I think most partners are eager to get back to work because they have fancy offices with great views. Meanwhile I dread hoteling in, and usually never get a spot so i have to work out of a meeting room where I'm kicked out every 3 hours or out of the cafeteria.

I’m convinced it’s because they’re sick of being around their families, and use it as an excuse to get away. “Sorry honey, I wish I could, but I got to go into the office to dial into calls all day long and look busy”

Most of the Partners I know hotel or share office space. The reality is that it’s simply a lot easier to build team cohesion and client relationships when we’re in person.

Partners, MDs, and even SMs/Directors are concerned about our books of business. In most cases it’s nothing to do with fancy offices or micromanaging.

I currently work in Marketing for a residential construction company. One of my main responsibilities is networking with realtors & lenders (planning events, coordinating office presentations, etc.) in order to network with them so they will bring their clients to our sales team. I’ve realized I can make a lot more money working in insurance as an insurance broker focused on realtors & lenders. I would love to hear the good, the bad, the ugly, of working in insurance + any tips you can share!
