“Great idea! Write it down.”

WHEN TO USE IT? You’re in a staff meeting, and people keep on piping up with ideas that move the discussion in the wrong direction. This phrase will help you get back on track while also showing respect for the employee’s contribution. Build a repertoire of such sayings: e.g. “Definitely something to consider. Note that!”

Why This Fourth-Generation Jeweler Chose Wilkerson for a Very Special Sale

Parian & Sons of Franklin Lakes, NJ was founded in the early part of the 20th century. But even stores that have successfully made it through the Great Depression, a World War and the Woodstock Generation must come to an end. With no family wanting to continue the tradition, the time was right for Glenn Parian and his wife, Maria, to retire. And what better way to do so than by hiring Wilkerson to help with the store’s liquidation sale. As Glenn puts it, with his credit card machine humming to the tune of up to 200 transactions a day, he couldn’t have done it without Wilkerson. “This is what they do,” he says. “This is what they do for everybody.”
