What Was The Biggest Hurdle You Faced That Your Plan Didn't Anticipate?

    I planned a lot of things in stages (largely as I went), but sometimes something just throws a complete spanner in the works. My biggest early error was forgetting to take regular backups of my work. I once lost a full day of creative design work when I accidentally overwrote the files.

    Did you have any early catastrophes?

    Exactly the same mistake, although with me it was irrecoverable hardware failure :(

    Ouch! That sounds like an extra cost on top to deal with as well! I bet that took some recovering from.

    Trust - in the early days I expected others to treat me as I would them. This doesnt work as I found out to my cost! No friends in business :)
