From someone who is considering doing this, I'd say this is all excellent advice. A few other tips would be to put in place a robust backup system: Off-site, regular backups of your photos, and equipment backups (or at least a plan to borrow or rent the equipment if it fails).

Be sure to always get a contract in place before shooting for a client.

And to re-emphasize point #2, a wize, experienced photographer teaching a workshop I recently attended said to never, ever go into debt buying new/more equipment. It's not worth it. It's also very easy to think you need to spend your latest revenue on the latest gear, when in reality you may instead be needing an emergency fund in case your equipment fails.
