I run a financial marketing business from home with no other employees. I wish to run Act! on both my desktop and laptop PC's. How do I keep them sync'd. I am not using a server, just the two PC and a home wireless network.

One database (likely the PC) would be the main database. From that you create a remote database to use on your laptop. You can sync them on a schedule or manually. The online help in Act! has a pretty good reference for doing that.
(You only need Act Pro for this.)

Do you want Internet access to your contacts? I use 2012 Premium (access via web) so I can access with my laptop (and iPhone) from anywhere with wifi. You will need to have a static IP on your router---most ISPs charge a modest fee for this.
Syncing databases is a solid option, but it is time consuming.
If you have a smartphone, I'd also check out Handheld Contact.
