We always think money makes the world go round, but if you're working with an individual, stand alone businesses, there's a lot more than money to work with.

I've been on the beta for about two months and have had the chance to do a review for you guys. The program is so simple to use but if you're too lazy to read there is a screen-share video at the end.
