Thank you, I am flying to Australia today!

Posted on April 27th, 2012 in personal - 23 comments

This is a personal note, not an Excel tip. So relax, grab a cup of coffee & read on.

Two years ago, If someone told me I would be flying to Australia & get handsomely paid to do it, I would have rubbished the thought. You see, exactly two years ago, I quit my job to work on Chandoo.org for full time.

My main focuses then were,

  1. to make sure my family would not starve or be deprived.
  2. to make you awesome in Excel

Today, #1 does not keep me up in the night. Thanks to you. You have supported Chandoo.org, purchased our products, spread good word about our site. This removed all my doubts & financial worries. Now, most of my work day is focused on making you awesome in Excel.

Thank you

I just want to thank you for your continued support. With out that I would not have  the courage to even dream about my Australian workshops, let alone actually selling them out.

 

Thank you, for inspiring me to learn & share

Thank you, for supporting what we do

Thank you, for showing new opportunities

Thank you, for enabling me realize my dreams

Thank you, for helping me get a car & house
