    Balancing passive and active income. It's great to make a full-time living, but when you have no backup and no health insurance, you gotta start planning for emergencies and time off and travel...

      Time - I go to U of M full time (even through the summer) and I never would have guessed how much time it would chew out of my day.

      I only have about 2.5 - 3 hrs to work on my online business. That's not a lot of time when you need to drop blog comments for links, make niche forum posts for links, spin an article for distribution, and post some content on the site itself (with properly formatted Title, H1, Desciption, Images, and Meta Keywords) so that there is always something new there.

      Three hrs blows by just dropping blog comments.

        Although this is decent for some short term traffic, you're not going to build a business by leaving comments on blogs. Outsource that!

      I've not outsourced for a while...

      ...should look in to it again, enjoyed watching John Reese's videos.

    My biggest problem is finding people who are serious about earning income online and making Internet Marketing their career. Many are either lazy or they expect to do nothing and have money flying out of their computer.

    My biggest challenge and frustration on making money online is getting referrals to help me with my PTC sites. I know that you can't make that much money doing PTC sites. But it's the only thing that I can afford to do right now. Eventually I'm going to adventure off into becoming an Affiliate.

    Written skills, it takes me several attempts to get my message across effectively. Unfortunately, it plays a major role in my online success.

          Its a long story. Basically someone I know personally and don't like gained unauthorized access to my sites so I ditched them.

          Now I'm back at square 1 having to restart my IM efforts and am very unsure about buying a new domain name with all thats happened online so far.

          But I'm determined to make some cash online probably going to do content creation for like Constant Content, Associated Content and maybe even do some work with Hubpages.

    Website has been up 6 months, organic traffic reasonable but not getting any list started! Not selling because traffic is too low at this point based on what most savvy netprenuers suggest. 35 hit avg daily. I have plenty of videos out there on page 1 Google Vid, seem to have everything in place, but haven't figured out how to get the traffic flowing. Very frustrating!!!

    Methods that don't work are my biggest frustration. An example is a "mini-site" method I bought a year ago . . . spent around $500, total income in one year = $1.56! It just plain does NOT work as described!

    There doesn't seem to be any easy way to determine which methods work. I am starting to get some success with a few things, as I learn, but I've wasted so much time doing methods that are never going to work at all.

    I guess having written that, I can answer my own question by saying that it one builds a personal relationship with someone, to the point where you know for sure you can trust them, then you can trust their advice. But apart from that, how can you know what methods are a total waste of time? Review sites are just as much BS marketing as most of the methods written on this forum. I've read here that a lot of "mentoring experts" just pay ignorant workers to give standard answers, so that seems no better.

    I guess one just has to keep trying lots of different methods until you find something that genuinely works. It just takes a LOT of time and/or money to do so!

    Shame there's so much dishonesty in the world, but I guess one has to live with it!
