False. He inherited his money, got his start with a million dollar "loan" that with inflation today is millions. He entered the real estate business through his father. He started life learning how to cheat the system. There are various wealthy people who started with nothing and had devotion to work and creativity and those are generally the elements of what it takes. The system is now rigged to make rich people richer.
Jeff Bezos was born on January 12, 1964, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, to a teenage mother, Jacklyn Gise Jorgensen, and his biological father, Ted Jorgensen. The Jorgensens were married about a year. When Bezos was 4 years old, his mother remarried Miguel Bezos, a Cuban immigrant who in 1962, came to America from Cuba wearing a jacket his mother had hand-stitched from cleaning rags. He was a teenager traveling by himself and he spoke almost no English. If you look into the background, Jeff Bezos worked hard, did well at school, obtained college degrees, started Amazon with $300,000 from Miguel who started with nothing.
That's getting closer. It takes hard work and a supportive background even if having some help.These people had a lot less than that as part of Amazon was some help from Bezos adopted father who started in rags:

Getting rich involves one or a combination of being smart, working hard or just being lucky. Not everyone can do it.
