Jeff Bezos is one of these people. His business is huge and you have probably heard of him. Rand Fishkin and David Aguilar are also entrepreneurs I admire. They are great people to talk to and I have interviewed them before on my blog. They are very open to sharing their experiences and knowledge. This is what I believe makes them so extraordinary.

David Aguilar Amphoux was born with Poland syndrome and began to play with LEGOs during his childhood. He discovered his talent for inventing as a child. He started to create his own prosthetic arm. He was nine years old when his first prosthetic was built from LEGO bricks.
Aguilar, in his teens, designed an improved version of his prosthetic. Aguilar then created the first LEGO prosthetic that was fully functional. The Mk-I model was a Guinness World Record holder and quickly became a hit on social media. It was constructed using a Lego Technic Air Race Jet Kit. It was able to grasp objects using a pincer-like grip. A motor was also available in the Mk-II model, which enhanced grip.
Aguilar hopes to create models that have all fingers moving independently and the elbow moving. Aguilar will also attempt 3D printing.
