A bar chart in Excel is basically a column chart turned on it's side. The benefit of a bar chart is that it adds emphasis to differences in values because the bars stretch farther across the page.

In this lecture we'll create a bar chart and we'll do some additional formatting to it to make the data really stand out.

Create a Bar Chart

Pie charts are great for showing percentages and how each individual part relates to the whole. In this lecture I'll show you how to create a pie chart in Excel from scratch. I'll also show you how you can easily convert an existing chart, such as the bar chart we created in the previous lecture, into a pie chart to save on formatting.

Create a Pie Chart

Line charts are best used to represent the change in a value over time. A good example of this is monthly sales numbers for a whole year. In this lecture I'll first show you how to quickly change our existing bar chart into a line chart. Then I'll show you how to use a new spreadsheet containing dates and sales numbers so you can see the best use of a line chart in Excel.

Introduction to Excel Formulas and Functions
5 Lectures 27:31
This lecture defines a formula and shows you how a formula can help you do calculations in Excel.
Preview 02:00

A function is a piece of predefined code that you can use as part of your formula to increase the power of your calculations. This lecture shows you the power that a function has over simple formulas. It also shows you where to find functions and how to use them.
What is a Function?

In this lecture I break down a basic formula into 6 main parts and show you how each part behaves as part of a formula.

The anatomy of an Excel formula is all of the numbers, words and symbols that make up a formula. These are all very important to understand because it enables you to create, modify or correct formulas to do the big calculations for you, saving you lots of time and effort.

This lecture will answer these questions:

  • What is the equals sign for in an Excel formula?
  • What do the parentheses do in an Excel formula?
  • How do you write the cell reference as a range of cells?
  • What is an operator?
  • What order of operations does Excel follow?
The Anatomy of a Formula

This lecture will show you some strategies and shortcuts to quickly and easily select cells for use in your formulas.
Preview 03:46

Most formulas that you create in Excel reference relative cells by default. However, by creating absolute cell

references you can incorporate a fixed cell into your equation while

still being able to copy the formula to other cells. This lecture

will show you the difference between absolute and relative cell

references, and it will show you

useful ways to use them in formulas.

Absolute vs. Relative Cell References

Learning is easier if you are given the right tools and instruction. In every one of my courses I take my students step-by-step through the tools and knowledge they need to accomplish their goals.

Whether I am teaching How to Publishing Kindle eBooks, How to Learn Excel, or How to Create Killer Content for the Web I always share an inside view of my knowledge about the subject. You get access to all of my secrets.

For over 10 years I have studied strategies to create passive income and how to use passive income to vastly improve the quality of your life.

I have tested many different strategies from investing in rental real estate to building niche websites about my hobbies to publishing Kindle eBooks. I have studied what works and what doesn't work, and I have narrowed my research down to the strategies that work the best for creating financial freedom and an improved quality of life.

Each of my courses is designed to share my hard-earned secrets with you. 

I hold nothing back. I won't bore you with all of the strategies that didn't work. I'll get right into the exact steps that I have taken to be successful so that you have the opportunity to replicate them.

Of course, it's no secret that one of my favorite ways to generate truly passive income is through publishing Kindle eBooks. I have published over 100 eBooks and published five of those in print. Many of my books have been bestsellers including my own pottery book The Despicable Five.

Once I developed my Kindle publishing system, learned some formatting secrets, and learned how to use some simple SEO skills, publishing eBooks became remarkably simple.

Even hiring writers, which would seem scary at first, is really easy and even fun when you follow my system. 

Using my system, you can publish one or two books and then roll the profits from them into hiring people to write more books for you, so you aren't taking any money out of your pocket.

It starts out as a little passive income snowball and as you add the profits back into the snowball it grows and grows until you are seeing a surprising and exciting amount of passive income.

I retired in 2014 thanks to my eBook publishing success. Now, I'm using my spare time to find the best ways to create passive income. As I find great ways to make money from home I'm more than happy to share what I learn with you.

You'll notice that my new favorite way to create passive income is teaching courses on Udemy. Check out my Udemy Course Creation course to see why I love it so much!

I am here to guide you on your way to success. You can contact me at any step of the way for assistance, even if you're unsure whether my course is the perfect fit for you. Let me know your concerns and I'll point you in the right direction, even if it's to someone else's course.

I'm always happy to help.

Are you ready to take your skills to the next level? It all starts with knowledge, and my courses make that part easy for you.
