Hello everyone, I hope this blog gets you healthy and safe at your homes. Let’s talk about how to make money online through Udemy. Suppose you’re not living under a rock for the entire 2020. In that case, there’s a big chance that you heard about a pandemic going around; it’s a disease called the COVID-19.
It has already infected around 60 thousand cases in Malaysia and 60 Million worldwide. Based on the rates of those cases, I don’t think it will stop soon. Because of this pandemic, the government has issued a lockdown since march, so I think that you all are staying home or wearing a mask outside. IF you follow the law. But if most of us are staying home, there is nobody around to buy stuff, and businesses will collapse due to the lack of customers.
Currently, there is an alarming number of companies that are facing bankruptcy or already are. This economic downfall has forced many companies to lay off their employees and causing many people to lose their job despite the tough times. Some of them live off paycheck to paycheck even before the lockdown, and in a situation like this, it must be very hard on them. But don’t worry, there is something that helps you guys to learn how to make money through an online platform.
