blind entrepreneur

Take Utah man Jeremiah Espinoza, for example. A United States Army veteran, Espinoza is running a successful business making whips despite losing 99 percent of his eyesight from an injury sustained shortly after his return from the first Gulf War, KSL reports. Espinoza says his disability actually helps him make the whips that are still used by cattle drivers today. In 2012, Espinoza and his company Blind Man's Whips was recognized by the Utah State University Small Business Development Center.
