Freebie Friday: Business & Art

I feel so bad, it has been WAY too long since I've posted a freebie friday so I apologize and felt I should give 2 in one post - just to sort of make up for my slacking. One thing that I love about the blog community is all the inspiration that swirling around and the art of inspiring; if that makes sense. What inspires you? Lots of times it's a beautiful photo, a view of nature, a rainbow, colors, the way a leaf fall on the ground. So many things inspire me on a daily basis, but sometimes reading about good business strategies, or "business" type books really get my juices flowing. I'm a nerd, I know! So hence the subjects of today's Freebie Friday: a little art and a little business tadaa!

First up, on the fabulous blog Design*Sponge - Alison Storm guests blogs about free software for business owners. These tools are so perfect for people who are just starting out, and why  not save a few bucks when starting a business! There are some things definitely worth spending the bucks on, and you should, but if there is a great deal out there - why not check it out!

So I went through all the items, and I picked out the best ones I felt would be the most beneficial for you business peeps.

Free Advice! SCORE: Counselors to America's Small Business
Free Shopping Carts: Magento & Zen Cart
Free Business Forms: Smartbiz
Free Financial Software: Quikbooks & Gnucash (less accounting like)

Feed Your Soul: The Free Art Project
This is SUCH an amazing site - please check it out HERE!

Basically, Jen Wallace from Indie Foxx created the amazing art project where every month artists are invited to create a piece of art that will be made available for a free download - how stinkin' cool is that! So each month check out the free download section. These are just a couple of my favs from this month. I hope you feel inspired!
