Starter Tools for Small Businesses

Since I started my business I have spent many hours testing, trialing out all different types of applications that can help me run my business more efficiently.  Since I come from a corporate background, I have an expensive taste, but a VERY small budget when I started.  I want to pass on  to you my tools that I use.  These applications are what I have found to be top notch on support and continue to provide numerous ways for me to run my business easily.
Many of these links are affiliate links, which means I may get a commission if you purchase. However, none of the fees of these resources have been increased to compensate me. In fact, many of them I provide a special discounts that I got when I started and now I am providing it to you!
