“WHO DOESN’T LOVE a good underdog story?” asks Kyle Bullock at the start of the latest episode of Over the Counter.

We absolutely agree. That’s why we think you’ll love this particular underdog tale — of a 17-year-old high-school student who had to step up and run his family’s struggling jewelry store after his father died of cancer.

Learn the identity of this very special jeweler, and hear his story, in this month’s podcast.

Also, don’t miss the bonus episode in which Kyle talks with Andrea Hill of Hill Management, a jewelry industry management consultant, about what jewelers most need to do (and how they need to think) when facing the toughest of times.

Kyle Bullock is a fourth-generation jeweler who manages Bullock's Jewelry in Roswell, NM. He is also a best selling author, speaker and performer, and small business coach. To contact him, email him at [email protected].

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.”
