In 2002, I quit paid employment to launch my own business providing commercial Excel-VB software development solutions.
The market for this solution was non-existent at the time – in my country, Nigeria. People simply did NOT see what I saw. I got laughed at for YEARS for thinking and daring to SAY I believed I could sell MS Excel workbooks!
The idea sounded ludicrous to them, and quite a number felt they knew as much as I did about Excel, if not more.
But my passion and conviction kept me going, and I carefully identified gaps in the data recording, analysis, report generation fields in various markets, till I narrowed down to those where my solution could make a useful impact people would gladly pay for.
Today, I have a growing base of followers, prospects and clients from within and outside Africa…
Apart from verifiable evidence of client purchases I’ve shared in many true stories on this blog, the fact that professionals in various fields are joining my newly launched Excel-VB club, and referring colleagues and friends to signup as well (following the maiden edition of my FREE monthly Excel-VB workshop) lends credence to my claims.
The above proves that acquiring Excel-VB competence is now being seen as a worthwhile investment in this part of the world, that can boost your competitiveness in paid or self-employment as a professional in your field. This has been the case in developed societies across the world for over 2 decades: we in Africa have been left behind for so long!
If you’re self-employed, your spreadsheet automation competence will give you a seriously unfair advantage over your competitors, and help you deliver MORE value to clients in a way that makes them gladly pay you MORE.
In the phone/email based aspect of my one-on-one coaching, I will give you tips and insights you can use to make this happen.
I’m on a mission to empower (with a primary focus on Nigeria/Africa):
1. Job seekers/Employees/Career Persons to attract superior employment opportunities by demonstrating that they can boost productivity in the workplace using unique spreadsheet automation skills.
2. Independent Consultants/Self-Employed Professionals/Experts to win over high profile clients, by demonstrating that they can develop cost-saving, performance enhancing custom spreadsheet automation solutions for agreeable fees.
