The Best Udemy Courses for Entrepreneurs, Freelancers and Solopreneurs
One of the easiest, fastest and safest ways to learn new things is to have some of the best of the best out there teach you how they’ve done it. At least for me.
And I’ve had dozens of amazing mentors in my life. And I did not meet any of them in real life. Nor do they even know that I exist. I had virtual mentors. Online.
And I really wish I would have had these virtual mentors a lot earlier in my life. Because it would have saved me tons of time, money, sorrow and a hell lot of stress.
And thanks to platforms like Udemy.com, a worldwide marketplace full of online courses we can now learn from the best of the best out there. From the comfort of our living rooms. Without having to attend super boring conferences with ridiculously overpriced tickets where we might maybe get 2 minutes of people's time.
I guess you know what I’m talking about, right?
And today I want to share some of the top courses on Udemy for entrepreneurs, freelancers, and solopreneurs with you.
These courses are from the best of the best out there. The best rated, most attended and most popular courses on Udemy you’ll ever find.
They are from entrepreneurship and marketing legends such as Gary Vaynerchuk, Seth Godin, Guy Kawasaki and a few more folks who have proven it over and over again that they know what they are doing.
If you’ve ever heard just those three names you know that they stand for high quality. They ALWAYS over deliver. I’ve also taken some of these courses myself in the past and have to admit, they are worth every single cent! And a hell lot more.
I’m sure you’ll find something on this list that you’ve been meaning to learn to take your business to new heights. Happy learning!

#MARKETING & PERSONAL BRANDING
I have no clue how I could have missed this. I feel like living on the moon after having discovered this. Legendary Gary Vaynerchuk put out a course on Udemy on how to build your personal brand online. I was thinking about creating such a course for a long time, but now that Gary put out this course I don't have to anymore. It has more than 15,000 participants and more than 1400 reviews already. Check out the free preview lessons. I particularly liked #22. Learn more and get access here. I just got my subscription...

Seth Godin is the man. If you've been online for a while you know him. For sure. He's probably the most influential blogger and marketer of this (and the past) century. He knows what he's talking about. Having written more than 18 book, having worked for almost everybody out there, having built and sold a few companies and writing a wildly popular blog, Seth is the man. This is by far the best course on freelancing on Udemy.

Sticker Price: $45
Social Proof: 700+ reviews 13,500+ students
Sample Review: "This course is Seth Godin at his finest. He makes you look into a mirror and ask yourself the hard questions. In an interview with Brian Gardner of Copyblogger fame, I heard him say that a majority of people that take this course don't listen to more than an hour of it. That makes a lot of sense. If you just want to hear some relevant marketing ideas, and not take action, don't waste your time buying this course. If you're ready to shed your old skin and up your freelancing game to your highest level by taking ACTION, then you need to hit play immediately."

Guy effectively delivers the material in an authentic and plain-spoken manner - as though he was personally advising a trusted friend.

What you'll learn:

Sample Review: "I have never seen advice that so clearly teaches how to write concisely and precisely. Shani is a master of slimming down flabby prose and getting to the point. I wish I had seen this course 20 years ago, it would have saved me a small fortune on books about writing, and I have learned more from this course than years of reading books on how to sharpen my writing. This course is a great value investment in both time and money. I simply cannot wait until his next course it out."
