You may have never thought about will writing as a career, but there is an ever growing demand for will writing professionals in the Malaysia. As with any writing career, you of course need to be able to form proper sentences and write well. According to Rockwills MD Saw Leong Aun "Top performers can earn up to RM100,000 a year while an average performer can earn about RM5,000 a month, depending on their commitment and effort. Some of the full-timers produce 20 to 30 wills a month while part-timers rake in about five to six wills per month," he said, adding that a will can cost RM300 to RM12,000, depending on the number of clauses.
