I partially disagree with Jerad, respectfully of course

It depends.

I think a company should be a hybrid of products and services because in down economy people may stop buying your product however you could make up for the low revenue from the services subscriptions.

When everything is good you could sell a lot of products (without *working* that hard). For example you invest some time and create an information product which you can sell for the next several years.

The problem with the service is that you can't make money when you sleep.
