“Liberated! An Excel Expert's Library Of Insider Techniques And Insights To TAKE Your Excel Skills And Career To The Next Level”

Dear Excel friend,

These are some of the “insider” Excel techniques and wisdom I wish were around when I was starting out with data earlier in my career because…

…learning even one or two of these Excel concepts would have short-cut my success by… oh… five… maybe five years. Probably more.

If you want to gain the fundamental Excel knowledge that will increase job satisfaction, make you more valuable at your office and be considered for the next promotion, impress others in the office, or put with confidence on your resume, the fundamental skills such as VBA, dashboards, PivotTables, etc., to get a better job, then read every word of this page…

…because here you can get a magic (but legitimate) shortcut to becoming an Excel Expert.

In fact, you are going to discover more Excel techniques and knowledge than you actually need.

And here’s why…

…after working for 8+ years for the biggest construction company in Latin America, I decided to share with the Excel community some of the Excel secrets I used to get a promotion over promotion and that gave me Excel guru status in the office and gained me the respect of peers and arrogant bosses.

I decided to package all my Excel books, videos, checklists, blueprints, workbooks, etc., into a convenient Excel bundle you can access immediately.

And without paying a fortune in Excel training!

Announcing The Wizdoh Excel Gurus Academy (EGA).

The EGA is a community of serious Excel learners and a comprehensive library of Excel wisdom and techniques to definitely master Excel VBA and macros, dashboards, PivotTables, Data preparation, complex formulas, lookup formulas, and more.

What’s different from other Excel courses out there?

Most of the Excel courses out there are all about memorizing techniques and functions. And most courses out there don’t go deeper into the actual understanding of the context, psychology, mechanics and nuances of the Excel commands and tools (when used in real situations).

The EGA lessons will improve your thought process because they show you how to think like Excel and how to implement the tools and techniques step by step using simple language you can understand.

Most of the Excel courses are not organized toward higher education. The EGA takes you from beginner to guru on the crucial Excel skills such as VBA, dashboards, pivotables, advanced formulas, data cleaning, etc.

I put solid ground under your feet because I know we can’t go further if we know something halfway. I know that if you master the fundamentals of Excel, the rest will follow. You will understand all the ramifications and use the Excel tools in any situation.

Other courses about macros, pivottables, dashboards, and formulas assume you know a lot of things. I don’t take anything for granted that you should know. I explain it the way it is done to a kid.

What do you get when you enroll in the Excel Gurus Academy?

After you enroll, you get instant access to:

500+ in-depth lessons

You get immediate access to my private community forum and 500+ Excel Guru lessons that will show everything you need to know about VBA and Macros, PivotTables, Dashboards, VLOOKUP, Advanced Formulas, and much more…

"I'm not frighted of pivot tables anymore!!!!"

"My main role involves working with an MS Access Database, and exporting details from that via queries/reports to spreadsheets for distribution to various sections of our company.

However, I have recently taken on producing a dashboard for our team, which is shared with the government as well as the business! At the moment the dashboard is made up of lots of worksheets which produce tables on a “Dashboard” worksheet. There is a lot of work manipulating the data to produce an easily readable, meaningful and understandable dashboard for varying levels of management.

The Pivot Tables Seminar has given me lots of ideas of how the dashboard can be better produced, and hopefully be more dynamic rather than a monthly task! I’m not a data analyst but find manipulating the data on a dashboard to be fun (as far as work is!).

I will continue to follow your seminars, and have learnt a lot - I'm not frighted of pivot tables anymore!!!!

I find your training extremely useful and helpful, thank you"

"Categories and Data has been my big step forward."

I worked through the first half of one of the videos last night... What has really helped me is the point you make about the data items in the raw data being either Categories or Data. As soon as I thought about it, that made sense of a lot of my past experiences with PTs.

Obviously, my learning style is such that I need to “see” a pattern or organization in the data structure. “Categories and Data” slotted straight into that need. The box, fruit, and vegetables didn’t help me at all, but then I knew that idea of sorting and grouping from previous work on PTs in a past existence. But horses for courses, Categories and Data has been my big step forward.

And having the spreadsheet to play with, to try things out, has been great. It is much richer in Categories than anything I might have created for myself, and so makes it easier for me to see patterns emerging as I tick successive boxes on the right-hand side.

Many thanks for a good program.

Regards,"

"I must say that this is very valuable content. I have used many Excel tutorial books when I was starting off but yours is leagues above.
I never thought that somebody could give the Lookup function so much thought and studied it so much in depth. We could definitely benefit from your mega work.

What I like best in your book is the language; I really like the free flow expression of ideas through practical and easy to relate to illustrations…"

Abhishek Raju
Lead Researcher at Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore Area, India

Your book is my ”lookup bible"

"I view myself as an expert when it comes to Excel and using formulas, at least I thought so until I read your book. From a Vlookup perspective, I was very comfortable but your book goes beyond the basic Vlookup.

In my work with data tables, If the table was not in the right format to fit a Vlookup, I would arrange the data so that it would work.

After reading your book I am much more comfortable with a number of ways to lookup values from a table. Your book is my ”lookup bible”.

The ease of use of the book is very helpful and very friendly to use especially the How To with "the needle and haystack"

What Are Others Saying About John Franco And The Advanced Formulas Courses?

Hi John,

I got through the document and learned some new ways to think about formulas. Also looking forward to your upcoming chapters!...

Thanks again!

Good evening John,

I have downloaded the information and look forward to increasing my knowledge of Excel. Thank you very much for presenting these formulas classes. I only wish I had found them much earlier.

Hi, John,

I’m done with it already. It was easy to read and comprehend. I feel like I already knew most of the info, but it was nice to have it laid out step by step like you did it.

This is one step closer to my dream Excel learning idea: a set of Lego-like puzzle pieces that can be discretely moved around to fit the various possible configurations…such as, the Range “object” and the Range “property” for example. Doesn’t that sound like fun?

Thanks for all you do.

Best Regards,

I haven’t seen anyone using analogies to simplify Excel formula understanding.

Thank you for making the Megaformulas course. This has definitely improved my understanding on how formulas work. The best part of the course is the analogies used to explain the concept for clear understanding. I haven’t seen anyone using analogies to simplify Excel formula understanding.

The MMF is not only for Excel learners but also for masters to help improve understanding methodically.

3 new things I learned:

1. The importance of order of operators and parenthesis. This is very important for Mega formula construction and accuracy of the results.

2. Using the function wizard for finding bugs or errors in mega formulas and also to compute intermediate results of a function used in large formulas.

3. The simple techniques to build effective mega formulas (one example being how to remove external references in a mega formulas quickly)

3 doubts/fears I removed

1. Managing spreadsheet with Mega formula or nested formulas was a painful exercise, particularly when those excel workbooks were created by someone else. Now I know the techniques to deal with them…thank you John

2. Index and Match formulas were always tough for me to understand, MMF had made it really simple and easy to realize the power of these two functions combined together.

3. Nesting function itself was a complex thing earlier. Now I have much better clarity about nesting formulas due to the tip to see excel functions as connectors and arguments as ports (this simple analogy brings so much clarity)

I am already working on a spreadsheet now to use index and match to populate results / calculations automatically. I am also planning to merge few workbooks as a single workbook by using the technique of removal of external references. I will also use the bonus function library provided towards this.

The simplicity of your language with perfect analogies can only be found in your books / courses. The workbooks provided are also very useful to practically see the impact of a MMF.

Thank you for yet another gem from Wizdoh…. In short a must have course for any Excel user.

Please have a great day.

Is the EGA for you?

If you want to start your Excel guru journey, the EGA can make you a guru because it covers everything from scratch using simple, intuitive and in-depth lessons.

If you consider an Excel expert or guru and want to take your skills to the next level, you know that Excel Gurus don’t know VBA, lookups, advanced formulas, dashboards, pivottables, charts, halfway.  If you know something halfway or you need an edge, the EGA will help you deepen your Excel knowledge.

The Excel Gurus Academy is for you if you want any of these things…

  • Impress your boss and everyone in the office
  • Achieve self-realization through work
  • Earn more money with a new job or promotion
  • Help others in the office
  • Compete for and get high-level job/contracts/gigs
  • Make your reputation justifies your salary
  • Express your creativity
  • Have more confidence to face real world problems and to solve the problems by yourself
  • Be seen as an authority
  • Want to solve a particular bug or problem of your project
  • Make better decisions, support the decision making process
  • Upgrade your skills, your capacity
  • Show superiority to others
  • Relate to your intellectualism (not alienation)
  • Enjoy your work

  • Break free from soul-crushing projects and deadlines
  • Be ahead of deadlines
  • Escape the automatism of the Excel work
  • Be the go-to person for anybody with an Excel/data/dashboard related problem
  • Be in demand in the marketplace
  • Fill the voids, know things in deep

How much should you invest in this program?

You might be able to figure it all out on your own. Eventually.

Or you can take advantage of the 10+ years John’s already invested in hard work, researching, even meditating on the Excel fundamentals, testing and implementing Excel techniques.

There is absolutely no sane reason why you should want to waste years of your own life attempting to cover this same trial-and-error ground.

The Excel knowledge is scattered through books, forums, and blogs and synthesizing that information requires lots of work and motivation. You might spend months and end up with partial knowledge because gurus don’t have time to mentor you along the way and usually they don’t expose everything they know.

If you can get a better job or a promotion with these in-demand data skills, the price of this Excel bundle is ridiculous.

If you get the programs separately, you would pay USD 1000+.

If you attend several crowded Excel seminars to cover ALL these topics, you would pay $5000, and pay extra for the travel and hotel expenses. And seriously, you won’t cover what is covered here. And you won’t have rich material to study after the training is gone.

If you act now, you get access to The “Excel Guru Bundle” program and bonuses for only…
