IN THE LATEST EPISODE of Over the Counter, host Kyle Bullock tells the story of one of the most memorable custom-design sales of Sandra Locken of Sarini Fine Jewellery in Vulcan, Alberta, Canada.

In the heartbreakingly beautiful tale, Sandra is assigned a rush job for a woman dying of terminal cancer, whose passion in her final days (and even her final minutes) is creating jewelry memories for her family.

Kyle concludes: “Remember that what we do in the jewelry business goes far beyond little hunks of metal. We are invited to share in the expression of people’s hearts and souls in a very real, very emotional, and very honest way.”

Enjoy the story. (And have those tissues ready.)

IN THIS MONTH’S Over the Counter, we’re bringing you a collection of stories aimed at reminding you of what is most important in life.

It is so easy to go day by day, nose to the grindstone, that we lose sight of what matters.

In fact, we may start to believe that what we are doing at work is what is most valuable — that our identity comes from work, or wealth, or from accomplishments.

And the truth is, it doesn’t.

Today’s episode is just one attempt to show you what the word “value” really means. (And it means different things to different customers.)

P.S. If you’ve been enjoying Over the Counter, Kyle Bullock has launched a new series on YouTube about pursuing growth, leadership, and celebrating what matters the most. It’s called the “Brilliantly Inspired Channel”. Visit this new source of weekly motivating and educational videos on YouTube.

THIS MONTH, Over the Counter shares the story of one of the more poorly planned, under-rewarding diamond heists you’ll ever hear about. Let’s let host Kyle Bullock set up the episode: “When you sell valuable things, it’s not a matter of if, but when, a criminal will try to steal something from your cases, which is why safety and preparation should always be a top priority for jewelry stores. But in today’s story, the crime in question took place not in a jewelry store, but in a place that features even more unique and irreplaceable set of valuables. It also features a criminal who could have used, uh, a few tips before pulling off the heist of a lifetime.”
