Never Be Intimidated by Excel Again

I might be a little crazy.

You see, not only do I want to teach you Excel, but also give you applicable teachings beyond the spreadsheet in as little amount of time as possible.

Excel is a tool. A means to an end.

If you put too much emphasis on the tool itself, you could miss out on opportunities. These opportunities require proper presentation and positioning.

Hello and welcome to Excel for Busy People.

Learning Excel could potentially take a ton of time as it is. There are many courses out there that offer a complete A-to-Z experience that’s only 25 hours long (sarcasm rising).

Stack other value-added items like we’re talking about here and that means we have an Excel course that’s 50 hours long. Right?

I believe in having many courses on the subject separated by the complexity and peppering real-world advice to help you learn. This makes it even easier to get through the curriculum and keeps students more engaged.

Right now, I have the beginner curriculum developed. I’ll get more content rolling as we get feedback from you fantastic, beautiful people.

To see the current beginner curriculum for Excel, see below or go directly to the course page.

He is really great.


Loved it.


Course seemed remedial at first but was a good match for new as well as experienced employees learning Excel because it built on that beginning to teaching more advanced uses of skills.


The course gave an easily-digestible introduction to Excel and the tricks to take it to the next level and has certainly left me better informed than i was before I took the course. This fits in a nice section that is often missing on this site… you have all these beginner excel courses that dont go into enough detail on the formulas and other tools that excel was actually designed for, and then you have the most advanced excel classes that skip over some of the key pieces the first class didn’t teach you. This is the class when you not only want to learn the tools, but when and how to apply them to real world scenarios. Kudos to the instructor!


So simple to follow and in depth explanation with examples, references and external resources. If you are planning to learn Excel, start with this and keep working on the shortcuts to get better and better on an ongoing basis. A must take course on Udemy.
