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.”)

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.”
