Tina Boden is no stranger to running micro and small businesses, the importance of customer service or the hospitality industry. It has been part of her life since the age of 2 when her parents gave up the security of employed life and bought a pub between York & Harrogate that become their first of three hospitality renovation projects. Tina went on to study Hotel, Catering & Institutional Operations when she left school before joining the family business. At the age of 21 Tina bought her first business with her Mum, a property letting and management agency, that she owned for over a decade.
Working with micro businesses to guide them with development & growth is the key focus of Tina’s day to day life. Whether working one to one with the business owner, providing virtual assistance, offering marketing support or stepping in while they take a break, Tina Boden, The Tiny Troubleshooter, and sometimes Mrs B, The B and B Keeper, ensures the wellbeing of the micro business, and it’s owner, is as good as it can be
Co-founder of #MicroBizMatters Day and The #MicroBizMatters Movement, working to make life better for those that employ 0 to 9 and turnover less than £2 million annually, Tina is one of the leading voices for micro business in the UK. Having run her own businesses in different sectors – property letting & management, property development, retail and hospitality – for nearly 30 years, Tina, The Tiny Troubleshooter, knows a thing or two about how the smallest of businesses tick, they do not call her @MicroBizGirl for nothing.
