You just cain't be everywhere at once.

Real Estate Agent with Jameson Sotheby's International Realty

At some point in your illustrious career, (be you Realtor, Inspector, Appraiser, Lender) you're going to find yourself in need of being "away from your office".  When that happens, it's incredibly helpful to have quality folks back at the office to back you up.

I am fortunate that I have several seasoned agents who will happily cover for me, whilst I'm away.  They are well-trained, and handle their clients and their business with a similar work-ethic, so I feel comfortable (or at least as comfortable as I can get) leaving my clients in their care.

And conversely, when they are away, I happily function as their back-ups.

If you don't have such a relationship in your office, it would serve you well to develop those resources.

Try as you might, you just cain't be everywhere at once.

Good afternoon Alan. No one is indispensable and no one can do it all, all the time. Getting away is important.

It's always a good sign if you and your co-workers have that level of maturity and cooperation. Sadly, not all workplaces are that.
