As The Micro Business Mentor, Tina Boden works with clients to ensure their wellbeing and the wellbeing of their business is as good as it can be, she knows from personal experience that one most certainly impacts the other. In early 2022, having realised what effect the global pandemic had had on so many micro business owners worldwide, Tina founded The Micro Business Mentor Club.
THIRD GENERATION SELF-EMPLOYED, TINA HAS BEEN RUNNING MICRO BUSINESSES IN DIFFERENT SECTORS, INCLUDING HOSPITALITY, PROPERTY LETTINGS AND MANAGEMENT, PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT AND RETAIL FOR OVER 30 YEARS AND IS A LEADING VOICE FOR MICRO BUSINESS IN THE UK.
She knows a thing or two about how the smallest of businesses tick and shares her knowledge and expertise not only with clients but with press and media when called upon and as a speaker at events. Alongside that Tina gives time to charities and good causes sharing her wealth of knowledge in the creation and development of positive legacy funds.
Helping micro business owners to develop, flourish and enhance both themselves and their business is a key focus of Tina’s day to day life. Community engagement and collaboration are two more areas she has great strength in. Tina believes linking all these together helps create stronger and more effective people, businesses and places. Always keen to make a difference through positive action, Tina co-founded #MicroBizMatters Day and the #MicroBizMatters Movement with Tony Robinson OBE. For 10 years Tina and Tony were on a constant mission to make life in micro business better, hosting the only annual day of recognition, action and learning for those that employ 0 to 9 and turnover less than 2 million annually. On the 10th Anniversary of their work, in January 2022, Tony and Tina retired from #MicroBizMatters activities to focus on other aspects of their work life blend.
