Each year at this time, Udemy, the website that hosts my online writing and travel skills courses, offers thousands of online courses at ridiculous discounts.

Designed for busy people, you can take these online writing workshops whenever and wherever you have time. Once you sign up, you have lifetime enrollment.

They keep their specific Black Friday offers a secret until the event begins, but for the last few years, they’ve kicked off their sale the week before the Thanksgiving holiday in the United States – offering most of the courses on their site for $10. My six online courses have list prices of between 30 and 85 dollars each, so this once-a-year sale offers a huge savings.

Once the sale begins, they then increase the $10 price tag by a couple of bucks every other day until Black Friday – the day after Thanksgiving – which falls on November 24 this year.

Rumors on the Udemy instructor message boards are that this year’s Black Friday sale will begin this coming Thursday, November 16, but I’m starting my own sale today! 

From now through next Saturday, November 18, you can get each of my online courses for just 10 dollars – or invite a friend and pay $16 for two enrollments. That’s $8 per person … and these courses make for fun and unique holiday gifts!

If you’ve been thinking of signing up for any of my courses, this is the absolute cheapest I’ll sell them in the next 12 months. Join today before the prices increase in a few days.

The links below will take you to detailed descriptions and free sample lessons for each course. All courses come with a 30-day money back guarantee.


Choose from the Following Writing and Travel Skills Courses

All you need is an Internet connection and you can take these courses anywhere. Watch the videos on your computer or download the Udemy phone app.

Prices below are valid through Saturday, November 18, 2017. Once Udemy begins increasing its sale prices, the discount prices on this page will go up as well – but they’ll still be a couple of bucks cheaper than what you’ll pay on Udemy, so if you forget to jump in right away, you can still check back here for bigger discounts than Udemy is offering.

If you choose the “bring a friend” option, you’ll receive a coupon within seven days for your second enrollment.

For each course you join in November, 2017, you’ll be entered in a drawing to win a free hour of writing and/or life coaching. You get one entry for each course you sign up for!

To sweeten the deal further, for each course you purchase, you’ll be entered in a drawing to win a free one-hour writer coaching session.

(I have also recently become a certified life coach. If you prefer, you can use your hour to discuss issues such as goal achievement, stress management, and culture shock / travel-related concerns.)

If you win, you can do your coaching session via Skype, FaceTime, phone, or e-mail … or in person if we happen to be in the same place at the same time. (I live in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and will be visiting Seattle and Denver in December and January.)

The winner will be announced after Udemy’s Black Friday Sale has ended. (Void where prohibited.)

And hey … if you’re interested in writing or life coaching with me, stay tuned for another special offer on the official Black Friday.

If you have questions about any of this, feel free to e-mail me.

Otherwise, sign up now before the prices go up in a few days.

(And remember, these courses make for fun and unique holiday gifts! While you must sign up before the sale ends to get these prices, the enrollments never expire so you can give them as gifts whenever you like!)
