How I Made $70,000 Using Excel Pivot Tables - 4/23/13
As seen on Howcast.com.
"Shir is a virtuoso teacher who makes Excel spreadsheets feel like a life-changing tool." - Charles B. (Founder & CEO, Donorschoose.org)
"The best Excel class I've ever taken and the first time I was able to apply newly taught skills the next day at work. I've saved HOURS thank to Shir!" - Michele O. (SVP Finance, Unified)
"Think of Shir as Obi Wan Kenobi, Excel is the Force, and you get to be Luke. Pretty cool for an evening!" - Georges J. (Master Teacher, Skillshare)
If you have no interest in becoming an Excel genius, close this window immediately and go back to checking your Facebook page for the next 45 minutes (it's okay...I've already done it today).
However, if the thought of flying through spreadsheets with Jedi-like precision causes you to drool on your desk with excitement, then read on.
First let me ask you this...
Believe it or not, that is precisely what I have helped dozens of my previous students achieve. But only those that actually applied what they learned in my classes.
Here's how it works...
In this 2 hour class, I will build an Excel spreadsheet in real-time based on student input. I will walk you through each step visually and verbally, explaining exactly what I'm doing as I'm doing it.
Think of it as the exact opposite of the character "Nick Burns, Your Company's Computer Guy" from Saturday Night Live.
Pretty unhelpful guy, right?
Now that you know what NOT to expect, let me give you a better idea of the kinds of spreadsheets we will create in class:
The real benefit of class however, will not come from the specific tool we create (although, everyone will receive a copy of it the next day).
Instead, it will come from the fool-proof system behind creating your own data tool on any subject in the future.
Think of it as "Grandpa Shir's Secret Recipe for a Productive Life." Sounds like a great cookbook, doesn't it?
Have I whetted your appetite for Excel yet? Are you still drooling with excitement?
Awesome. Go grab yourself a towel and let's wrap this up...
No matter which tool we create, we will cover the following Excel topics:
To sum it up...
If you don't leave the class with an uncontrollable urge to shout from the rooftop "Excel Rocks!" then something has gone horribly wrong and I will have to do some serious soul searching.
Then again, Excel really isn't for everybody, which brings me to my 100% money-back guarantee...
Attend all 2 hours of the class, and if you don't love it (for ANY reason) send me a single email, tell me how I can improve the class, and I'll refund ALL of your money. I'll even cover the Skillshare and PayPal fees, and we'll still part as friends.
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me directly at ShirAvivExcel@gmail.com. I respond to every single email personally.
See you behind the curtain!
THE NITTY GRITTY...
This class is designed for intermediate - advanced Excel users. If you use Excel every day and are looking for ways to turbo-charge your productivity and efficiency, this class is perfect for you. If you've never touched a spreadsheet before, this is NOT FOR YOU!
Either way, everyone who enrolls in this class must watch the following video: Absolute Vs. Relative Formulas
If you have no idea what's going on in this video, or feel overwhelmed, I recommend that you DO NOT enroll in this class.
Instead, I suggest watching all 29 FREE tutorial videos that I produced with Howcast
After watching the videos, the next class you should take is my Excel Foundations: Analyze the Past & Control the Future class.
Please note: You do NOT need a laptop for this class. I actually advise against trying to follow along on your computer, since I found it to be a distraction in most cases. Plus, I will send you the spreadsheet we create in class afterwards anyway. Simply bring something to take notes with.
Using Excel for financial models? I highly recommend Taylor Davidson's Financial Model class. He is an excellent instructor with tons of experience making financial models. Everyone also gets a ready-to-use template as part of the enrollment fee. Use discount code SHIR20 for 20% off.
When you're ready to translate your new Excel skills into actionable business analysis, I recommend Cassie Lancellotti-Young's Introduction to Cohort Analysis class; you can use the code SHIR15 to receive a $15 discount.
ALL ENROLLED STUDENTS MUST WATCH THE FOLLOWING VIDEO on "Absolute Vs. Relative Formulas:" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Gh-sRgV-DA&feature=share&list=SPA1EF3576D3E443C3. I highly recommend checking out the rest of the FREE video tutorials in that playlist (29 total).
Shir is the president of Shir Consulting, which helps small businesses use their existing data to uncover previously hidden insights & opportunities. He is also the former Marketing & Analytics Advisor for the New York Technology Council, has been featured as the Microsoft Excel Expert on Howcast.com, and has taught Excel classes at General Assembly.
When not tweaking spreadsheets, Shir can be found dancing Argentine Tango in NYC's vibrant Tango scene. He holds a BS in Business Administration from the University of Vermont.
