SayAhh's revenue projections  

Brad Feld:

When I look at a startup's revenue projections, I don't pay much attention to the actual numbers for just that reason. However, I do look at the structure of the model to see if they really understand their business and are actively tracking their key business drivers.

Alternative view: the right answer isn't the numbers, it's the selection of metrics you believe are driving your business.
