A goal without a plan is just a wish. This is especially true with the financial decisions that shape our daily lives and build our futures. Many of us spend a lot of time thinking about what we want and worrying about if and when we will achieve it, but when it comes to the specific details and the challenges (both technical and emotional) of putting a plan in place, our efforts often fall far short of our intentions.
When it comes to planning, that first step - faced with a blank slate and a long list of things we know we need to do - is the hardest part. At Athena Wealth Strategies, we work with you as a guide and a partner to get from hopes and dreams to a strategy and road map so that you can understand where you’re going and know you’re taking the actions that lead towards where you want to be in the future.

Working together with you, we will help to define your personal road map and goals for retirement while we maximize your finances for the future. Athena Wealth Strategies is an advice-based firm of financial advisors that provides you with financial analysis and advice with one goal in mind - your plan for the future.

Although most people have goals and hopes for their future, relatively few take the time required to put together a plan that will show them what they need...

There is an equilibrium between inflation and interest rates and the impact on the economy. Increasing the money supply makes each individual dollar worth less. This can stimulate the economy but at the cost of higher inflation. The Federal Reserve System handles the monetary policy that influences how money functions in the financial system and controls the target borrowing rate, “Fed rate,” which dictates interest rates in the economy. In 2020-2021, the Fed increased the money supply and lowered rates attempting to prevent a pandemic-driven recession.
