Help People Rather Than Take Advantage

"Help People Rather Than Take Advantage”   is the 14th in my 2018 series of Tom's Summer Shorts original copyright press releases sent from my happy home in the sunny south of Portugal


Iain was anything but your normal city solicitor. Not only because of his fisher-folk family origins and traditions and accompanying dialect, both of which he steadfastly adhered to, but even more so because he maintained that his professional role was to help people rather than take advantage of them. To that end he would put the interests of his clients first and, in his characteristically homely manner, advise them in 'their language' as to their best, and least costly, courses of action; often divulging to them in the process what he saw as the less than proper practices of his colleagues which they should watch out for and avoid.

Not unexpectedly these factors put him at odds with the majority of his profession who saw him as a loose cannon and a threat to their established and lucrative practices. But Iain was popular with the community at large, well respected for his practical and ethical approach and brought in a lot of business to the firm as a result. So the powers that be could not fire him, choosing instead to keep him 'on a leash', confined to a back office and without prospect of promotion.

None of this concerned Iain, for him it was a case of work as normal. But increasingly he grew to loathe his profession and those immoral practitioners in it and turned more and more to his past-time of practicing homeopathy. This work had always fascinated him and he derived great pleasure from it. He could see close up the benefits his homeopathy brought to his patients. So he studied for his doctorate in the subject and in due course was able to abandon his legal career and indulge his true passion.

He bought an old country cottage in a rural village not far from the fishing town of his birth, close to his family and friends and the kinship of the local people. There Iain set up his homeopathy practice, discarded his striped suit and settled for a life of service to his community. Not a hugely profitable concern but a thoroughly satisfying one. One where he could truly help people rather than take advantage of them!

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

Your input is appreciated so please comment on “Help People Rather Than Take Advantage”



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 in the self-help, business and successful living genres.

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

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