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.

Real Investment Report
Lance Roberts

After almost two months of an “eerie” calm, the markets hit some turbulence last week. While “fake news” from the media has become quite a common occurrence as of late, the latest batch came courtesy of the New York Times. “As suspected, it did end with a bang on Wednesday as markets dropped sharply on the news of a “leaked” memo to the New York Times which suggested an attempted ‘obstruction of justice’ charge by the President. James Comey, former head of the FBI, will now be questioned by Congress next week and asked to provide that memo.
