"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
"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
From its start in April 2015, we've beta-tested Den 2X with an initial set of writers looking to grow their income–fast. Though it was envisioned as a 1-year program, the results blew away our expectations, with many students doubling their income and more in 3-6 months!
Currently, Den 2X has two active mastermind groups. After you apply and I verify that you're a fit for this program, I’ll check in with you and place you into the most appropriate mastermind for your needs.
Maybe you’re earning $20,000 — but you really need to earn $40,000. Or you’ve managed to climb to $50,000 a year in writing income, but your goal is to hit six figures.
It’s like there’s a turnoff you missed somewhere, onto the highway to freelance success. If this is you, don’t worry — every top writer at one point was right where you are now. You can do this, if you commit to it.
Yes, there is a ton of opportunity out there — for those who have the right skills, and know where to look. But it’s going to take a lot of help and support to move you up. Work with me for as little as six months, though, and you could be earning a whole lot more.
...a small-group mastermind with 1-on-1 coaching and an exclusive Road Map program. Den 2X guides and supports you through a series of simple steps designed to double your income in 6 months-1 year.
This program offers simple steps and extensive personalized feedback -- far beyond the forum access I offer to my basic Freelance Writers Den members.
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.
In nearly a decade mentoring hundreds of writers, I’ve learned that 1-on-1 often isn't effective — not by itself, anyway. Some gurus charge thousands for just a few hours with them, and yet many students still don’t see much in the way of results. I hate that!
With 1-on-1, your mentor is at a different stage in their career than you are, so you can’t relate. Their earnings seem unachievable. And it’s lonely, trying to ramp your business all by yourself.
That’s why Den 2X Income Accelerator offers a combination of small and bigger-group support, advanced training, and 1-on-1 coaching time. This is our proven Den 2X formula for skyrocketing your writing income.
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 5-year track record I’ve built coaching other writers on how to earn more.
I’ve been a freelance writer for over 15 years, and have earned my living from writing full-time since 1995. I cracked six figures in 2011. My freelance clients have included Costco, American Express, Lending Tree, Alaska Airlines Magazine, Forbes, Entrepreneur, Nation’s Restaurant News, Seattle Magazine, and many more.
The Den 2X is not for everyone. This is a mastermind for focused, motivated freelance writers who are ready to do what it takes to earn more.
If you are frozen in fear or unwilling to do any marketing, Den 2X can't help you. This is an active program, where you’ll build a concrete plan for growing your income, and then execute on it.
I require that you invest a minimum of six months of your time and energy in working our program, because that's what we've seen gets proven results.
You should have at least a full year of freelance writing experience, and have earned at least $15,000 from freelance writing in the previous calendar year OR most recent 12 months, to participate.
Why do we exclude brand-new freelance writers from Den 2X? The coursework and topics we’ll be discussing here won’t be relevant or helpful for you, if you’re just starting out. You need some client experience and writing income coming in. To get started in freelance writing, join Freelance Writers Den as a basic member -- our archive of 200+ hours of trainings will get you started.
