Jackie:  do u have time to read any biz books? if so what r u reading at the mo?

Tina:   the training is intensive, v good for memory still not sure how I recall it all! An interesting subject.  Did not think to do before – an incentive – many unusual aspects of women and their role through history ..

Tina:   No time for business books – its all history – ‘She Devils’ by Helen Castor – as on TV series

Jackie:  what is success about for u, is it all about the money?

Tina:   Not about money – especially not Guiding! About sharing k’ledge, getting response from group & ambassador to City.  Morning! love the guiding no money in it. Sharing history of the City a pleasure few bob helps though.

Jackie:  Good morning Wendy, thank you for joining us – do u have a question for Tina?
