A lot of freelance writers have a poverty mentality. I hear a lot of, “I’m just hoping to make a fraction of what I made at my day job. I need to earn enough from my writing income to survive.”
That’s one mindset of some freelance writers. But there’s another way to approach your freelance business.
If you take the attitude that your freelance writing income is unlimited, you can see your income explode.
That’s what happened to Canadian freelance writer Sylvie Tremblay, who recently graduated from my Den 2X Income Accelerator. After a year in the program, which starts with making a mindset shift to believe in yourself, she tripled her writing income, going from subsistence, paycheck-to-paycheck living to having money in the bank, traveling, and feeling financially secure.
Among the highlights of Sylvie’s story that you’ll see in the video:

Inspiration to grow your writing income
It’s exciting for me to see a writer I coach grow their freelance business and their writing income a ton. Sylvie was in the same situation as a lot of freelance writers a year ago. Making a mindset shift and thinking strategically about her freelance business changed everything. Her confidence grew, along with her income and portfolio of well-paying clients. If you want to move up and earn more, double or even triple your freelance income, you can. I hope this provides inspiration for writers who feel stuck in a low-pay trap and reminds you to believe in yourself!
