A small introduction to my Website

First of all, Welcome to my website – xlguru.in

Over here you will find important articles and courses on below topics as I thrive to make you EXCEL in below topics.

  1. Microsoft Excel and its real life applications (not only introduction to functions which you come across regularly)
  2. Productivity, Time Management and related technology
  3. Outsourcing/Freelancing (to show you the path to acquire long term overseas clients from your current setup itself)

About Me

I am CA Dhaval Paun , a practising Chartered Accountant since 2011. I am based in small town Rajkot in Gujarat.

I moved to Mumbai for about 8 years when I was just 16 for graduation and CA. I have worked with Chandabhoy & Jassobhoy – a medium size CA firm for 3 years as an Article Assistant. And that was the most experience gathering part of my life. I also worked for Globeop Financial Services – a leading Hedge Fund Administrator across Globe, after qualification for more than a year. I left the job and Mumbai in 2012 and started my practice in Rajkot.

Since my Article-ship days I was passionate about Microsoft Excel and always indulge in saving time and increase productivity using various Advance Excel features.

I am also very much interested in exploring modern areas of practice like Outsourcing/Freelancing. I have experimented in my first year of practice with Outsourcing/Freelancing and achieved ways more than the regular job (a huge $18,000+) but not only in terms of money but skills and contacts that I developed across globe are a huge bonus.

After working with a San Francisco based start-up for more than a year and also guiding professionals to get started in outsourcing field, I realised that the main differentiator in finding success in Outsourcing Profession or even Local Professional Practice is not only the skills but the “Productivity” and “Time/Task Management” which can mainly be achieved through latest technology.

Nowadays I have started developing online video courses for educating Finance Professionals in India as well as across Globe. I have launched two websites www.xlguru.in and www.smartcapractice.com on which you can subscribe to my courses for very reasonable prices and can excel in your practice or work. Hope I can contribute to this community what I learned throughout my journey.

Apart from above, I spend time in solving Excel Community questions raised at Microsoft Community

Simply said I spend 16 hours daily with Microsoft Office Excel.

That’s what I do daily. Simply love what I do and that’s make my work great in all aspects.
