A small review on my private life ... ;-)
Januari 1965, born in Mechelen - Belgium, under the sign of the zodiac as a Capricorne and in Chinese mythologie as a Snake.....
Believe it or not, but people who know me very well, they recognise a lot of those two animals in my character, and yes, i know .... ;-)
I'm the proud father of two lovely daughters, Nicky ( born in 1995) and Chloë (born in 1997) ! :-) :-)
Also i'm the godfather of Karoline, a very dynamic young lady (almost 20 years old ;-) ).
On May 7th, the first child of my brother was born, a little baby girl named Paulien. I'm so proud to be her godfather :-)
February 2002, my life changed completly.
Some friends talked me into a bet, i must be nuts at that time but couldn't refuse, i became a passionate snowborder.
In winter, you can find me offen in Austria but i discovered in the last years also France - Alpe d'Huez, Valfréjus and Switzerland - Leysin area.
In summer, i have fun on the tracks in Snowvalley - Peer - Belgium or Snowworld - Landgraaf - The Nederlands.
In between the summer and winter season, i have great fun with my family driving my Peter Lynn buggy and my 6 m² kite on the beach in Belgium - France and Holland.
Lucky me, my kids are crazy about this sport aswell ! :-)
Sometimes, i still enjoy an old passion: Mountainbike and '4x4 - Off the road' with my truck!
On holidays or some evenings when i'm not busy, i like to read books.
Unfortunathly, most of the time it's business stuff but i also love reading the books of Jef Geeraerts.
I think i have almost his whole collection now.
I'm also a great fan of Hergé and his strips Kuifje | TinTin.
Business as usual ... ;-)
My first Black Star meeting in Holland - May 2008 - opened some new opportunities for me.
I had several 1-2-1 meetings with collegue Black Stars from UK and Holland. The discussions on our 'Virtual Table' made me think and the day after, i decided to take urgent action and change some important things in my life!
First of all, i started a club on Ecademy - ' The World of Gifts & Incentives ©'
Why this club? I like to help people, so i tell Ecademy members around the world what is going on in the branch.
The club is set up as a place were everybody can meet and post his questions, his new products, change idea's and even promote his own products, ....
Today, Mike Verdugt is helping me out with this club. Thank you for that Mike ;-)
I also need to thank Penny Power to give me that wonderfull idea! Thank you Penny to share this idea with me!
An other result, after a good meeting with Black Star Lesley Morissey, i became a part of the Ecademy Support Team. What does the Support Team do? If you have a support request thru the Ecademy system, there will be a big change that you get in touch with me or one of my collegae from Support. It's amazing what kind of questions we recieve and words of thanks to help the Ecademy Members with their problems.
Personnaly it's a fantastic experience, i learn every day more and more about the Ecademy Tools. I'm happy to share this knowledge with the Ecademy members.
You see, investing in a 'Black Star Membership' gives you an excelleration in your business. . . . . . . . . . . . .

So, why i became a Black Star ... ?
As you can see, this is one of the reasons......
Michel Smeets, Bert Verdonck and myself, 3 Belgian Black Stars having fun outside the regular meetings, celebrating a trusted powernetworker ;-) It was very cold but the 'glühwein' was great ;-)
