Sales Truths : Failure Is Not Falling Down, But Staying Down

BY DAVID RICHARDSON

Published in the December 2011 issue.

WHY IT IS TRUE: Everyone is going blow a sale. In fact, if you are really a sales professional, you can expect to blow
many sales in your career. Selling is a business of successes and failures.

PLAN OF ACTION: If you blow a good sale, step back and carefully evaluate what just happened and why. If you can’t
get your mind around it, share your thoughts with a fellow staffer or even your manager. Put it behind you, and jump
into the next sale with passion and energy. After all, you are a pro! — DAVE RICHARDSON

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
