He’s set his eyes to 125 years in the future.

Though it may not happen in our lifetimes, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is already planning for the eventual end of his company, as the Puget Sound Business Journal explains. The article says that information was learned during a tour of the company’s high-rise campus in Seattle, the centerpiece of which is a “sphere-shaped conservatory rising.” During the tour, Amazon’s facilities director John Schoettler explained how Bezos, as the campus was being planned, said he wanted to build “something really special, something really iconic.” And that’s when the idea for the conservatory was conceived.

Schoettler retold the exchange with Bezos: “Jeff said to me, ‘John, opportunities like this come along once every 125 years. One hundred twenty-five years from now, when people have forgotten about Amazon …”

Schoettler added: “We don’t know how people are going to shop, or what the world is going to be like, but (Bezos) would like the bubble building to be standing – and standing the test of time – and have people recognize that Amazon was a very forward-thinking company.”

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
