Vaulting Beyond Heavy Political Walls

An extraordinary entrepreneur’s adventure

Some folks enjoy keeping up with major players and latest happenings in politics or finance or sports, or the arts and show biz in all its varieties. Though I too follow some of these - for several years I’ve also been fascinated with the innovations and pioneering men and women in the Internet Marketing field.

One day, an unusual story came to my attention. In one of the well-known marketers’ blogs I read about a remarkable young woman - only age 20 or so - who lives in Iran and yet has managed to start her own internet marketing enterprise and has already achieved a measure of success. And all this in spite of being a woman in an Islamic country, having to learn and work fundamentally on her own, plus being hampered by restrictive government regulations. But now her story was out and other IM writers were raising quite a viral buzz about this young entrepreneur over the internet.

I’m fascinated – and determined to find out more!

I quickly subscribed to Ladan’s newsletter, eager to see her information products and also to learn of her latest activities. My curiosity was piqued as I wondered what her daily life in that repressive environment might be like. I especially wondered how she had managed to succeed this far - in spite of the strictures on individual and business activities imposed by the current Iranian regime.

In a flash I decided an interview with Ladan would be a great piece for readers of The National Networker. I also realized that obtaining such an interview to begin with would be (in my humble opinion) a great coup for myself as a writer and TNNW Women’s Networking Editor.

It turned out to be really simple: I wrote Ladan and asked if I could interview her via e-mail. As I see (from her writings) that she’s a great a believer in the power of networking, I knew the magic word “networking” would get her attention!

Ladan responded quickly and graciously. She answered my questions openly – and I am happy to share them with you, our TNNW readers. So – here we are!

As you read her words, you will remember that English is not Ladan’s mother tongue – yet she communicates clearly and with great confidence. I have deliberately not changed her “voice” nor edited out the charm of the way she uses our language.
