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.

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

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.
