Zen Jeweler: Go Ahead, Swing the Club

Parables by Jeff McCandlessBusiness, like golf, requires a delicate balance of attention. 
 
 
And sometimes, the deliberative process can hurt you more than it helps. If you stand over the golf bag too long, wondering what the perfect club is, your opponents, who have been switching from club to club, practicing their swings and talking to their caddies, have learned more about which club to use than you have. Don’t give your opponents too much time to practice. The longer you stand still, the more unsure you become. Take a club, make a mistake, learn from it, and your next club will be the right one. 
 
 
Oh, and don’t do what I’ve seen too many people do: They keep picking the same club, their ?go-to? club, the one that keeps them from ever learning to use the other clubs.

Wilkerson Testimonials

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.”
