Small business help – SCORE

Tax info – IRS Small Business and Self-Employed Tax Center

Seattle business networking – Biznik

Free & cheap software

OpenOffice – No, it’s not Word or Excel, and it’s certainly not PowerPoint, but free is always good

The Small Business Web – All the software you could possibly want, everything from CRM to email to scheduling, invoicing and shopping carts. All free or mega-cheap, and all integrated. If you need software to do something, and you’re short on cash, take a look here.

Disclaimer: These folks pay me money to write articles for them. I consider that a sign that they recognise quality when they see it ; ) It’s limited to tracking income & expenses for your Schedule C, but what it does, it does nicely.


I’m not gonna lie to you, Marge. I use a Windows PC at work because it’s what the tax software runs on. At home, I’m a Mac fan from way back to my first Apple IIc. But if you’re looking for a way to run your computers without buying Mr Gates or Mr Jobs another Ferrari, Linux might be for you.
