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.

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!”
