GENE THE JEWELER always seems to find the least effective approach possible for handling a given area of his business.

And in many cases, the issue is not so much in what he’s doing, but what he’s not doing.

In today’s video, we learn about a couple of realms where Gene really should have processes set up. Namely, sales methodology and accounts payable.

But Gene isn’t taking an organized tack at all.

Staff members use their own sales approaches.

“Everybody has kind of their own method,” says Gene, a fictional character created by jewelry marketing specialist Jimmy DeGroot.

In terms of vendors, “We pay when we have to,” Gene says. He generally comes up with the money only after the company calls him.

It seems like a chaotic way to run a store, and a hard way to make a profit.

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.”
