Help Me Help You

Jerry Maguire. I’m not sure why, but today I was thinking
about the movie “Jerry Maguire” and some of the famous (or maybe
infamous) quotes from Jerry, the sports agent, that have become part of our
popular culture.  “Show me the
money!” for example. “Help me
help you.” “You’re a
paycheck player – you play with your head and not your heart.”   “I love you. You complete me.”  There are many more, but Jerry’s  language is sometimes too colorful for this family-friendly
Here is my favorite:  Jerry is talking to his
football-player/client’s wife and asks her “How can I make your life
better?”  That one stays with me
because at Ace Office Furniture Houston, we try to ask that question as often
as possible, of each other and of the clients we serve. How can we help the man
whose has been downsized from his large company find the right used high-end executive
desk for his new consultancy business? How can we help the employee who is
assigned the task of furnishing a dozen brand-new office spaces with desks,
chairs, credenzas, file cabinets, and accessories?  How can we help the expanding call-center add
cubicles to their existing set-up? 

“How can I make your life better?” Each one of our
sales staff want to know that before they help you search for furniture,
because your answers will help them know where to look. If we forget to ask,
please remind us.
