About Small Business Essentials, Inc.

Do what you love and the money will follow!!

Small Business Essentials, Inc., was born in 1996 (then known as LDF Enterprises) when the owner, Linda Foix, took a leap of faith, and proceeded to find out what business ownership was all about . . . I love helping people, I’m organized, I work independently, I have 17+ years experience . . . I can do this!

I had set up and managed two small law offices. I was the pre-opener & closer of client files. I loved the deadlines and client interaction. I enjoyed screening new potential clients, making sure all the open items were completed. I thrived on troubleshooting client issues, staff issues, my boss’ issues, & I loved it when we had no issues. For 17+ years, I handled the day to day bookkeeping, payroll, recruiting, training, equipment purchases & setup, coordinating & event planning.

I also worked as a free-lance legal secretary for 5+ years, working in many of the Minneapolis downtown law offices. Most times I was put into desks that needed to be setup or had hard to work with attorneys. They always marveled at my productivity. I often received bonuses at year end.

Prior to that I worked as a bookkeeper for an electrical company, accounts payable for a manufacturing company, helped develop & was administrator for an out patience chemical dependency program, Church Administrator & Youth Education Director. Oh yes, I am also a massage therapist, my creative side. I massage your body not your books!

All this prepared me for what I am doing now. SBE is a natural fit for working with multiple business professions. We know what questions to ask and are not afraid to ask them. We set goals together focused on the needs of your company and work style, assign tasks and get the job done.

I originally set out to create a job for myself. I wanted to work out of my home, be my own boss, master of my own destiny. In 2006, I was busting at the seams & hired my first employee. SBE now has two full time employees.

Helping people do well in their business & life is what we are passionate about. Thank you for visiting our website!
