When you get grounded with HTML and CSS, look for an ecommerce solution that you can use for your clients' sites. Just do a search and read up on them. Some popular ones are osCommerce, Magento (still in beta though), Zen Cart, Virtuemart (which is a component that works with the Joomla content management system), and a bunch of others. You don't necessarily have to know php, ajax, js, etc.; if you know local freelancers, you could contract work out to them and vice versa. But if you have time, it is great to be familiar with these languages. Also consider learning Flash. Everyone seems to want it on their site these days.
There are tutorials on http://www.lynda.com. They are not free but you can write them off as business expenses.

Forgive me for a quick shameless plug...my web site, http://www.thoughtsandrambles.com has links to a lot of web sites that I have found useful for the purpose of learning web design...The comments on those links pretty much give my opinion of each one, and save me the time of retyping it here :)

Yes, you will need to learn Dreamweaver etc. especially php because you will need to know how to set up a dynamic site.
