Here in eastern Newfoundland, all this week we have been spoiled by unseasonably warm weather. Several record-breaking temps (20°C+) for October were awesome. It's hard to stay inside and work when each day could be possibly the last warm day we'll see around here for 6 or 7 months :(
Escaping the corporate world and getting control of my own time has turned out to be a double-edged sword. Yes, it's great not having someone else dictating what I do, but developing the entrepreneurial self discipline to do the things that I need to do rather than the things I feel like doing at any one moment has turned out to be much harder than I was expecting.
That's one skill I'll just have to keep working on.
Keep on Excelling,

A Super-Quick Trick to Convert Formulas to Values
Here's a super-quick way to convert your formulas to values that very few Excel users are aware of.
1) Select the cells containing formulas (must be one contiguous range);
2) Move your mouse to the edge of the selected range until the mouse pointer changes to a 4-headed arrow;
3) Using the right mouse button, click and drag the cells to the next column, BUT DON'T RELEASE THE MOUSE BUTTON YET. Keeping the mouse button pressed, drag back to the original location and release the mouse button.
4) Click the 'Copy Here as Values Only' option from the menu that pops up.
