Play • 22 min

Never let inexperience stop your ingenuity! That’s exactly what Andres learned as he maneuvered his way to the top of the web development field.

During this conversation he is transparent about his naivete at the beginning of his career but because he was tapped into high-level thinking, he was able to bag some incredible opportunities despite his lack of experience. He clues the audience in on a few successful aspects of his career which included:

  • How to take risks and figure out execution later.
  • Why it’s worth working on your craft even when there isn’t a paying gig.
  • How to build a great reputation and rapport in your industry.

Andres is the founder of 3aces Studio. A multicultural production studio that specializes in software solutions and high-end products. After graduating from Trinity College in 2016, Andres was not new to entrepreneurship. He once worked an entire year on building a fantasy football app that flopped not long after it launched. His work ethic didn’t fail him though because he eventually found an opportunity in freelancing and grew his reputation as a person who would go above and beyond, landing him a deal with the US government.
