Boris Mann did a presentation at CodeCore's Week 7 on why even though making product is hard you should be trying to move past hour-based billing. He covered the importance of productizing your services, investing in them and why companies cannot be outsourcing the products they do create.

Boris is the founder and managing partner of Full Stack, a "napkin capital" angel investment firm that works with and funds early stage technology companies.

By Boris Mann page 3 of 15 From Services To Product Jason Cohen, @ASmartBear "Most consulting companies don’t make much profit, and it’s one in a thousand that has the discipline to launch a successful product during off-hours. If you’re going to make it happen, you yourself need to be serious, disciplined, and relentless. But you can do it. And if you do, you’ve just self-financed a startup, made a nice living, mitigated much of the risk of product- only startups, and built a great team in the process" The unfortunate math behind consulting companies - http://blog.asmartbear.com/consulting-company-accounting.html
