About us

Our Mission


Best Times focuses its practice on the serving leaders of communities. Serving leaders are those people who work for a greater purpose than themselves, elevate people around them, build upon the strength of others, and blaze the trail to accomplish what needs to be done.

Our clients have busy lives. Their focus and passion are not on their wealth, but rather on taking care of their families and the community around them.

Our role at Best Times is to devise and implement creative design ideas in the areas of estate planning, investment strategies, business succession planning, and financial independence. We also help coordinate our clients’ other advisors and act as the catalyst to get things done. Clients look to our team as their “quarterback” who will guide them through the eventual changes that happen in life.
