Zen Jeweler: Challenge Yourself Every Day

Published

on

 

WHEN YOU GET up in the morning, and the store is behind last year’s figures, and the competition is moving in across the street, and you’re the owner, you blame the manager. If you’re the manager, you blame the economy or the sales staff. If you’re the sales staff, you blame the owner. It’s a vicious circle.

 

Start pointing the finger at yourself. If you’re the owner, you must be missing some marketing or merchandising strategies. If you’re the manager, you probably aren’t asking the sales staff for opinions. If you’re the sales staff, are you communicating where inventory is missing, or that clients aren’t finding what they want?  

If you look around, you may see people who have reached a level of contentment.  

Challenging yourself is mandatory. If you are tired of the challenge of selling for a living, or managing, or owning a business, sell it. Get out.  Take on something less challenging.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
