After Coming to America With $200 in Her Pocket, Lafonn CEO Now a ‘Woman of Influence’
Molly Wang

Molly Wang, the CEO of Lafonn, was recently named a “Woman of Influence” in the Los Angeles area, an award from L.A. Biz recognizing her business prowess and mentorship of other young women. In a Q&A with the publication, she explains how she came to the United States with just $200 in her pocket, taking a job in car sales while she worked toward her degree from a local fashion design trade school. The rest, as they say, is history.

Wang has also lived with rheumatoid arthritis for more than 20 years and one day hopes to establish a foundation for young girls living with RA, according to a press release from Lafonn. “I want to show them that their dreams do not die even though they are diagnosed with RA; they can still pursue their dreams if they set their minds to it,” she says.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Zadok Master Jewelers

Stick to the Program — And Watch Your Sales Grow

When Zadok Master Jewelers in Houston, Texas, decided to move to a new location (they’d been in the same one for the 45 years they’d been in business), they called Wilkerson to run a moving sale. The results, says seventh-generation jeweler Jonathan Zadok, were “off the charts” in terms of traffic and sales. Why? They took Wilkerson’s advice and stuck to the company’s marketing program, which included sign twirlers — something Jonathan Zadok had never used before. He says a number of very wealthy customers came in because of them. “They said, ‘I loved your sign twirlers and here’s my credit card for $20,000.’ There’s no way we could have done that on our own,” says Zadok. “Without Wilkerson, the sale never, ever would have come close to what it did.”
