monthly progress

Aging and More with Grace + Frank - Monthly Income Reports and Traffic ReportsWe hope that you’ll return here at the start of each month.  Pour yourself a cup of coffee and take a gander at our numbers and learn with us as we grow!
As you may already know, my wife Grace and I are looking at stepping away from our careers to be available as full time care-givers to my folks.  While we are considering our early retirement, we are also aware that having a little extra “fun money” in the bank would afford us the options to travel and do some of the extras we have dreamed of.
If we were to continue working until we each turned 65, we would be in a different position with our retirement.  Taking an early retirement approach, in order to spend quality time with our folks will require a change to our financial plan.  We both have experience that we will be offering in the context of consulting and are super excited for the unknown path that lays ahead!  Aging and More is part of our course-correction!

Putting one foot in front of the other

Kris Kringle in the children’s movie Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town reminds the Winter Warlock to:
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking ‘cross the floor
Put one foot in front of the other
And soon you’ll be walking out the door!
So, here we go!  A little like learning to walk or ride a bike!  One step at a time.  One fall at a time.  Some wins.  Some losses. But we’ll keep putting one foot in front of the other and soon we’ll be walking out the door!
Stay tuned – we’ll be posting our first monthly income report at the start of June!
