People don’t like to be sold, but they love to buy!” So says best-selling, award-winning author, creative writer and speaker Jeffrey Gitomer, who was the keynote speaker at the semi-annual conference of the Independent Jewelers Organization held recently in San Antonio, Texas. Gitomer has authored nine books, all of which have appeared on major best-seller lists nationwide more than 750 times. His “Little Red Book of Selling” is credited as the number one sales book ever and is listed as one of the 100 best business books of all time.
Terry and Jane Leary of Smith Jewelry in Brookhaven were in attendance in San Antonio and found the speaker to be inspiring.
“Gitomer makes no bones about telling it like it is,” Leary stated. “Although his style can be somewhat controversial, a perfect description of him as quoted on his website is ‘he is totally awesome.’ Jeffrey is a leader in the field of sales and customer service and his presentation, as well as his philosophy, had a very positive impact on all in attendance.”
Smith Jewelry is the exclusive Master IJO Jeweler in the Brookhaven area, and Leary attends two educational and buying conferences each year, presented by IJO in cities all over the country.
“By being the Master IOJ Jeweler in this area I’m able to offer the quality, integrity and trust my customers deserve, as well as the finest product on the market and the knowledge to go along with it,” Leary continued.
Smith Jewelry is located at 105 W. Cherokee St. in Brookhaven.
