Retire Early Lifestyle
As explained by their website, Retire Early Lifestyle,
In 1991 Billy and Akaisha Kaderli retired at the age of 38. Now, into their 20th year of this financially independent lifestyle, they invite you to take advantage of their wisdom and experience.
They are the authors of the ebook, The Adventurer’s Guide to Early Retirement, 3rd Edition: A Common Sense Approach. I haven’t finished reading their book, but I’ve been impressed with what I’ve read so far. It’s practical, thorough, and inspiring. My only caveat would be that their experiences are those of a former high-income couple. Most people don’t have the sort of savings and investment portfolio they had at the point when they cashed in and got out of the rat race. Nevertheless, it IS possible for people starting out with less money to combine:
- the creation of multiple passive income streams, and
- the reduction of expenses (in other words, living below one’s means), and
- the tips and strategies described in great detail in their book
to create a lifestyle for themselves in which they DON’T have to trade their life for money with the daily grind of a 9-to-5 job. At minimum, it’s possible to significantly reduce one’s dependence on a job.
As Sojourners, we already know we can create our own “luck.” And make our daily lives more about what we want to do, as opposed to what we have to do. Check out the resources at their site, and their recent interview with the Wall Street Journal.
