Hi my name’s Andres. I write about ideas they don’t teach us at school.

At the root of everything is an idea. At Big Skill I study these ideas, mix them with others, and put them together in new ways. I share them with you, in hope that they can help you live a better life.

Big Skill focuses on learning the basics in multiple disciplines. Like building blocks, I lay one piece on top of another.

I use multiple sources, take them apart, figure out the best ways to apply them, and share them with you. The better we develop individually, the easier it’ll be to advance as a whole. Imagine the opportunities we’d create, the understanding we’d have, the change that would occur, and the value we’d add to our community. It’s possible. This is my first step.

Big Skill = Evolved Enterprise

Big Skill = Evolved Enterprise

I believe in a place where people have access to a good quality education. One which provides the tools necessary to succeed in any path. Education is a way to better understand ourselves and others. By doing that, we’re better able to create the life we want and effect positive change. I’m using business as a means to help improve the world. That’s why a percentage of our sales is donated to different organizations active in improving the quality of education for future generations.

What People Are Saying About Big Skill:

Big Skill is just getting started. The foundations are being laid right now so you’ll find areas that are still ‘under construction’ or ‘coming soon.’ But so far, this is what people in the community have said about the books and content.

Encourage your teens and young adults to use this book as guide to life’s choices!

I found this book very motivational for anyone who is looking for a change in their life. Many years of life experiences can teach you direction and this book can help you get a better start before years pass you by! I would recommend parents read this book and pass it on to their teenagers before they leave the nest!Highly recommend for getting a jump start on life.

Highly recommend it!!!

I have enjoyed reading this book. The author has given us easy to understand life messages, and, as said in his own words he guides us through with questions and proposals in his journey. I truly feel this is a great approach to start moving forward in life. I definitely will put in practice the author's recommendations and will also share my hard copy with friends and family.

Greatly enjoyed the various perspectives shared for viewing challenges.The most useful section in my opinion discusses 'Context'. The ideas on longer term thinking, zooming in, zooming out and breadth and depth are of great use when facing problems. They allow you to look at a situation from a variety of angles and better understand what's going on. The part on reframing has become an invaluable part of my everyday thought process as I encounter difficulties. An excellent read with solid research that I will certainly be coming back to often.
