Hi and welcome Nakiea,
My piece of advice is just to do it and stick with it. Make high-quality courses but spend less time contemplating doing it and more time creating it! You will find lots of encouragement, honest feedback and help in creating your course, so poke around. There are also some Udemy courses on making Udemy courses I found invaluable.
Good Luck and ask away!
Good advice from @AliciaPaz, but I'd even recommend making bad courses to get started. If you stop to think about it, there are so many reasons for you not to do this. There's too much you need to know, you're not an expert in your subject matter. You name it. The truth is that it's all hoowey!
When I started on Udemy almost 5 years ago I grabbed a headset microphone out of a copy of Rosetta Stone Spanish I had lying around, got a 30-day trial of Camtasia Studio 2018 and I was off. Three months later, Tech Smith had accidentally extended my trial period, I'd purchased a better Logitech headset and I had 10 Udemy courses published. From there on there was no looking back.
You need to decide whether you're going to commit yourself to doing this or not. If you're ready, you need to learn some stuff, but not much and much of it is on this forum or pointed to from this forum.
Once committed to this path, put your head down and bulldoze ahead. Periodically poke you're head up to make sure you're still going in the right direction, but the rest of the time you should be recording lectures. Do not listen to all the nay-saying, especially coming from yourself. You've made your decision, so do it.
"A Udemy instructor who is not recording is not a Udemy instructor."
I know, not brilliant but also not bad on the fly. I hope you get my point.
Hope this helps,
