  17. I was curious if you could send me the planner you had posted on your article “Level 6 Time Management: Managing Change And Trends” in an excel format? I am trying to make a planner for school this year and wanted to make some changes to it. Thank you so much.

  18. Hi Ken,

    I enjoyed some of the videos on your channel, and saw that they were listed under a “Creative Commons Attribution.” That is great because maybe in the future I would like to reshare them, but since videos are often mis-labeled as Creative Commons or if they are properly labeled, I’m sending this to make sure that that is the proper license.

    Can you confirm that the videos on your channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/kdkrogue/about that are labeled “Creative Commons Attribution” are actually licensed under a “Creative Commons Attribution” license?

    I have messaged you through your YouTube channel but have not got a response. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Regards,
    Tamanna Sharma.
