Some people get overwhelmed by the concept of saving for retirement. But, Entrepreneur Network partner Brittney Castro explains it shouldn't be about only saving -- it should be about investing and compound interest. That's why her first step of preparing for retirement is to open up an investment account, add money and invest it.

Most people go wrong here. They think that once their money is in an investment account, they are automatically receiving interest. That's not the case -- you still need to decide which investment you want to buy into. It's usually a good idea to consult with a financial planner for this step.
