5 Responses to “CP047: Best Excel tools for Entrepreneurs”
Totally agree. Excel can be the 'swiss army knife' for small businesses. Thanks.
there is no like button - but I agree to your comment 100%
Thank you. In reality, most small and large businesses use Excel for various things for which there are specialized software. Learning just one application (Excel) will give one the skill set needed to tackle several different business application needs. Even if one is not an expert in Excel, a beginner level knowledge is sufficient when using pre-built templates available.
This is indeed a fantastic tool and small businesses need to embrace it. Indeed the analysis possible with excel is limitless.
