Glen Burnie, MD – June 10, 2013 – Estate planning attorney and host of The Savvy Investor TV and radio show, Michael Canet, recently published an article on The Savvy Investor website on the myths and realities of making it to a million by the age of 65. In this article, “10 Ways to Make or Break Your Retirement,” Canet blends the best of common-sense money managing with tricks of the trade only a professional would know.

Canet writes, “In short, if you start saving at the tender age of 25, you can make it to a million. But then life will happen, to the tune of $117,000 on average, lost to an ex-spouse, unemployed progeny, or a flat market. So while you’re planning your retirement, give yourself some padding to expect the unexpected. Then, if you break it before making it, you have a chance to make it back.”
