Hi! Thanks for dropping by.I create these courses because I am a business owner and I want the most value from the software I pay for.I pay for a lot of software. It pains me to see users who don't get trained and end up designing these processes and workflows that are crap, they also don't use a virtual advisor to help them use Xero for setting and smashing business goals.I see too much waste and it sucks.I worked at Xero for 3 years and helped ensure users all around the world got their value for money.Xero is pretty awesome software, if you understand how it works best. I use Xero to run our 2 family businesses.This gives me more time at home, where my wife Karene, and two sons Blake and Mitchell can spend more time with me and tell me how crap I am at singing and how to build Minecraft worlds.Donnie Buchanan
