Our Story

At an early age, I learned that education is essential to get to where you want to be. I’m from a family of educators. Constant exposure to education has instilled two important principles in me. First, constantly learning is really important. Second, applying what you learn by taking action is necessary to make a positive impact.

The focus of Rolek Retirement Strategies is simple: empower people with the education they need to get to where they want to be. Retirement today is full of challenge and uncertainty. Our educational platform exists to help you prepare to navigate retirement challenges with confidence. Our first goal is to help you learn something actionable about retirement. Our second goal, and this is often the biggest challenge, is to help you apply what you learn by taking actions that will make a positive impact on your retirement.
