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.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
