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.

Retire Early Lifestyle appeals to a different kind of person – the person who prizes their independence, values their time, and who doesn’t want to mindlessly follow the crowd.

I found your book, The Adventurer's Guide to Early Retirement, to be very inspirational reading. The concept of an inexpensive back-up home or home base made a lot of sense. The idea of travel and overseas living draws my wife and I on all kinds of levels. But I always worried about wanting to return to the US in my 70’s or 80’s for Medicare, etc and being priced out of the market. Your plan took away that fear and we are looking at cheap and easy to maintain houses in the Ozarks now. Also, making medical vacations part of an over health plan with a high deductible major medical plan is great. Thanks to both of you and enjoy your adventures! Perhaps our paths will cross some day.

Conserving and Building a Greener Future


Real Investment Report
Lance Roberts

2018 Bear Market Is Over…For Now- “Turning points in the market, if this is one, are extremely difficult to navigate. They are also the juncture where the most investing mistakes are made.  Over the last several weeks, I have been providing constant prodding to clean up portfolios and reduce risks. I also provided guidelines for that process –  click here. For now, it is important to note the ‘bullish trend’ remains solidly intact and, therefore, we must give the ‘benefit of the doubt’ to the bulls.”
