I think the hardest is that you're on your own and there's not many people to mirror yourself to. Communities like this make it easier because at least you have people with the same ambition in a group.

I agree with what Pieter mentioned above, but I'd like to add that you're also doing all the stuff by yourself. (design, development, marketing, customer support etc..). I find it hard to not get distracted sometimes and just focus on 1 task at a time.
