When did you start really thinking about, and maybe even stressing over, retirement? In your 50s, or 40s, or maybe even your 20s? Our discussion piece today, written by our friend Eric Brotman, talks about the increasing number of people in their early working career that are stressed about retirement. From stressing over saving enough money and comparing yourself to others (thanks, social media!) our contributors give their take and some tips they’ve learned over the years. Krista Edwards (Ready to Roth), Paula Pant (Afford Anything) and Len Penzo (len penzo dot com) join our roundtable and share the ways they’ve reduced their stress about retirement.

I liked the trivia question which lead me to wonder…. if companies are spending 5.5M on a Super Bowl Commercial, and we know that that most of those commercials end up being part of a campaign that may last weeks or months, how much money do most companies make from their Super Bowl Campaign and is it worth it?
We wondered the same thing. It must be sky-high.
