His colt, Mor Spirit, has a real shot at winning the Kentucky Derby.

Michael Lund Petersen – the founder of Pandora Jewelry who’s credited for devising its marketing strategy – is shifting his attention to the horse track and his young colt, Mor Spirit, who’s being primed to compete in the Kentucky Derby, the Courier-Journal writes. The article says that Peterson, a “rookie” horseman, has recently scaled back his commitments to Pandora, where he currently remains a senior adviser. "They don’t need my advice anymore,” he said. “They’re doing just fine. Now I have time to do this.”

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
