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 a sales agent, then sales manager, and finally sales director. By year 3, he excelled in real estate sales and had harvested several property investors who believed in his vision and ambitions. This led to his first investor funded property development.
Seeking an exotic refuge from the stresses of modern life, serial entrepreneur and real-estate guru Andres Pira has chosen the tropical paradise of Phuket, Thailand to reside. Lines of coconut trees, beautiful beaches, and the impeccable Thai hospitality have proven too good to resist. And within the land of smiles, the story of a homeless to billionaire unfolds. The founder of 19 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.
In June 2017, Phuket-based Blue Horizon Developments, Andres company, was named ‘Top Thai Property Developer’ and ‘New Hotel Construction & Design’ by Asia Pacific Property Awards 2017-2018. In July 2017, Blue Horizon Developments collected 3 awards, ‘Best Developer’, ‘Best Mixed-Use Development’, and ‘Best Mid-range Condo Development Phuket’ for their $850 million Grand Himalai Project at the inaugural awards ceremony by Thailand Property and Dot Property Group.

Andres set out in pursuit to meet the mentors that have inspired his changed life and mindset. Investing in a 2-day sold-out live event, he welcomed Dr. Joe Vitale, author of The Secret: Law Of Attraction, for his first visit to Thailand. He reached out to other success gurus Thailand’s top talk show with Woody with Miss Universe Natalie Glebova to promote it. The goal of the event was to bring massive inspiration to Thailand’s diverse audience. It was Dr. Joe Vitale that encouraged Andres to tell his inspiring story publicly for the first time at his own event. It was on this stage that the mentor and the student decided to write a book together.
From Homeless to Billionaire details how this street-wise, homeless person became a billionaire by simply using the techniques and mind set of the wealthiest people on earth. Today, Andres is on a mission to bring the biggest mentors in mindset to the masses with his new live events company.
“I’ve committed myself to a journey of success using self-help disciplines. Everybody loves rags to riches inspirational stories. I’m not any different than you as an individual. If someone else can do it, it means you can too. What do you possibly have to lose when you’re only changing the way you see, want, or think about things?”
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.
“A Man’s true wealth is the good he does in this world.”
Making the most out of his life, Andres spends his spare time traveling the world, learning new cultures, and exploring unbound territories. At the age of 30, he became immersed in the adrenaline 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.
“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’s out of reach. The mind-set is the most important gift I can contribute positively to both local and global society. A progressive shifting mind-set from one person can make a wave. This is the moment, now is the time I would like to be a contributor to the change-making movements,” stated Andres.
The debut of ‘From Homeless to Billionaire- The 18 Principles of Great Wealth Attraction’ gives practical insights on tackling success and failures, giving freely to activate positive vibrations, why passion and joy are key successes to life and work, learning to be a calculated risk taker, and how to convert problems into opportunities. Stay tuned in 2018.
