    Traffic generation.
    And I'm sure I won't be the only one to answer that
    Do you use Facebook ? Then you can make money just by inviting people to a Facebook group ! It's called the Instant Income System. How cool is that?

    I was a bit stuck with installing Wordpress. Choosing a domain was hard and also getting traffic to it was really hard. But getting a decent conversion rate was the hardest of all!

    Definitely motivation. Sometimes I just don't feel like working and take a week off!

      For me it was getting started. I sat on this for 6 months before I jumped into it.

      Now it's getting traffic.

        traffic generation definitely - keyword research got to me some when I first started but now that is no problem. Traffic is the main thing throughout the entire journey that I've had problems with off an don.

    Traffic, since buying solo ads for my list gets a bit expensive and I'm always having to reinvest instead of keeping the money.

    For me it was about BELIEF.

    I was not sure that I could succeed because society has taught us to get a good education so that we can get a good job.

    When you start online with some sort of a business, your belief is not that high. Plus, when you tell the people who are really close to you that you start a "business", they tend to put your down. This also does a bigger damage to your belief.

    My biggest struggle has been that I don't want to do list-building because ethically, I can't reconcile doing to other people what I don't like having done to me (promotional list email).

    Even though everyone seems to believe that one must do list building to succeed, in order to live with myself I apparently am going to need to find a mode that doesn't require or involve lists.

    For me, it used to be focus.

    These days I'm just putting 110% of my effort into one thing at a time. Get it done, get it out there, move on!

    Getting down to the grind and actually getting some work down. It's all about building a customer base, or email list. This requires making contacts, to other websites, to reach your target market. It requires resources, either money or time, to write high quality articles to give to these websites and hope that they syndicate your content to their website, so people can click through to your website.

    I would say my biggest struggles are, getting to work, or resources(money).
