In The Positioning Manual for Technical Firms, my short book on positioning your development shop, I talk about several fears you will face as you narrow your focus.

Will we be stuck in a boring job that we created for ourselves and crying ourselves to sleep on $500 bedsheets? Will we be doing the exact same set of activities day in and day out for our clients?
