Tina: I am City of London Guide, qualified June 2011. A lover of history so an ideal job!
Made redundant from my full time job end 2012. So decided to take the leap and Guide
What started as a hobby has become a business by default. Made redundant unexpectedly in Nov
I had already started looking for business by using my blog & joining assocn. Plus the business card

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.
