Have you tried improving your Excel-skills, only to give up?
Are you short on time?
If so, you’re not alone!
Recently, I polled our +50,000 subscribers and asked them:
“What’s holding you back from achieving the skills you want in Excel?”
They gave 2 answers:
Answer #1: They had already tried improving their Excel-skills. But Excel was too overwhelming and confusing. They had given up!
Answer #2: They lacked the time necessary. Our readers had been told they needed to set aside several hours per day before making any progress.
To be honest, those answers didn’t shock me.
I experienced the same when I started learning Excel 7 years ago…
Everyone expects you to know your way around Excel. But nobody takes the time to teach you the ins and outs of Excel.
+90% achieved their current Excel-skills from a grueling try-fail-persevere approach.
Albeit noble, it’s very ineffective (and extremely frustrating!).
It Took Me 7 Years to Learn Excel. It’ll Take You 14 Hours.
7 years ago, I faced a choice:
- Learn Excel to get the job opportunities of my dreams
- Give up on learning Excel and hope I’d figure something out
I figured it’d be career suicide not to learn Excel, so I went with 1!
🤔 “But where to start?” 🤔
Excel is the most advanced, mainstream, software available.
Excel has +300 shortcuts, +400 functions, along with hundreds of different features.
I remember feeling so overwhelmed by all the formulas, functions, and options.
Also, I didn’t have anyone who could help me out and tell me what to do.
The Journey to Learning Excel Begins…
I started learning Excel by “Googling” and searching for videos on YouTube.
I could only hope what I read and watched was correct.
Fast-forward to 4 years later, and I had achieved a decent skill level in Excel.
I finally started thinking “Hey, I’m quite good at this!”.
This was the most awesome feeling ever😁
– I no longer feared every task my boss sent me.
– I didn’t have to embarrass myself by asking my colleagues for help.
– I didn’t get angry with Excel for not doing what it was “supposed to”.
At the same time, I couldn’t help but think:
It shouldn’t take 4 years to go from zero to “okay”…🤔
Fast-forward to today, 7 years later from when I first started learning Excel, and I am much more than “Okay”.
Today I’m a certified Microsoft Office Specialist🎓
50,000+ people have signed up for my courses, and 400,000+ read my tutorials every month.
I’ve worked as a consultant charging $160/hour to create Excel-systems for businesses of all sizes.
All this experience has given me the skills to take a student (you!) from zero to hero in just 14 hours.
How Would Learning Excel Impact Your Life?
This might be an odd question but think about it for a second.
What if you achieved such skill in Excel, that no matter what your boss or colleagues asks of you, you could confidently say “Thank you!”…
… Then go to work and (over)deliver a result that nobody else in the company can?
The 4 Things That Happen When You Learn Excel
“What, exactly, happens when you learn Excel?”
Having taught Excel to +50,000 students, I’ve seen 4 things come up again and again:
1: Increase your salary.
When you become better, you become more invaluable. You transform yourself from just being an employee to an asset for the business. This gets rewarded.
2: An easier stress-free workday.
When you’ve completed our training, it’s not uncommon to become 2-10x more productive in Excel. Imagine doing your current Excel-tasks in half the time? It’s very possible!
3: Get promoted + better job opportunities.
Better skills mean you can handle more complex tasks. This enables you to scale the corporate ladder much quicker.
4: Impress your boss and get ahead of your colleagues.
Everyone expects you to be an Excel-superuser, yet few are. You can be one of those few, who masters the spreadsheet. This is guaranteed to impress your boss and cause great envy from your colleagues.
The 3 Things You Must Avoid When Learning Excel
Achieving this sort of skill in Excel doesn’t happen by itself.
There are tons of roadblocks you must avoid – as well as misinformation.
Here are my 3 not-to-dos when learning Excel:
1: Lack of structure.
Having the right structure isn’t optional – it’s a must. The correct structure and sequence make it 10x easier to improve your Excel-skills.
2: Focus on everything.
With hundreds of functions, formulas, and options, Excel is overwhelming. Many things are completely unnecessary to focus on. But there are a handful of crucial things. Knowing the difference between “unnecessary” and “crucial” is the hard part.
3: YouTube and onsite training.
YouTube is great for cute cat videos, but learning Excel? Not so much. YouTube lacks structure, quality, assignments, and a whole lot more. Onsite training can be great in a few situations, but with any skill, repetition is key. Onsite training doesn’t provide you with that option (and it’s super expensive as well).
So, what’s the solution then? 🤔

You Watch TV for +4 Hours… Why Not Spend 15 Minutes Learning Excel?
Surveys show that people watch TV for 4 hours a day 📺
We get it… it’s much more fun to watch TV than learning Excel.
But you don’t need to spend 4 hours a day to learn Excel.
