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.

I have read your book, The Adventurer's Guide to Early Retirement, several times and now I and my wife are in the process of getting into full retirement. Your experiences as described in the book have been giving us the much needed confidence to make the jump. 

Thanks again, Yajaman
