Things You Must Do Daily: Bathing, and Sales Training

Overkill alert: I just spent almost an hour on a motivational post aimed at helping you explain to your sales staff why they should work on their sales skills every single day.

It’s overkill because all I really wanted to do was share a quote I came across the other day. Lucky for you I realized what a wind-bag I was before it was too late. You probably wouldn’t have made it to the end.

So — without further ado — here is the quote, from Zig Ziglar:

 

&#8220 People often say, ‘Zig, motivation doesn’t last.&#8217 And I say to them, ‘Bathing doesn’t either.’ That’s why I recommend it daily! &#8221

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
