Publisher's Summary

Create business legacy adventure....

In Homeless to Billionaire, Andres Pira presents 18 principles for attracting wealth, creating opportunity, and celebrating self-discovery. Inspired by his own massive life changes, Pira details his business journey from telemarketer to one of Thailand’s best-known billionaires. Using his mentors like Bryan Tracy, Jack Canfield, and Bob Proctor, Pira puts proven knowledge into action, innovating along the way, using his own employees and clients; through failure and success, the 18 Principles are forged. Uncanny wisdom, from this millennial adventurer turned businessman, is blended with proven research and case studies into powerful lessons.

“Do whatever it is you want to do in life. Be whomever you want to be. Go wherever you want to go. Have whatever it is you want to have right now,” urges Pira.

It’s part autobiography, part success workbook, and 100 percent life lessons. From making employees jump out of airplanes, to summiting mountain tops, Pira details how to move from fear to inspiration, competitiveness to domination, and student to mentor in business. His call to action is for listeners to live their legacy every day.

Inspiring to both new or old to self improvement

This book reads both like a review and summary to all the most important principles of success and as an inspirational story that anyone can relate to. If you're new to success and self-improvement literature, you'll be inspired. If you've already read quite a few books on the subject, this book may be the one that will finally make all the principles click for you--the inspirational story may also be the one that you can finally relate to. This may be the whole package that will, at last, propel you into action towards realizing your dreams... fast! Good Luck!

Not a billionaire

I stopped listening after #6. I couldn’t take “the universe” gave me this or that any longer. Also the fact that he speaks in “dollars” when in fact he lives in Thailand and they don’t use US$ there, so a little research finds he is indeed not a billionaire. Don’t get me wrong, he’s wealthy but the title is deceiving.

Horrible narrator

It’s better to get the paperback format. This narrator is horrible. When he reads, it seems like it’s his last breath on earth and he’s gonna die.

OK. Wanted more of his bio

This is a combo autobiography and how to book. It’s very hard to do both in one book. This fails in the autobiography department. (Can’t Hurt Me by David Goggins is a rare exception).

I would like to read a more detailed of the narrative of Andres’ life. The key deals, the failures, etc. We get snippets of this. But, only when he is discussing one of his 18 points. I was disappointed.

Not a billionaire (in USD)... not even close,

I'll start with my criticisms:
While most of the 18 principles outlined in his book are indeed sound and have proven the test of time (as most have already been taught by numerous 20th century authors, many of whom are referenced in the book), I have an issue with the integrity of the title. Let's start with his claim of being "homeless". This is a strategic and creative usage of the term. He was on a tropical beach in Thailand, not living under a freeway in Detroit! While he may have been technically homeless, the author takes much license with the term. Mr. Pira's company is worth about $60MM USD. Still an impressive valuation, but I find it difficult to take advice from someone who would knowingly deceive his readers, knowing full well, many, if not most, of his sales will be in the US or GB. Yes, he is a billionaire in Thailand, where a Baht is worth three cents US.
Second, the narration (from award winning narrator, Paul Heitsch), while clear and concise, is not befitting of an author who claims to have been a gang member and frequently refers to being "from the streets". Paul frankly sounds like he just had a pedicure/manicure and is sipping a drink with an umbrella in it whilst narrating. Good for him, but it's not convincing.
In terms of the writing, most importantly, the message was received and I did find value in it. I have even written down many of them as daily reminders and affirmations to myself. However (and it's a BIG however), too many authors skip right to the butterflies and rainbows while casually referencing when they made "their first million". No mention whatsoever in this book of how he got from "homeless" to his "first million"! This is what people want to know! This is why people buy these books! We all know it's easy to make money, build businesses and live dreams when you're already a millionaire!!! It's frustrating to read these books when they skip over the single most important and powerful thing that separates them from the other 99%. Without that 1st million, you can't even anti-up in the business world. Readers want to know how to get in the game! THEN we can talk about philanthropy and warm fuzzy stuff.
Lastly, we ALL must find another word for the "Universe", as it is used in this context. Uuugghhhh... I get the intent, but it just makes me cringe when people use it this way. How about we redefine our concept of God to fit less with this "angry, judgmental, gray-haired old white-man" imagery, and align it with what everyone has come to refer to as the Universe? It's the same thing! Instead of rebranding the idea of God, let's evolve our perception of God. In other words, take religion out of spirituality, and see how that works out. Just a thought...
Overall, I would recommend this book. In many ways, I am not unlike the author, except that he is a "billionaire" (in a 3rd world country) and I am not. Still, I find value in pondering that.

Riveting story and fantastic performance!


I was fascinated first by the title and the stories and principles did not under deliver.

I really enjoyed the stories and how they were told I also really appreciated the chapter layouts that enabled me to go back to certain chapters and take notes on the principles and concepts that really inspired me.

I would recommend this book to any person who might be wanting to run their business better, connect better with their staff or employees desiring to create a stronger culture as well as changing their mindset.
It could take you from a mindset that might be more cutthroat or maintaining being a big dog on campus to having a mindset that can influence the people around you and have a great impact on your city.

It of course could also impact a mindset from poverty mindset to wealth mindset.

Great read! And by “read“ I mean a great listen :-)

Enjoy! I sure did!

One way of success!

I gave it a 5 star, because there is no perfect, or one way to success! The books gives an insight of how he was able to achieve wealth, and success. While giving real life tips, and steps to help you apply the 18 principles in your everyday life. You use them in your own life situation. Not exactly a blueprint; but a guideline. A truly great book.

Love the book and the story but not the narrator

Such a great story and a wonderful reminder of all the principles of the law of the attraction, success principles and more. I just wish a different narrator had been used as his voice is flat and boring and emotionless which makes it hard to listen to. Thankfully I bought the book to read as well.

Missed out explaining the point why I bought the b

This was a good beginning about him experiencing extreme poverty and reading a book which changed which turnaround his life to being wealthy. The reason why I gave it 3 star rating was because it jumped from poverty to wealth without explaining how he did it. This was disappointing.

great story, average delivery

great stories outlining the principles Andres has used to generate his transformation and success. not a fan of the narrator, i found it hard to listen to, would have preferred the author himself to narrate.
