About this course

Have you ever been bored in the office? If yes, then this course is perfect for you, as it contains many different games that you can play in Microsoft Excel. They include games such as 2048, Monopoly, finding an exit out of a maze and more. You do not need any additional software to play, only Excel 2007 or newer. This course explains how each game works, what the objective of is and what the controls are. Most importantly you can download the Excel files, which you will use to play the games on your own computer!

This course is divided into sections for each game. At the beginning of each section I explain, what the objective is and how to play the game in Excel. The last lecture in each of the sections contains links to free downloadable material, which are the Excel files containing the games. By downloading these Excel files you will be able to play the games on your own computer.

While playing some of these games, you can pretend that you are actually working in your office. For example there is one Excel file for the game called “2048", which looks like a financial statement. This means that your boss could be fooled that you are working, while in reality you are playing the game.

Online Entrepreneur

Over 6,700 unique students from 136 different countries are studying my courses.

I have been an online entrepreneur since 2010 using various methods of earning money online. I have multiple YouTube channels, tried working with affiliate marketing, consultant on Internet, Forex, selling e-books and an online teacher on Udemy. I love to share my own experiences both from my entrepreneur life and also when I was working in one of the largest corporations in the world (see my CV below).

YouTube:

YouTube: Over 10 million viewers on my main channel, increasing by 250,000 viewers per month. I have several other channels, which are training related.

Udemy:

I started teaching on Udemy in October 2014 and I have gained over 6,700 unique students. I am enjoying teaching and very passionate about helping people solve their problems, grow their business and improve their lives. I can proudly say that I have helped people across the 6 different continents.

My CV:

I finished my BSc Business and Management in one of the top UK universities with a first class degree. After getting the degree, I worked in one of the major corporation that is in Fortune 500 - General Motors. Hence, I am familiar to the corporate culture and the daily life of working in major corporations.

While working for the corporation I have come across many different people that I had to work with. I have also had the opportunity to attend many different business trips in various countries with different cultures, which has allowed me to understand how differently business operations are carried out in different countries.

Right now I work online as an entrepreneur, which has been mentioned before.
