About Lin

Lin is the founder of Common Cents Bookkeeping. Since its inception, the whole family has joined in on the fun.
Lin started her journey with bookkeeping & QuickBooks in 1995 for a company that published 4 area newspapers near the St. Cloud, MN area. After working with them for 8 years, she became the director of finances for a real estate and mortgage company located in Eagan, MN. Toward the end of the 4 years spent working for that company, she was approached by several individuals needing help with their bookkeeping. At that point, Lin started Common Cents Bookkeeping in February 2004 and has been going strong ever since. She is also offers photography services as Lin's Lens.
As a QuickBooks ProAdvisor, her goal is to provide quality bookkeeping services in a way that makes sense for the business owner, as well as for their accountant - saving the business owner both time and money in the process.
