Retire Early Lifestyle is a content based website that 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.

Akaisha and Billy Kaderli are an inspiration. When they retired at very young ages decades ago, they probably never imagined that they would teach a generation how to live life like locals almost any place in the world and how to savor the good life on a shoestring. Whether you scan their website and books for tips for your next adventure or just enjoy their accumulated wisdom as an armchair traveler, you will be richer for it. I had the privilege of writing the forward to their latest book and to introduce them to hundreds of thousands of my readers when I was a senior editor at Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine. - Mary Beth Franklin, Senior Editor, Kiplinger's Personal Finance

Dave Ross from CBS Radio interviews Billy and Akaisha

I have worked with Akaisha and her husband, Billy since 2006 during which time they have regularly submitted articles for various publications with which I have been involved. They consistently submitted quality content which was of great value and interest to our readership. Their work needed little, if any editing as they write in an interesting and informative style with attention to detail. Their focus is on being able to travel the world rather than follow a conventional retirement lifestyle and they offer advice and tips based on what they have learned from their first hand experiences. They are truly experts in the field of nomadic and overseas retirement and are an asset to any publication where this type of information is required.

Communication with Akaisha and Billy has always been professional yet friendly, businesslike, but fun. A fantastic and rare combination of attributes. -

Highly recommended. - Jonathan Look, Photographer, Journeyman Images
