What I’ve Learned: John Morgan

Luck isn’t something you run into, it’s something you make.

John Morgan, John Morgan Ltd. Fine Jewelers, Grand Haven, MI

After 33 years in the retail jewelry world, I think the most important thing I’ve learned is that we make a lot of our own luck. It’s a lesson I’d like to think could be learned in most any field; that hard work, a little courage, careful contemplation of our choices and equally careful reflection on the decisions we’ve made, combined with a genuine regard for the people around us, creates much of the opportunity that others think of as just luck of the draw — or even worse, as something they’re naturally entitled to, but somehow unjustly denied — rather than as the hard-earned shot at success it really is.

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.”
