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 traveled solo in 6 countries in Asia for 6.5 months last winter. Some highlights were trekking in the Himalayas in Nepal with a private guide, and a tour of an elephant sanctuary and kayaking to see the rare Irrawaddy Dolphins living in the Mekong River in Cambodia. I saw the Komodo Dragons and watched dolphins in the ocean in Indonesia. I also went on a private 3-day 2-night boat cruise to visit feeding stations for rehabilitated orangutans in Indonesia, where I had 4 staff taking very good care of me. By watching my net worth and tracking expenses as you advise, I have been able to comfortably spend more while my net worth continues to grow. It has been almost 3 years since I started this lifestyle!

Real Investment Report
Lance Roberts

Bulls Keep It Together - As we said last week: “As shown, there is a significant amount of overhead resistance between 2780 and 2800 which may present a challenge in the short-term to a further advance. However, I suspect any weakness next week will likely provide a decent opportunity to increase equity exposure modestly. This idea aligns with the updated the ‘pathway analysis.’ We had previously given pathway #1, #2a and #2b a 70% probability of coming to fruition.
