The Hammock in the Loft … and More Jeweler Habits

For a decade’s worth of Januarys, we’ve kept you focused on your habits.

Beginning positive ones, performing them consistently, and making them a part of your routine forever. Identifying bad ones, eliminating them, and never again lapsing.

Over the years, we’ve kicked off fresh-slate season with “Life Lifts”, business resolutions, even more business resolutions, and something very, very different.

In this January’s edition of INSTORE, we come at habits from a different angle — asking a few dozen of our favorite jewelers what habits are helping them achieve success, and what habits may be keeping them from it.

The story is inspirational and informational. Not to mention funny, as when Chuck Kuba of Iowa Diamonds discusses his favorite habit (“I am notorious for not giving up. It took me 24 years to finally get my undergraduate degree”) or when Brett Weiler’s mentions his least (“I have a loft in the back of my store. And in that loft, I have a hammock. You can see where this is going. I have gotten over the guilty feeling of taking a nap at work.”)

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
