Ron Rea, Owner The Office Shop, Inc.

“Great financial services provide you with more than an accurate account of where you’ve been–they also help you plan where to go. Where People Count provided loyal, patient and nimble bookkeeping services for our organization during a time of tough, re-organizational change! We have emerged stronger and with a clearer perspective on what we’ll need to advance both mission and sustainability of the Red Cross in the Upper Peninsula.
Kayla West, Executive Director American Red Cross – Central Upper Peninsula Chapter
Linda is a valuable asset to my business! Her knowledge of quickbooks and tax issues are exceptional. At double the rate you would still be getting a bargain!!! Professional and confidential…an A+ in my book.”

Dave Sprenger, Owner & Treasurer Laurium Manor Inn

“I give Linda Hale and her company my complete endorsement as a bookkeeper . I have worked with Linda since 2003 as the Treasurer of a nonprofit organization and then later as our bookkeeper for our hotel. She also brought us through the process of forming a corporation and a limited liability corporation. In both instances I have been thoroughly impressed with her knowledge of QuickBooks and accounting rules and have been very pleased with her accessibility.”

Wendy Sue Deerwester, Office Manager Northland Electric of Ontonagon County, Inc.

“I can only give a glowing testimonial to Linda Hale and her staff at Where People Count. Linda has been with the company I manage before I came along. When I took over as full time office manager, I could not have done it without Linda. She taught me alot about what I have to do and she was very patient with me and she still is. I still rely on her for any questions or problems that I have. She does my year ends due to the fact that I could never do that task myself. If you are looking for the greatest Certified Accountant I would recommend only Linda Hale and her staff.”

Linda and her staff are fast and efficient with all our requests. It is such a rare occurrence these days to not only find someone who has all the answers but who is also willing to help you.

“Linda from Where People Count is fantastic.

Certainly I feel like Computer Mechanix and I “count”.
