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.

In closing, let me say again how much of an inspiration your book has been. I use it as a guideline to prepare my entry strategy into a new stage of living. And although it will be difficult to remove the "golden handcuffs" that my current employment provides, the thought of continuing with this mundane routine for another decade and a half is not really living.

Thank you for all you do. -  Michel Curi, Jr., MBA - Seminole, FL

Our Latest Adventure

Money Never Sleeps
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Just because you retire, your money doesn’t have to. In the words of Gordon Gecko from the 1987 movie Wall Street, “money never sleeps.” And your money definitely won’t once you leave your job.

20 Questions We Are Frequently Asked
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

January, 1991: At the age of 38, Billy and Akaisha packed it up, sold everything, left the conventional working world, and moved to Nevis, a 36 sq. mile island in the Caribbean. From there they started traveling and haven't looked back. "Life is an adventure, follow your dreams."

A Priceless Retirement
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Some say it's impossible. Others simply dismiss the notion outright even if they are curious. How do we live on less than $30,000 per year while traveling through Thailand, Vietnam, Mexico, Central America and other exotic locations? We don't give up luxury, nor do we deprive ourselves. So what is our secret?

Real Investment Report
Lance Roberts

Markets Climb Above 2900, All-Time Highs Next Stop? - Over the last couple of weeks, we have been discussing the market’s advance from the lows and why retesting old highs was quite probable. To wit: “The markets are close to registering a ‘golden cross.’ This is some of that technical ‘voodoo’ where the 50-day moving average (dma) crosses above the longer-term 200-dma. This ‘cross’ provides substantial support for stocks at that level and limits downside risk to some degree in the short-term.”

“Too frail to work, too poor to retire”

“In the decades to come, we will witness millions of elderly American’s, Baby Boomers and others, slipping into poverty.” Yikes!

How Do You Know You Are Wealthy?
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

What is wealth? In 1988, when we were first contemplating leaving the traditional working world and replace it with a life of travel, wealth was described only in terms of having money and possessions. Our decision to create a lifestyle of our choice was met with controversy. Some friends and family disapproved, while others became angry or confused. In general there was fear, doubt and dire warnings of our social and financial collapse. That’s because our decision challenged everyone we knew.

Break Your Routine without Breaking the Bank
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Need a new perspective? With all the turmoil on social media and the talking heads telling us the next thing we need to worry about, at times it's good to get some new mental scenery. Take a trip!

One Meal a Day
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Traveling can be stressful enough with going from town to town, staying in strange hotel rooms, navigating the city's unfamiliar streets and dealing with the unknown location of restaurants. In Europe, Mexico, Central and South America, even Asia, Australia, Bali and New Zealand, it is not unusual to cook a meal in one's hotel room. Years ago we decided that if we could eat just one meal a day in our room, we could save a small fortune.

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?

Update - Why We Took Social Security at Age 62
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

We decided to take Social Security at age 62. We know there are as many ways to consider this decision as there are days in a year. And many experts advise against taking social security “early” so that you get a bigger check at full retirement age. It is hard to argue against that. We have always lived an unconventional lifestyle and the fact that so many experts agree on waiting for payment gives us pause for thought. Here is our logic.
