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.


One of the things I think we Westerners miss is the simplicity that a lot of other nations have in their lifestyles - bringing them happiness and contentment [instead of the] western acquisition based contentment. I really enjoyed your e-book, The Adventurer's Guide to Early Retirement.Very good reading - and you both covered all the major topics and concerns that I - for one - was curious or concerned about.
