A Real Life Role Model

"A Real Life Role Model" is the 17th in my Tom's Summer Shorts series of holiday press releases sent from my happy home in the sunny south of Portugal


My name is Tommy, I want a jedi master lightsabre ... and I'd like to be a role model.” What?! Has Santa ever in his eternity of Christmases sat a child on his knee and received that response to his perrenial question? I think not. Yet much is made in present times of media celebrities and sports stars behaving in ways that “are not a good role model.” But they never set out to be role models! Their ambition as kids growing up was to be footballers, ballerinas, rock stars, engine drivers, astronauts ... anything ... but never a role model.

Valerie Weir wanted to become a nurse. And I, for one scorching childhood summer, was persuaded with ease to put aside my footballing aspirations and be her 'doctor'. How the game came to be called 'doctors and nurses' is a mystery. After all, how many real-life doctors and nurses spend their time examining only each other? … don't answer that. But one suspects that the phrase, “I'll show you mine if you show me yours”, does not figure highly as doctors' opening gambits to patients in medical surgeries throughout the land.

And what were my parents thinking of when allowing me to erect my tent in the garden for the duration of the summer and then spend every waking hour huddled intimately therein with the delectable Valerie? The same Valerie who, later on in my mid teens, I would be so painfully in love with that I couldn't even bring myself to speak to her! On the other hand, George Allen the local baker's son, showed no such reticence in engaging her in conversation … as well as in an advanced version of 'doctors and nurses' which quickly resulted in a teen pregnancy and a hastily arranged marriage.

So married Valerie got expelled from her smart school and went to work in the bakery shop. One day I saw her in the shop window. She gave me a friendly waive and smile, then launched into an impromptu display of 'window dressing'. Adopting a Statue of Libertyesque demeanour she donned a white table-cloth robe, a large French croissant tiara and bagel ear-rings. An erotically brandished baguette and a strategically positioned dumpling completed the pose.

Now that's what I call a ROLL model!

I am Tom Riach. I live and write in the sunny south of Portugal.

It took me some years to establish myself in business but I believe that in life only the most resolute of tryers will prevail and after several years of a bank account in a permanent state of cardiac arrest my perseverance began to pay!

I became a successful Business Consultant, Investment Adviser and award-winning Salesperson and Marketing Professional and I coined the term 'Creative Solutions' to describe my work in devising and implementing innovative approaches to situations in business, commerce and industry (some call it touble-shooting). From my successes I grew my own group of small companies.

By later years I had realised that sheer sweat and toil did not represent the smartest or swiftest routes to wealth. Entrepreneurs, I observed, had always existed able to create fortunes from little apparent effort and I became increasingly fascinated by this phenomenon. I set out to emulate this approach and such was my success that by 1996 I could 'retire' at an early age to the tranquility and calm of South West France. I later moved on to Southern Portugal.

CONTACT ME – I'll be thrilled to hear from you!

The life of which you dream is HERE within your grasp!
