You may be able to retire earlier than you think. After working for 24 years in public education, I retired
at age 46, with a monthly pension! Impossible? Not at all! Not if you have the help and expertise of one

Ameritime team to review your situation. By going through the financial discovery process with you,
strategies may be identified and implemented that can get you retired and enjoying life sooner than you
