Pete Cymbalak is the founder and co-owner of Empowered Financial Management, LLC. Because Haley Gandara focuses on business operations, Pete has the ability to solely focus on retirement planning and servicing his clients. He absolutely loves to learn, study the economy, and develop new strategies to constantly better provide for his clients.
About 25 years ago, a close family member lost their entire retirement when the company they had worked at for more than 30 years went bankrupt– after it had used up all the employees’ 401(k) money. This left Pete’s family member with nothing, despite decades of hard work saving for retirement. This situation drove Pete to learn how to better prepare for retirement and help others avoid the same disastrous and heartbreaking event.
He couldn’t bear to see anyone else suffer the same loss. After this, he discovered Missed Fortune and has been motivated by this philosophy ever since. For 20 years Pete has been in the financial industry, working with various forms of investment products and solutions hoping to positively impact and avoid disastrous events such as those endured by his family member.
