There is a thriving computer repair shop in Huji town of Haian country, Jiangsu province. The owner is an armless young man - Li Guoqing, 36.

Li was born without arms. When he was four, he began to learn how to do things using feet. He persists in learning knowledge and doing things by self. As he failed to get a job many times, he began to do business on his own. He had operated a game room for four years, an Internet café for three years, a supermarket for one year before running the computer shop.

With computer getting popular in the town, he found a new business opportunity. He started to learn computer repair skills by foot, and opened a computer repair shop. The shop gained good reputation soon because of his skilled technique and honest management. His shop is the only one Lenovo authorized store in the town. Li married a girl later and is now enjoying happy life. Li said he is satisfied to live on his own ability.
