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.

Thank you for taking the time and effort to write The Adventurer's Guide to Early Retirement. I really enjoyed the pictures, and it truly was medicine for my very soul. I really think that is the best financial book and just how to live life book that I have ever read, and I have read thousands of books. I am not very good at expressing my words in writing, but I hope when I say that your book made my soul Smile, and set my dreams on fire again, it can somehow convey how much it meant to me.

Are You Seeing Windows or Walls?
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

All of us have struggles in life. Be it financial, health issues, family challenges, or something in our career; we all have stuff. Whether you succeed and move towards fulfillment and success or close down and become stagnant out of fear is your choice. The difference is how you approach these obstacles in your life.

Financial Independence: Going from Satisfaction to Satisfaction
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

As more and more Boomers retire, articles on the topic proliferate in the news and online media. One such recent article in the New York Times by Joanne Kaufman titled, Is Early Retirement Great? For Some, It's Hard Work to Have Fun presented some surprising challenges and questions. The ones that struck me the most are listed below, and I've given a different - and hopefully more uplifting - perspective on the conundrum that some people face.

The Experience Dividend
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Who said work is a four-letter word? With millions of Baby Boomers poised to leave the workforce within the next decade, many of us want to find ways to contribute from our vast wells of experience and knowledge. We want more freedom of expression in our lives instead of continuing what might be a lukewarm commitment to a full-time job.

8 Reasons To Hold Cash -  “With the breakdown of the market to the 200-dma, the market is now at a much more critical ‘make or break’ juncture. Here as some points to consider: The market triggered a short-term “sell signal” last week with a break of the 75-dma. (bearish) The market is “oversold” on a short-term basis which provides fuel for a reflexive bounce. (bullish) As I will discuss in a minute, the longer-term uptrend of the market remains intact. (bullish) Support held, again, at the rising 200-dma on Friday. (bullish) The short-term downtrend of the market continues to gain strength. (bearish)

Travel the World as a Couple on $2,000 a Month - A Passport Dividend
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Once someone learns that we retired at the age of 38 in 1991 and have been traveling the world ever since, they ask, "How could you afford such a lifestyle? It must cost a fortune for airfare, to live in guesthouses, hotels, apartments and eating out!" When we tell them that this lifestyle hasn't cost us anything -- in fact, we made money -- they're floored.
