I use Wave Accounting for my invoicing and accounting process and even better it's free. I'm a huge fan of Freshbooks, but dropped to cut costs.

I use Google Docs (Now Drive) to sync my files and back up (cheaper than Dropbox). I use Google Docs the majority of the time for my documents.

Evernote to track my projects and content.

Basecamp (in combination with Evernote) to manage most of my client projects.

Insynchq to sync my Google Documents (works just like DropBox)

Amazon S3 to archive any documents and to use for downloads of products I sell.

Skype (another thumbs up) and I'm starting to use Google Hangouts more as well.

It looks like they have you covered on the software. I was looking at your site and it's very nice. Clean and professional, but I do have a couple things below.

Correct error: About Page: 2nd paragraph, 2nd sentence "Our goal is to simplify the daily grind for people who want to free themselves of the dreaded administrative details to focus more on increasing revenues." [missing the word "to"]

Font to small: Virtual Assistant Services Page: This is really difficult to read. Can you increase the size?

Other suggestions: I would consider adding client testimonials and do have a blog or plan on blogging. A blog is a great way to keep your website moving with fresh content.

Rhonda,

Thank you so much for the great input. Changes made on the 2nd paragraph. Question, did you click on the chart to increase the size? If so, still too small? I will work on that ASAP!!! Was thinking of adding a blog eventually it was actually on my to-do list.
This is the reason why I joined this forum. Great, friendly and informative feedback from my fellow VAers!!! Thank you again Rhonda!!

Nick

Microsoft OneNote is great for note taking and organizing notes. It organizes your notes like a binder. I have to say it has become one of my favorite softwares.

Sugarsync to back up files and I use a website called Podio if I'm working with a team. It's a pretty awesome site to keep everything in one spot at one time. I love dropbox but the only thing I can think of that you didn't mention was Sugarsync. It's great to keep important files backed up.
