Putting an End To Gemmelsmerch

Here’s a new word for you: gemmelsmerch.

Gemmelsmerch is the force that distracts a person from what he or she wants to or ought to be doing. And it is as pervasive and powerful as gravity. Sources of gemmelsmerch include email, texts, phone, magazines, mail, cell phones, TV, mess in your office — essentially anything that distracts you from the task at hand.

Solutions to gemmelsmerch include software that keeps you away from websites that cause you problems, noise-cancelling headphones that allow you to concentrate on your work, a closed and locked door, a phone set to silence and no vibration.

Your job today: reduce the gemmelsmerch around you. And yes, right now, your faithful blogger is drowning in gemmelsmerch, hence the brevity of today’s blog post.

Thinking of Retirement? This Jeweler Went for the Company That Shares His Values

Richard Frank of Goldstein’s Jewelry in Mobile, Ala., had worked in his family’s store since he was 13-years old. As its owner, he was proud to be at the helm of Mobile’s oldest jewelry store, an AGS, IJO and RJO member business. But there comes a time in every jeweler’s life when a decision must be made regarding the future. And for Frank, that meant turning the store over to new owners. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale, a decision, he says, made a long time ago. “Their reputation is such that all the things we value are what they value,” he says. And the results surpassed Frank’s own expectations. Would he recommend Wilkerson for other jewelers who are considering a going-out-of-business or retirement sale? “If you’re contemplating a sale to maximize the return on your business, there is no one else in the industry that I could even think of recommending.”
