When is too much, too much? with Jaime and Sara | Live with Bottleneck: A Week in Review

On this episode of Live With Bottleneck: A Week In Review, Jaime and Sara talk about when is too much, too much. Sara says that it’s too much when you feel overwhelmed, when you’ve done everything but it still feels like something is missing.

Join Jaime and Sara live every Friday at 10am CT for this special edition of Live with Bottleneck: A Week In Review. They talk about the week that passed and the challenges that they’ve faced, as well as implementation of things for the future of the company and for the viewers.

When Is Too Much, Too Much

Sara compares being, feeling, and having too  much on your plate to trying to give a gift to someone who has everything. When it feels like there’s nothing you can give that person, you just give them a bottle of wine.

Jaime says that it’s too much when something starts interfering with your passion. It gets too much when it starts to interfere with the reason why you are doing things. When it takes you down a path that you can’t sustain, and it feels like it’s overwhelming, it is too much.

Too much varies per person. For one, it may seem like not a lot, but for someone else, it may already be too much. The way to figure out if something is already too much is to take a step back and look at how tired you are.

What Happened This Week

Jaime and Sara’s friend Levi started a second business and he felt that getting things moving feels like too much.

On the Bottleneck side of things, Sara is working with Gordon on a side venture with Bottleneck, and if Gordon didn’t keep Sara on track, she would have been lost.

Levi is helping Jaime manage things by writing a list and prioritizing what should be prioritized. Jaime has learned to focus on the top three, and by doing the easy one first, it helps him gain momentum to doing the hard part.

On other things, Jaime was able to talk with a customer, an agency owner from Milwaukee. They will be doing a case study about Bottleneck helping agencies. They’ve also engaged Phil Singleton for SEO and have learned a lot along the way.

What’s Coming Up

The new website is in beta mode, and hopefully in July, all the bugs will be gone and the little tweaks that the team has made will sort out these bugs.

Clients will be able to filter out candidates on the new website. Jaime and the team will be updating the tags as well so that people will be able to find assistance quicker. They are also preparing for the 3rd quarter. There will be six or seven areas that will be identified as objectives, to be rolled out on the 5th of July.

There will be a lot of planning and documenting. There will be a partnership program with Dave Stobe, and an SEO campaign with Phil Singleton is stepping up.Lawrence, the new account executive, will be working on outbound sales and outreach in the following week.

To hear more from Jaime and Sara, and when is too much, too much, continue listening to this episode.

About Jaime Jay

Meet Jaime Jay – a man who wears many hats, and wears them all admirably. He's a master connector, an entrepreneur extraordinaire, and a published author who knows how to get things done.

Before he found his way to the business world, Jaime served his country as a brave paratrooper in the U.S. Army. But that's just the beginning of his many accomplishments.

He's the founder of the renowned Bottleneck Distant Assistant Services firm, and his book "Quit Repeating Yourself" has become a must-read for entrepreneurs everywhere.

When he's not busy building his empire, you can find him on his beloved Harley Davidson, cruising through the countryside and taking in the invigorating effects of Uitwaaien – a Dutch practice that involves facing the wind to boost health and relieve stress.

He enjoys spending his free time outside building stuff with his wife, Nikita the dog and their two kittens (for now at least) Tommy and Tater.

He is ‘over-the-moon’ happily married to his wonderful wife Sara, his amazing daughter, Jessica, who is serving our country as a United States Army soldier. Jaime and Sara are the proud grand parents of two beautiful little girls.
