Ideas for Thanksgiving, Small Business Saturday and More Important Dates for November

22 Thanksgiving means it’s time to show appreciation. But this year, aim to make it last all year. Start with the obvious things — your family’s good health and work that keeps you engaged. Then start looking outward until you get to those truly insignificant trifles — the smell of fall in the air, the fragment of a nostalgic song. The psychologist Martin Seligman suggests a routine of writing two short emails each morning to friends, family or colleagues, thanking them for what they do.

13 Celebrate the 200th anniversary of the birth of John Montague, the Earl of Sandwich, who invented the sandwich to save time on eating during a gambling binge. Take inspiration: create a potluck schedule to ensure you and your staff are eating well throughout the holiday season.

24 For Small Business Saturday, print a T-shirt emblazoned with the Small Business Saturday logo. Take a picture of yourself wearing it. Post on social media.

25 30 days to go until Christmas. Launch a holiday countdown on the home page of your website. Highlight a “gift of the day.”

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.”
