I Will Teach You Excel: Master Excel, surpass your co-workers, and impress your boss!

Ever get passed up for a promotion or pay increase and wonder, "why didn't I get it"? Ever wonder if your skills are good enough to compete in today's crowded job market? You work hard, go above and beyond and still can't seem to get noticed. Many of today's jobs require that you be familiar with Microsoft Excel. How can you become proficient at Excel when companies aren't willing to teach you this valuable skill?

This leaves many people trying to learn as they go and never quite feeling 100% comfortable with the program. What's worse, most people haven't even scratched the surface of Excel's potential, even if they've been using it for years. If you feel this way, you're not alone.

Think about this for a second; what will your career look like in a year if you don't take action today and improve your Excel skills? How about five years from now? Unless you take matters into your own hands things may not look much different.

According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, people who show proficiency in Microsoft Excel and other common office applications earn, on average, 13% more than those who don't. For most people this could mean tens of thousands of dollars over just a few years, and this doesn't even factor in lost promotions and job offers. Can you afford to leave so much on the table as a result of maintaining the status quo?

I've experienced this transformation in my career and can tell you first hand how it has helped me. When I was fresh out of college and working my first accounting job my manager asked me to complete a project that involved using VLOOKUPS. I enthusiastically obliged, walked back to my desk, and proceeded to panic. I tricked myself into thinking that I was an excel expert only because I knew a few formulas, my limited knowledge only scratched the surface. I turned to a college buddy for help; Google. I eventually managed to learn what I needed, after a lot of time and energy.

I've climbed the ladder and worn many hats since then. I can't say that the opportunities I've earned in my career are solely due to my increasing Excel proficiency. What I can definitely say is that Excel has earned me more opportunities to prove myself to management than waiting for opportunities to materialize on their own.

That's why I decided to write this book. My goal is to take you from Excel novice to master in the shortest time possible. I wrote my book specifically for the busy professional, in an easy to read manner that gets straight to the point and teaches the meat of Excel. I wrote this book for you.

>

I have helped many people improve their careers through Excel and now it's your turn. Here is what you get when you download my book:

-18 chapters of the most useful Excel techniques that will immediately take your skills to the next level

-Practical use cases plus downloadable workbooks so that you can take what you learn and feel, first hand, how to apply those skills to real world scenarios

-A FREE copy of my latest book on Google Sheets so you can stay ahead of the curve

You're at the point of decision. You can either continue down the path of least resistance, the path you have already been traveling, or you can choose the road less traveled. The path of least resistance will probably result in you getting the same outcomes you've always received.

But if you want something different to happen, if you want to change the direction of your career you're going to have to do something different. Make a choice now, pursue new outcomes.

Europe after the Minotaur: Greece and the Future of the Global Economy

Syriza's victory in the Greek general election in January 2015 is a truly historic and profound event - the first government of the radical left in Europe since World War Two. In this short ebook, extracted from the updated edition of The Global Minotaur, Yanis Varoufakis, the new finance minister of Greece and a Syriza MP, outlines his economic and political thinking and how he believes Europe can move beyond cuts and austerity.

Varoufakis shows how today's crisis in Europe is one inevitable symptom of a global 'system' which is now as unsustainable as it is imbalanced. With powerful clarity and conviction, he lays out the options available to us for reintroducing reason into a highly irrational global economic order.

This is a unique insight into the thinking of a key figure in the Syriza government, who is set to become a hugely influential figure in European politics.

Your Ebook is an Asset … if You Own the Copyright (Free Gifts for Indie Authors 4)

According to renowned American businessman and investor, Robert Kiyosaki, an "Asset can be anything as long as it has value, produces income or appreciates, and has a ready market. Assets put money IN your pocket." Before Kiyosaki's popular Rich Dad Poor Dad book was published, many of us viewed our homes as our own assets. But we now realize that, so long as we're paying a mortgage on it, our home is actually the bank's asset. It is producing a regular source of cash flow for the bank, but not for us.

This same concept applies when it comes to your book--depending on the format of book you choose to produce and which publishing model you choose to publish it through. I used to believe that all books were assets for their respective copyright owners, but I've since changed my tune. Digital ebooks and audiobooks have the potential to be lucrative assets, as do print-on-demand (POD) paperbacks and hardcovers. Mass-printed paperbacks and hardcovers, on the other hand, are straight-up liabilities due to the outdated economic practices still employed by the traditional players in our book supply chain. This long-established system repeatedly bleeds money from the pockets of publishers and authors alike which is why so many are now choosing to publish their titles in ebook format alone. It just makes better fiscal sense, as we'll discuss in this mini ebook.

Ebooks, in particular, can be highly profitable digital assets for both fiction and non-fiction authors, online marketers, and business professionals in general. Think about it from a strictly business perspective for a moment; you'll quickly see that an ebook is a portable business card that can be delivered instantaneously, anywhere in the world, for free or for sale, via email, blog, website, or ecommerce site. An ebook can be read in the comfort of one's home or office, during a commute by train or airplane, or even when standing and waiting in line. Ebooks are easily searchable documents that can be hyperlinked to other relevant information sources (e.g., company webpages, blogs), providing even more value to the reader. Ebooks are updateable which is especially helpful to those who wish to keep their information relevant and stay on top of the dynamic Internet. With a digital asset like an ebook, you don't have to pay storage or maintenance fees of any kind. Best of all, there are hundreds of thousands of affiliate marketers out there who are more than happy to help others promote and sell their digital assets all over the world. Pretty much every major ecommerce site has its own affiliate program now, and this is like having a massive sales team at your disposal without having to pay anyone an upfront salary.

Still not convinced that an ebook is an asset? Well, there is a form of online book sales and marketing known as "rapid release" publishing that many of today's most successful independent authors are using to sell literally thousands of ebooks every year. Ask them and they'll assure you an ebook is indeed an asset, and a highly fruitful asset at that.

China's Economic Transformation: Lessons, Impact, and the Path Forward

China's efforts to transition from an economy driven by investment and exports to one based on private consumption and services are roiling global markets. Its problems are compounded by an economic slowdown, rising debt levels, languishing real estate market, and lagging productivity growth. In these essays, scholars from the Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) recommend a number of reforms for Chinese leaders to consider, including steps to further open up its capital account and develop its financial markets. This collection of papers is part of a series of interactions and discussions between PIIE and the China Finance 40 (CF40) Forum, which began in 2012. The papers are intended to illuminate the challenges facing China as it engages increasingly with the global economy and builds on its phenomenal economic success of the past three decades.

ACCOUNTING BY CHOICE: A Simplified & Practical Guide to Double-Entry Accounting for SMEs

Accounting is the science and art of measuring and managing wealth. It is a science because its methods involve calculations and policies which are based on defined laws and principles; it is an art because some aspects of its operation and results are subject to judgments and interpretations. But often what we are served copiously is based more on academic aspects of accounting, meant to entertain or to impress.

This book is meant to teach you the principles, rules and policies of accounting, as well as the mathematics behind all the debits and credits - in theory and in practice. You will find several illustrations which are based on real life applications; you will find accounting entries that are rare, and you will find some of the important secrets your CPA will never let you know.

Written by a software developer with over 20 years experience in the design, development and implementation of general and bespoke accounting software for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs), this book might well be your own solution algorithm for mastering the science and art of accounting in theory and in practice.

In this revised edition, I have made series of corrections to the layout and presentation to make the book more readable and easy to understand. More worked examples have been introduced, and the International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) have been a given a chapter of its own. Almost all the chapters have received special touch.

The Arab Spring Five Years Later, Volume 1: Toward Greater Inclusiveness

The dilemma felt particularly by Arab youth was captured in Tunisia by the self-immolation in 2010 of Mohamed Bouazizi, who was frustrated by restrictions on his small street-vending business. Bouazizi's death became the catalyst that seemed to light up revolts throughout the Middle East. The frustration had been building for some time: large segments of society were denied economic progress, while the middle class was squeezed, and governments had cut back on services and public employment. Since the series of uprisings began, the debate in Arab countries has focused almost exclusively on politics and questions of national identity. In fact, economic issues are driving the agenda, and real economic grievances must be addressed in order for the many transitions to succeed. Ghanem gives a thorough assessment of the Arab Spring, beginning with political developments since the revolutions and changes in the legal and institutional frameworks that affect economies. Arab economies grew at healthy rates before the revolts, but the benefits of economic growth were unfairly distributed. The politically connected reaped great benefits, while educated youth could not find decent jobs, and the poor and middle class struggled to make ends meet. Ghanem advises that Arab countries need to adopt new economic policies and programs that enhance inclusiveness, expand the middle class, and foster growth in undeveloped regions. Key elements include strengthening economic institutions, developing small businesses, reforming the education system to better prepare Arab youth for the modern labor market, promoting gender equality with the objective of raising female labor market participation rates, and setting up programs for rural and regional development to reduce inequality and eliminate extreme poverty.

Presenting rigorous and original research, this volume offers key insights into the historical, cultural, social, economic and political forces at play in the creation of world-class ICT innovations in Kenya.

Written by engaged scholars and professionals in the field, the book offers 15 eye-opening chapters and 14 one-on-one conversations with entrepreneurs and investors to ask why establishing ICT start-ups on a continental and global scale remains a challenge on the "Silicon Savannah". The authors present evidence-based recommendations to help Kenya to continue producing globally impactful ICT innovations that improve the lives of those still waiting on the side-lines, and to inspire other nations to do the same.

Innovations in Quantitative Risk Management: TU München, September 2013 (Springer Proceedings in Mathematics & Statistics)

Quantitative models are omnipresent -but often controversially discussed- in todays risk management practice. New regulations, innovative financial products, and advances in valuation techniques provide a continuous flow of challenging problems for financial engineers and risk managers alike. Designing a sound stochastic model requires finding a careful balance between parsimonious model assumptions, mathematical viability, and interpretability of the output. Moreover, data requirements and the end-user training are to be considered as well. The KPMG Center of Excellence in Risk Management conference Risk Management Reloaded and this proceedings volume contribute to bridging the gap between academia -providing methodological advances- and practice -having a firm understanding of the economic conditions in which a given model is used. Discussed fields of application range from asset management, credit risk, and energy to risk management issues in insurance. Methodologically, dependence modeling, multiple-curve interest rate-models, and model risk are addressed. Finally, regulatory developments and possible limits of mathematical modeling are discussed.
