(PRESS RELEASE) NEW YORK — Jewelers of America, the national trade association for businesses serving the fine jewelry marketplace, has announced that Judi Holler will open the first annual Jewelers of America National Convention with her session “Fear is My Homeboy: 4 Ways You Can Transform Fear Into A Powerful Secret Weapon.” The Convention is focused on professional education beyond jewelry, with four keynotes and a choice of 12 Breakout Sessions covering all aspects of retail business. It takes place July 28-29, 2019, at the InterContinental New York Barclay in New York City.

In this fun and interactive session, Holler takes the experimental ideas she learned from improv theatre and helps participants apply them to the unscripted stage of everyday life. Her mission: To stop fear from stealing your joy and robbing you of opportunities to succeed the way you really want. She helps audiences transform fear into a powerful secret weapon so you can connect in even more powerful and profitable ways.

Participants will gain an understanding of fear’s greatest hits, how fear can help you, how to not be burdened by fear of failure and tools to help manage fear, personally and professionally. Holler will also share a five-step fear setting framework to help you take action and offer a sneak peek into the world of improv theatre.

Rather than running scared from fear, Holler has embraced it. An alumni of The Second City’s Conservatory in Chicago, she studied and performed improv theatre at night while working in sales and marketing full time by day. That experience shaped a new vision for success that she’s shared with audiences across the country as Founder and Chief Fear Boss of Holla! Productions.

Judi’s forthcoming book, Fear Is My Homeboy: How to Slay Doubt, Boss Up, and Succeed on Your Own Terms, comes out on May 28 and has been endorsed by best-selling author and media personality Mel Robbins, who called it “relatable, relevant and most importantly actionable!” Fear Is My Homeboy is available for pre-sale now on Amazon, 800 CEO Read and Barnes & Noble. The first 100 people to register for the convention will receive a complimentary copy. The convention agenda also includes the following keynote addresses: Election Outlook 2020, presented by Charlie Cook; Key Investment Trends to Watch, presented by Michael Vaknin of J.P. Morgan Private Bank; and Jewelry Customers’ Path to Purchase, presented by Neeraj Mehta of Synchrony.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
