Information about EntrepreneurAndres Pira is a real-estate tycoon based in Phuket, Thailand who is well-known for his inspirational homeless-to-billionaire life story. He is the Founder & CEO of the award-winning Blue Horizon Developments.
Andres was not the product of a top-tier business school, nor did he inherit a grand fortune that made him the billionaire he is today. Homeless on the beaches of Phuket at a young age, he came from humble beginnings and carved his own path to the top. After asking a friend for help during the toughest period of his life, Andres was sent a book called The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. While setting out to disprove the theories he read about, Andres discovered the secrets to success, all of which he shares in his book, “Homeless to Billionaire - The 18 Principles of Wealth Attraction and Creating Unlimited Opportunity.
Other Interesting Facts about EntrepreneurAndres is a firm believer in the theory of “vibrational giving”. He believes that when you give, it is vital that you do so with positive emotions and feelings in your heart, and without expecting anything in return. When you selflessly give with good intentions, you won’t worry about how or when the person you helped will pay you back. Instead, you will focus your attention on the impact you’ve made and the joy you’ve caused in someone else, which will without fail reflect upon you.
Andres regularly supports the local community and charity organisations. He has been collaborating with Phuket Has Been Good To Us to support over 700 underprivileged kids in Phuket through visa and work permit sponsorship for English teachers, empowering young minds and helping shape them into future leaders.
