I’m Stepping Down From Performancing

Many of you have probably noticed that I’ve not been blogging much at Performancing over the last few months. The fact of the matter is that a few events have conspired together to bring me to a point where I need to step down.

First, and most importantly, I’m about to become a dad. My wife and I actually made a trip to the hospital the other day (false alarm). Because I’m becoming a dad, the second reason gets compounded. I really don’t have the energy, even now, to put in 16 hour work days. So I’ve decided to start eliminating responsibilities.

James Mowery and Raj Dash will continue to make Performancing a great resource (they will do a much better job than I was able, with much more class and tact -> I’ve pissed a few too many people off).

I hope to stay in touch with everyone that I’ve met through Performancing and will continue to be a member of Hive (though now I will be a paying member).

Thanks for the great year everyone. I personally know that Performancing has many great things up its sleeve for the future.

I leave you all with this new video that I’m having produced over at RideLust (funny stuff):

  1. I just got here from FWJ, where Deb just admitted her selling-the-blog-to-James post was an April Fool’s joke. I didn’t fall for that one, and needless to say, I am not falling for this “announcement” either.

    Happy April Fool’s day, Ryan!

  2. You’ve made the right decision. Being a dad is one of the two most important jobs in the world. Being a mom is the other one. It may be difficult to step back from the fast track, but 16 hour work days just won’t co-exist peacefully with being a parent. It takes a truly understanding spouse to accept those kind of hours, but don’t ever try to make a child understand why Dad doesn’t have time to be a real dad. The time to get in training for being a good dad is from the get go. Have fun in your new role. You’ll never regret becoming a father.

    Best wishes,

  3. Not sure becoming a dad is something to be taken lightly, so I assume this is for real.

    Anyway, all the best Ryan and good luck!

  4. Wow, that car commercial is spot on for some of the crap local commercials we have around here. Good stuff.

    Good luck on upcoming daddy-hood!

  5. Ryan Caldwell is probably the best thing that happened to Performancing in 2007. You did a fantastic job mate.

    Good for you to take time off – family first, as they say.

    See you in Hive 😉
