Andrew 'Andy' Kirchner Kolektivo Steward178 Entrepreneurial Facilitator • Mindful Mindset Coach
The Recycle Pirate | Life Awareness & Innovations is me taking charge of my life.
Innovation isn't always doing something new. Innovation is also doing something better than what was initially created.
As a Pirate I take matters in my own hands to be responsible for what I can create and what I can leave behind with a clear conscience. The status qua is a test to the truth.

2021 ended with an enormous emotional high and a dark, and down, physical low.
While it feels like my most accomplished year ever (!!!) it has also come with medical challenges that really rocked my foundation and triggered many fears.
I am very pleased with myself and my practice of self-care, keeping the balance ⚖️ between work, life, health and sanity. Yet, with all my practice and experience, I couldn't have prepared myself for nerve pains, hospital visits and unanswered medical questions. I can not play the tough guy with a straight face.
I will, however, not let my head hang or be pity. In the coming time, I will be focussing on three "projects" that will keep my spirits high and help me grow beyond whatever I can imagine.
1. I will be on a medical/health quest to find solutions for these challenges. This is not an easy nor short path, and it can’t be avoided. So keep your fingers crossed for me.
2. I will continue my #EveryoneAPostcard project for The Recycled Pirate. Please join my Patreon, donate to my PayPal, or come and visit me, so we can write some cards together. I can really use the distraction and positive vibes that I can send, and receive!
3. I am on an AMAZING adventure with Kolektivo Curaçao which has been making many of my dreams come true. As an ecosystem facilitator within the organization, I will be focusing on creating a lot of social impact on the island, from food forests to economic developments, with a local and international team.
I am excited. I am confused. I am scared. I am inspired. And I am willing to face whatever comes on my path, and work though whatever challenge that counters me.
I am The Recycled Pirate, because I recycle life. Nothing changes if you don't change with it. ♻️
Let's make 2022 a year to remember, no matter the outcome!

This is why we believe an #ImpactEconomy is important, and why working together will benefit us all. Congratulations to both IBIS Management & Fundashon Alton Paas for creating togetherness to benefit our lesser able.
Does that mean that there are more people buying data for their smartphones, than they are depositing money on a bank account?
You are the answer that you are seeking.
You are the solution to all your worries.
All you have to do is open up, and stop believing the limiting beliefs your mind tells you!
YOU ARE THE HERO TO YOUR OWN HAPPINESS!
Teams are an interesting concept. By working together, you can achieve so much more, but you have to work through so much more inner work, to be of service to the team.
I love being part of this evolving team. Yolanda Wiel joined to help build the community. Rianne Gracia joined to bring more local and diaspora talent to the team, if possible with some tech affiliation. Kyara Wanga hoined to help us improve the inner and external communication. Giovani Zanolino joined, or at least his hand did, to bring art and culture to the team.
Together, with many others, for example Gilberto Morishaw , Ruben Russel, Luuk Weber and Ayrton Sambo located in the Netherlands, we form Kolektivo.
A collective, aiming to build a regenerative economy for our beloved island Curaçao. Using modern governance with Web3 development, Blockchain technology and a community coin named Curadai, to supply an ecosystem with good intentions.
We bring innovation to our international rock and make it an #ImpactHub

But the world needs many more leaders, that lead tiny fractions of communities (like Kolektivo Curaçao) to create real change. The world needs us to work together, respect each other and create better ways on how we deal with our neighbors, our environment and where we spent our cash.
Your actions matter! Climate change isn't just about pollution, it's about how we help our fellow citizens, become better human beings, for them to care to better the values of their, and their children's life.
We are grateful to Cherissa Koko to invite us to the Antillen Kring. The Antillen Kring is a local discussion group that wanted to better understand the philosophy of a Regenerative Economy. Why the use of Web 3 and Blockchain technology are important. And how a local community coin, CuraDAI, can bring us together.
Kolektivo called in the help of Juan-Carlos Goilo to share his experience with the Doughnut Economy philosophy and why it's important for us as an island to take a deeper look at our local ecosystem.
Kolektivo is build with the Doughnut Economy philosophy in mind and brings the best of multiple philosophies in a collective ecosystem that we call an impact economy.
We can only create an impact if we work collectively, and we are growing, from a seed, to a collective of changemakers.

Thank you to all who attended the Curaçao Pioneros Ban Topa at Beyglz and the Innovation Ç Knowledge & Networking at The Triangle. And an extra special thanks Rianne & Yolanda for being troopers.
Last Tuesday we closed this month's, unexpected, event cycle with the Antillen Kring. A local discussion group with an interesting community and even more interesting conversation about Donut Economy Philosophy (Thank you JC) and a community (stable) coin.

As Kolektivo (Collective) we are steadily creating a team that is showing more promising every time, spanning over multiple countries with big aspirations.
We are building a community network so we can create a regenerative economy. From the ground up, with Web 3 development, into the Blockchain, into, hopefully, your hearts and pocket.
I should not be involved in this, for there are more intelligent people out there, but I love working on it every minute, and I'm going to give it my all!
It's a creator's dream to create a dream project, and I'm on it!
Watch the aftermovie of Innovation Ç Curaçao’s Pioneers Ban Topa at Beyglz.
We enjoyed an evening full of innovation by sharing Kolektivo Curaçao's values. Kolektivo is creating an impact economy, a regenerative ecosystem, with the use of Blockchain technology and a community coin, CuraDAI
