Thanks, @Bella for the topic.
The Biggest risk I've taken is to resign from my full-time teaching job in an Organisation, to launch a course on Udemy.
But I'm happy to share, I made my first $1000 in less than 20 days. Working on another course, and will launch it in the next 10 days.
Would love to hear others story 😄
Hi @Bella ,
The beautiful aspect of Udemy is that you can create a course WITHOUT any risks. I didn't take any risks at all, and really enjoyed the process. 🙂
Of course, I can imagine two major categories of risks - either quitting a full-time job (like Mohit did), or hiring a team too early, without being quite sure that the whole thing is profitable.
But other than that - when you do it as a weekend pet project, without hiring anyone to help you, then you have everything to gain and nothing to loose.
Even if you spend your time and don't get the expected result - actually creating a course gives you an additional set of skills - video-editing, audio-recording, etc. - that you can use later in other projects. So it's a win anyway!
With kind regards,
