    Dear IL'ites,

    Joanna is my friend. We both went to business school together. She is super cool. She is one of the most helpful and enterprising ladies I know. We have spent countless hours on the phone talking about all her business ideas.

    A few weeks ago, she sent me an email saying whether I know anyone at a particular company, lets call it Widget Inc. She told me that she owns a particular domain name and wanted to see if Widget Inc. would be interested in buying it. Unfortunately I didn't know anyone at Widget Inc. and told her so. That was the end of it.

    Today, I got a call from Joanna and we caught up on life's events. I then asked her what happened to her efforts to sell that domain name to Widget Inc. She said, "I have a good story for you". She proceeded to tell me how she ended up selling that domain name to Widget Inc for $60,000. She probably paid $15 for it. I was very very impressed. After chatting about other things, we ended the conversation.

    After thinking about it, I called her back and told her, "You MUST share this story at Indusladies.com. There are a lot of very talented Indian women at IL who would be inspired by your story and get a pointer or two about making money in the US". She instantaneouly agreed.

    I see a lot of women in our forum asking tips about data-entry jobs. While any job is good, if we a think a little smarter, there is a lot of money to be made in the US and Joanna's story is one such thing. Hope you all will enjoy.

    Hey Jo, I know you told me that it might take some time to write your story here, but its truly inspiring and we all will wait to hear from you!

    Dear Jey,

    Just like you to spot excellence and bring it to Indusladies. Like others here have said, it sure sounds like a great intro to a thrilling real life story.

    Yes Jo, do make time and come here to tell us your success story.
