Having been a consultant and owning my own company I can tell you there are some myths most everyone aspires to achieve.
Everyone, me included, want to get something fast, that is the best it can be, for cheap. The reality is you can only have two parts of that equation without astronomical prices and more than likely parting out your end-solution. Honestly why would you pay more for a piece of your total solution if it still doesn’t bring the whole thing to market? It’s one thing if it’s the “missing piece” and something else if it is just a part of the mess that isn’t ready yet.
However, to restate the reality,
Fast service Cheap won’t be Great
Great service Cheap won’t be Fast
Great service Fast won’t be Cheap
