SaaS is an acronym potion that affects everybody a little differently
I am a fan of the Professional Services bundle. I also like services that are unbundled.

Reviews, celebrity interviews and NSA surveillance chatter had me expecting a great movie.

“bluster doesn’t win games’, good play wins games” Talking smack and having swagger won’t win games, in fact it will antagonize your opponent to play at their very best. Rigid adherence to a real, considered strategy, pattern recognition and a comprehension of the ‘total’ game wins, or as there is some luck element to the game, will significantly increase your likelihood of winning.
Building too much code: With so much great code already out there, some entrepreneurs just wanna write – when its not needed and down the road will significantly inhibit progress. They expect that their product and the market is flexible. If they make an error in sequence it can be repaired en route, like fixing a flat while driving. The reality is that it is entirely inelastic, particularly in mature markets like professional services with entrenched leaders and quick outliers who aren’t making mistakes.
