I’m now recognizing in the very near future, I will become a bottleneck. Biz dev, keeping the blog going, talking with press, clarifying requirements, etc. is taking up more time than we expected. That means I’m not doing the SaaS research I need to. This will be a problem.

I raised the issue with the team and the proposed mitigations (in order of preference) are:

  1. Find an additional team member to help drive the SaaS research I was going to own.
  2. Pull someone off dev work to help on the research front
  3. Decrease the amount of time I dedicate to this blog (which means we wouldn’t get to share interesting problems like this)
  4. Do less SaaS research

I’m chugging away to pound out a solution – will keep you posted.
