Microsoft Excel in My Life – How I Learn and Share

My Life with Excel – Learn, Grow, Repeat

Microsoft Excel has been a huge part of my life for over 17 years now.  It is an incredibly powerful application, with so many features and functions that are not fully utilized by the vast majority of users.  It’s amazing how different my creation and application of spreadsheets, formulas, charts and graphs is today, compared with years ago.  Back then, it was absolutely basic Excel for me.  There are certain functions that I have had to learn and relearn, due to some of the great advances in the software.

Microsoft Excel in My Life – Ever changing = Non-stop Learning

I learn something new every week!  My skills have continued to grow exponentially and I rarely have to spend more than a few minutes determining an Excel based solution for the business challenges, problems and opportunities I face on a daily basis.

“The Guru”

Colleagues often refer to me as the Excel guru.  After learning so much from some true gurus in the Excel domain, I feel the title is a bit much for me, but I definitely can (non-humbly, sorry) admit that I’m pretty darn good and well versed in the application.  Coworkers come to me whenever they are stuck, or trying to come up with a new way of doing something.  I even get calls for help from people in other departments, from around the world!  I love to share my wealth of Excel knowledge with anybody and everybody.  I am thrilled when I learn something new.  I’m doubly ecstatic when someone else does!  There are infinite possibilities with spreadsheets these days, when you roll in VBA, Power Query, PowerPivot, PowerBI and Azure!  It’s amazing, and I’m only just beginning to truly harness some of that power.  Everyone who uses Excel should learn about these!

Tutorials and Posts

My plan is to create tutorials and posts as frequently as I can manage.  I only want to provide meaningful content and information, and truly strive to be clear and concise in my delivery.  I welcome your questions and commentary on my posts!  I would love to help and teach as many people as possible.  I may even design a class!  Excel makes life easier!  That’s one of my mantras!

Please let me know if you have questions or feedback in the comment section.  I would love to hear from you!
