Being on Udemy, either as a student or as an instructor, is an amazing experience. Many people think of becoming Udemy instructors, yet very few do. Why is that? I believe that limiting beliefs play an important role and many potential instructors fall in the trap of disqualifying themselves from becoming a part of Udemy. I truly believe the platform's potential is immense and that's one of the things I aim to convince you about in this Udemy Fusion course.
I'm Dragos Stefanescu - a Top Udemy Instructor with 10 successful courses, 10,000 students and 360+ Five Star Reviews - and I'm looking forward to teaching you this course.
Most people live their lives after a common scenario: they finish University when they're in their 20s, get a job, work until they're 65 and retire afterwards. Opportunities for travel are limited those holidays you get every year and most people earn enough to live a good life, but never enough to enjoy life.
I truly believe that money is not the end game, no. It's the lifestyle, how you choose to live life on your own terms. And one of the easiest ways to make money online and build a passive income stream is by creating a course on Udemy.
If you're reading this, chances are you've been thinking of creating a Udemy course. What's stopped you so far?
"But I'm not an expert ?! How can I create a course?"
You don't have to be. This is one of the common misconceptions - call it a limiting belief. It's not about how much you know about a certain topic, it's about mastering it and knowing how to create high quality content that delivers results for your students. That's the key.
And that's exactly what I teach you in this course.
"There's too much competition there, how will I make money?"
That's something I was afraid of as well before launching my first course. Trust me - competition on Udemy is the best thing you can have. Embrace the challenge!
"Maybe my course won't be successful, how can I know if I will make money?"
You can never know. I can't tell you I'll give you a magic formula to know how much you can make on Udemy. What I can give you is a set of elements to analyse that will tell you exactly if there is a market for your topic. If you create high quality content and market your course properly, you will see results come in very quickly.
At the beginning of 2015 I was stuck in the corporate rat race in a musky London office thinking about how the next 20 years of my life would disappear while I stared at a computer screen for 10 hours a day.
I decided NO MORE and handed in my resignation. Fast forward 7 months and instead I'm standing in front of camera, with over 9,000 Udemy students, 9 Udemy programs & over 200+ 5-star reviews.
There's nothing special about my story. With hard work & passion you can do the same thing

I'm an Internet Entrepreneur with a background in both the Management Consulting & Telecommunications industries. The skills that I have acquired during those stints and in previous years in general have unleashed my passion to teach.
I have a wide array of skills that I share with you via my courses
(1) Social Media
One of my true passions, I have invested a lot of time building a presence online. Highlights include:
With 30+ Job applications, I have gained a deep understanding of the recruiting process
How I got here…
Until recently I never really envisioned myself starting my own business. In fact, it was quite the opposite - my dream was to work for a large Multinational/ Consulting company and enjoy the riches of the Corporate life…
I soon found myself in what I thought would be my "dream job" only to do work that wasn't at all fulfilling, spending hours every day commuting and paying enormous rent (almost half of my salary) in one of the largest cities in the world. I felt stuck, limited and didn't think much of my future prospects.
I look back now and find it funny how at our lowest points we make life-changing decisions. Since a few members of our Mastermind Group had launched online businesses, I decided I would give it a try. I made up my mind that whatever happened, I absolutely HAD to launch an online product before my birthday.
Within two months, I launched my first Udemy course.
One month later I decided to quit my job (to the utter amazement of my colleagues, managers, friends & family - they probably thought I was crazy) and never looked back since.
What I aim for is simple: I want to get you real results in the fastest possible time. Whether it's improving your presence on Social Media, getting your dream job, improving your productivity or self-development, I want you to walk away from my courses with a sense of achievement.
The courses I create are structured in a step-by-step manner so that you can implement them straight away. They do require your effort & commitment, but if you do that I'm extremely confident you can get to the next level.
Ultimately, receiving a message from a satisfied student detailing how I've helped him or her is immensely gratifying, more so than any number of sales.
Get in touch!
If you're one of my students and you want to ask me a question, or you're just reading this now and think we might have something in common then post a discussion item on one of my courses - I'll be more than happy to answer & get to know you better!
