A touching story from Iran

In Malaysia, a lot of people are quick to give excuses on why it’s so difficult to make money on the Internet.
When in fact, most of them should really be focusing on more important issues.
And today I learnt about Ladan Lashkari, a young woman from Iran who is actively building her Internet business with no complaints at all. You’ll be able to tell from her life story that it was not a joy ride for her either, but she’s not complaining
Some parts of the story:

Although you wouldn’t know it from her articles and sales letters, Ladan was not born into an English-speaking family. She started learning the language at eight years of age, and devoured every English book she could get her hands on.
Even at such a young age, she began to realize that her fluency in English would open up more doors of opportunity throughout her life. Throughout her teen years, this fervor grew as she tackled the language head-on.

A true entrepreneur, she decided that she wanted to become independent and produce her own income. When her family bought a computer, she quickly began experimenting with ways she could turn it into an income stream. She tried all kinds of business; teaching Windows, graphic designing with PhotoShop, website design, and even learned C++ programming.
Even though she was able to make money through those avenues, she knew that there was a bigger opportunity out there.

At sixteen years of age, she discovered the world of Internet marketing through the late Cory Rudl’s website. She bought and studied his internet marketing course, along with other ebooks and resources.

She knew right away that THIS was the business she wanted to be in.
Some of the problems she has faced:
She has limited rights as a woman in Iran
She couldn’t get a credit card.
She can’t open a PayPal account.
She can’t get a merchant account
She can’t have a bank account in US dollars
She can’t cash any USD checks.
She can’t travel / get a visa to many countries
