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.

Retire Early Lifestyle 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.

I must tell you what a pleasure it was to enjoy your much-awaited book, The Adventurer's Guide to Early Retirement. I admire you both for your many talents, your nerve, and your financial management skills. Without your useful information, practical tips--especially about health care options, and positive attitude, I would never have seriously considered doing this, and now we're both looking forward to it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Best wishes, Marian

Bulls Push To All-Time Highs - Get out your party hats ladies and gentlemen, the markets hit all-time highs this past week. After increasing equity exposure in portfolios on the 11th, as the markets pulled back to the previous break-out support levels, I suggested a push to new highs was likely. “The pullback to the previous breakout support level did allow us to add further exposure to our portfolios as we said we would do last week.

Dare to retire before 50
Judy Martel •

Could retirement before you're even eligible to join AARP be the quintessential impossible dream? Not if you're consistently disciplined, focused, driven and don't give a hoot about what the Joneses think of that beat-up Chevy in the driveway, say experts.

Sheepless in Saquisili - Our week with Shirley
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Time Is on Your Side
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

"Begin now." That's what we say to those 20- and 30-year-olds who write to us asking how they should prepare to retire early. It may surprise you that we get letters from people still in college or just beginning (or even finishing) their careers. Some ask us what line of work they should pursue to give them a head start on cash savings, or where they might find a like-minded partner!

Conserving and Building a Greener Future




Imagine- What if?
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Just for kicks I ran some numbers. What if I would have been able to receive in a lump sum on the day I retired back in 1991, all of my social security money that I and my employers contributed to my account? What if? I was impressed. In fact I was really impressed.

Chapala, Mexico
Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

The north shore of Lake Chapala, Mexico is one of the premier retirement destinations for North Americans. We have been living here off and on since 1993, and there have been many changes to what used to be a sleepy town of 40,000. For the most part, those changes have been good ones. Take a look!

Billy and Akaisha Kaderli

Situated on an artificially-leveled mountain 400 meters (1,315 ft) above the Oaxaca Valley, in southern Mexico, Monte Albán was once the holy city of more than 30,000 Zapotecs (who called themselves the cloud people). It is the area's most interesting and extensively excavated ruin, yet it is estimated that only about 10% of the site has yet been uncovered. Monte Albán traces its history to about 500 B.C.

The Streets of Oaxaca, Mexico
