Kind of remind him it's important fish with a unit to restore its picking Kansas called gold Jewelers.

I think in any business relationships most. Important aspect cornerstone of success. And make tree tree client right and realize that they're the reason you're there. And it's tough for them you're not going to be long and early on I think. Business are now he's in good accountant. And and media networks millions and before them that they can in those two and get some advice those babies and things I would advise them. What about like ether in the count they often are forgotten people that they're important and bookkeeping is the Bane of the existence of many small business owners that. Two we have worked with neglect. Keep the books in order and it's and a shoe box Horry. Our glove compartment or a side pocket of a bag and at the end of the year they dump on somebody's desk and say here let's figure out my taxes just to live. Two way too late.

We've become so close to ease the godfather to my. Children. We get that. And so that that'll tell you we welcome relationship we have. Yeah I think he beat on the relationships is being one of the positives of the business I care what about you do you have any means that you think are important. There's made you made Hausa diamond successful. Over the years. Sides agree crafted illusion yeah. He just I mean if you're if you're in business and you're not doing things right it's in the catch up with the US news from an ethical standpoint from a you know just being a good business and the people. Yet how did you guys grow that's I don't know I'm curious about because he started with. Obviously you know in you did this you know family has been in this industry you're not a big company. How did you guys in a growing lute decides relationship you know obviously. Know what I know now about the industry are probably like back on prime when he tried. I was naive and I was. I was young and knows full of energy and if I can make us go and have a lot of folks tell me that I'm under capitalized on that location was terrible and I wonder if proven wrong and so forge forward and in every year we grew a little bit more in the community supports a little bit more in in here we are 24 years later. Fell on her and that's amazing that's at that that's very cool and in the name. I Uranus and your total us government and what I sure right things no piece of paper. And you know looking back I would've used my name alone means he's you know he's been good to hold power. Like some of you talking about Montreal like color and because. We're. Not sure I don't look at it fits it works I think your last name does ever intuit won't go that name I think would have been just as good. If you drop in the nose diamond industry dropping. The largest diamond ever discovered it was over so I think those kind destined to be. Industry. CN golden from what I want Kinnear your store I mean it's it's you have a lot of different things right take it oh yeah you actually offered store. Such as diamonds isn't just diamonds are what is it. Militants who it's about three of shall we were shown end. Sharma from bridal sets you know hundreds of Ronald substance fashion pieces. Colored shoes and beautiful colored south pars and rubies and so forth fashion jewelry. But we do engraving on site with. Can a computerized grieving equipment we do custom work we do with four acts of smell and prototyping machines and three printers. Our Kasyanov our models take place for the argon gas that computerized centrifuge. And got fine Jewelers on site that are going to make it and put it together. So would you welcome a jewelry store you see the front. It's it looks like maybe at most restores. My should pay attention to the quality product in the case that separates us of course it is. We give a lot of folks tour and and are you from the back of the shop and that's when the light bulb goes on with a lot of folks who. We should limit shopping they realized. These guys are actually making it we're not a minute to Chicago an accident in new York and sent to California. Make it right there are studio and. That's huge that's that the diverge here and there it is a lot of people custom is taking. A stop and mounting in putting together. Through custom we do is target management's sketch on a piece of paper it's. Adds. Pretty proud parents is Pasadena and that's residents say it's changed a lot probably your career. He has done this technology and it's changing your year I mean month in month aimed and you guys have all those capabilities. Of our Jeanne her right there and you never. Oh yeah technology. Aria. Dire three pretty machine on the web cider and information you share in the it and yet it's pretty cool. They can over these days I mean really pretty in in in customization I think as far as business I think is. In most industries are manufacturing ten become in the name of the game and what is differentiate yourself in. Exactly and our industry that's. That's an issue or industries it's CNN aging process includes a lot of jewelry stores are not gonna. It passed on generational like they have in the past and Jewelers the viewers love it all springs children and a woman in what continues beat. The jewelry business they're not a loose your searches or shrink if you don't differentiate yourself. By doing something different offers something different you're gonna. Probably not be around much longer and it's because that technology. Any guess have a lot of issues we try to think of it yet a lot of issues with. All these diamond and she's right that are going on in the world I mean there's all kinds of crisis is all of the times yet to be authentic. True and have great products meet his. I've I've opened the newspaper and seen. People buy things that they don't think of the right things so I think having no relation to content is because the long line. That's well understood why people how I can buy online and you know. And not see before they buy it and still trying to cut cost in Europe and distress. Well once ratified we'll do our efforts and there are but the ones who have been in field sometimes a by nick Mackie in because they want Karen to build peace ergo I'm one man. And we we have lecture from the made of stone they were looking at. People don't compare and a lot of times the questions asked how come your stone looks better than this one that's mostly the same on paper. In addition because it. Bath last this is nurses seats to the union mention that right relations the customer service Bryant in this industry. It's huge I mean I'd rather spend more money DOD a company like yours and by sending a month. Just because I know if something happens is like and call you up genie here and say guys what's going on. Like do we think they can't bat bat at. So. You know what have you learned that. As as you look back over 24 years investments. G chairman of or some lessons learned of things that. That you wouldn't recommend for young business owners to do or seasoned business owners to do along the way are just some some some some hardship she went through moment. I think one big thing is. In advertising. I think we went through a period of time we felt like we've been around long enough that we can. ABC back a little bit and end that are lower years of business coming Ellison perpetuate the business and doesn't happen that way you lose. You kind of lose sight here that's reason cited the pin after actively. Engaging in some of advertising and that was excellent. Over the past five years. And we want to open your fingers off which are notion that. Fresh warts and fresh faces. So we turn advertising again on the radio that's an old school of radio works but it works and start seeing folks we have seen for fifteen years commence on you know. About it. Larger voice and mean they have been in the C in that area I assume. Radio I would say. For any business you keep your face your name out there who. I was curious about what years did advertise I know I I as a child I not that. Young but I mean as a person growing up you can see I didn't hear your commercials cheese's has turned. Did your commercials Jean Karen I mean I remember the commercial. We've done magazines and billboards and moved on radio and real social media announce a new thing we are trying to get a grip on that and that's. I'm not I'm not all be it's tough it's tough but I think that you have shown yourself right we have. There was doom and incoming house from upload a little bit Scopes advertising and the guy does a remarkable job worsen. I wanna put my faith in him and they're just let inducing thing. We see secret results and as a business owner that most business owners to try to have a tendency to try to. To control when and try to has he just sit back relax with a curious when I do. It works. Of their business owners forget about brown we audit and control everything. And our business and auto and have a stamp it and dungy and a delegate yet of people popular you have to remember Michael Gerber has booked Jimenez. Said that there are three things you can be as a businesswoman who can be the entrepreneur in the visionary. You can be the manager or you can be the technical person who's during the work. And Mo and a lot of entrepreneur start out having to do all three. You have to promote the business you have to grow the company you have to manage everything you have to technically deliver the work at some point along the way you have to begin giving up along of those three impact wanna you wanna be Baskin and leave the other two to somebody else so if you manage it are you currently build up or you be the entrepreneurial vision that you can't do all three as you grow. If you will if you do it's what holds a lot of entrepreneurs back. From getting through that next level to achieve the next level of success is giving up that control finally somebody they can trust. And empowered to go out and that and really excel when those three areas. And then nova won their best at and that's what you do. And that's reroute and maybe for some tips for some business owners is is your knocked the CEO and you need to give that to somebody else to run. A London knights and continue to follow that that's been on my ancient trying to throw him on each other enough mixed this morning. You're city grill nation show we right back after.
