Our Services

Flexible Options

At Athena Wealth Strategies, we offer several ways for our clients to pay us directly for our financial advice depending on their situation and needs. We offer an hourly plan for clients who have one or two limited areas of concern and would like to get our analysis or opinion.

Right Track Consultation

The Right Track consultation is perfect for those who are just getting started with working and saving and who want to make sure they are setting up a sound foundation for themselves later in life.

Comprehensive Planning

Comprehensive planning – whether for a single person or a family – addresses both the current situation and the future in detail. We look into what can be expected to happen under your current trajectory and how the future could be impacted by the choices you make as well as the things out of your control. Risks that expose partners, children, and any other dependents will be taken into account as will your estate plan. Comprehensive plans also cover one year of follow up service, with renewal plans available to make sure you stay on track in the future.

Need a second opinion?

Working with someone else but want to make sure your current financial advisor is addressing your needs? We offer a second opinion service. In addition, because our planning fees charge you directly for the planning, you are not obligated to change any existing professional relationships to access our advice. We do offer implementation services for both investments and insurance (and help connect you to attorneys and other specialists for those portions of your plan) both after and in conjunction with the planning work when appropriate, but there is no obligation to implement through us.

Fees vary based on the planner you partner with as well as the complexity of your situation, but the below descriptions provide a guideline of our starting rates.
