Your Benefit

Do you want to learn Excel? By following a more natural path to learning, you will find this course to be different from many other Excel courses. Children learn how to walk because they are curious to explore more. They don't learn how to walk just for the sake of it. I don't want to teach you Excel just for the sake of it. Let me show you how it can help you fulfill your needs.

Ready tools for use! Maybe you don't have the time right now to follow the videos and learn how to build these tools, or you just don't want to learn Excel right now. No problem! You can find the tools available in the resources tab for personal use.

Hope you enjoy the course and find the tools useful. Keep learning!

Young Entrepreneur & Education Enthusiast

Hi, my name is Vlad and I am 23 years old. I am married to my beautiful wife, Ana, with whom I chose to share and build my life in the beautiful country of Romania.

I come from an entrepreneurial family who inspired me to pursue the entrepreneur's life - one of self and lifelong learning, resourcefulness, proactiveness and future oriented.

This doesn't mean that I didn't follow a formal school. I graduated teh Faculty of Economics from "Al. I. Cuza" University of Iasi.

The student life was arguably the best time of my life. During those years I've found my love, Ana and also my passion in entrepreneursip and education. In my second year of Bachelor's degree, together with a good partner and friend and my wife, we've started a company that offered and still offers financial education for children, which is quite scarce in our country.

At the moment I have several entrepreneurial endeavors and I'm also working as a financial modeler. As part of this work I am working with Excel on a daily basis. Using Excel so often, I managed to learn the software and started to like it. Being passionate about teaching, I took what I knew in Excel and started finding ways to teach others and also offer to others useful, practical tools to use in their personal and professional life.

This course is the result of several intensive months of hard work in which I created 5 Excel tools that I hope will help you manage better your money, time and resources in general.
