I got in way way to much over my head this year between the radio show, elite retreat, Seo Class plus I am already committed to speaking at 9 different conference events still in 2007.

I also am in charge of 4 corporations and 1 (maybe 2 soon) LLC’s and one that JUST got off the ground (auctionads) so mix in all these things and basically its just not possible to do a awesome job with all of them. Anyone who knows me knows that I do not like to do anything half ass and well when I cant do something correctly I would rather let someone else step in who can.

To be able to do SEO Class I was going to have to spend 1 day flying from San Francisco (on the last day of the Elite Retreat) to NYC (5:30 hours air time) then fly back home the next day.

Last week I was slacking on what was delegated to me and droped the hint that if someone else was interested in taking over my slot that that may be best. Today we had a meeting and they have someone great in place to step in and fill my spot.

This is the first engagement I have ever had to see if I could back out of and I am not comfortable with it. I wish these guys the best. I think its going to be a great conference.

  1. Sometimes it is better to let people down by backing out rather than let people down even more by doing a bad job. I am sure everyone will understand 🙂

  2. man I know what you mean, sometimes you need to stop and take account of what you are doing.. I’m sure that seoclass will be a success without you, they have great names their,

    unless of course this is just all link bait .. JK

  3. Think you can roll back through San Antonio and hook me up with some private sessions? Actually, I’ll just let some others know you’re coming and then charge them. =P

  4. It’s hard for someone who is that gung ho about doing a good job to take a step back and realize when they’re overstretched… I know I’ve made the mistake of doing something not at 100% just to do it and not back out, but ultimately backing out is better for everyone.

  5. I’ll only be pissed if we don’t get a chance to catch up for a few beers in NYC;) Sucks when things don’t work out – but glad you were able to bow out gracefully. We appreciate ya takin’ the time you did – keep up the great work with everything else.

  6. You can only do some many things at a time. You probably could use a good vacation from the tech world.

    Go somewhere that isn’t for business or just shut off the computer for a few days. You could hire an assistant to check up on the important things.

  7. Never good to back out but i am sure they understand, and with them having someone to fill in, in your place I am sure the class will be a success.

  8. I have to do a lot of work also, and it finally is warm where I live. I want to do so many things!

  9. WEll Shoe it is always better to do those things that you can do to perfection. And i am still learning that art.

    It is so nice of you to step-out and oblige someone else who is willing and have the potential to do this job. At the end it is the audience who will benefit from this.

  10. Seems to be somewhat of a standard in this industry to split ones efforts among many ventures. I’ve wondered what you would be able to accomplish if you focused your efforts onto one thing, instead of spreading yourself out among so many things.

  11. It’s always best to stay focused on your core business don’t spread yourself too thin. Maintain your heading!

  12. I relate. Its easy to spread yourself too thin, but at least you know it. The worst is having to tell people you respect that you just can’t do it..

    I’ve done it before, and it didnt sit well with me either 🙂

    But hey – look on the bright side – more time for your blog now ! (kidding) 😉

  13. I’m pretty sure this falls into the “best to do a few things great than to do a lot of things poorly.” Good call… if you can’t give your best then it’s best not to give at all.

  14. If you chase two rabbits, both will escape.

    With multiple rabbits, you’re going to need an awfully big net. 🙂

  15. I still say that since you say you’re not an SEO, this was a funny class for you to be involved in. I’m sure you would have had lots of good info. This will just leave more of the good stuff for NPMMO. 🙂

  16. […] : Looks like Jeremy Schoemaker has had to pull out, due to conflicting calendar issues. The good news is that Brad Geddes (ewhisper) is stepping […]

  17. It is good that you know your limits. But I think that you have to be working more than 24h a day… do you have some vacation?
