My Dad is retired but could do with a bit of extra money, as can a lot of people living off tehir pensions these days. He has been asking me about the freelance writing work I do and whether he should do the same thing. He was on a very high salary before and so I think he will not be prepared to work for less than the minimum wage. There is also the case of getting started where he will have to work for even less, just to get himself known in the business and think about promotion. I remember getting confused by this and thinking about postcard printing, web adverts and things like that. I made a lot of mistakes as to what I paid for but didn't actually make any right decisions and so will find it hard to give advice.
