I think Ian makes a lot of sense with his queries. He did not mention
issues such as non-disclosure of confidental data, business methods,
etc. as well as insurance, liability and other factors that are at the
core of business relatiohships/contracts. He is right that you cannot
rightly do "work" for someone else's business "for free" without both
parties potentially having troubles later.
Others have suggested you hone your skills by responding to queries on
SAS-:L, and I think that makes a lot of sense . There are also "L"
groups fro statistcs, SPSS, etc. that you may want to query, too.
