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.”

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 KyleRBullock@gmail.com.

He Thought It Was a Great Time to Retire — So He Called Wilkerson!

As David Kiselstein, owner of J. Albert Johnson Jewelers in Fairfield, CT says, it was a perfect time to close the store he’d owned for 45 years. “I’m 72-years old, the lease came due and I thought it would be a great time to retire.” A savvy businessman and one of the founders of the Continental Buying Group, Kiselstein urges others who want to conduct a retirement sale to pick up the phone and call Rick Hayes at Wilkerson. “He’ll talk you through it. He’ll help you understand it. He’ll give you the confidence you need to go through such a big experience.”

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.
