Just a correction, you gain the ability to train professions at level 5 not 10. Also a pair of tips on making money and levelling faster: 1) grab skinning and herbing or mining and sell the materials on the AH;2) make your first investment the biggest bags you can afford, and upgrade the bags regularly. Big bags = more loot you can carry = less time travelling to sell items and more time killing and questing = faster levelling.

I absolutely second both of these tips. I tend to direct newer players toward herbing rather than mining because a) it's generally less annoying than mining (less running around out of the way) and b) the herbalism self-heal is probably the single most useful leveling benefit you'll get from any profession.

In fact the gathering professions (Herbalism, Mining and Skinning) can be learnt at level 1.

Another tip that took me ages to realize, when you're offered a load of quest rewards and don't need any of them you can select the items you're not able to use (the ones in red). This is useful because plate tends to sell for a lot more than cloth (and weapons even more than plate) and by selecting the plate option you'll usually be able to vendor it for quite a bit more than the cloth option.I think Blizzard now tell you how much each item vendors for in the tooltip but if not theres addons that will do it for you so you can be sure to select the reward with the best monetary value.

Yup! Bags, bags, bags! Best single investment for new 'toons (aside from wand for casters). More storage in the field = more money. More money = accelerating advancement of the character.The second best advice is don't buy crap from the AH. With a few exceptions (wands) you DON'T NEED IT.
