My clients are really smart. And fun! Here’s proof.

Years ago, I had the pleasure to work with Rochelle Jacobson, President of N. Merfish Supply and her team in Houston, Texas. (Rochelle retired as President in 2012. And in 2019, Merfish Pipe & Supply and United Pipe & Steel combined under Merfish Pipe Holdings, an entity majority owned by One Equity Partners.)

Long before Rochelle’s retirement, I received an invitation from her. The following, is verbatim language:

Send-off party Friday!

Please join us in the downstairs conference room to say goodbye to…Status Quo!

Those of you who have been around for a while, know what Status Quo has meant to this place. Through all the ups and downs, Status Quo was always there. So let’s raise a glass Friday, November 3, 2000 and wish Status Quo good luck.

Things just won’t be the same around here.

So how will you say

√ Sayonara to Status Quo

√ Adios to the way it has always been

√ Fuh-ged-about itif you’ve done it that way before

Remember, life and business are a lot like the organic world, you can either wither and die—or grow and prosper!

Toss a fiesta to your future!
