In the past ten years, the number of women owned businesses has increased by 44 percent.
Yet, women face unique financial challenges.
They have longer life expectancies than men. They often take time off from careers to raise families or to care for parents during chronic illness.
Rob Rolfe of Harmony Financial Services will address these particular issues and discuss how specific financial plans can be created to overcome them at the next Women’s Network for Entrepreneurial Training’s monthly breakfast meeting on February 6 at 8 a.m. at the SUNY Oswego Phoenix Center in the Oswego County Industrial Park, Phoenix (exit 14, State Route 481).
Rolfe started his career as a registered representative at Prudential Financial Services in 1994.
He was a financial consultant with Independent Financial Marketing Group at Skaneateles Savings Bank from 1997-99. After SSB merged with BSB Bank & Trust, he served as a senior financial consultant.
In 2000, he joined Pathfinder Investment Services as an investment executive.
He remained with Pathfinder Investment Services until 2013, at which time he formed Harmony Financial Services.
