What I’ve Learned: Jerry Lindsey

Make it about the joy

Jerry Lindsey, Jerry Lindsey Custom Jewelry, Franklin, TN


I do what I do, because I love to see the joy on my customer’s face when handed a new piece of jewelry. It’s not about the money. It’s not about my reputation. It’s about that customer, standing in front of me, at that moment. That joy is why I do it. It’s why I get up before the crack of dawn, to come in and cast platinum. It’s why I carry my laptop home at night so I can easily design a ring for a new customer. That’s why I create jewelry and then take it apart and re-do it so I can create the perfect piece. I’ve learned that when I tried to make it about the money, jewelry became a job. And that’s not fun. Life is too short to concentrate on numbers or attracting new customers. When I make it about the joy, my excited customers tell their friends and new people come to me.

Wilkerson Testimonials | Sollberger’s

Going Out of Business Is an Emotional Journey. Wilkerson Is There to Make It Easier.

Jaki Cowan, the owner of Sollberger’s in Ridgeland, MS, decided the time was right to close up shop. The experience, she says, was like going into the great unknown. There were so many questions about the way to handle the store’s going-out-of-business sale. Luckily for Cowan, Wilkerson made the transition easier and managed everything, from marketing to markdowns.

“They think of everything that you don’t have the time to think of,” she says of the Wilkerson team that was assigned to manage the sale. And it was a total success, with financial goals met by Christmas with another sale month left to go.

Wilkerson even had a plan to manage things while Covid-19 restrictions were still in place. This included limiting the number of shoppers, masking and taking temperatures upon entrance. “We did everything we could to make the staff and public feel as safe as possible.”

Does she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers thinking of retiring, liquidating or selling excess merchandise? Absolutely. “If you are considering going out of business, it’s obviously an emotional journey. But truly rest assured that you’re in good hands with Wilkerson.”
