Kim Kardashian was a fan before his success on the reality show.

Aldo Orta’s designs had already found their way into the jewelry boxes of Kim Kardashian, Elizabeth Taylor and other Hollywood stars, but his career took another step forward after an appearance on ABC reality show “Shark Tank,” writes Forbes. The article explains that when he appeared on the show seeking funding to launch a mass-market jewelry line, he attracted sizeable bids from two of the “shark” investors, ultimately scoring a deal that allowed him to control 100 percent of his business. Since securing the investment, his sales have tripled, and he’s in the process of developing two new collections that are set to launch next year.

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.”
