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.  
 
 
THE TAKEAWAY: Bring versatility to your game.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
