Probably the biggest bottleneck for artists in business is pricing. There are some very good reasons for this - (1) art falls in the category of want and not need (2) value is perceived and not hard and (3) it's a small market with incredible competition. It would behoove - (there's a pricey word. Rare. When was the last time you saw it used?) - behoove the artist to do a little reading about how to think about money. I recommend Dollars and Sense.

Dan Areily does a nice job explaining how we make decisions about not just spending money but how we spend money and why. This is helpful to know when pricing. He also introduces the concept of relativity in making expenditures. Since spending money on art is very personal and subjective, understanding the intersection and synergy of the details that go through the mind is essential in pricing. It's written in easy English and only about 150 pages. Relatively painless and priced for free at the library or $27.00 in bookstores, this is a sound expenditure.
