Sales Truths : Put a Fork in Me …
I’m Done!

BY DAVID RICHARDSON

Published in the May 2013 issue.

WHY IT IS TRUE: You survived Christmas, went through Valentine’s Day, made it nearly to Mother’s Day, not to mention numerous birthdays and anniversaries … and you keep telling yourself: Get a Life!

PLAN OF ACTION: The only way to really get a life is to get away. Get away from everything, your store, your great staff, your marketplace, your customers etc. Forget researching diamonds and gemstones online. Instead, research great vacation destinations that would help you dramatically relieve the tension, which is certainly manifesting itself in you and your great staff. Get away from your store, your business, and everything that at this moment is really important in your life. Grab your spouse or a good friend (preferably not both), check out some desirable vacation destinations, and do something you haven’t done in years. Go, get away, relax, smell the flowers, recharge your batteries and come back prepared to attack the upcoming season with a vengeance. You will be glad you did. — DAVE RICHARDSON

Celebrate Your Retirement with Wilkerson

For nearly three decades, Suzanne and Tom Arnold ran a successful business at Facets Fine Jewelry in Arlington, Va. But the time came when the Arnolds wanted to do some of the things you put off while you’ve got a business to run. “We decided it was time to retire,” says Suzanne, who claims the couple knew how to open a store, how to run a store but “didn’t know how to close a store.” So, they hired Wilkerson to do it for them. When she called, Suzanne says Wilkerson offered every option for the sale she could have hoped for. Better still, “the sale exceeded our financial goals like crazy,” she says. And customers came, not only to take advantage of the going-out-of-business buys and mark-downs, but to wish a bon voyage to the beloved proprietors of a neighborhood institution. “People were celebrating our retirement, and that was so special,” says says.
