Udemy is one of the most wonderful places to learn new skills online.

With over 175,000 courses taught by over 60,000 different instructions, you’re now able to learn almost anything from the comfort of your home.

Combine that with the fact that Udemy also runs frequent sales, and it’s no wonder they’ve amassed so many students.

But how valuable are these courses (and the certification that comes with them) for getting a job? Do employers care that you’ve taken Udemy courses, and should you put them down on your resume?

As someone who has taught thousands of students on Udemy, I’ve learned a lot about how people use the platform. In this article, we’ll cover everything you need to know about Udemy certificates, and how they can be used to help you get a job.

I spent 8 months living in an office and completely destroying my body, to learn an incredibly important lesson:

Your health has a far more important effect on how much money you’ll make, or how successful you’ll become than most people probably realize, or are ever willing to admit to themselves.

And to make matters worse, most people usually do not realize that they have a problem until it’s too late.

This isn’t something a lot of people really talk about, so in this article I’d like to highlight more about its importance, the hidden effects poor habits take on your productivity, and practical steps to start turning your life around.

Regardless of where you’re at in your entrepreneurial journey, it’s likely that you could be getting a lot more out of what you already have.

Two people, with the same exact resources – time, money, knowledge, etc can take the same exact business, yet experience drastically different results.

Sadly, the majority of us make progress a lot slower than we could be – even if our time or budgets are limited.

Why is that?

Most frequently, it comes down to mindset.

The average person experiences thousands of thoughts every hour. What we allow ourselves to think and believe has a lot more of an effective than we realize. Positivity, optimism and self-belief will not magically make you successful, but there are real self-limiting beliefs that affect business owners, and have direct, measurable negative consequences.

In this article, I’m going to address some of these limiting beliefs with you – and show you how reframing some of your thoughts can yield tangible improvements for your company. Funny enough, these are all thoughts I’ve had myself at some point!

Networking is one of the fastest ways to grow your business and further your position in life.

The benefits are numerous, and often manifest themselves in unexpected ways. At the same time, you’ll likely meet wonderful people that will become lifelong friends.

Yet unsurprisingly, few people are proactive about building their network.

One of the most common excuses I hear working with entrepreneurs is that they’re introverted. It may be shyness, social anxiety, or just not feeling comfortable approaching new people that may hamper their ability to network. I understand it, because I was very introverted for much of my life as well.

I’m not going to tell you to try and change who you are.

However, networking as an introvert is certainly possible, and in this article, I’m going to share my best possible tips.

Let’s get into it!

Have you ever heard the phrase, ‘work smart, not hard’?

Wonder what genius came up with that one?

The idea that there is some ‘secret strategy’ guaranteed to make you riches without any real effort is ridiculous. Just as ridiculous as the idea that if you just work hard enough (even if you’re doing the wrong thing) you’ll inevitably find success as well.

Therefore, ask yourself – should you work smart or hard?

The answer, put simply, is both. Not only do you need to have the right strategy in place, but you have to back it up with enough effort and hours to execute that strategy to its full potential.

However, there’s different times to focus on working smart vs. working hard. In this article, I intend to highlight some of these examples. This way, you can structure your work days in a way that truly maximizes your results.
