1. How to use this site

Where are the pages for registration and logon?

You will find a link as soon as necessary, so if you want to comment, or on the forum page.

As soon as you are logged in, the option to unsubscribe appears in the menu bar.
Of course you can also use the link near the comment field or on the forum page.

Why an account is required for this site?

An account proves you’re a human of flesh and blood, and not a spam engine.

Therefore, as soon as you want to post a message, either as blog comment or as forum contribution, you need to make yourself know a bit. Easiest way is via an account. A local account verifies whether you answer on emails. A social media account is assumed to be sufficient proof.

Can I use multiple social media accounts on this site?

Yes, normally spoken you can.

I don’t know if that makes sense, though.

When your social media accounts use the same email address, the local accounts will be joined to one (only one account per email adres is allowed).

Can I log in using my social media account?

Yes, of course!

The first time you clicked a social media button, automatically a local account was created.

with every subsequent visit you will log in automatically when clicking that button again.

Can I register myself with my social media account?

Yes, you can!

All you have to do is to click on the corresponding button, and you’re registered on this site with your social media account.

In case you didn’t yet publish an email address with such an account, you’ll be requested to enter that information.
(The email address is needed for you to manage your account on this site).

2. About the content

Those texts and such… where did you get that?

The actual content isn’t new at all.

These are all thoughts and ideas you can find everywhere. My only contribution is that  I rephrase things a bit, and maybe relate things in a different context.

Don’t assume in-depth studies as background information! I just gained a lot of experience as observer of the world around me!

Where do you get the movie clips on this site?

Some of the clips and animations I prepare myself.

However, most of the movie clips come directly from YouTube, and are diplayed here in a playback window.
So actually you do watch YouTube!

Can I re-use the pictures on this site?

Always assume that you can NOT use internet images for your own purposes.

Once you reuse an image from the internet, you are always responsible for checking copyright, ownership and usage restrictions. That’s why I advise you never to just download photos from this site. Go to Pixabay and compose your own selection. Or contact me to find out if you can use my photos. The fact that an image is placed on this site does not mean that you can use it for your own purposes. You can not use this site as a reference in cases of violation of the copyright or any other image related right.

Where do the images on this site come from?

The images on this site are either made by myself, or come from sites that offer free images, such as Pixabay (https://pixabay.com/) and Pexels (https://www.pexels.com/). Occasionally I use images from public sites that allow non-commercial reuse of downloaded images (like NASA and public education institutes).

Pixabay and Pexels offer a huge selection of high quality images in different resolutions, which are free to use.

Please read the usage conditions on these sites for more details.

3. About coaching

Does coaching cost me something?

Feel free to contact me, and we’ll talk about it.

Maybe I’m content with a cup of tea. Companies I might charge the normal tariff for consultants though!

Don’t forget: I don’t have a business, and I don’t intend to start one anymore.

Do you still offer coaching?

I stopped the initiative of an e-Coaching business.

Instead, I launched this site with information that may help people with inspirations or insights.

However, if you feel you can benefit from my experience as people manager and personal (career) coach, you can always send me a message via the contact form.
