Meet John & Ida - The Faces of Guida Accountancy
After 30 years of employment working with clients but to a strict ‘time is money’ policy, I wanted to make a change. I wanted to give my clients the time and level of service they deserve, without forsaking my health, happiness and life values – and without them fearing large bills at the end of it.
I set up Guida Accountancy to do just that, to transform the outdated stereotype of the grey man in the grey suit (apart from the grey hair that is).
I was lucky that Ida came into my life, she was the final piece of the jigsaw, the perfect companion for me (though she does sleep on the job a bit too much!) and we were ready to go.
I’m Ida, a 3 year old Labrador/Golden Retriever cross.
My role at Guida Accountancy is as Head of Mindfulness and Wellbeing. I am the calming influence who maintains my dad’s grounding, wellbeing and, at times, sanity.
I came into my dad’s life in May 2019, just before my second birthday.
I started my career as a trainee guide dog. Unfortunately, that didn’t quite work out for me, but my training has not gone to waste.
I am now an integral part of my dad’s business.
