Between our “Work Smart” daily tips e-mail bulletins, our “Today’s To Do” and “Inspire Me Today” sections, plus regular blogs, you’ll leave our site with more useful ideas than you can handle.[/dropcap]

One example, from a September blog post (of mine):

“How important are bathrooms? I’m reading Tom Peters’ The Little Big Things: 163 Ways To Pursue Excellence.

“By ‘little big things,’ Peters is talking about the details of a business. He is saying that before you spend on a $500,000 redesign, first go for a $5 vase of flowers on a table.

“One great example is bathrooms. Customers remember bathrooms — the bad and the good. As a first ‘little big thing,’ get your bathroom right. Institute a procedure: Clean every morning. Check every hour. Make sure it smells nice. Add flowers. Hang pictures.”

Wilkerson Testimonials | MSG Jewelers

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
