Zen Jeweler: Get Perspective

on

Parables by Jeff MccandlessA man is walking to Samaria. On the way, he is beaten, robbed and left in a ditch. 
 
Later, two men, one a psychiatrist, the other a sociologist, find the man lying in the ditch. They are appalled. They look at each other and exclaim, ?Heavens! The person who did this to this man needs our help!? 
 
Let’s rewrite this for jewelers: 
 
A man walks into a jewelry store. He asks for a brand name. He is the 500th person to ask for it in two years. The owner looks at his sales manager and together, they exclaim, ?Heavens, the people looking for that brand don’t understand the value of fine jewelry! They need our help understanding the nature of value!? 
 
THE TAKEAWAY: It’s simple. Stop believing that the world revolves around your set of values. The world stopped using that system a while ago.

Maximize Every Sale with Wilkerson

When it’s time to run a sale, whether it’s a retirement, going-out-of-business, anniversary or “we’ve got too much merchandise” sale, let Wilkerson handle the details. The Diamond Galleria did just that when they selected Wilkerson to run its liquidation sale. According to Sharon, their CPA, it was the right choice. “We could have done a going-out-of-business sale ourselves and done 30 to 40 percent of what we actually sold with Wilkerson involved,” she says. Seeing the strategies that Wilkerson puts in place for every sale was something that convinced her they had made the right move. “I would highly recommend Wilkerson to anyone considering this type of sale.”
