What is excelerator.solutions?

Howdee!   My name is Ryan Clouse and I’m so happy you discovered my site.  I’m an analyst living in the Midwest with an extremely nerdy love for all things Excel.  I graduated from college thinking everything I learned in my one Microsoft Office class made me an expert in how to use a spreadsheet.  Wow, was I wrong!  My first day in the post college workforce I got handed my first Excel tool developed by a real Excel pro (we’ll call him Dave).  It absolutely blew me away with how much someone could accomplish with a spreadsheet.  I quickly made friends with Dave and tried to learn as much as I could from him.  Dave was, as I would soon learn about everyone in this community, extremely open and patient with someone who didn’t even know how to use the format painter at that time.  Fast forward five years later, and I’ve been called everything from an “Excel Ninja” to simply “The Creator” by my colleagues.  


The help I received from folks out there willing to share their knowledge was central to my success, not only in learning Excel, but also in my career.  Now I feel like it’s my turn to start giving back to the community that has given me so much over the years.  In founding this website, I have one goal…to have the same impact on someone that Dave had on me. I want someone else to get a coworker of the month award for being an Excel Ninja.  In order for that to happen, learn the following five things:


  1. Automate! Automate! Automate! So many Excel tasks can be automated with surprisingly little VBA knowledge and even less code.
  2. Be the “go-to-guy” that your colleagues always “go to” for Excel solutions.
  3. Create all the templates! You should be able to create templates that can be widely adopted by even the most novice of users.
  4. Be an analysis junkie.  Since you’re here, you probably already enjoy analysis.  Let’s learn how to spend less time doing the analysis and more time analyzing the results!
  5. Last, but certainly not least, do your RESEARCH!  Anyone who tells you research isn’t a skill is either lying to you or has spent the last two decades on an island without access to Google.  Being able to do even basic research will put you way ahead of your peers.


If this sounds like what you’re looking for, then please check out my blogs, tutorials, and templates.  While you’re at it, sign up for my weekly newsletter (I’ll never share your e-mail with anyone).  My goal is to share quick tips and tricks through this newsletter while saving the more complex and in-depth VBA (and even non-VBA) topics for my blog posts and tutorials. Please feel free to comment and get engaged.  If you know of a better way to do something, please share!  No one, and I mean no one, knows absolutely everything about Excel. There is simply too much knowledge for any one person to know it all.  One of my favorite things about Excel is that there are dozens of ways to do things. It all depends on your specific challenge. So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to begin your training.
