After I created a course on how to make printables in Microsoft Word, people started asking me how to make printables using Microsoft Excel.
If you’re one of those people, I’ve put together a beginners’ course to teach you how to get started making your own printables using Microsoft Excel!
No prior graphic design (or Microsoft Excel) experience is required.
By the end of the course you’ll be able to:
- Create a planner printable in a few minutes
- Create a complete planner from start to finish including daily planner, weekly planner, monthly calendars, to do checklist, important dates page, budget, bill due checklist etc.
- You can create a planner that is exactly to your liking – you get to choose if the week starts on a Sunday or Monday
- How to use a template (which I teach how to make in the ecourse) to create more printables
- Create planner printables at any size you like
- Make budgeting spreadsheets which you can print, or keep saved on your computer
- By the end of this course you’ll have a skill you can use to make your own planners year after year
