Andrea teaches that each thought, behavior, and action creates a ripple effect. She believes that when we come together, change can be made. With a sense of community, separation dissipates, leading to happier, healthier, more compassionate human beings, who can then contribute back to others.
Check out her book on the topic, Connected: 101 Ways to Be of Service and Create Community.
Andrea’s adoration for the human spirit is expressed through her writing, events, and books where she teaches others how to lead with service and live with compassion and love.
Andrea Costantine witnessed her first example of compassionate service early in life, when at five years old she saw her father give a box of fried chicken to a homeless man digging in the dumpster behind their family restaurant. As a teen, the only thing that kept her out of trouble (and her grades decent), was being involved in student government, where she contributed to both her school and the local community. More recently, Andrea has volunteered for various non-profits, literacy efforts, children’s services and local events. (Also see Giving Back.)
Her books include Speaking Your Truth Volumes I, II, and III, How to Bring Your Book to Life: An Exploratory Guidebook on Writing and Self-Publishing, Soulful Marketing: Heart Centered Marketing for Conscious Entrepreneurs, Connected: 101 Ways to Be of Service and Create Community and most recently, a children’s book, Five Little Arepas.
She lives in Denver, Colorado, with her husband and two full-of-life boys. Born and raised in Central Florida, she uprooted her life and moved to the Rocky Mountains in 2007. She loves learning, traveling, people, good conversation, and the great outdoors.
