“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].

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
