Chris Kocina, the owner of LivFree Bookkeeping LLC is a professional bookkeeper who helps tattoo artists worry less about money so they can focus on the work they love to do. He has always had an interest in numbers and finance and helps business owners stay on top of theirs. His compassion and willingness to help make clients feel valued and understood with the comfort of knowing they are in good hands.
Chris grew up in the small town of Red Wing, MN, and graduated from Red Wing High School in 2007. After high school, he aspired to become a rock star but realized that financially, it was a tough road to travel and started working at a leather production company in his hometown. Not satisfied with being an employee, he decided to attend Minnesota State College – Southeast Technical for Supervisory Management and Business Management where he graduated both degrees with a 4.0 GPA.
Initially wanting to climb the corporate ladder at his, then, current job, he quickly realized that the corporate structure was not for him and that working for someone else was taking away the freedom he desired to spend on his true passions in life – music, art, and snowboarding. In college, he learned the importance accounting plays in any business and realized that it was something he loved to do and wanted to master. Knowing what he wanted to do, he set out and created LivFree Bookkeeping, LLC. Since then, he has been helping his clients save money and achieve peace of mind. His company has provided him with a “live free” lifestyle where work and play are balanced, and the line is sometimes blurred. Is it called work when you love what you do? This lifestyle is what he helps his clients achieve when they delegate the work that drains them and instead focuses their efforts on what fuels their fire.
Chris has always had a love for music and art and desired the tattooed rock star look of his idols and discovered a passion for the works of tattoo artists. It is no surprise that tattoo artists are his ideal clients, and the industry is something he is passionate about.
Chris approaches his clients' work with the same energy and motivation as he did in college; leave no questions unanswered and begin with the end in mind- total satisfaction. Through the initial struggles of starting his own business, he realized this was a tremendous opportunity to help others who are also experiencing the ongoing efforts of entrepreneurship. Bookkeeping provides an excellent platform for the win-win mentality, as his clients grow, so does he.
