Dear Billy and Akaisha,
First of all, thank you for the very helpful information that you posted in your webpage about the “20 Questions – We Are Frequently Asked.”
Today, the company that I work for is having a session with Merrill Lynch about retirement. I’m 28 years old. I’ve been saving for retirement since I was around 18. Anyways, I was searching the internet for questions that I can ask Merrill Lynch about retirement and I happened to find your “20 Questions – We are Frequently Asked.” This was very helpful for me. I want to truly thank you for giving us (the readers) truthful and helpful answers about your retirement experience.
I am going to definitely use your responses to the questions that you are frequently asked to help me plan my retirement. I want to retire early and enjoy life. As you mentioned, “Life is a risk.” I want to enjoy life. If there is anything that you can (and would like to) share with me about your experiences and/or retirement, please know that it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you and best regards,
Hi Jose Jesus,
Thank you for taking the time to write. We love to hear from our Readers!
We are very pleased that you have discovered our website, and we believe that you will find answers to many of your questions about how to become financially independent. On our website and blog we discuss lifestyle decisions one can make regarding the approach to consumer debt, and the areas of greatest spending in any household: housing, transportation, taxes and food which you can implement right away.
I have subscribed you to our free newsletter for starters, and I would kindly direct you to the following webpages for more information that you will find useful.
Our Retirement Issues Page has interviews of us as well as articles we have written on lifestyle and approaches to the health care dilemma.
Our Preferred Links Pages have links to all topics of financial independence, travel, lifestyle choices, housing choices, and there are financial tools, worksheets, recommended reading and more.
In our Digital Bookstore you will find the books we have written on financial independence – which, if you follow our simple and proven approaches – will change your life. We also have books on travel, specifically to places we have been.
Jose Jesus, I hope you continue to implement your passion for excellence and financial independence. Many people will tell you it is not possible and that this is an unrealistic pursuit. They will give you every scenario in the book as to why this won’t work, and they might even be well-wishers like family and friends.
The only one who can make this happen is you. You are the one who chooses, on a daily basis, what is important to you and why. Financial independence is a worthy goal as it frees your time up to do very important things like volunteering, or becoming a mentor.
By the way, I hope you found your company’s session with Merrill Lynch to be meaningful and useful.
Please feel free to write any time and we look forward to hearing from you.
Wishing you all the best,
Akaisha and Billy Kaderli
