This course put me on the road to my dream. You walk in knowing very little and you walk out an expert. It enriches your life, adds a skill to your skillset, and gives you a new way to look at data.

I love analysing data and have already battled through the different courses and teachings. This for me just cemented that I am on the right track, and now with the new knowledge, the small wins for me will lead to my big win.

Tanya Coetzee, Senior Financial Manager

After taking two Power BI courses from different providers, I was finally successful in introducing Power BI and all its capabilities to my superiors; however, at that time, I was still not fully prepared for setting up the data model and especially publishing the report to the Power BI service. Luckily, last autumn, your long-awaited Power BI course came along, and this brought me over the top.

This March, I introduced the Power BI report first in headquarters and then rolled it out to the different countries. The report and the capabilities have had great reactions throughout the company. It looks like I have been starting a new stage, a new age of reporting in the company… :-)

Stefan Messner, BI and Reporting Specialist

It’s Time to Leave the Excel Safe Zone!

So many Excel users want to switch to Power BI but hit a wall. I call this being stuck in the “Excel Safe Zone.”

Hey, I get it. You’ve been using Excel for years.

You’re comfortable with Excel, its formulas, and its reports. You can perform most tasks blindfolded.

There’s a switching cost when it comes to learning a new tool.

And what about when you have a tight deadline? Are you really going to hop over to a tool you barely know?

Heck no. You’ll stick to what’s tried and true.

Please, don’t do anything to put your job in jeopardy. When you have a tight deadline, stick to what you know.

But let’s look past these tight deadlines and think more long term.

Do you really want to keep reverting to Excel every time you give Power BI a shot?

When will you set aside the time to make sure your skills stay sharp?

My advice is to dig your well before you’re thirsty.

Because if you don’t learn Power BI, rest assured, other people are. We have thousands of them among my students and YouTube subscribers.

And they are the ones who will reap the benefits going forward. They will be first in line for promotions, pay raises, and praise.

You can be one of them. And if you begin now, while we’re still in the early days, you can be the one getting high-fives at the lunch break.

Great introduction to Power BI and you took away my hesitations to learn beyond Excel.
Raj de Zoysa
I have attended few Power BI trainings but never had someone like you who beautifully linked Excel to Power BI and made it feel like it was just an extension to what we know already.
Anand

I am now the go-to guy in my company when it comes to Power BI, Excel, and Power Query.

I feel more confident and motivated to keep learning about Power BI and DAX. I also want to share my knowledge with my colleagues so we can leverage the use of Power BI in our company.

The course was a very detailed course encompassing DAX, Visualizations, Data Modeling, Power Query, and its integration with Power Automate for automatic and manual triggers. It even covered licensing, which can be a bit confusing.

Job Posting of the Future:
“MUST KNOW POWER BI”

Mass adoption of Power BI is happening. Just compare the two graphs below. Microsoft is pulling away from the pack.

Power BI Gartner magic quadrant
Gartner Magic Quadrant Analytics & BI Platforms

First released in 2011, Power BI is just now hitting the mainstream.

Power BI reports and dashboards are spreading in popularity.

Think of it this way…

It’s like when the iPhone hit in 2009. Once someone saw a smartphone, they never want to go back.

Power BI reports will soon become the standard.

Are you ready to trade your flip phone for a smart phone?

It’s time to futureproof and accelerate your career by learning Power BI.

The writing on the wall is clear: When it comes to analyzing data, the days of Excel being the preferred solution are coming to an end.

Yes, it may sound scary leaving the familiarity of Excel, but you can do this.

What Happens When Twenty Carpenters Can Swing a Hammer – But Nobody Can Operate the Nail Gun?

The person who learns the nail gun becomes the star of the show.

I bet your organization has plenty of Excel power users, but how many know Power BI?

What happens when your senior executive asks:

“Give me a dashboard that lets me click and drill down on the chart to see weekly values!”

The Excel safe-zoners will be stuck with their hands in the pockets. But you? You’ll be pointing your laser pointer at the screen, showing your boss exactly where to click for his drill-down.

That’s how you make a name for yourself!

Look, you’re already doing great work in Excel. But so much of your work gets hidden behind the scenes. That’s a limitation of Excel.

Everything you’re doing from importing data, to cleaning columns, to creating reports, it’s hard work that fails to get recognized.

Power BI pushes your hard work to the surface so everyone can see what went into it.

I have learned a lot from the course and will share with my boss and my team members about the advantages and strengths of Power BI application. I now have a thorough understanding of the end-to-end process for a Power BI application.

The course provided very comprehensive details of the practical features and functionality of data visualization using Power BI.

I feel much more confident that I will immediately apply what I learned to improve the work process at my job and enhance the quality of my work.

I learned from this experience what Power BI can do. Even if I struggle to make something, I know I can always refer to what I’ve learned in this course.

I was updating and implementing more professional tools in an existing company report while following your course. The result is a “woaw” effect each time others refresh the report 😊.

Thanks for the time you spent making such a professional course. I’ve seen many others on various topics, but your courses are clear, easy to follow, and straight to the point. Stunning!

Three Misconceptions about Power BI

If you’ve read this far, I congratulate you on being open to Power BI.

You’re not the norm. Most people stay inside their comfort zone, phone it in at work, and have zero interest in advancing their skills.

That’s what I love about our audience: You’re always wanting to learn more.

Still, you may not be completely sold on Power BI. Some common myths are floating around that keep Excel pro’s from making the leap.

Let’s clear those up right now, shall we?

1

Misconception – “Power BI Is An Advanced Tool”

No! You don’t need to be a coder or a techie to use Power BI!

This myth really bugs me.

Look, Power BI may look scary, but it’s harmless. If you can use Excel, you can use Power BI.

The reason it scares people off is the way it’s often taught.

You see, one of our core pillars here at XelPlus is to teach the simple stuff first. Which is different than how most instructors teach.

Most instructors lead with the “super techie” techniques, most of which you’ll never use at work.

Not us. We know you’re busy at work and need to prioritize what you learn. That’s why, inside our courses, we always start with practical use cases – not the super techie stuff.

Our Power BI training will be no different.

Staring with your first lesson, you’ll see Power BI is nothing to be feared. Instead, you’ll think, “Where have you been all my life?

The course has also reinforced my thoughts that Power BI will be a very useful way to distribute reports throughout the business. It will also be a lot faster than building equivalent reports in Excel. I intend to convert my existing Excel reports to Power BI.
Laurie Flanders

Misconception – “Power BI Is Only For Dashboards”

When most people think of Power BI, they think of dashboards.

That’s understandable, given these flashy dashboards you’re seeing on YouTube. But Power BI is about more than dashboards.

Power BI is first and foremost about creating reports. Your first report may be a table. “But I can do that in Excel!”, you’re saying.

Yes, but these Power BI tables are not your ordinary tables. These are like Excel tables on steroids. You can click on a table row and automatically filter the rest of the data on your page.

That’s impossible to do in Excel. But in Power BI, it’s only three clicks.

How is this possible? Because of the underlying Power BI technology, and the way it interacts with your data.

The Microsoft team, in a stroke of brilliance, found a way to make dynamic reports as simple as click-click-click-DONE.

How much time might that save you each week?

3

Misconception – “Power BI Doesn’t Offer Me Anything I Can’t Already Do in Excel”

It’s true, Power BI may not be for you.

Here are three questions to determine if Power BI can help:

  1. Does your company want to analyze data on a monthly or annual basis? For example, looking at how product sales have performed over the past three years?
  2. Does your company want to segment your data? For example, drilling down by different categories?
  3. Does your company want to see a bunch of different metrics, like weighted averages, medians, counts, and max and min?

If you answer “yes” to any of those, Power BI should be an essential step in your workflow. In Excel …

  • You can’t create custom tooltips
  • You can’t cross-highlight
  • You can’t create quick measures, and instead, need to write lengthy DAX formulas (Power BI writes the DAX formulas for you)

To go back to our phone analogy…

Trying to perform these tasks in Excel is like trying to access the internet from a flip-phone. You can do it, but boy does it hurt.

I’m Leila.
Nice to meet you.

I love spreadsheets, BI tools, and anything tech related. Our motto at XelPlus is Always Be Learning.

Learning new things opens up new possibilities. It’s about more than just acquiring knowledge; it’s about growing as a person and as a professional.

One of the perks of being a Microsoft MVP is that each month, I hop on a special video call with the Microsoft team. They fill us in on all the latest features coming down the pipeline.

I love these calls and leave them as excited as a kid on their birthday.

But I also ask myself this question: “How is this going to impact business users?”

My career journey began as an Economist in Canada. I then moved to Austria and went into business consulting where I worked extensively with SAP and Oracle systems. I’ve tackled the kind of challenging projects that you might be dealing with right now.

I’m here to share my expertise with you, so you can conquer data, save precious time, get that promotion and excel in your career – no matter how complicated it might seem.

Click this button to get started

What if you’re Already an Excel Power User?

Today’s world is changing fast, and managers are looking for employees who can adapt.

Can you blame them?

Who would you choose for the promotion? The employee who only knows Excel? Or the person who can jump effortlessly from Excel to Power BI?

You’d choose the full-stack data analyst, of course.

If you’re already an Excel power user, don’t stop your learning journey now.

As Warren Buffett says:

The best investment you can make is an investment in yourself. The more you learn, the more you’ll earn.

Don’t Use Excel Much?

No problem! This course is about Power BI and everything you need to know to get started fast.

The side benefit is that by the time you’re done with this Power BI training, you’d also have leveled up your Excel skills because there’s an overlap with Power BI and the Power side of Excel.

You learn one tool and end up mastering two!

But Leila, Why Learn Power BI from You?

You have plenty of options for learning Power BI, so why enroll in our new course?

For starters, as with all our courses, you’ll benefit from our XelPlus 3-pillars of teaching.

Pillar 1 – We Speak Plain English

We don’t use jargon or “smart sounding” words when simple words will do. We start with the easy stuff to get you hooked. Then, you can go deeper.

We don’t scare you away by showing you the nerdy details right out of the gate.

Pillar 2 – We Give You Real World Examples

Power BI is meant to solve real world problems.

“What is this data trying to tell us?”

“What are we missing?”

“What should we do after this meeting?”

Some teachers are afraid to go there. They feel safe with theory.

Not us. We come from the trenches of industry.

We don’t shy away from real world examples. We lean into them.

Pillar 3 – We Show You the Big Picture

I’m the type who needs to see how everything fits together.

After all, nothing exists in a silo.

Some courses only show you how to use Power BI Desktop. Some only teach you Power BI Service. Others show you how to create beautiful reports.

In our course we teach you both Power BI Desktop and Service. And yes, we show you how to create stunning visuals, but we also show you there is far more to Power BI.

As an XelPlus student you’ve been learning one tool after another.

Power BI is a new and extremely powerful tool in your digital workshop. We not only show you how to use Power BI but how it fits into this larger collection of tools.

Thank you, Leila and XelPlus team, for this outstanding class. The rhythm, flow, and content – are perfect.

Power BI was one challenge I left out for last! You made it possible.

You were able to walk me through the complexities of the various BI interfaces and licenses and make them accessible to any learner.

The quizzes are humbling reminders that this is a journey.

Yves Seybel, Consultant

This is The Fast Track to Power BI

This is not the “Dive right into the super advanced stuff that nobody uses” Power BI course.

It’s the Fast Track to Power BI course.

That means you’ll be up and running with only the most useful parts of Power BI. That way, you can start using Power BI at work immediately.

Sure, we get into some advanced stuff. Eventually. But you don’t need to – and shouldn’t – begin with the advanced stuff.

You’re busy, and we designed this course for the busy person.

So yes. The course is called “Fast Track to Power BI” because it gets you started fast – but it does include the Expert Lane as well!

You’re practically getting TWO courses with this SINGLE course.

After watching less than 2 hours of the course, you can actually go out and start creating nice-looking dashboards by slicing and dicing!

Your Course Roadmap to Becoming Power BI Fluent

Start with the Fast Track lane to learn Power BI FAST – and then continue to the Expert lane when you’re up for it.

You get both the Fast lane and the Expert lane in this ONE course. I’ve laid it out for you below.

Even though we’ve named the course “Fast Track to Power BI”, we don’t leave you on your own after introducing you to Power BI. No – we take you all the way to the Expert lane when you’re ready.

XelPlus Power BI learning path to make sure you get the most of Power BI right away
XelPlus Roadmap for “Fast Track to Power BI” course.

Before I took the course, I wondered whether I would get a return on my investment, both in terms of time and money. Now, with confidence, I can say I got way more than I expected. The benefits are priceless. You see, some time ago I decided to learn Power BI, but after a few months I was still struggling with the basics. This course gave me clarity and direction.

The course is very well structured and delivered flawlessly. There are also lots of tips to avoid errors and ensure the user maintains a clean and traceable trail of the work done.

Honestly, this was one of the best courses I have attended. You have shared a wealth of knowledge and put it all together so well. The examples highlighting various pitfalls and how to navigate through them were excellent. You also shared the multiple ways a situation could be approached and how to choose the one that is the simplest and would support the future building or updating of the report.

The Risk in Clinging to Excel

5 Things Will Happen If You Don’t Make the Switch to Power BI

Clinging to Excel is not the way you want to advance your career. The history books are filled with stories about people and companies who cling too long to one thing.

The switch to Power BI is coming, whether you want it to or not. If you don’t tackle this now, here’s what you can expect.

  1. You won’t be able to take on new projects.
  2. When your boss asks for a nice visualization you’ll say, “Sorry, I’ve only got Excel charts.” It’s like a restaurant customer ordering a filet mignon, and you bring out a McDonald’s hamburger. Don’t disappoint them!
  3. You’ll have to rely on the IT department. Enough said! It takes forever for them to get to your task – if at all.
  4. You’ll miss out on chances to contribute to the company and impress your higher-ups.
  5. You won’t be as competitive as other people if/when it comes time to find a new job.

The future of data analysis is storytelling and making sense of the data. You can’t blame management for wanting more actionable data.

The question is: Will you adapt? Or will you cling to the past and become outdated?

I had long been looking for the right course to become available and since I have followed your Excel videos over the last few years, I had no doubt that yours will be the right one for me knowing what to expect from experience.

I had previously used Power BI to create some work-related reports; however, I was severely limited in various aspects of modeling and creating visuals, among other things.

This course helped me tremendously with many new options that are now available to me, and I have taken note of the various possibilities that I will certainly use in the future, like using Power Query for the “12 month” filtering, grouping the KPIs, etc., just to mention two.

That was why I enrolled in the first place, and your course helped me achieve what I wanted and much more. I also found the course to be exceptionally well presented, very professional, and easy to follow.

Yes, you can take this course by reading it.

Power BI Report For Fiscal Reporting

Not everyone works in a company where the reporting year starts in January. Due to popular demand we’ve created a Power BI sample report based on fiscal periods. We’ve also added instructions on how you can adjust it to fit your reporting needs.

I use Power Tools in Excel frequently and have used Power BI enough to realize its potential. I firmly believe this is a tool that is essential for professionals going forward.

I have taken Leila’s courses before, they are fantastic and I have never been disappointed. From this course, as expected, I picked up techniques that I wasn’t aware of and understand many concepts much better! I learned more about the flexibility of Power BI.

Leila did a fabulous job of creating scenarios and explaining how to figure them out. I gained much more awareness of the tool and what Power BI can do. As I encounter situations, I now have a knowledge base to explore further. Outstanding course!

This course has been an invaluable starting point to get going with Power BI.

There is enough detail to get me started without being overwhelmed. I now have a great base to build on. Leila’s teaching style works well for me, making learning a pleasure.

The course has also reinforced my thoughts that Power BI will be a very useful way to distribute reports throughout the business. It will also be a lot faster than building equivalent reports in Excel. I intend to convert my existing Excel reports to Power BI. This will negate having to email them out all the time.

I taught myself Excel and VBA and started producing production reports for the manufacturing company I work for. The reports were well received and ultimately led to a smoother flow of production, time savings, and even increased production.

After discovering XelPlus on YouTube, I decided to increase my knowledge and enrolled in the Power Query and Power Pivot courses, which, in turn, improved my reports.

This did not go unnoticed, and I recently got promoted to the IT/Finance department as a Product and Pricing Systems Analyst. I truly believe that Leila and some other content creators, deserve some of the credit for my progress. Thank you!

I used to create very basic charts only; now I can automate many reports that I can also view on mobile. I can tell that I have leveled up in my company; I am being looked at differently by the management in a very respectful manner.

Looks like you have done it again: great practical explanations; great overview; great quiz and practice exercises.
