Is your freelance career stuck in low gear?

Maybe you’re a fairly new freelance writer earning $20,000 — but really need to earn $40,000. Or you’re an experienced writer still struggling to attain the $80,000 or $100,000+ yearly income you know you deserve. 

It’s like there’s a turnoff you missed somewhere, on the highway to freelance success. If this is you, don’t worry — every top-earning writer once was right where you are now.  

Yes, there is a ton of opportunity out there — for those who know where to look. But it takes a lot of support to move you up. Work with me for just six months, and we'll follow a proven, step-by-step program to double your income (or more!)

I’ve gone from earning $1,200 a month to billing $5,000 a month!

"In my first 6 months in Den 2X, I gained the confidence to get rid of low-paying clients. Using the program, I was able to be proactive and find better-paying clients — I wasn’t just sitting and waiting. Working the Road Map’s “low hanging-fruit” section, I contacted a company I worked for in the past, and now I’m working steadily for them. I also up-sold another client a white paper. I’ve gone from earning $1,200 a month to billing $5,000 a month the past three months!” —Jennifer Koebele


I just closed February’s accounts, and I grossed a shade under $7,200.

"Last Thursday, I just closed February’s accounts, and I grossed a shade under $7,200. I smashed my previous record, back in September, by $1,000.” —Charles

Doubled My Income Within the First Year

 “I doubled my income within the first year of completing 2X and I’ve only been increasing my income since then. Also, I cannot emphasize just how valuable it is to be part of the graduate Slack group. This is a daily resource for having somewhere to vent, share success stories, find resources, ask for advice on pricing, and more. Den 2X is the best thing you can do with your money if you’re a freelance writer.” —Chanoa Tarle 

Reserve your seat and get coaching time

You might wonder what happens after you apply. Happy to fill you in!

If your application is approved, you'll see an offer to reserve a guaranteed seat for $100 (counts toward your 2X program fee). That reservation entitles you to a 1:1 flash coaching session with Carol or Angie in early January.

This flash coaching event is worth WAY more than $100, so even if you decide not to join us for 2X, you'll get a terrific value, coming away with actionable tips you can use right away to grow your income.

Applying, reserving a seat, and participating in the coaching session does not obligate you to join us for Den 2X. You can make that decision after your 1:1 and group events. So if you know you need coaching help, encourage you to apply and grab your 1:1 flash session!

Why do most writers earn peanuts?

Writers are good at...writing, naturally! But there’s often a big knowledge gap when it comes to building a profitable writing business. Den 2X fills in the blanks, guiding you to analyze where you’re at now — and helping you formulate a concrete, actionable plan to move up.

A road-tested program...

With 4+ years of experience running Den 2X, this program is now a highly focused, 6-month intensive. Each month, you'll move on to a new part of the Road Map and overcome more obstacles to achieving your income goals. At the end of 6 months, you'll retain lifetime access to the Den 2X materials and join our ongoing Grads group for support and MORE coaching with Carol!

Carol Tice

Hi — I’m Carol Tice, a six-figure freelance writer and author of the award-winning Make a Living Writing blog. I’m proud of the 7-year track record I’ve built coaching other writers on how to earn more.  

I’ve been a freelance writer myself for nearly 20 years (still working!), and have earned a full-time living from writing since 1995. I cracked six figures in 2011. My freelance clients have included Deloitte, Costco, American Express, Delta Sky, Alaska Beyond, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Seattle Magazine, and many more.

Hello! I’m Angie, the Moderator-in-Chief for the Freelance Writers Den and a freelancer for the past decade. I worked my way up from content mills, starting out in the bad old days of Demand Studios (when they still called it that). 

After graduating Den 2X myself, I now make a comfortable living writing case studies and white papers for clients who don’t make me want to pull my hair out. I also work alongside Carol to help writers find their way to bigger, better clients.

Earned Over 2X — In Just Six Months!

"Den 2X made me get serious about accounting — I analyzed what I actually earned last year, and started tracking what I’m earning now. With help from the program, I put together a marketing plan and set goals. Then, it was just a matter of targeting and reaching out to prospects — including one who said, “I’ve never been asked! I could really use help with our visitors’ guide and our blog.” The pay has been great! I’ve more than doubled my monthly billings.” —Teresa Bitler

On My Way to 2Xing My Income

"I was earning $2,500 per month consistently before I joined Den 2X, knowing this would be my step up. The tailored program helped me separate the wheat from the chaff of online advice you see all over the Internet... I was able to look at my client analysis and devise a marketing plan for myself. Now, the website I developed as part of Den2X brings me at least 7 leads a week. Plus 5 leads a week off my LinkedIn profile, which Den2X helped me improve. I recently secured two $1,100 per month clients off LinkedIn and am on my way to 2xing my income by the end of the program. Plus, Den2X has given me a beautiful mindset and some great pals. I am so excited about the fact that I can consistently use the training to 2X my income EVERY YEAR. Thank you Carol for making me believe it was possible to achieve financial freedom while having freedom of lifestyle.” —Divya Agrawal

Den 2X Success Story: Sylvie Tremblay

Learn how Sylvie multiplied her income as a Den 2X student!

Why 1-on-1 coaching alone doesn't work

In nearly a decade mentoring writers, I’ve learned 1-on-1 coaching often isn't effective by itself. Gurus charge thousands for just a few hours' time, and many students don’t see big results. I hate that!  

With 1-on-1 only, your mentor is at a different career stage than you are. Their earnings seem unachievable. And it’s lonely, trying to ramp your business all by yourself.  

That’s why Den 2X Income Accelerator combines small-group support with advanced training and 1-on-1 coaching time. 

This is my proven Den 2X formula for skyrocketing your writing income. AND, instead of paying $10,000-$15,000 like most masterminds require (up front!), this program is about one-tenth of that cost — an insane value, considering how much more you'll earn in the years to come, thanks to your 2X support and training. 

FYI, the price of this coaching program increases over time — so if you need this, recommend applying now!

Is Den 2X right for you?

Den 2X income accelerator is a mastermind for motivated, working freelance writers who're ready to do what it takes to earn more.

If you're frozen in fear, Den 2X can't help you. This is an active program, where you'll build and execute on a concrete growth plan.  

You should have at least one full year of freelance experience, and have earned at least $20,000 from freelance writing in the previous calendar year OR be projecting $20K of income for this year, based on your most recent quarter.

Why do we exclude brand-new freelance writers from Den 2X? The coursework we’ll follow here won’t be relevant or helpful if you’re just starting out. I recommend newbies join Freelance Writers Den as a basic member — our archive full of get-started trainings will get you launched.

Got clients, but earning under $20K? Join our new "FOLLOW ALONG" level

So here's the story: I used to run a 3-month program for newbie freelancers. But it wasn't as reliably effective as Den 2X Income Accelerator. So in 2019, we tried something new: a 'follow along' level in Den 2X, where writers earning $5,000-$19,000 could participate along with higher earners.

Did it work better to give under-earners 6 full months of training and support, in my proven income-doubling program? It definitely did! We saw 3X-4X success stories and more.

So if you're in this category... APPLY FOR DEN 2X. What's different for follow-along students? The price tag is more affordable — just $697, half the price of our full-participation students. 

And follow-along students get EVERYTHING IN DEN 2X except the live 1:1 coaching. Instead, you'll get some individualized 1:1 help on Slack chat with Angie. Enjoy all the proven Road Map materials, live group masterminds, 24/7 Slack chat, and 6 months of Den 2X Grads, all included.

Follow Along = $697

Ready to double your income?

Imagine the lifestyle you'd lead if you earned twice as much money as you do right now. No, really — take a minute, close your eyes, and envision it. Starting each day on your own schedule, knowing you have client work booked that pays all your bills and more. Would you move, travel, give to causes you love? 

If you're tired of struggling alone, and need to make this happen in the coming year, Den 2X is here for you.
