About Carol



Meet Carol Marak...

After spending nearly a decade helping my parents with the aging issues, I had a wake-up call, “Who will do for me all the things I did for my parents?”  Taking note of that difficult truth, I got on the stick and created a roadmap to guide me to address the inevitable complexities of aging alone.

I know what’s truly needed when a person has only herself to rely on.

I have taught hundreds of adults to think more creatively about and to take action for acquiring stronger health, a connected and supportive lifestyle, an inspiring purpose, more engagement, safe and secure  finances and legal concerns—and more. Media refers to me as the go-to authority of the fastest growing adult population—aging alone. 

After years of assessing and researching, I landed in a well-connected urban area in Dallas. Happy to add, the lifestyle fits my personality and better yet, helps me feel more confident about aging alone. 

Outside of my passion for mentoring and supporting solos, I enjoy the outdoors as an avid walker.  

And most importantly, I'm thrilled when individuals begin to explore the wide-range of possibilities they have available to them to live well far beyond tomorrow!
