The Hammock in the Loft … and More Jeweler Habits

Published

on

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.”)

Wilkerson Testimonials

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

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
