Being self employed seems impossible right now

Being self employed seems impossible right now

Sigh. I don’t even know where to begin, but to say I’m frustrated at the moment is a total understatement. I’ve been working like crazy on my website empire over the past few weeks, and a quick review of my visitor stats right before bed last night made me seriously question my current path toward financial independence. I’m getting exactly nowhere, and in some cases, I’m actually losing ground. Web traffic is down, sales have completely dried up, and there has been absolutely nothing happening with my swing trading lately. Why am I working so hard for absolutely ZERO results?

Whatever it is that I’m doing, I must be doing it completely wrong. A few of my websites have been up for more than three years, and despite my constant work on them, monthly traffic stays the same. What really hurts is that my main website (my pride and joy) is suffering a massive decrease in organic traffic and I haven’t a clue as to why that is. Nothing has changed, everything still works, and it is totally out of my control. Perhaps the particular niche is drying up – I don’t really know. Am I going to be stuck in a soul-killing corporate job forever? Just kill me now…

I have been feeling frustrated for a while, but this all came to a head about an hour ago when the v2.0 launch of one of my existing websites went horribly wrong. So badly, in fact, that I had to revert back to the old site. I have literally poured my life into this project over the past week, staying up late nights and working all weekend, only to have it self-destruct upon launch. There’s some bad code in there somewhere, and to be honest, I do not have an ounce of energy (or desire) to fix it. A completely wasted week.

I’m sick to death of working so hard and not getting anywhere.
