Level Up Series: Advanced DAX

Foundations taught us how to remove repetitive, manual work and make impactful insights. Advanced DAX is about making it rain money by better informing decisions!


  • Taught completely in Power BI Desktop
  • If Foundations is a 101 course, hands-on work experience with DAX is 201, and Advanced DAX is 301.
  • This class will teach you how DAX really works, how to build complex reports that are still digestible, and how to use that information to drive your business.

Level Up Series: Power Query for Excel & Power BI

Copy-paste? Dragging formulas down? SAME THING EVERY WEEK?… No more. Teach your computer how to build your reports for you. Set and forget!


  • This class will teach you how to connect to all of your data (no matter where it lives), shape it so DAX can run automagically, and have your computer remember the steps so you never have to do it again.
  • You don’t need to be an IT professional – most of our students come from an Excel background
  • Taught simultaneously in Excel and Power BI

Talk About Your Personal Journey OR Share a Technique – Either Way, it’s Time YOUR Voice is Heard Smile

Are you ready to see your name in lights?

Hi folks!  I know, I know…  long time, no write.  I’ve been busy, ahem, ramping things up behind the scenes here at P3 HQ.  More on that in a couple weeks, at which point I’ll be more “around” than I have been recently.

I’m posting today because there are a lot of you out there who’ve yet to discover how compelling you are.  “Undiscovered and compelling” is a fun pairing!  And remember, I myself started this site in 2009, having NO idea whether I’d be any good at this gig.

So ask yourself two questions:

  1. Would it be fun and/or exciting to be published on this site?
  2. Are you nervous that you won’t be any good at it?

Well, if you answered “Yes” to both, you’re in PRECISELY the same spot I was in 2009.

In other words, you are overqualified Smile

“But What Would I Write About?”

That’s the easy part!  How about telling the story of your own personal journey in Power BI Land?  Or share a nifty little trick you’ve discovered/invented?  For a change of pace, why not tell us about a compelling personal usage of the Power tools?  Or a hybrid of story and technique, like Gordon shared last week?  Or maybe you have a rant that’s been bottled up for a long time…  we like all of those.  AND we’re open to other ideas too!

“But How Would I Make it GOOD?”

First off, don’t underestimate yourself.  See above – everyone starts somewhere, including me.

Second, we’re going to help you! There are 2-3 fine individuals on this end just lining up to be your coaches and guides in this process.  We won’t leave you hanging – on the contrary, we’ll hold your hand the whole way.

Drop us a note, let’s get started!

It’s time to start developing and refining a new talent/skill – one that will benefit you in many ways (pride and bragging rights being just part of the equation).  It won’t hurt your next job search either Smile

  1. Hey Rob! 🙂

    The ‘Contact Our Blog Team’ link doesn’t seem to be working. I can click it but it’s not going anywhere.

    1. Miguel, maybe you’re using a technique that’s been covered, but in a different way than was showcased in the original post.
