You Rob The Bank, I'll Run!

"You Rob The Bank, I'll Run!”   is the 7th in my 2018 series of 'Winter Warmers' original copyright press releases sent from my happy home in the sunny south of Portugal


It was two older boys, capitalising on my gullibility, who first introduced me to the “You rob the bank and I'll run” philosophy. Their dastardly plan was to saunter by the fruit shop and, if all was clear, signal to me to follow up and nick apples from the street display for all three of us. So they wandered up the road, gave their all-clear signal, I followed on and grabbed the apples and … was immediately collared from behind by the massive fist of an angry shop owner! My 'friends' scuttled off laughing hilariously at the success of their set up while I was hauled inside and subjected to a terrible grilling with threats of police and parental involvement. But I sobbed the apologies of a terrified eight year old and was eventually released without further action. I won't claim that I never again nicked an apple but I did learn not to assume the risk in a situation while affording someone else the potential benefit.

Several years later I was approached to sign for a football club of which the president was the self-same fruit merchant! When we met and I reminded him of the circumstance of our previous encounter he replied, “Well you're better at scoring goals than at nicking apples!” Then he added, “You're successful on the field because you take risks, I like that. But behind you here there is a whole team, both on and off the field, who will be with you and pulling for you all the time. You won't be left to shoulder responsibility alone.” It was a smart pitch, I signed for the club. And when I entered into business I instinctively put into practice those same philosophies instilled in me. I deliberately sourced only the highest quality clients and colleagues to work with, those I could rely on and respect. I never exposed myself to a “You rob the bank, I'll run!” scenario which did not spread risk and share reward equitably between all.

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

Your input is appreciated so please comment on ”You Rob The Bank, I'll Run!”


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 trouble-shooting). From my successes I grew my own group of small companies.

Today I host my 'Wake Up Leisure and Learning Breaks', personal mentoring and business guidance, in the tranquility and calm of the sunny south of Portugal and I am the author of several best-selling books on the subject of successful living.

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

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