Retire Early Lifestyle is a content based website that 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.

Worried about retirement? What WILL you do with ALL that time? You know you want it to be much more than a marathon of soap-opera viewing. And you don’t want to simply count the hours, the days, till your next doc appointment. Well, Billy and Akaisha have hit that worrisome retirement “nail” right on the head! Their book, The Adventurer’s Guide to Early Retirement, 4th Edition, Your Simple Path to FIRE, is an oasis smack in the middle of the retirement-worry desert! On my blog I address retirement and the issues daily, and let me tell you, Billy and Akaisha do more than simply talk a good story. They are prime examples of the best that COULD be. And now they show us HOW to make it happen!

Real Investment Report
Lance Roberts

Understand Bear Markets, Don’t Fear Them - I am a value-oriented investor and prefer to buy assets when they are fundamentally cheap based on several factors including price to sales, free cash flow yield, and high return on equity. However, being a strict value investor can also lead to a variety of investment mistakes, primarily emotional, when markets become both highly correlated and driven by speculative excess.

Mae Hong Son Loop
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

I traveled solo. It’s not the first time, but it’s been 8 years since I've journeyed alone in Thailand. My independent wandering forces me to be more out going and meet people, which is exciting. One couple I met on the bus had lived in India for the last ten years. When I commented that riding on this bus was torturous they responded by saying it was first class compared to India!

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

No matter what goes on in the news, Washington or the world, to build a stable tomorrow, we must take control of our own lives. Even with all the current upheaval, here are five things you can do today to empower yourself.

Chacala Malecon and Harbor Chacala, Nayarit, Mexico
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Many beach towns in Mexico have a malecon. This is a walking area alongside the ocean where, in our experience, people meander, walk their dogs, or do a morning jog. Sometimes there are sitting areas or wrought iron benches surrounded by bronze sculptures, flowering plants, and trimmed palms. And other times there are shops, park amenities like skateboard areas, and exercise equipment.

Billy and Akaisha's Three Lessons on Retirement
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Retirement is a great achievement, but it's not static. It's not like once you arrive you can forget about it and put it on auto-pilot. It's an interactive manner of living that continues to respond to our input, the new skills we learn and how our goals modify. Hopefully we continue to grow and change, making our retirement sustainable and sweeter to live.

Early Retirement as a Lifestyle
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

You can retire early to spend free time as you want; travel, study and learn, play sports, pursue a hobby… We did! In 1991, at the age of 38, we left our fast track lives, packed it up, sold everything, and moved to Nevis, a 36 sq. mile island in the Caribbean. From there we started traveling and haven’t looked back. Are we living the life YOU want right now? Is this idea appealing? Where to start?

FIRE Financial Independence, Retire, Early
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Here we are, well into our 29th year of financial independence, and according to the pundits it wasn’t suppose to be this way. We were supposed to run out of money, the 4% rule doesn’t work, and we would be bored. Yet, we’re still going strong. What do we know that they don’t?
