Lanches on Lake Atitlan Guatemala

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.

We recently took an early retirement "test drive" to Thailand. We've read your guide from cover to cover (figuratively speaking), and have spent many hours on your web site doing our research. We spent 4 days in Chiang Mai and 4 days in Phuket. Chiang Mai is a great alternative to the chaos of Bangkok. It has a great laid-back feeling that is more representative of "true" Thailand. We stayed at the Thapae Gate Guest House, across the soi from Top North. The price was only $10 per night, and the staff was great. In Phuket, we stayed at Kata Sun Beach Hotel as you've recommended. It was everything you said it would be - clean rooms, friendly staff, excellent location, inexpensive. It is truly a superior value. Being based in Hong Kong, we are really fortunate to have such great places almost at our doorstep. We're definitely now sold on early retirement, and will be making our preparations to early retire in less than a year. Thanks again for all your inspiration and helpful information. God Bless.

Transitioning to Retirement A Remarkable Story
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Has your transition to retirement gone smoothly? Did you meet unexpected obstacles along the way? If so, how did you handle those? Did you move through them, take a different turn, or stop? Our first days into retirement absolutely did NOT go smoothly.

What to Do with Mail on Long-term Travel?

Real Investment Report
Lance Roberts

It’s A Shutdown…. On Friday, the Senate failed to reach a comprise necessary to pass a 30-day “continuing resolution,” or “C.R.” in order to keep the Government funded. Let me clarify something about “continuing resolutions.” The government has been operating without a budget since 2009. Instead of passing a budget, Congress has opted to forgo the silly process of legislative procedure to effectively just operate the government with a “blank check.”

How Much Is Enough?
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

The challenge was not realistic. No matter how hard or long we worked, we couldn't compete with Bill Gates' net worth. It just wasn't going to happen. Once we got that fantasy out of the way, we asked ourselves: How much money is enough to retire?

Puerto Escondido - Revisited - Oaxaca, Mexico
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

While enjoying our time in the Colonial city of Oaxaca, Mexico, we decided to skip over to the beach for a few days. We had a choice of taking a twisting and turning 7 to 12 hour winding mountainous road trip on a bus or shuttle as we had done a couple of years ago, or, as someone recommended, take a more-or-less private flight from the city to one of our favorite beach towns, Puerto Escondido.

Retire to Mexico?
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Chapala, Mexico continues to be a prime destination for North Americans to retire. Even with the current expansion changes which cause the town to become congested with traffic on weekends and during the 'snowbird season,' there seems to be no slowing down of either the building of communities or the enthusiasm of newcomers. Having one of the best climates in the world, an eternal spring, the natural beauty of the area is remarkable.

The Best Investment Move We Ever Made
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

It wasn’t supposed to work out this way. According to the financial pundits, we should have run out of money long ago, barely getting by, living on social security, and with little possibility of travel. At least, according to the money managers who write article after article on how Americans are not saving enough, investing poorly and need to follow their advice to succeed. If their advice is so great, why are they still working?

5 Steps for Millennials to Become Financially Independent

Becoming financially independent is a worthy goal no matter at what age one achieves it. If you are a Millennial, where do you start?

Latina Shoes - Yowza!
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

It's a mystery to me how the young ladies of today can walk on the cobblestone streets of Antigua, Panajachel, Chapala, or elsewhere in Central America in the stunning high heeled shoes they wear. It's true of the women in Asia as well. Gorgeous. Truly.

Was it Worth it? - Retiring 20+ Years Ago at Age 38 - Was It Worth It?
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

During one of our private two-hour lunches, Akaisha brought up the topic: “Was retiring early at the age of 38 worth it?” Wow! What a question. We each have had our share of personal ups and downs in life - before and after we retired. It was a subject worthy of discussion.

8 Must-See Places in Mexico
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Mexico is a huge country and it's hard to know where to go if you only have a limited time to visit this nation. Some people prefer the beaches, some might want to take advantage of the culture, history and international restaurants, and others could consider emigrating to spend their retirement years there.
