    For me, my biggest frustration was when my site got hacked. It killed my search engine rankings, traffic, and income. It's most of the way back now, but still have a ways to go. It took a long time to get back in the good graces of the search engines. It was all because someone was trying to siphon traffic off my site. I traced the hacker's IP address back to China, which ruled out any legal remedy I might have had available.

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

      You seem like a decent guy with a good head on your shoulders, but that location is going to make it harder, but not impossible, for you. Forge ahead, every onward!

      I think this is an absolutely fantastic attitude to have.

      My biggest frustration would have to definitely be time management. There's just way too much to get done, and very little time to do any of it. Sometimes I wish our bodies didn't need sleep!

        I would say traffic and conversion.

        For me, time management is self discipline and responsibility. You have to make your own schedule and keep to it.

    It's really a challenge to get it all together, but don't give up.

    For me it works to build small and simple processes in almost everything I do and it helps me to stay focused. I write down all my ideas so I don't have to "rethink" them over and over again.

    Just my 2 cents :-)
