When do you deserve a vacation?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Hamm Homes

When do you deserve a vacation?

Yes, my business partner, Belinda Spillman and her husband, Craig, are headed out of town for a long overdue vacation.  With all the work that they both put in, they both need down time, of course Belinda always tells me that I take lots of vacation every year. After 16 years of being in this business, I take 4 weeks, that is about the same as if I was in the corporate world.

I am hoping that Belinda keeps her cell phone off, changes her message to tell people to call her business partner.  She needs to put her toes in the water and butt in the sand and chill out.

HAVE A RELAXING VACATION, CRAIG AND BELINDA.

There is nothing wrong with taking a vacation, anytime of the year.  The bottom line is how well you service your clients while on vacation.  If you are running a good business, it should run itself without you being in the way of it by having the correct systems in place, and personnel to assist clients when needed.

I am excited for the break. I woke Craig up at 3:49am and told him lets go. We are almost to las Vegas new Mexico. 460 miles to flagstaff at 9:51am. No problem. See you next week.

Will, Belinda is leaving with the business in very capable hands. We all need R & R to sustain the pace we keep.

The value of a partnership is the ability to totally recharge/be "off" when on vacation.

Good for them and we can't wait to see the pictures when they get back. I know I certainly need a vacation, but with all the kids' sports makes it a little hard.

Good for you giving yourself 4 weeks a year to reboot.  You can't be on your "A" game if you don't take time to recharge your batteries from time to time.

You need a trusted person if you are going to take any kind of extended time off.  For me I need to stay in contact just to ease my mind.

Hi Will - And what would you guess the odds are of Belinda leaving her phone off and not calling you to check in often? Very few good Realtors that I know are capable of just shutting everything off on vacation, but I hope she has a great and relaxing time.

You two are so funny and compliment each other so well...it is no wonder you both have such a successful Denver Colorado real estate business! Tell Belinda to have a drink for me ;)  ($5 that she finds time to make some blogs if Internet is available!)

Shannon,  I will not take that bet.  She took our IPAD with her, so I am sure she will do some blogs.
