As a jeweler, it’s easy to feel like a pinball, constantly bouncing from task to task, from customer to customer, says marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot. 

In the video below, he explains that business owners too often get caught up in the immediate, the necessary, the urgent.

It’s crucial to take time to “think about your ideal situation for you and your jewelry store,” he says.

“Picture yourself at your happiest and what that looks like,” DeGroot continues. “Now picture your store. Maybe the volume that it’s doing … the profitability … your team being very successful. Or is there a store at all? Maybe it’s you retired or even doing something you’ve always wanted to do but never had the time.”

DeGroot provides an exercise to help jewelers focus on the big picture.

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.”
