Thank you for bringing this up Lawrence. I'm able to maintain my income too. I don't get much through Udemy, but I have multiple income streams, all online. Some clients have been very keen to work with me even in this strange period. And some things are going quite well for me professionally. I have had so many ups and downs in my life as an online business owner. Moments where I wanted to quit. Moments where I took a step back. Moments where things started working. And then stopped. And then started again. So, I'm glad things are going quite well, in spite of everything. At the same time, I do feel bad about that. It can be hard to process all these feelings. But I'm glad that I can be useful - people are clearly searching for things to learn online during this time, if my March enrolments are anything to go by. So it makes me feel like I'm doing something to help, even though I'm stuck at home!

I can totally relate to these feelings of guilt. My work was 100% online, not only on Udemy. So I haven't had to adapt to quite so many things as others have. My free course has done extremely well in March, getting over 9000 enrolments in one day. I'm now at over 21,000 students. I'm grateful that I can be useful to them and support them in this way without having to be present for each and every one of them. Then again, this is what I have been working for since 2016 when I started teaching online.
