Sales Truths: When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Go Fishing

WHY IT’S TRUE When times get tough, when it’s one of those days or weeks where nothing seems to be going right, the real pros take a break.

PLAN OF ACTION If the level of stress seems to exceed your ability to reasonably handle it, get away from it and do something you enjoy. In my case, I go to the driving range and hit a few balls. Whether it’s golf balls, fishing, or just going for a long walk around the block, you owe it to yourself to take some immediate downtime. Return in a much better frame of mind, and you’ll be amazed at your change of focus.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
