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.

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.”
