Story of Andres

As Seen On:

Bought a One-way
Ticket to Thailand

Homeless Billionaire on the Beach

Originally from Stockholm, Sweden, Andres grew up in gloomy weather, unhappy, and with no vision for his future. After the sudden death of his grandfather, who left him $2000 as an inheritance, Andres decided to find a warmer climate. Taking his grandfather’s death as a sign to start living before it was too late.

At the recommendation of the booking agent, he bought a one-way ticket to Thailand. Down to his last $100, with no contacts, jobs, or knowledge of Thai language and too embarrassed to ask his family for help, he slept his life away on the beach strip of Phuket.

Desperate, he asked a friend if he could borrow money. The response was dim.

“I won’t give you any money, but I’ll give you a book that might help you.”

Both hungry and angry from the response, Andres belligerently read the book on an empty stomach. It was called The Secret: The Law of Attraction. The next day he set out to disprove the “law of attraction” that he had read about. The skeptic went on to become a true believer and changed his life forever.

With his new “attraction” mindset, Andres landed a job as a marketing executive handing out brochures for a real estate developer. Within 1 year, he was promoted to sales agent, then sales manager, and finally, sales director. By year 3, he had excelled in real estate sales and had found several property investors who believed in his vision and ambitions. This led to his first investor-funded property development.

Hitting Success
at Young Age

Seeking an exotic refuge from the stresses of modern life, serial entrepreneur, and real-estate guru Andres Pira has chosen to reside in the tropical paradise of Phuket, Thailand. Lines of coconut trees, beautiful beaches, and the impeccable Thai hospitality proved too good to resist. Within the land of smiles, the story of a man who went from homeless to billionaire unfolds. The founder of 20 companies, with more than 250 employees and growing, this 36-year-old billionaire now humbly offers advice to those who want to learn from his journey. Andres Pira and his group of companies is worth approximately 1.8 billion THB. His serial businessman spirit has expanded his investment ventures into a gym, law office, a gas station, several coffee shops, and more.

Andres lives by
the Buddhist virtue of ‘giving’

A Philanthropist at heart, Andres lives by the Buddhist virtues of ‘giving’. Over the past decade, Andres gratefully celebrated his business successes with giving back to society in many ways. His other company Phuket Condos & Homes has frequent charitable involvements with a Phuket-based charity established after the 2004 Tsunami called Phuket Has Been Good To Us (PHBGTU), to improve the economic and life chances of young people. Andres spends his birthdays with a visit to orphanages delivering bags of gifts.

Adrenaline Junkie

Making the most out of his life, Andres spends his spare time traveling the world, learning about new cultures, and exploring unbound territories. At the age of 30, he became immersed in the adrenaline rush of extreme sports. He enjoys mountain climbing, skydiving, bungee-jumping, skiing, body building, and football. “The adrenaline and stress of an adventure is better than a thousand peaceful days is often heard from the man in action.”

He does extreme sports because he believes facing your fears by jumping out of a plane, exploring caves, climbing mountains, etc., will scare you and make you fearless in business.

“The adrenaline and stress of an adventure is better than a thousand peaceful days.” Paulo Coelho


Andres owes his success in being able to turn his life around from being homeless on the beaches of Thailand to becoming a billionaire real estate developer to implementing the success principles taught by his mentors Jack Canfield, Bob Proctor, Dr. Joe Vitale, Brian Tracy, Napoleon Hill, and others. One of these mentors, Dr. Joe Vitale believes that he still learns so much from his mentee, as he took the principles and developed them into something much more than he was taught.

Both Andres and his mentors have been able to harness the power of wealth attraction to create incredible opportunities in their lives and fulfill dreams for themselves and those they love. This is possible for everyone to achieve because these 18 Principles work, and they will work for you as long as you apply them. In the words of Dr. Joe Vitale: “Expect miracles.”

Andres made it a goal to meet the mentors that inspired his changed life and mindset. He created and invested in a 2-day live event ‘Success Events’ that sold out. Dr. Joe Vitale, a spiritual teacher well known for his appearance in the movie, The Secret: Law of Attraction, was a prominent speaker as well as other success gurus. The event was promoted by Thailand’s top talk show host, Woody, and Miss Universe Natalie Glebova. The goal of the event was to inspire Thailand’s diverse audience to apply the 18 Principles in their own lives. It was here, encouraged by Dr. Joe Vitale, that Andres told his inspiring story publicly for the first time. It was on this stage that the mentor and the student decided to write a book together.



A philanthropist at heart, Andres lives by the Buddhist virtue of giving.

“I consider myself a global citizen. Although I’ve built my empire in Southeast Asia, I don’t see any possibilities within this world that are out of reach. The mindset is the most important gift I can contribute positively to both local and global society. A progressive shifting mindset from one person can make a wave. This is the moment, now is the time I would like to be a contributor to change-making movements” – Andres Pira.

Calculated risks


One of the reasons I engage, and have my employees engage, in extreme sports (summitting mountains, jumping out of planes, cave diving) is because this forces you to face your fears. Once I, or my employees, have completed an extreme adventure and faced our fears, we walk away with a renewed sense of “anything is possible.” By forcing your body to do things that your mind is afraid to do, it is impossible to have a negative mindset. Why? Your mind is programmed to support your survival. Worrying never gets you off the mountain or out of that plane; action does, one step at a time.

I have asked them to push their physical limits using the power of their mind. Every time we have come down the mountain or touched the ground after their free-fall, they have been happier and more productive.
