Adversity overcome in starting or running a business?

Do you have any stories about adversity you've faced during your company's startup or operations and how you overcame it? Here's mine:

I didn't have a lot of experience in my industry when I decided that I wanted to start a business. In addition, many people I knew in the industry including family members were very unsupportive. I overcame this by digging in and taking the experience that I could get and learning from it until I started to attract real clients for whom I could produce successful results. I also went back to school and got a master's degree which helped my knowledge and credibility as well.
