WHEN WE LAST met Gene the Jeweler, we learned that he doesn’t really train his staff.

We now bring you the next installment of the Gene series, which was created by industry consultant Jimmy DeGroot. (The series is kind of like a jewelry version of The Office.)

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic
