In 1991 Billy and Akaisha Kaderli retired at the age of 38. Now, into their 3rd decade of this financially independent lifestyle, they invite you to take advantage of their wisdom and experience.


Love the website and the download book, The Adventurer's Guide to Early Retirement, and have been following your adventures for a few years now.  I am retiring early in 7 years.  I am 36 right now, and can't wait. It is fantastic to have that goal, and reading your information makes it seem not only desirable, but also very possible.  I've met a wonderful woman and life partner who has the same goal as I, and we are on this wonderful new journey together, using your Guide to help us along.
