If you're like me, you see tremendous value in developing your career in data analytics, big data and business intelligence. Companies need these skills more than ever.

But did you know  . . . 

 ** The hardest part of any useful business intelligence system is getting clean data **

This statement comes from my 20+ years of experience building data analytics systems at Fortune 500 companies. Let me share my secrets so you get much better at cleaning your analytics data.

____________________________________________________________________

My specialty is creating clean data using Excel Power Query and Power BI Query Editor for analysis and visualizations.  

I love this topic . . . Learn from me.  

> I read the software user manuals so you don't have to

> I enjoy teaching complex topics in a clear, simple manner

> I'm very involved in the analytics community as a member of Microsoft's Power BI User Panel, and a frequent speaker at Oracle analytics events 

Courses like mine are not widely available so I decided to create one. Thanks to the internet, a global audience now shares this knowledge.

Take my courses and enter a community of like-minded people who want everyone to succeed.  I will personally answer any question posted and provide frequent updates on what's happening in the Power Query and Power BI communities.  There is so much value here and I encourage you to join.
