As an entrepreneur I've learned a lot about successful living and how to make the most of whatever life throws at me. So as a business consultant, life coach and writer my mission is to inform, inspire and ignite you to take action; to seize control of your own life by leveraging your own skills, talents and abilities in the same way as I have done. Learning and earning should be fun, so my books are both humourous and enlightening. Texts are based on my own real life experiences and expressed in simple, easy language. I'm told that they are a joy to read and very often life changing too! Judge for yourself.

Mastering The Art Of Making Money

Why can one person create vast wealth with apparent ease, whilst another flounders in permanent poverty? Is there a secret to success known only to a few? I assert that there is no short cut to riches but that there is an art to making money based on the manner in which you conduct your life; and by altering the way you think of success and by following my simple strategies you may well come to master it! With a mix of real life experiences, fun stories, professional insights and a powerful punch, I disclose in exact detail how to fulfill your dreams of wealth and prosperity. This book is my blueprint to spectacular financial success. The life of which you dream is here within your grasp! Click to see Amazon page.

Self-Improvement Should Be Fun!


"This book gives a gloriously original view of personal development, what it is and what it means. It is seriously well written, addresses the topic with real authority, is often very funny and is inspirational too! There is no other book on the subject comes close to matching the author's unique mix of gravitas and humour. Joseph T.Riach (Tom) has brought his lifetime of experience in assisting people in their lives and businesses to life in vivid fashion in a rich blending of his personal views, experiences, anecdotes and conclusions. He expresses with authority and clarity his belief that bettering yourself should be an enjoyable endeavour and helps you to identify why and how personal development will work for you. His motto is to live life, laugh and love! - and become a better person as a result." - literary review. Click to see Amazon page.

That's me (left in photo) presenting Peter Giacomini with the first proof copy of his autobiographical novel which I re-wrote, edited and published for him. The Cardboard Suitcase is biographical but it's also a romantic adventure presented with passion and humour. Peter's story spans six decades, four continents, a host of countries, people of all shades and dozens of the world's finest luxury hotels. It's an epic tale of a lad born into poverty in northern Italy but who cherished a dream to wait on the rich and famous in the splendour of grand hotel restaurants and whose eventual rise in the industry far exceeded even his wildest ambition. This roller coaster of a read will make you smile, wonder, grimace and applaud in turn; it gives an intimate insight into the 'behind-the-kitchen-hatch' workings of international five star hotels and their restaurants such as you never dreamed existed!

I am essentially introvert, so get much of my energy from being alone. I hate small talk and large groups. I'd rather listen and think than speak, and write rather than talk. I rarely answer the phone. Fortunately the online world suits me, I can attract an audience and connect with readers while still spending time alone ... and writing!

As a young man it took me some years to establish myself in business but I believe that in life only the most resolute of triers 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 calm and tranquility of the sunny south of Portugal and indulge my passion for writing. I am the author of several best selling books in the self-help, business and successful living genres.

Feb 2019 - I'm now well into the final phase of work on my latest book. It's a continuation of my present series giving new insights into how to conduct both your life and your business more profitably. It's titled Winning Big In Life And Business. I'm tentatively looking at a March/April 2019 publication date.

I've also commenced writing a 'motivational mystery novel' for publication next year. I'm really excited about this project! More details of that here soon.

My most recent writing project, the rewriting/editing of a biographical romantic adventure for an Italian client is now complete and available in both Paperback and Kindle formats. It's a compelling, often hilarious read. You can learn more about it at The Cardboard Suitcase and purchase it there.

With December came the apparent end of the rainy season here in the south of Portugal. Temperatures dipped but the climate remains mild and pleasant. The last of the tomatoes and strawberries are still growing and the new orange crop will be with us in coming weeks. So no shortages in those departments.

I spent Christmas in Ayamonte, in Spain, staying at the beautiful Parador there. Paradors are quality hotels usually located in ancient monuments such as castles or monasteries, the tourism income paying for the renovation and upkeep of the sites. It makes for a unique ambience and holiday experience. We relaxed, chilled out, ate too much delicious Spanish food and paddled in the sea in beautiful, warm weather on Christmas day. I came home, refreshed and relaxed, ready to write - and to enjoy my fun life of course!
