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 Testimonials

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.”
