In this episode, I interview Edward Rocha, the founder and President of Rola Corporation and the Rola Languages, and CEO of The Morning Goals.

Furthermore, Edward launched his third business, The Morning Goals to help entrepreneurs, creatives, and aspiring reach their full potential.
Edward is a passionate entrepreneur, language and communications specialist. That’s when he came up with an idea to formalize his teaching method and founded Rola Languages in 2008 which became a part of Rola Corporation, which was also founded by Ed in 2015. Five years later, The Morning Goals was born and during the afflict of the pandemic, Ed pivoted to coaching.
