Dear [Recipients Name],
I was very flattered that you decided to ask for my opinion about your future career path. You have obviously given a lot of thought to the matter and would first advise that it is important to look into all of the advantages and disadvantages of any decision.
You know what your ultimate goal is, to run your own software design business, which is a good place to start. So now it is important to get the skills needed to make a business successful. You will have to acquire expertise or business marketing and finance skills. So far it appears that that you are learning both areas, I would suggest a more directive form of learning to concentrate on technical skills or business skills. If either area is particularly appealing to you, then this would probably be the way to go. Please let me know if this advice has been of any help.

Further things to consider when writing advice letters to family
Advice letters are letters meant to give recommendations or guidance concerning prudent future action. Typically, these letters are written by a person who is regarded as knowledgeable or authoritative. Advice letters can be from a company to clients, managers to subordinates, or employee to employee. People write advice letters to help others make informed decisions and avoid bad actions. Some of the situations where you may want to offer advice through a letter include giving guidance on how to choose a career, advising clients on the best products, or advising a friend on how to deal with an issue. You may also send a letter to a subordinate to advice about certain behavior at work, etc.
When writing advice letters, there are a few things you should keep in mind. First things first, state the reason for this letter and maintain a formal and truthful tone. Communicate the advice being asked of you clearly and precisely, making sure that there is nothing that the reader can hold against you. State why you think it is important that the reader follows your suggestion. Where necessary, quote references you have consulted. Before closing the letter, you can ask for a reply.
Letters to Family
Letters to family are letters written to people who are related to each other by blood, marriage, or adoption, who commit to the mutual relationship. In most cases, these letters are sent by people who are away from their families. The purpose of writing to family members is mostly to let them know that you care about them and that they are on your mind. Apart from greetings letters to say hello to your family, you could send a congratulation letter to your daughter for graduating to the next class, an apology letter for missing your son's birthday or a thank-you letter for a gift from your wife.
Letters to family are usually casual. Therefore, the tone should be warm, sweet, and friendly. Depending on the reason for your writing, you can address a family letter to a specific person or the entire family. Open the letter with warm greetings. Deliver your message clearly. Where necessary, mention important news or events. Write in a conversational manner that makes the recipient feel as if you are actually talking to him/her. Close with a statement of reassurance of your love for the recipient and/or a request to write back.
