What is going to stop it? As long as it has that specific receptor for the hormone on the plasma cell membrane, then it will endocytose into the cell and proceeds to its signaling cascades (either in the cytoplasm or directly to the nucleus).

one could imagine e.g. insulin and epinephrine working at a time ;)

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
