Such as: what to include in your portfolio, how much to charge, how to get paid, how to deal with difficult clients, and how much money you can make on average (starting out).

How Much Should I Charge?
Figure out how much you need to make per day, to pay your bills and have a surplus for monthly expenses.
Check the going rates, from Designer Unions or what other artists charge (Google or ask on forums).
Figure what you would like to charge per hour and estimate how many hours a client's task will take you.
What To Put In My Portfolio:
Look at other profiles that have similar skills
Focus on your strengths
Only your best work, even if they are few
A lot of artists and designers but few are professional and reliable
Offer something unique and always deliver a great service and you will survive.
ABC (Always Be Closing)
Ask: “Is there anything else, to complete your project?”
Offensive Expectations = Politely ignore and move on
Escrow and deposits are life savers, in case client disappears or so you their commitment
Cheap clients are the most difficult and demanding
