Ten Questions With Aziza Mohmmand
January 8, 2007 4:04 AM   Subscribe

Guy Kawasaki interviews Aziza Mohmmand. What’s the most inspiring story of entrepreneurship that you’ve heard in 2006? My answer does not involve two guys in a garage who sell their company to Google for $1.6 billion. No way...my answer is a woman who runs a soccer-ball factory in Kabul, Afghanistan.

Wow, all that with soccer balls. I wonder sometimes how people who live in a place like Afghanistan under those types of conditions pull it all together and end up building a successful business -and helping people to boot. I mean, she could have stayed in Pakistan and not gone through all the trouble but instead she's taken on this huge responsibility successfully in a pretty bad place. I would have liked to read a longer interview with her.

Interesting she found nothing to complain about re: America.

Yeah, this is a good story, I've been reading Guy's blog for the last couple of months and am always amazed at what he puts together for a post.

This story about Aziza is awesome and inspiring.
