I'm new to this blog having discovered it just yesterday.
I have been doing business writing for years, but I've never gotten paid for it. I did it as a hobby just for family and friends. It never occured to me that it can be anything more than just a hobby since I was working at the time. Now, my family is encouraging me to go for it, to do freelance business writing as a side job. I'm hesitant for several reasons.
1) Even though I'm technically not a newbie, I have no idea how to start attracting clients. I don't do that in my current line of work. It sounds very intimidating.
2) How much do I charge? Yes, I'm experienced but since I'm a new name out there, I'm not sure what rates would be fair to me and to clients. I've heard so many different opinions, I don't know where to start.
I would appreciate any help and/advice.
Thank you all.
