Excel, create by Doing! Are you looking for a useful Excel course where you truly learn something practical and create a valuable tool? This course is for you!

This course will teach you how to use Excel functions and create a useful Bookkeeping tool. Many people learn Excel functions and all the possible options that you can do with Excel. The real thing is that you will probably not use 80% of the power of Excel.

Excel is powerful but if you do not understand how to use it, your knowledge remains powerless. This course will show you how to use just a few functions and create in the meanwhile a very useful tool. This learning method is named CREATE BY DOING!

If you feel intimidated by Excel do not worry! The real issue is not Excel or You but by the method of learning it! Yes, the way you learn something can be successful or unsuccessful. This course uses the SPEED LEARNING methods of the learning cone. What is that? This is a method development make sure you truly remember 90% of everything you learn. How? Just by doing and following the exercises.

This course is active, and you have to do the exercises and follow along.

Why should I take this course? Your competitor has a bigger course!

I understand you point, but do you know the difference between have a toolbox and understanding to use just only 2 tools. I can teach you every tool you want that you can add all the tools in your toolbox. But would you be able to see the practical value out of it? I do not think so.

What if I give you just 2 tools, a screwdriver and a saw and teach you how to create a great piece of furniture? That would be 100% more valuable and that is what I do! I teach you to make useful tools that you can use for your personal life. By doing you create your furniture! That has a lifelong value!

There is a real difference between knowledge and power. Knowledge is only potential power, without the practical use of it, it becomes powerless. Power is the knowledge that you apply in your daily life! This course is powerful because you use the tools and put it into great use.

I never succeeded in Excel, is this course suitable for me?

Success is a path you walk. Learning Excel is exactly the same. Did you fail before; perhaps you took the wrong path. You learned from a bad teacher or a boring book. If you took the wrong path all you need is readjust your path and start walking again. This course truly is a very easy and slow paced course with much repetitions and exercises. The way to learn is by doing and by great explanations. This course has it both many times over!

Just check it and test it out for a month!

To make it even better, I offer this course as 30 day money back. This basically means that if this course is not right for you, you can get your money back in a blink of an eye. There is truly no reason not to do it and it has no risk at all.

Start taking actions right now and take this course. In life you have winners and losers. The winners take action at once and the losers keep on looking and waiting for the right time. In life there is never a right time except NOW! I truly belief you are winner because you are looking and reading this course.

Alright winner, it is time to take action! Click on “Take this course" and start making great pieces of Excel Furniture!

Data Analyst, Market Researcher, Data Visualizer!

Nicky Wong is an expert in translating data into market opportunities. Data is his passion, Excel, Databases and Big Data are truly wonderful topics. As an absolute data lover and he is always looking for ways to analyze it. It started with stock market facts and now quickly turned to everything that is unique and different.

However, all the information have one primairy goal and that is "How to use this information to gain a competitive advantage". As a Market Researcher with it roots in Marketing Nicky understands that knowledge is power. Whatever you do make sure you use data at your advantage.


My vision of Data and the future


Why Data visualization matters!

I truly belief that Big Data is giving us all a new obstacle to overcome! Information overload is a serious challenge and with Big Data it only multiplies the issue. If you are a data miner you will know that much data has no meaning if you cannot connect any meaningful dots.

Large chunks of data, reports and tables are not effective. It is impressive to get a huge database but it is demotivating for others to read data. The biggest data trend is increasing this issue! Big Data = Information Overload x 10.

From (Digital) Information Age to the (Digital) Understanding Age

A data analyst can analyze data but the most important skill is Data Visualization! These so called "data visualizers" will develop a new skill gathering meaningful information and present it in a very understandable and effective way.

The issue is not anymore the data but the way to give meaning and communicating meaning to others. The person who can do that will have a huge advantage in the so ever growing Big Data world.

Big Data is here! Data Visualizer is on it`s way! In all of my courses I use techniques to create understandable data and present it in an impactful manner.
