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.

People Laughed at Us

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

People laughed when we told them we were retiring at the age of 38. Today now into our 28th year they are still working and we’re still here.

It’s not bragging if you can do it.

We know folks have been hurt financially from the real-estate bubble bursting, but that is why we sold our house years ago, though a bit early in the final run up. People laughed then too, because we sold our home, yet today, many are still underwater.

These days we travel, manage our liquid investment portfolio from a notebook computer and visit places most only dream of. And we don’t stay for two weeks or less but for as long as we’d like to get a feel for a place. If it appeals, we stay longer or return at a later date.


In 1993 we visited Chapala, Mexico for what we thought was going to be two months. Those two months turned into four amazing years and now Chapala is a home base for us, and we utilize it for travels to other parts of Mexico and Central America. In Asia we stayed 365 days on our one year Thai visa before returning to the US only to head back to Asia again.

The beauty of our lifestyle is that we are living it, not packing each calendar square full of vacation events. We go with the flow enjoying day-to-day living, immersing ourselves into exotic cultures, and are still able to take advantage of the good life along the way. Getting to know people more in depth - everyone from the local fruit vendor to the foreigner in the next hotel room – is one of the things we enjoy most. It’s a lifestyle, not a vacation; thus, our lives and hopefully theirs are enriched as well.


As I write this from the shores of Lake Atitlan, Guatemala, I am reminded of just how fortunate we are.

Thank you to all of the friends and acquaintances we have met over the years. Each of you have contributed colorfully to our journey.
