Overwhelming No More
Google Sheets is a powerful tool for data analysis, but it can be overwhelming for beginners. However, with the right formulas and functions, you can easily transform raw data into meaningful insights. Here are some of the key benefits of using formulas and functions to do your data analysis in Google Sheets:

Save time: By using formulas and functions, you can perform complex calculations and manipulations on large datasets in just a few clicks.

Accuracy: Manual data manipulation can lead to errors, but formulas and functions eliminate the risk of mistakes and ensure accuracy.

Visualization: By using formulas and functions to analyze your data, you can turn it into charts and graphs that make it easier to interpret and communicate your findings.

Check for Errors
While we might think some of us are superhuman, we are really all human. Errors happen. But when errors happen we don't want to fall apart. We want to make sure of the veracity of our data, and we want to make sure that errors don't stop us.

Understanding errors and handling errors in our data analysis makes our day to day jobs so much easier. You'll be flying through, under, and over errors while your coworkers are copy/pasting/retyping their errors into Google and asking ChatGPT "what does this mean?"

Better Sheets members are able to run circles around ChatGPT'ers.

Forget About Frustrations
Upskilling yourself in statistics and data analysis, along with being able to handle formulas and errors, will lead to much less frustration inside the sheets.

You might even bring about WORLD PEACE!
