I am Annaline Dinkelmann. Ten years ago I left my Wall Street job and became a day trader.
That was fun to have all day to myself. But at the same time, very lonely. All my friends were at work and I had nobody to “play with”. In August 2007 I turned my passion for the stock market and business into a successful walking tour business called Wall Street Walks.
“Since day 1 of giving tours I realized I had become a travel planner. So many questions to answer when planning a trip. To help people plan I started by publishing an iPad travel magazine in 2012 called Dinks NY. Over time that morphed and became New York Travel Tips – a series of travel planning tips and guides for visitors to New York.”
