Some good advice from Jools. Yes, from what I understand taking photos is a small part of the job. Selling yourself, networking, liasing and of course post production takes up an awful lot of time. I guess you can never rest too, getting out there on the days off (?) and building up the stock library. I look at how much time I spend on my hobby at the moment, it consumes most of my spare time one way or another.
Apropos the lens, the 15-85mm gets a good write up but I'd suggest staying with your 18-55mm and put the money towards a better lens later on, especially if you're serious about working as a professional. I'm looking at the 17-40mm L, 24-70mm L and the 24-105mm L. I want to invest in a good lens that is primarily designed for a full frame body even though I have a 60D as I want to upgrade as soon as my budget allows.
