Why Are Turtles Important to Us?

Slow and steady wins the race. This proverb was often used by Best Times Financial founder, Jack Best, as he taught clients that careful planning and steady, consistent progress is the key to reaching financial freedom. 

The turtle is a symbol of:


Today, the turtle in our logo reminds clients that the key to success requires steadfast, forward-thinking perseverance. When visiting our offices, you’ll find over 3,000 turtles lining the walls as well thanks to our many clients, colleagues and friends.

Giving to Others

Helps Us Fulfill Our Greater Purpose

We believe all of our clients have a purpose. To realize their purpose, these community leaders must first confirm their own financial independence and that the legacy they leave to their heirs is assured.

We, along with our clients, believe much of our success is owed to the communities we have been nurtured in and inspired by.

This is where passion and purpose come together.

Many of our clients contribute to programs and communities that have benefitted them and share in their beliefs.

What you see below is the above put to action. Each of these charities has been impacted by the work done by the Best Times Financial community to make the world a better place.

Charities Our Clients Support Include:

Pipeline Worldwide

Pipeline worldwide is focused on helping people across Eastern Africa with a specific focus currently in Uganda. They do this through sustainable partnerships with local communities where through the community’s voice and priorities they support various initiatives including helping with access to clean drinking water, healthcare equipment and supplies, lack of power, food scarcity and shelter in their communities.

I first got introduced to Pipeline worldwide 6 years ago, in that time I have been able to travel with them 3 times, once to Kenya and two times to Uganda with the most recent being in April of 2021. In that time I have seen the type of impact a hand-up.

Landmark Society of Western New York

How are my investments working for me?

The Landmark Society of Western New York, Inc., is one of the nation’s oldest and most active historic preservation organizations. It is a not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to helping our region’s communities preserve and capitalize on their rich architectural, historical, and cultural heritage. The Landmark Society’s service area covers nine counties in western New York centered on the City of Rochester.

I returned to Rochester after a 32-year career in California. One of the major reasons for my choice to do semi-retirement here is that I could preserve a gracious older home & garden for posterity. I believe architecture is part of our shared heritage.
