    I've been thinking about investing in myself and buying a Udemy course, what skill do you guys think would be the best for me to make some money on the side?

    Video editing? Coding? SEO?

    This. The internet is full of free information that people recycle into paid courses, PDFs and payment-gated websites, taking advantage of the incredibly lazy (aren't going to make any many anyways) or uninformed users of the internet.

    Find something that excites you and learn everything you can about it, while striving to be the best you can at it. Nothing will make you an overnight rockstar, so find something exciting and get started. Once you feel comfortable, offer some services for free to tackle real-world scenarios and common needs, and work your way up.

    You can make money from all of them but you are more likely to succeed in something you enjoy and are interested in

    udemy has its purpose but majority of stuff you can learn/attempt for free.
    sometimes it can serve as a nice shortcut depending on what you're trying to achieve.
    after all, one method is take free info from bhw and convert it into a udemy course. not to say that all udemy info is just rehashed stuff from free sources.
    as a noob i would suggest you study bhw threads (free) and take action on them. don't be that guy who buys dozens of courses and gets nowhere.
    but its your money. if you want to skip the hard work (reading threads) and have it handed to you on a platter, buy whatever you have an interest in. whether its seo, video editing, programming....everything will make you money.
