IN TODAY’S VIDEO, Gene the Jeweler is kind enough to divulge his techniques for closing a sale.

Unfortunately, the only thing you’ll probably learn from the fictional Gene is how not to do business. Does he ever actually close any sales? With his approach, you have to wonder.

And his staff members have some, shall we say, interesting techniques of their own.

And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
