Excel + Video Games for Kids

Highlighting Richard Nero and Coefficient

Richard Nero

Richard has the distinction of being one of the first in the data community on LinkedIn to reach out to me earlier this year when I started posting regular content.

He has a huge presence on LinkedIn and posts daily. His primary topics center around Excel, but don’t let that fool you-Richard has his hands in AI tooling, Finance & Planning, education and more.

And he’s also a consultant at Developex which builds custom automation, analysis and reporting solutions and systems for businesses.

He runs Good2Great Excel training, and is currently releasing Excel training for kids for use in schools. And it doesn’t stop there.

He is a director for a mentoring charity, supports a Maker Lab in Ghana, and runs both a social good concept and a startup Meetup.

Go follow Richard. Did I mention he’s a super nice guy on top of all that? 😀😀


The tagline says it all: “Automatically import your data into Google Sheets”.

I’ve been following Coefficient since 2022 mainly because I started my content creation journey by making a ton of Google Sheets tutorials.

They’re one of a handful of actually useful Sheets plugins, and they’re making a name for themselves with some big players like Spotify, Miro and Uber.

Not only do they integrate with some huge platforms like Salesforce, HubSpot, Quickbooks Online, Shopify, Airtable, Mailchimp, and a ton more…

But they also have loads of free Google Sheet dashboards and templates as well as a snazzy extension with built-in GPT tooling specifically for Sheets.

Video Games Sales

Kaggle is my go-to for finding neat datasets.

This video game sales dataset contains game name, platform, year, genre, NA_Sales, EU_Sales, JP_Sales, Other_Sales, Global_Sales as well as information about critic and user scores.

It’s got three files, but the main one is 16,720 rows of game data from 1980 to the mid 2010s.

Go check it out on and see what insights you can glean from it.

New Format

What do you think of the new format? I’ll be doing these bite-sized sections each newsletter going forward. The topics may change slightly, but I plan on keep it to three sections per issue.
