I hired Carol a few years ago for one-on-one mentoring and she immediately helped me get thousands of dollars of results.

You can do it, too!



I’ve had a long-term goal to write for AARP Magazine, because they’re the largest-circulation pub in the country (and one of the best-paying). I discovered they have a new digital component, and they’ve asked me to contribute personal essays from my experience as a black woman. Looks like I have two assignments from AARP already, and the first is at $1 a word. Big shout-out to my Den accountability partner Ayelet, who encouraged me to keep up my LinkedIn contacts!

Our members explain…


I got my first assignment letter yesterday, from my first round of pitches in the Freelance Marketing Mastery bootcamp! I’m SUPER stoked, because it’s for a trade magazine for hospitals, which means really wonky, in-the-weeds topics for healthcare professionals. Oh—and it pays $700! The editor was very clear that’s a starter rate for an initial project, and it’ll be higher for future assignments. And this clip should help me get more clients like this one. Glad I took this Den bootcamp, which gave me the guts to go for it.

Health writer,


Big thanks to [pitch editor] Evan, who helped me fine-tune my LOI for Glassdoor (after being referred by a friend). I’d like to report my pitch was successful! The high visibility of Glassdoor…will provide me with a return in one way or another. It took more than 9 months total, but referrals are the way to go, even if they take a long time to gain traction.



I’m happy to say I’ve just landed my first ‘real’ client (i.e., not through an agency or referrals)—and it wouldn’t have happened without the Den bootcamp with Joshua Boswell. I found the contact through a Slack community in my niche. When I went to LinkedIn to connect with a member, I told her I noticed they have a lot of good stuff on their blog, and asked if they ever use outside writers. She said they were always looking! She liked my samples, but went silent after I quoted my fee. I sent a follow-up and gave a menu of prices for shorter posts up through white papers—and she offered me $500 of work. Amazing! I have a feeling this will turn into a regular gig (and I’m already thinking about upsells). This bootcamp has already more than paid for itself!

Food and tech writer,


My first three months as a freelancer, I made $400 a month. I just did my taxes, and I made well over $100,000 freelancing! Considering that last January and February I only made $1,500-2,000 a month, I’m pretty amazed — and I owe a LOT of it to what I learned from the Den!



I’ve been a member of the Den for a few years, starting when I was just contemplating going full time. From the forums, to the bootcamps, to the Thursday calls, there’s a wealth of information for whatever point you’re at in your freelance career. I’ve been able to quadruple my income!

Two options: month-to-month or a discounted annual plan (save $80 when you pay up front)

What is the difference between the monthly and annual plan?

Both plans include access to the FULL Den Membership. However, we offer month-to-month plans for $40 if you're not ready to commit to a full year of membership yet. If you ARE ready to join for the full year, you can save $80 with our flat-rate membership price of $400 for the entire year.
