Mark Twain

30 Noting that he’d been born the same year that Halley’s Comet had last visited, Mark Twain predicted he’d die on its return. “The Almighty has said, no doubt: ‘Now here are these two unaccountable freaks; they came in together, they must go out together.’” And he was right. And, as always, he was funny in his acerbic way. For Twain, humor wasn’t some optional extra. It was the key to a good life. On the 185TH ANNIVERSARY OF TWAIN’S BIRTH, keep that in mind as you enter the craziest four weeks of the year.

7 DEAR SANTA WEEK starts today, and few wish-list formats work better than Dear Santa. Get one up on your website along with some links to gift ideas.

17 Inspired by Jimmy Kimmel, NATIONAL UNFRIEND DAY urges you to take an honest inventory of your friends list and eliminate those who aren’t true friends. Spend time with the people who matter.

Retirement, Anniversary or Going Out of Business Sale? Let Wilkerson Handle the Details

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
