Galentine’s Day, Leap Year Day and More Big Dates for February

And it’s time to “get up” for National Get Up Day.




Galentine’s Day, Leap Year Day and More Big Dates for February

1 It’s National Get Up Day – a day devoted to, yes, getting back after a fall. And we’ve had a few downs in the last few years. Megan Crabtree, Crabtree Consulting, urges you to “have all of your team members write an inspiring Post It note and stick it in the backroom” to help them get up for the year ahead.

13 With every new year, the public show of affection that is at the raw pumping heart of Valentine’s Day seems to expand, from good causes (Red Wear events) to the less so (Valenswine’s Day for mistresses). Among the newer events is Galentine’s, a day dedicated to showering your besties with love, and small gifts. Get in on the heartwarming action this year with a gift gallery and fun suggestions.

22 The research is unambiguous: Multitasking not only doesn’t work, it impairs productivity. On Single Tasking Day, let your brain do what it’s been designed so beautifully to handle – focus on one thing at a time: One conversation, one task, one meal, one baseball game.

29 On Leap Year Day, so goes the traditional belief, women can propose marriage to men. Make sure all eligible single women in your market are aware of this semi-state secret. Offer discounts to those leaplings who have the fortune or misfortune to have been born on this calendar anomaly. Get out your frog-oriented promotions and encourage those customers with wavering boyfriends to take a leap of faith.



Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
