Download the free version of Quickbooks to keep track of income and expenses. It will let you have up to 20 customers. After that, you have to buy a user license.

To get more yards, start talking to people you know. Tell them what you are doing and ask if they know anybody who may be interested in services. Have some business cards printed to give to folks you talk to. That's the cheapest and perhaps most effective way to get business. I've got about 20 accounts right now with most of them being from word-of-mouth. I have gotten several from my website, and that's a good thing to have, depending on your growth goals.
